Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
"Our take on the classic India Pale ale style - the favorite craft beer of the Northwest. This amber colored brew is loaded with four different types of hops during the brew day and then gets dry hopped. Our IPA has a huge citrus and pine character with a strong, but refined bitterness."

4.1/5  rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

appearance - nice transparent orange with offwhite head, foamy, not much lacing

smell - citrus aromas

taste - grapefruit/citrus and pine hop profile, very hop forward, nice body but the malts play a backdrop

mouthfeel - medium body, great carbonation, medium dry finish

overall - a solid ipa in a saturated market, excellent flavor profile, would definitely seek this out again

Serving type: on-tap

on tap at Punch Bowl Social, Portland

Bright brass.
Simcoe nose: pine, cat, passionfruit.
Caramel and apricot, then dank, pineapple, and resin hops.
Light to medium, oily, chewy.

Gooey hop hit in a light body. Sticky and fun. Pale and round but blah.

4.13/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Serving Type: Bottle, bomber-size.

Appearance: pours hazy amber with small off-white head.

Smell: Citrus, mostly grapefruit with a faint sort of spruce-like finish.

Taste: Very flavorful, citrus, mostly grapefruit.

Mouth feel: Lightish mouth feel for what is otherwise an outstanding IPA, I like my IPA with a silkier or slightly viscous mouth feel so I didn't rate this IPA as highly.

Overall: An outstanding IPA and well worth the effort to find it on tap.

Serving type: bottle

3.81/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Floral & grapefruit aroma with some vanilla notes. Pours semi-hazy, gold / orange in color with a thick head and lots of lacing, slow to dissipate. Taste is heavy! pine and lots of grapefruit hops, some floral notes, almost chewy in the mouth with a bitter, resin-y finish. A little too thick & chewy & "hop-dank" resinous for me but still a very good beer. Others will obviously love this and Breakside is an excellent brewery.
