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%.

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

Clear dark golden color/ ivory head. Floral, citrus hop aromas. Medium bodied. Grapefruit, pine hoppy flavors on a solid pale malt base--good.

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.

Bomber. Pours a deep gold and rusted orange color with foamy beige head. Aroma is a blend of floral hops, candied citrus and earthty malt notes. The taste opens up with strong herbal hops bitterness and ruby red grapefruit flavors along with some pine and alcohol at the end. Underneath it all is a solid toasted malt backbone. The body is mildly creamy with medium-level carbonation and a citrusy, bitter finish. Well-balanced with a good dose of hops flavors.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy light amber with a foamy 3 finger off-white head. Lots of hop aroma - starts like pine but goes citrus. Med body. Thereís lots of hop over a nice caramel backbone. But the hop seems primarily resinous. Then at the finish itís grapefruit rind. Passing challenging. Really good, really hoppy.

22oz bottle. Iíve had this when it first came out, but havenít had it since the recipe fell under American Brewing. Pours a hazed light copper gold with a smaller tight slightly off white head that leaves some lacing. Bready malt forward with hints of resinous pine infused orange marmalade. More balanced in the malt profile on the palate, with the hops having light citrus in the front to mid but remaining bitter throughout and finishing with a lingering bitter resin. A little bit of chewiness in the body as well. This taste much better in the bottle than previous draft samples I have had.

22 oz. from Bottleworks. Iím surprised to see such a low score. This is a damn fine IPA with a lot of character. Maybe folks are burnt out on the citrus hops? The malts give the beer a backbone that would have left it rather hollow otherwise. And Iím a sucker for both Amarillo and Simcoe. Looking forward to future brews from ABC.

Bottle:   Hazy amber, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Musty hop nose, some citrus peel.   Somewhat piney on the tongue.   Bitter but not biting.   Nice smooth body, decent malt backing.   Seems like a classic/solid IPA to me.   Lingering hop resins, flavorful and thankfully not too harsh to make me over salivate.   Solid offering!
