3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this tonight at the 10 Barrel Boise IPA Beer Wars and it was certainly in my top 3 of the 16 IPA’s on tap tonight.
Orange brew with a nice hop haze... great head and lacing.
Tropical fruity hoppiness punctuated by a big grapefruit zest essence... very balanced light pale malt presence.
Very drinkable with a light body and good carbonation... seems pretty damn fresh.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. 15cl sample. Thanks Noize. The aroma is a nice mixture of tropical fruits and unions with some toffee malts. Clear, amber coloured beer with a lasting, medium, off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter, has the tropical hop fruit explosion from the aroma together with some pine and caramel malts. Medium dry. Goes down easy even for the relative high abv.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Whole Foods. Hazy orange gold with lasting head and a little lace. Orange grapefruit aroma with a touch of honey. Bready orangy toffee malt sweetness with some cereal graininess and medium bitter finish with citrus and lingering pine. Medium body lively fine carbo accentuates hops. Definitely a classic rendition of a classic style. Just what it should be. Nothing outrageous but nailed the balance and flavors of the classic American IPA.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear deep golden hue with a large fluffy ivory head. Giant juicy nose that’s beautifully full of orange rind, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, and sweet melon tones. Smooth and delightful flavor that’s somewhere between crisp and fluffy, but also citrusy bitter but balanced by lots of pale malty smoothness. Somewhat grapefruity and grassy and slightly tropical on the flavor, just a little sweet and just the right amount of American bitterness for IPA status.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle from Craft Beer Cabin, thanks Guillaume for buying. Aroma: intense grapefruits, citrus and some delicate notes of pines. App: cloudy copper, medium frothy off white head. Taste and palate: medium body, kinda fluffy mouthfeel, fruity, moderate bitter finish. Overall: I like it. A typical IPA like I used to really enjoy. These days I much prefer NE type of IPAs (juicy and not mut bitter) but this really good. Reminds me of Le Castor Yakima but more fluffy/creamy. I still enjoy this style of IPAs, just a tad less than NE IPAs, basically those that come from MA. Anyway, another good beer from Breakside.

(En fût à la source et partout à travers Portland): Chlorophylle, tangerines, minéraux, corps svelte et collant, à la Russian River, mais également très juteux. Superbe et une des plus solide IPA disponible localement.
