Anyhone know the hops used in Bridgeport IPA?

Just found some locally a few weeks back and really enjoy this beer.

Their web site says they use 5 varieties. I would wager that one of them is Willamette.

Bridgeport IPA is a good beer, it is probably my de facto beer when I'm out of town and go to a grocery store to buy beer. Being an IPA, it has enough hops where you know you're not going to get burned buying an oxidized six-pack.

While I don't know how close the recipe is, Beer Captured has a clone that claims it uses:

-Chinook for bittering
-EKG & Cascade for flavor
-Crystal, Cascade & EKG for aroma
-Cascade for dry-hopping

Bridgeport IPA is a very solid IPA.

The older Bridgeport IPA sixer holders used to mention lots of Willamette. I forget how many lbs. per bbl.

It sure has a strong Willamette flavor to my taste buds, given the few times I've used that hop. I don't taste much in Cascades, or a lot of "C-hop" flavor in all (but there is maybe a little).

In fact, I'd go out on limb even further and guess "Magnum" for bittering.

Thanks, Michael.

I looked at the Bridgeport web site and stopped there.

Ultra?
