Bridgeport Hop Czar Imperial IPA

I have been a fan of Indian Pale Ales for many years now. I have tried many and have liked or loved most. If you mess up a IPA you are in a world of distaste but I have been fairly lucky.

I picked up Hop Czar at Kroger and tried it out. It's slogan is "A Robust Ruler of IPA is Here, All Hail The King". This is too cocky a statement for the IPA you get but it is still pretty good. I have only had two beers from Portland, Oregon; this beer and Dead Guy Ale which is also a pretty good beer. My good friend Molly L. is studying in Oregon now and if I had some free time I would love to visit her... and some of the brewery's. I had no idea that Portland had so many good beers.

If you are a fan of IPA's then this beer is for you. It is less hoppy than Dogfish head but it is worth a try.

How it was tasted: From a mug.
