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."

If you love your hops delivered as tangy citrus --- specifically grapefruit ---- then this beer is definitely your jam. Me? I'm more a stanky pine and juniper fan (ie.a Simcoe Amarillo Citra dude)
Very good beer, but not great for me.

Delightfully refreshing, balanced, and drinkable, plus a really reasonable price point for the bomber. Wish it came in 6 packs.

I had the bomber and served it extremely cold, needs to be around 45 - 50 degrees F for best taste.

Breakside is dark orange almost copper with perfect head.

Aroma is grapefruit, pine, earthy hop.

Flavor is a hop punch in the face with the end delivery leaving citrus, pine and guava on the pallet...but it doesn't linger.

Mouthfeel is medium.

Overall a wonderful IPA that I could drink regularly!

22oz bomber for $5.99. I only heard about this beer due to its recent GABF gold medal and I was skeptical. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Nice orange color, good head. Aroma was fruity, piney, hoppy. The flavor was seriously hoppy, grapefruit, citrus, touch of hop cones mixed with pine cones. I think I have returned for three or four more bottles since the first one, great IPA.
