Bridgeport Hop Czar

October 18, 2010

Oregon is the Bourdeaux region of American Craft Beer.  There are just so many great breweries in Oregon, and they are churning out so many great beers, that it is hard to keep up.  Hop Czar is the only beer from Bridgeport Brewing that I have had, and it is a good one.  The color is a bright, almost weird orange.  As soon as you pour this, you get hit in your nose with some strong citrusy hops.  Those hops carry over into the flavor, balanced with some breadlike malts and a slight burn from the 7.5% ABV.  Me likey this Imperial IPA very much, 8/10.
