Bridgeport Dark Rain

CIMG5919

This seems to be a new seasonal for Bridgeport, but no mention is made on their website. They call it a Black Pale Ale, so I’m assuming a slightly less hoppy black IPA? Anyways, it features dark Crystal and wheat malts with Nugget, Chinook, Crystal, Centennial and Cascade hops.

Stats:
American Black Ale. 5.6% ABV. 60 IBUs. Oregon.

Very dark brown in color with a little bit of head and lacing on the glass.

A little bit of caramel, toasted malts, and chocolate on the nose.

Mouthfeel is light to medium body, but fairly light and has a fairly high carbonation.

Chocolate and a little bit of caramel coming through on the palate, hint of spicey hops and a slight earthy quality. Hops come in on the finish with a little bit of pine, grapefruit, orange, and just a little bit of bitterness.

It’s not too bad. It’s a fairly typical black IPA with just a little bit less hops, but worth a buy. 85 points.
