COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Broken Halo IPA is a beer produced in the spirit of traditional IPA products shipped from the UK to India in the late 1800s. The almost excessive amounts of Cascade and Columbus hops used in Broken Halo give it notable citrus and grapefruit aromas and flavors. The beer bitterness measures high but tastes smooth due to the full-bodied, Caramel malt sweetness. The finish is juicy, clean, and short lived. A devilishly bold, heavenly smooth India Pale Ale. malts: PALE, CARAMEL 10L & 20L,carapils hops: ALCHEMY, CASCADE, zeus

This is a pretty decent IPA. Lots of citrus and grapefruit, but it is remarkably balanced and sessionable.

Bärnstensfärgad med mellanstort ljust skum! Mycket malt o inte speciellt mycket humle. Helt ok!

Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
This is not a very hoppy IPA for a British styled IPA. It’s a hazy golden beer with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak and citrusy, not a lot maltiness. The flavour is weakly grapefruity, but not as strong as traditional British IPAs

Orange copper, foamy, lasting off white head. Citrus, orange, zest. Flavour is orange sweetness followed by grapefruit bitterness. Medium bodied, slightly fizzy carbonation. Nicely balanced finish.very pleasant.

Not a bad IPA. Full, citrus-y flavor with a sweet aroma. Aftertaste is quite pleasant.

reebtogi (4242) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2012
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles down to some spotted lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and cereal grains with hints of caramel. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness which is not too overwhelming with a nice caramel malty sweet backbone. Light to medium body with decent carbonation leaving a nice tickle on the tongue with a nice clean finish. This is a nicely done IPA, but there are better ones available.

Bottled sample from happy Harry's. Another great beer from Widmer. Lots of hops. Great floral smell. Loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
