Here's the backstory: Skip Madsen used to brew at Water Street Brewing in Port Townsend. It's not clear why he left Water Street, but he now works as something of a guest brewer at Baron, brewing his line of Breakaway beers in Baron's house. In this sense, Breakaway isn't a standalone brewery but has become the third label under Baron's umbrella.
Though Breakaway beers are rare birds, the good news is that this IPA is a fine drinking ale. It has a gorgeous hop garden flavor and smell, plastered lace and sizzling bitterness. It's not unlike chewing a tangerine rind for its bold citric and fruit flavors. The beer is clouded apricot colored and is unrepentant in its hop character. It's like a liquid hops grenade.
Serving type: on-tap

Well...After reading some of the other reviews I wondered but not for long....this Beer taste Good, well above some of the average or less I have tried lately. Maybe I was just ready to taste something Good for a change. I would definitely buy this again and enjoy it probably more. Not sure why it did not smell did not come through?
