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%.

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.

22 ounce bottle thanks to GCurlow. Somewhat malty with muted hop presence. Not sure if this is freshness issue or how it really is. Comes up short as a West Coast IPA.

Lagerboy (1255) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
Bomber. Clear redder medium copper, fading tan foam. Promising tropical fruity aroma is short lived. Bitter hoppy taste, earthy, dirty and floral, slightly sweet toasted caramel malt. Average carbonation, medium bodied, aggressively hopped. Gets grapefruity later on, finishes long and bitter. Could be designated an Impy. Paired well with Game 5. (Congrats L.A.!) DNFL (Definitely Not for Lagerboys)

onceblind (4287) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear dark golden under a tight white head. Fruity bitter nose of apricot and banana and slightly herbal hop resins. Flavor has a slightly acidic and herbal hop start that melds into an earthy and spicy malt finish. A bit woodsy and grassy too. Meh.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2163) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at Beer Keyaki Spring 2014. A clear copper pour, medium bodied, clean piney bitterness. OK, a solid IPA though it didn’t stand out.

Arayaga2 (1796) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Hazy orange color with a cm of white head. Aroma is biscuity malt, with sweet grapefruit notes. Taste is mild and malt-forward, but very pleasant and drinkable. $2/12oz

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Amber, a little chewy, earthy hop, quite a bit chewy, lots of crystal. So un-Seattle. The hops end up being quite muted and you end up with an oversized amber, which to me doesn’t really work.

Hanuta06 (331) - Washington, USA - APR 12, 2014
Serving: from tap at Pagliacci Pizza. Aroma: light pine hop. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with very good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Cloudy, light-amber body. Taste: lightly bitter initial flavor and lightly bitter, grapefruit finish with average duration. Palate: medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good.

Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malts, cereal, sweet bread and floral. Tastes of sweet malty bread, pine, floral and citrus hops. Very bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darker amber pour with a big white head. Aroma is grapefruit, burnt plastic, and malt. Taste is pretty much the same. Not sure what happened to this bottle... Drain pour.

Pours a clear golden amber with a massive scratch that explosive dull white head(definitely out of control) and a good amount of lace. Aroma is malty, citrus, fruity, kinda stale, some cardboard. Flavour is pine, grapefruit, fruity esters, carbonation is a bit high kinda stale, mild cardboard(maybe oxidization) well balanced medium bitterness and some caramel malt backbone also lending to a decent balance.
