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."

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.

Bomber served fresh and cold into a shaker pint glass.

Breakside's India pale ale (feel good flagship) is a pale yellow orange with great clarity. The head is thick and has good retention and great lacing.

Aroma is fantastic with tons of grapefruit citrus. Maybe a little one dimensional but it's a good dimension to go with for an IPA.

Flavor also has a powerful punch of citrus. It starts off a little sweet but then you get a big kick of hop bitterness. It's almost a session DIPA if there was such a thing.

Mouthfeel is medium to light in body and nicely carbonated. If anything it could be a little more full.

Overall an excellent IPA. It's exciting to see a small northwest brewery bringing their beers to colorado. I wish them well.

Good IPA - balanced hops up front with a clean finish. Refreshing, yet hearty without too much bitter.

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!
