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

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2009 Very surprised this one rates so low. Iím usually disappointed when I go out on a limb and try somethig new, but not this time. Very nice balanced IPA (I usually drink Stone exclusively) with a very nice grassy, hoppy kick and not too much malt. This oneís a pleasant surprise, and one Iím going sample regularly from here on due to the moderate 6% ABV and reasonable price - $7.99/6 vs. $9.99/6 for Stone. Iíve since re-rated this one. The only kick I have against this one at all is that itís a little weak in the knees at 6.0% for an IPA. For all other factors, I think this might be the best Iíve tried so far. This is a FANTASTIC beer, and is ESPECIALLY well balanced for an IPA!

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

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

This is not a very hoppy IPA for a British styled IPA. Itís 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 (4513) - 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
