Picked up a 6-pack because the price was right and I also loved that Hop Czar Imperial IPA that BridgePort puts out. Not to mention the great artwork on the label that turned my head.

Appearance: Absolutely gorgeous amber with subtle ruby highlights with a creamy frothy head that looks like vanilla frosting on a red velvet cake.

Smell: Floral hop's, with just a bit of caramel malt note's.

Taste: The balance of caramel malt and hoppy bitterness is just about perfect. All the red ales I've tried in the past never tasted as good as they looked. This beer is shooting me straight to the moon.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation that fits, and a medium feel all around.

Drinkability: This beer has just made it into my top 5. It's that good.

I like red beers and this one ranks near the top of them. it has a high ABV% and it's not too pricey for a six pack of bottles so that makes it even better.

My first taste of Oregon's oldest craft brewery.

A: A beautiful brown with a hint of red, and a soapy head that holds up well. Very pleasing, not overpowering.

S: A wonderful bouquet of hops, malt, toast and semi sour apple.

T: Toasty and sweet, finishing hoppy and hints of fruity, sour esters. Smooth and full bodied to be red, hoppy like pale.

M: A fully body flavor and none of they dry that comes with some hoppy beers. Wet your whistle on this tasty beer.

O: This is one of those wonderful beers that is unique enough for the adventurous, but mild enough for the session drinkers. Definitely worth a try.

Yet again another Bridgeport beer that I know I am going to drink a lot of. This triple hopped double red ale is exteremely well balanced with the hops and malts. Definitely shows some good hops but it isn't so intense that it takes away from the sweetness of the malts. In my opinion the bitterness of the hops and the sweetness from the malts coincide very well, with neither ingredient dominating the other.
