On tap at The Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a darkish orange color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like sweet pineapple, bit of caramel malt, some sharp grapefruit, and spicy pine.

This is super wonderful. It's a little sweeter than the flagship, with more malt character. There's not too much malt though- just enough to prop up the strong hop character- pineapple, tart grapefruit and lemon. It's super tasty and I need more.

This is light bodied, moderately crisp, with a good level of carbonation.

Another great beer from these guys. They are seriously killer.

Bought a 22oz bomber at John's Market. They move a lot of Breakside, so this should be fresh enough.

Hmmm.
Beer Advocate website says it is 6.60% abv.
Breakside website says 6.2% abv and 63 IBUs, but click on 'More Info' and it says it's 6.0% and 60 IBUs.
The label on bottle says 6.7% abv.
Hell's bells, brewing math isn't so tough !?

Pours a hazy straw, nice creamy head that lingers nicely. Rim of lacing.

Taste is mellow, a bit dry but gentle on the palate.

Solid brew, but I will stick to their IGA.

Pours an effervescent & slightly hazed gold with 2+ fingers of pearl colored head. Great head retention & lacing

S: Grapefruit & a little breadyness

T: Grapefruit, breadyness, mango up front. Mango, grapefruit, dryness & bready sweetness as this warms. Finishes with pomelo, grapefruit & a touch of tangerine & dryness

MF: Medium body, fairly firm carbonation, good balance

Tasty, easy drinking IPA, well worth a go

7/4/2016 - Happy Independence Day!!
Bottle: 22oz brown glass poured twice into a Dogfish Head 20yr anniversary standard pint glass, no date stamp on bottle : /
Another Top Top IPA


Among my top 7 fo sho. An absolutely uplifting brew. Literally, a giver of euphoria throughout and beyond its entire drinking experience. I'll add details when I make the time.

What else can I say? This is a favorite beer of mine. Thank you, Breakside.

Grapefruit juice, zest, orange and pine. Some wheat like flavors but more biscuit malt taste. Semi dry finish. Really well balanced ipa. Nice combo of bitterness and sweetness. Another really solid brew from Breakside.
