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%.

sebletitje (6700) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
bomber @ RBBWG 2012, Antwerpen courtesy of ajax25g. Ambrée, col beige épais. Arôme de houblon renfermé au caractère fruité allant vers le tropical En bouche, même profile, houblon très présent donnant des notes de fruits avec en retrait un léger côté de pin. Malt reste en retrait et donne à la bière des notes de caramel et grillé. Agréable, et je retrouve là, le plaisir des IPA de la côte ouest.

JorisPPattyn (7929) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2012
Small rim of foam; slightly veiled amber-orange beer. Fruity, very hoppy, but also cats’ pee/valerian. Citrus, passion fruit, Passoã. Hopoils, bit of caramel/cake bottom. Long bitter finish. Quite slick, medium bodied, long hoppy lingering aftertaste. Average (meaning pretty good) IPA.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Hazy gold, decent sized sticky beige head. Aroma of biscuity malt, orange, woody earthy. Taste is nicely balanced but fairly malty with pine bitterness.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2011
650ml bottle pours a golden orangeish color with 3 fingers of white head with great retention and leaving some lovely lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrusy and earthy hops. Taste is citrusy and earthy hop bitterness balanced nicely with some malty sweetness. A great IPA with a medium body and spritzy carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the palate.

I love IPAs and I drink a lot of them. This is the best one I’ve had. Wonderful floral, citrus and even grapefruit aroma. Perfect balance of bitterness and malt. Fantastic dry hop finish!

AmEricanbrew (5847) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Clear dark golden color/ ivory head. Floral, citrus hop aromas. Medium bodied. Grapefruit, pine hoppy flavors on a solid pale malt base--good.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2011
A good looking beer. Cloudy copper color with small beige head. Balanced but gentle in the nose with malt and pine notes. Soft caramel malt up front and citrusy-pine quickly takes over. Nice medium hop finish, that leaves the mouth tingling.
