22 oz bomber from "Lifesource" in Salem OR
This IPA does appear a lighter colour than normal..a deep golden..with what has to be the most attractive head i have seen in a proper IPA,..about an inch thick,tightly bubbled and quite uniform.
Very very intense hop aromas..as said in the intro..weird combination of bright citrus peel and normal PNW dankness..but it works.
Taste is similar to aroma but much more effervescent grapefruit ( pink) in the end.
Lovely mouth feel..intense yet at the same time light and quaffable ( yes i used That word).
Very good IPA ..loving this.
Papaya tropical hop aroma with some piney bitter hops backing. Base is a nice amount of malt balancing the hops but not sticky or sweet. Full flavored but easy drinking. Finishes bitter and dry. Solid IPA, nothing bad about it but also not blowing me away, just a good overall IPA.

From bomber in tulip glass. Great smell and color. I tend to try lots of different IPAs since I don’t drink them all the time, but this would be a very good go to IPA, not as bitter finish as some and full of fresh, juicy flavor (and smell). tricksta_p (4560) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle from The Beer Mongers, Portland. Aroma is mildly dank juicy fruity hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit, touch of pineapple and onions. Flavour is light sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium. Wonderfully juicy and a little dank, easy smooth lPA. jsnicholas (614) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Bottle (22oz). Golden with smallish white head. Aroma if fresh and citrus. Taste is tropical and bitter. Finish bitter too. Nice. robforbes (2238) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2017
Pours a clear straw with a very small white head and very good lacing.
Smell is of citrus, tropical fruits, hops, and some pine.
Taste is sharp, very bitter, citrus, and some caramel. Ends nicely bitter.

A good, but not incredible IPA. That said, still wish to possess a lifetime supply of this beer. Was hoping for a tad more intensity, but that might be found in an imperial IPA. On balance, anybody would be lucky to have a pint of this ale in their glass! crispaire (233) - - MAY 27, 2017
Danky! Very pronounced hop aromas. Juicy. Crisp. Delicious. One of Breakside's best offerings.

This is obviously a quality IPA. Tall rocky head which would not go away, highly carbonated. Aroma not hop forward, malts come through. More centrally bitter (small at the back of my tongue) than I like, but I cannot rate down because of that. BrewProfessor72 (4) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2017 does not count
Bottle , fresh sliced kiwi aroma, tropical scents . Butterscotch, dank & mushroomy. Slightly piney . With its reserverved sweetness this IPA makes my tastebuds revel in this truly masterful inebriant .Makes me want to travel to Portland and do a tour of brew pups .

Hazy gold with a white head. Full of grapefruit and some pine. Medium bodied. Light bitterness in the finish. Good.
