Bridgeport India Pale Ale ....

Tonight's beer will be the standard India Pale Ale from Bridgeport Brewing Company.  Twelve ounce bottle, 5.5% ABV.  Their web site shows 50 IBUs for this IPA.

This beer poured with a light to medium head.  It is a golden color, cloudy and with a fair amount of sediment.  The aroma is primarily of citrus.  I would give it a mild to medium on strength.  There is almost no bitterness, and the flavor is a mild mix of hops, citrus and malt.  Just a light aftertaste of "beer" - nothing prominent.  This would be a good beer for people who like milder IPAs, or perhaps a good IPA for wheat beer fans.
