COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Breakaway IPA is made with Vienna and Munich malts to give this beer its malty flavor blended with a generous amount of Amarillo and Simcoe hops, which give this beer its signature citrusy character. The starting gravity is about 15 degrees plato (S.G. 1068), which means that the alcohol by volume is about 7%.

Pours cloudy amber. Good head, crazy lacing. Smells of grapefruit, dish soap, lemon, spruce. Taste is malty, not sweet, some citrus bitter hop. More bitter than many IPAs. Palate is creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle. pours a dark amber color with a white head and moderate lacing. aroma is piney and citrusy, but more mellow than hoppy. flavor is resiny and with some mild citrus, and bitter on the finish, but quite smooth with some toasty notes and not very hoppy up front. surprising, but not bad.

Bottled: unk Hazy golden with a dome and rim of fine whites. Smells of Grapefruit, tangerines, malts are a bit oxidized with woody character, biscuit, resin and hints of pine. Decent nose. Taste is balanced with bitterness and sweet malts, the hops are resiny and piny with some grapefruit and a little touch of lemon. Medium bodied with lower carb and a wettish finish. Okay beer. Original review: 31AUG11 - 3/1.5/1.5/3/2 -1.83 Bottle date: unk ABV: 7.2% A: pours a toasted amber ale with near excellent clarity and a transient finger of white foam, falls to a broken sheet of the same. No lace. S: Smells like grass, weeds, soil, hay, grain and oxidized malts. Not impressed whatsoever. T: Bitter over sweet malts and cardboard. Some hints of honey on the finish. Not getting any substantial hop flavors, just underlying bitterness. Disappointment. M: Medium bodied with moderate carb. Semi-dry finish. O: This beer has no craft in it for me. I’m unimpressed at best. Poor first impression. Serving type: bottle 12-21-2012

mcberko (6017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2013
On tap at Rogue Wet Bar, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite dry and full of piney hops. Flavour brings out dry piney hops, floral notes and fairly harsh astringency on the finish - just enough crisp biscuity malt to back. Quite drinkable and thirst-quenching, but nothing overly interesting. Good stuff.

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - NOV 6, 2013
FROM NOTES: August 7, ’12 Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a shaker glass. A: Hop forward, with much citrus, some pine and floral notes, with just a hint of malt sweetness in the background. A: Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger, tan head of bubbly foam. Nice retention dissipates into some sudsy lace on the glass. T: A stronger hop presence than in the nose, but still not a hop bomb with lots of malty sweetness in the flavor. P: Pretty heavily bodied, hoppy, crisp and bitter. O: An undistinguished IPA in the plethora of the style

Vicious head - be careful when pouring - very pungent distinct piney taste. I liked it better on tap than out of bottle. Bottle is way over carbonated. Good change of pace though. Cheers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CapFlu (4475) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors. Pours a frothy white head atop a solid orange body. Nose is tinny and Seville oranges. Flavour is marmalade, solid malt base. Overly sweet. Okay.

RumRunner101 (745) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2013
Nice looking amber pour. Aroma is big piney NW hops with solid sweet malt tones. The flavour is all hops, finishing quite bitter. Not much malt complexity, but nice hop profile. Tasty.

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 23, 2013
Draught at the World Craft Beer Tasting 2013 in Osaka. Intriquing sweet fruity nose, orange blossoms and lemon. Decently hoppy initial / very mild and balanced in mid / fades out in final w/o much in the way of hop tracks. Nice aroma and a subtle sweetness. Good session IPA.
