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%.

This should be classified as an IIPA. Big big malt and big big hops combine to make an excellent northwest style ipa. Malty and rich in the aroma followed up with a roundhouse kick of PNW hops, piney, grapefruit, fuzzy and citrusy. This beer teeters on being slightly too bitter...but then the malt balance tips the tables back toward balanced. The cracker-like malt is not lost in the dry finish.

I grabbed this beer as a "try new" beer... I found it to be one of the best, if.not the best IPA’s I’ve tried thus far. A light flavor with a mild hoppy taste, which leaves you with a mild aftertaste... which you’ll enjoy.

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
On tap @ Seahawks stadium. Light orange amber colour, medium off-white head. Aroma is a little stinky wet hair and citrus oil (I think the lines need cleaning). Flavour is thinnish malt (more reed/straw than caramel) and bitter citrus with some light pine. Better than any draft lager here, but not great by PNW IPA standards.

Suttree (4906) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Trade from curly - thanks!Reddish copper, thin beige head. Big grapefruit aroma, plus some pine and caramel. Flavor is hop dominated, of course, and a nice caramel base. Very tasty.

Seattle, Wa - on tap at Safeco Fieldhouse - Mariners-Twins game. Dark amber pour, off-white head, decent lacing. Aroma has some nice spruce accents, a touch of caramel. Flavor is full of bittersweet grapefruit, some nuttiness and a back end of caramel sweetness. Thickish mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

Bottle from QFC - Seattle (Ballard)
Hazy light amber color. Unpleasant aroma, paper and puke. Average flavor of malt and caramel, with strong bitterness but no fresh qualities.
Below expectations.

Cloudy amber color.great pungent hoppy aroma. Very complex flavor but overpresent hoppiness that is pleasant. Light pepper with a spicy pine boldness.
