Bridgeport Brewing - Hop Czar Topaz Copper IPA

Brewery: Bridgeport Brewing
Location: Portland, OR
Beer:  Hop Czar Topaz Copper IPA
Style: IPA
Serving: Snifter Glass (12 oz.) 
ABV: 6.5%
IBUs: 70

A : This beer has an orangish head with moderate lacing and quite a few bubbles clinging to walls of the glass.  This slightly hazy and darkish copper colored beer.

S : Tropical fruit hop aroma coming from the combination of Topaz and Bravo hops are supported by a strong malt backbone allowing

T : The hop flavor is muted a little from the aroma, the toasted flavor and caramel character start off in front. After a moment the grassy and tropical fruitiness flavors come through.

M : Very light, almost thin mouthfeel with a bitter back-end that stays with you after drank

O : Not my favorite beer from Bridgeport but definitely not a bad beer.  The lingering bitterness isn't exactly what I was hoping it would be.  That being said this is a pretty good beer I'd definitely pick up a six pack but don't think I'd chose it for one of my regular beer selections though.
