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

I really love this double IPA. It has a heavy floral aroma but just the right amount in the flavor. Flowers, citrus and herbs exude from start to finish. Malt flavors are rich and they provide the perfect backbone (not too much to obscure the hops, though). Overall, it’s a clean, aromatic and perfectly bittered impy IPA.

Very drinkable and nice on the palate. But be wary of the high alcohol content. It can hit pretty hard!

Large frothy white head atop a slightly cloud, highly carbonated golden body. Nose of orange peel, mildly resiny. Very sweet, some pine resin with a full citrus finish. Nice flavour balance with a subdued alcohol.
