Notes & Commercial Description:

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!

Served on tap at the brewery. Just a solid beer all around. Incredible nose, great balanced flavor, really hefty mouthfeel, clean floral-piney finish.

Had it on tap at the Brewpub. Was a little surprised when it won the Gold Medal. It's fairly well balanced, but a little too much on the dry/piney/bitter side for me. Wasn't a go to IPA for me before and probably still isn't, but is a good representation of the style.
