This beer was brought into this world in 2008. Hop Czar is a awarded winning beer. It won Sliver Metal in 2011 in Austrtralian International Beer Award.
Here is a descripation from the brewery’s website, which is www.bridgeportbrew.com:
BridgePort Hop Czar, an Imperial IPA brewed from our award winning IPA recipe, first introduced to rave reviews in 2008. It is a triple-hopped bottle-conditioned, Imperial-style IPA that carries a deep malt background with enthusiastic citrus and floral notes paired with high hop bitterness. The newest in our permenant 6-pack line, the Hop Czar recipe blends copious amounts of Nugget, Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops.
Here is a descripation from the bottle:
Hop Czar is a brewed with an irresponsible amount of hops and balanced by a robust malt backbone. Bridgeport revolutionized the IPA style and this Imperial India Pale Ale is a worthu bloodline to our award winning heritage.

In closing, I will be honest, which I am always, I am a huge fan of this brewery. This beer for the price you will pay is well worth it for the styple of beer.
