BridgePort Kingpin Double Red Ale
This very hoppy red has a pleasant bitterness and nice balance of malty sweetness that you would expect from a red. The label says "Triple Hopped" so I guess they are on target. There is a hint of chocolate in the aftertaste. Would be good when you don't want a knock out IPA, but still want a little hoppy sting mixed with your malt.

BridgePort Hop Harvest
I tried the bottled version of Hop Harvest. Fresh hop beers don't stay fresh for long, so I suspect it might be a little more impressive on tap. Didn't have the flowery aroma and flavor that I expect from a fresh hop beer.
