COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic India Pale ale style - the favorite craft beer of the Northwest. This amber colored brew is loaded with four different types of hops during the brew day and then gets dry hopped. Our IPA has a huge citrus and pine character with a strong, but refined bitterness.

On draught at breakside - pours out clear golden. Definite nose of hop. Taste also of hop - to me tastes like a double ipa. Perfect pairing with spicy food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - Mango and grapefruit, very fruity. Clear gold nice head. Fruit translates well into taste but very thin and bitterness sems unbalanced.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2012
On tap at the brewpub in Portland, OR. Pours a cloudy, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grassy and floral grapefruits with touches of pine resin and a grainy malt backing. Flavor is similar. Grapefruit citruses with a good amount of grass and florals up front. Grainy malt backing with a few pine resins before this finishes dry, somewhat spicy, and moderately bitter before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Well hopped and bitter with a nice grainy malt backing. Good one.

mcberko (5362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
On tap at Breakside Brewing, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma of bitter resinous hops, pine, and creamy buttery malts. Flavour of bitter piney and resinous hops, and super-creamy buttery malts. Full-bodied, super piney and with such a creamy mouthfeel. Pleasantly surprised by this – excellent stuff.
