650ml bottle. Strong tropical fruit and pine aroma. Pours with a cloudy golden colour and medium sized frothy off-white head. Sharp bitter flavour with lots of fruit notes. Medium body. Long bitter finish with some alcohol warming. Sammy (13144) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
Very nice. On tap at The Griffon Gastropub. Fruity. Very lacy. Very good drinkability. Well executed. Gerbeer (4217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2017
On tap. Pours a clear gold with little head. Aromas of jammy stoned fruit and toasted malts. Flavors of dried fruit, resin, grass and bread crust. Definite Mosiac. Nice enough but nothing distinctive. sulawang (1217) - - JUL 15, 2017
Visual: Pours virtually clear golden orange with a small 1mm head, half lacing, loose clusters of active streams.

Nose: passionfruit-tangerine brightness with a touch of grassy hop, very clean and inviting. (lvl-7)-pungency
Attack: thicker-crisp, slightly creamy, citrus malt impression
Mid-palate: (lvl-4-sweetness), alcohol hit-low detection, passionfruit, mild pineapple, big tangerine citrusy, fruity-toffee barley malt
Finish: mild grapefruit bitter, tangerine exhale, off-dry bready grain, subtle bitter
Summary: Super stealth 8.1% ABV happening here, meaning that the complexity and balance matches its moderately high alcohol content. I wished for the tropical fruitness in the mids to last longer but instead the sweet barley kicks in a bit early.
Clear golden color, medium white head. Grapefruit aroma. Taste is bitter citrus and pine. Nice.

Copper pour with smaller white head. Big floral nose with pine and citrus. Flavor is tropical fruit with touch of pine and biscuit. Very nice balanced IIPA. ABUSEDGOAT (2933) - California, USA - JUN 6, 2017
Clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, grapefruit. Medium bodied, moderate to low bitterness, quite drinkable. Nothing exciting. kathouse (1942) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUN 4, 2017
Pours a clear golden with a lasting white foam. Hops are more fruit, herbal, and pine than they are citrus. Flavors meld well without too much bitterness. uhclem (431) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2017
A very nice DIPA. Most impressive was the fact that the alcohol was very well hidden. This is my first from Breakside, and I am looking forward to sampling more of their product. AgentAle (1880) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2017
A big floral nose full of passionfruit, honey, citrus,lemongrass, and faint hints of pine needles greet my nose on pour.
The taste is light sweet malts invaded by an army of several hop varieties. Two of which I’m hearing are Mosaic and Elderado hops. These two relatively new hop varieties lend to the fresh citrus flavors met with a deep and slightly spicy earthiness.
As I have become pleasantly used to with Portland beers, this full bodied hop profile somehow manages to mellow out wonderfully with a very light liquor warmth. No mouth-puckering bitterness, you could drink a few of these without too much trouble.
