Bridgeport Hop Czar

CIMG1854

This imperial IPA from Bridgeport is triple-hopped and bottle-conditioned. The hops include Nugget, Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial.

Stats:
Imperial India Pale Ale. 7.5% ABV. 85 IBUs. Oregon.

Dark amber in color with a nice head and lacing.

Hop aggressive nose with a lot of earthy-ness and pine pulling through with some citrus and vanilla. There is actually a little barn-yard funk on here for some reason.

Medium bodied, good mouthfeel.

A lot of citrus on the palate at first and then you get some more pine on the finish. Tons of orange and nectarines with some hop flower. It’s not too hoppy on the finish, decent balance. The flavor is actually kind of boring and muted.

It’s an alright beer, but just alright. 84 points.
