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.

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.

Gription79 (2228) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Huge grapefruit and tangerine aroma. The flavor is again filled with grapefruit and tangerine hop notes, there is some pine character as well. The bitterness is soft and pleasant, the malt notes are bready/cracker. This is a fantastic IPA.

2014-02-27, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Hazy light amber color with creamy head. The malt base is good, with toffee accents; the hopping is good as well with tropical fruits, mango, and light animal component; this last one limits a bit the drinkability.
Good and fresh.

2014-01-10, bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver, 8-5-7-5-16=41
Amber color, clean, with medium sized compact head. Aroma is strong, a lot of hop character, very animal, some cat piss. Caramel flavor with a lean mouthfeel; quite dry; strong animal character, cat piss, hop resins, bitter oranges (in the order). Long final.
Excellent and aggressive IPA.

RumRunner101 (733) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
Slightly hazy golden pour. Aroma is ripe with oranges, mango, grapefruit. Full bodied, with lots of juicy fruits and a great bitter grapefruit finish to cut any sweetness. Great IPA.

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.
