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%.

Tasty IPA with a solid malt backbone that’s loaded with caramel flavors. Lesser notes of toast and crackers. Hops are earthy, floral and herbal. Balanced bitterness. Fruity, too, with gummy elements of apricots, peaches and pears. Very drinkable and sessionable. I happily drink this beer wherever I see it.

On tap at the brewery. Pours bright orange, a little cloudy, with creamy frothy head. Stunningly beautiful. Pine, melon, and citrus are very apparent. Full of resin and a mouth-wallop long bitter finish. Creamy, oily mouthfeel. An excellent example of this style -- tasted against Pliny the Elder at another Seattle location and it darn near held its own (even as just a single rather than double IPA). This brewer has mad skills.

From tap at Naked City Brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruity and citruy hoppy. Crisp bitter and dry. Ends dry and hoppy into the finish.

Bomber poured a clear tarnished copper with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, pine, skunk bud, grapefruit and light orange zest. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, pine and grapefruit with a smoth dry lingering bitter finish.

Orange golden / amber colour, white head. Aroma of fruity hops. Malts, citrus, grapefruit, slight caramel, loads of American hops. Pine resin and somewhat sweaty odours. Flavour is fruity, bitter touches. Long dry resinous bitter finish. Nice.

Little cloudy orange beer, some chunks floating around, small off-white head, unstable. Aroma: very fruity, passion fruit, lots of peaches, bit piny, bit of stinky feet. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, peaches, piny bitter touch, citrus, some grapefruit. Aftertaste: resin, little fruity, bitter dry ending. Everything you would expect from a good IPA.
