The first IPA I ever tasted was a Bridgeport IPA, back in the early nineties. It was a memorable experience, and when I think of traditional IPAs, I still have that first Bridgeport in my head.
Hop Czar takes that well-balanced traditional IPA and just turns it up a couple notches. It's got more hops and more malt and alcohol to balance it, but it's still very drinkable. It is deceptively strong and I've been known to have a few pints of this and then be surprised at how difficult it was to stagger in a semi-straight line away from the table.
Nice floral hop nose, excellent flavor with good malt and a proper amount of bitter finishing hops to clean up.
Damn good stuff!
