Formerly a collaboration with Ninkasi Brewing. IGA highlights the route that lots of new hop bombs are headed: light in body, lighter in color, and HUGE in citrus flavor and aroma. India Golden Ale or "I.G.A." is a showcase for two relatively new hops, Mosaic and Eldorado. Mosaic gives the beer a bright mix of stonefruit and tropical flavors along with a big piney backbone. Eldorados are fruity and soften the finish. Breakside keeps the malt bill incredibly simple to allow the hops to take center stage in this elegant and beguiling beer. 8.1% ABV 60 IBU malts: 2 Row, British Munich hops: Mosaic, Eldorado, Chinook

Draught @ Breakside, Portland, OR. Pours golden orange with a smooth head. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus, fruits and hints of tropical notes. Taste is sweetish, fruity and hoppy with loads of citrus, grass, tropical notes and hints of grapefruit. Finish is smooth, sweetish and hoppy with some fruits, tropical notes and citrus. Okay DIPA.

From a 22. Pours a near-clear light gold with a one finger white head and good lacing. Smells very hoppy, citrus, clean. Very strong hop flavor, almost scathing, lots of alcohol in the taste. Plenty bitter and an everlasting aftertaste. Hop extreme.

Purchased from NW Growlers for $8. The pallet seems to skip. This is a little a little fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy bright golden with a thick, lasting white top. Aroma is a bit resinous with orange rind and a little pine and golden British malt. Crisp, bright and full body with lovely leafy/citrusy hops, a little tropical melon undertones, and a soft hoppy finish.

On bottle at Sandar Bryghus. Hazy golden color, good foam. Medium/ high aroma intensity; good hop intensity, citrus , good fruitiness. Medium/ full body & complexity. Good bitterness and balance. Very Enjoyable - not much of caramel & sweetness made it really great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CObiased (254) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Bomber - pours a clear golden yellow with great carbonation and a thicker soapy white head. Big funky aroma full of apricot, orange zest, grapefruit and a funky sauerkraut smell. Wonderful hop flavor for only 60 ibus - layers of citrus notes, bready malt and subtle tropical fruits.

heman (508) - Tychy, POLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Barwa złota, piwo lekko mętne. Piana ok. Aromat średnio-intensywny, mieszanka słodkich cytrusów i żywicy. Po ogrzaniu pokazują się aromaty suszonego tytoniu. W smaku zaskakująco lekkie, początkowa słodycz, przykrywana jest średnio-wysoką, grejpfrutową goryczką.

Bomber from CANBIF fall 2015 via fiery1. Hazy pale orange with a foamy white head. Fresh grapefruit and orange pulp, vibrant floral hop aroma, lively carbonation and moderate body, slightly bitter but incredibly balanced, smooth, fresh, delicious.
