Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Year-round

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!

22oz bottle into tulip.

A: Pours a deep amber color with an oily, thick off-white head that faded into a well retained collar. Sticky rings of lace were left down the glass.
S: I get notes of grapefruit and earthy hops and flowers. There's a musty leafy herbalness as well.
T: Bitter lemon, earthy herbal hops, lemon peel, minty herbs, and a tingly numbing evergreen freshness in the finish. The aftertaste is green and minty, with just a hint of cat urine.
M: medium full body, thick and greasy mouthfeel with chewy carbonation, slight alcohol astringency, solid bitterness.
O: Average. Not my favorite hop profile, but not bad though.
