4/5  rDev +15.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The appearance had a light orange/yellow body with a half finger white foamy head that rises a bit and then falls leaving some nice slightly foamy yet clingy lacing gracing the sides of the glass, carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace. The smell had lemongrass and citrus are up front, lightly malted coming forth in the background but stays mainly subdued for the most part, and there’s a nice spicey/pepperiness coming through to tie everything together. The taste had lemongrass/citrus leading to a tangy yet peppery almost spiciness, spicy aftertaste, dry finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, fairly sessionable. Carbonation seems good for an American Blonde Ale and good for me, becomes slightly crisp. Overall, actually this is one of Bridgeport’s best beers.

I had this in a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy golden yellow color with a decent transparency about it allowing some light carbonation to be seen rising.
The smell had a dry citrus cleaning grassiness about it. I guess that's the You juice but I've never had You juice, I'm only going with what I read on the beer.
The taste was the same with a nice spice added in.
The mouthfeel was light, somewhat drying but not too much. Semi - crisp and forgiving on my tongue.
Overall, other than Deschutes Summer Ale, this is one of my favorite Summer brews and is quite possibly BridgePort's best.
