Breakside’s most popular offering is this beautifully clear India Pale Ale featuring the unique character of Citra and Chinook hops. This light copper beer has huge citrus and tropical fruit aromas with hints of perfume and pine. Flavors like apricot, guava, and orange hit the tongue accompanied by a mild evergreen note. There’s just enough caramel sweetness to balance the hop flavors, but this is really a showcase for the beautiful varieties of hops grown here in the Northwest. Like all Breakside beers, this has a notably dry finish and, in true IPA form, a restrained but persistent bitterness. It’s one of the most drinkable IPAs around!

The gold medal winner within staggering distance of my house? Truly a blessing and a curse. This is the real deal. I have yet to try I beer from Breakside that I don't like, but this is definitely their best.

A near perfect IPA. Better on draft than from the bottle, but in my opinion this is the best IPA currently being brewed in Portland. And that, obviously, is saying something. Awesome beer.

This one pours a golden copper that's a bit hazy.

Smells like "juicing an orange into your nose." Jesus. Backed by a slight green grass and dinner roll.

This is a huge blast of juicy hops. Not as fruity as the nose, Wow. I'm having trouble describing the spectrum of species here, but it's quite full and balanced across the spectrum. Nice, dry and fruity without leaning too far in either direction. Nice.

Feels full and clean, with a soft silky rasp of carbonation.

This one's a gem. A great hop experience.

This has been my favorite Oregon single IPA since I first had it two years ago. I have not had many IPAs of any kind that are better. Enjoy!
