COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old school meets new school in this fresh approach to the classic IPA. At 50 IBU’s and 6.7% ABV, Breaking Bud features the restrained bitterness and alcohol of a classic IPA with newer tropical fruit hop flavors and aromas of Mosaic. Also in the hop mix are Simcoe and CTZ, creating layers of mango, passion fruit, pine and dank. A malt bill with a pinch of crystal malt and a hefty dose of flaked wheat keeps the beer crisp while adding flavor complexity. Cheers to the past, present and future!

Bottle, 134 Bar, Nuneaton, 04/02/17. Brilliant snow-capped gold. Aroma of orange, mint, fennel suggestions. Soapy orange shower gel hops with shreds of pine. Good.

Draft. Rich aroma of orange and toffee. Spectacularly clear, beautiful beer. Flavors are toffee and some dank-ish OJ, with some walnuts on the finish. Too complex to crush.

Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Tips for the can. Light haze on this gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Touch of creamy sweetness from the thin malts. Piney hop and light fresh orange. Light finish. Good stuff but had much better hop juice from this brewery.

willisread (3944) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2017
Can from Wine Tree East. Pours a clear deep gold with a finger of foam that lingers then dissipates. Piney, citrus forward nose. Grapefruit abound. Bitter on the palate. Great clean and crisp West Coast IPA. Lingering citrus pith bitterness. I like it.

The_Osprey (9912) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2017
October 2017 - Can shared at One Canada Square. Huge thanks! As 'Knee Deep Breaking Bud', 6.5%. For posterity, a reference to Breaking Bad. Golden orange, still and clear, foamy off-white head. Aroma is boiled sweets, quite light. Body is light and frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is sodawater, a little floral, chalky, stones, very clean and crisp. Decent enough. (6-4-7-3-14=3.4)

Pours a slightly hazy light gold with a white head. Nose is delightful - citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is really strong on the grapefruit, with subtle hops on the finish that lingers for quite a while. This is a really solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska direkt från USA, tack Barrett! Klar, ljusorange med vitt skum. Doft och smak av citrus, ananas, tallbarr, kåda, grape, granskott. Stor beska som hänger i länge. Klassisk amerikansk IPA. Gott!

Emelie (258) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2017
Doft: tall, ananas, caramel, vanilj. Smak: lätt fruktig först sen en del beska, mycket tall i beskan.

RobertDale (7050) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - DEC 15, 2017
16 ounce can. Pours a mostly clear golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical, and pine. Taste is orange, mango, melons, lemon, pine, and malt. Nice.

3.6
Ron (4292) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2017
Can. Clear orange color and lots of sticky lace. Herbal notes of pine and hop. Sharp hop hit at first but it is pretty mellow and tree like more than bitter. Almost sessionable if the alcohol didn’t hit as hard. Grapefruit and melon wraps it up. Solid IPA
