22 oz bomber from whole foods portland transported back to pa. i agree with the description on the bottle: smooth bold and full of flavor. no sell by date, but extremely fresh tasting with floral grassy citrus - these northwestern IPAs just continually have IPAs from the east coast on the mat. great job. wish i had a case of these....i cannot understand why this beer is not rated higher. this is en excellent brew.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice thick IPA hops aroma. Big hops flavor mixed with a good malt build. Banana and grapefruit flavors this was a terrific beer. Strong hops flavors and aromas this was exquisite

Bomber for under 4$. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A fresh fruity nose: caramel, big resinous hops. The flavor is excellent: citrus, medium bitterness, resin, big resinous burst, caramel, toasted malt. Damn nice. Lingering resin and bitterness. Tastes much bigger than 6%. Great beer. My first from Breakside.

Smells slightly skunky in a good way, has hints of grass and citrus undertones. Has a beautiful golden color with a slightly tan head. Light sweetness, lightly bitter, light to medium body with moderately lively carbonation. Has a slightly astringent maybe lightly bitter finish. Overall a pretty enjoyable beer. Flavorful but not too bitter or sweet and beautiful to look at.

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.

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.

22oz bottle from "Trader Joe" in Salem OR.
This IPA is a deeper amber colour..unusual for style and a small yet lasting thick and creamy white head.
very strong and fresh hop aromas...resin and pine take the fore..some malts in the backing.
Taste is mainly resiny hops mixed with caramel hops with a finishing stroke of grapefruit hop..tastes very fresh but i doubt that it is!
Good refreshing well carbonated mouthfeel.
Very nice drinkable IPA
