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!

Can shared in CW - cheers Tipple! Pours unclear yellow-gold with a light, creamy white head. The nose holds melon and passion fruit. Light to medium sweet flavour, with more nice passion fruit notes, moderate rindy bitterness, tangerine, melon. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with light boozy warmth, more rind, some pine. Nice.

Growler pours a hazy gold with a short white head and good lacing. Aroma is citrus and flowery. Taste is good, familiar flavors, some tropical yet not too sweet, pretty well balanced overall. Bitterness is fairly mild.

A deliciously malty DIPA. Fresh and zesty grapefruit and orange hops blended perfectly with soft, sweet malt. Extremely clean and refreshing finish. Every bit as good as Pliny The Elder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at L42 - thanks to Adrian. It pours clear yellow - gold with a medium foamy white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, oily, lemonade, limeade, candy, icing sugar and bread. The taste is soft, bitter - sweet, oily, lemonade, limey, tangerine, citrus peel, soapy, green and grass with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent enough stuff.

LesArgen (376) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2017
It's not bad, but doesn't really live up to the awesome label. It does have a very nice aroma, with pine, pineapple and spearmint really prominent. The pineapple combines with a little apple and a little biscuit and honey. My main criticism is that it is a little thin in the palate, but on the other hand it does hide its alcohol well while leaving a warm afterglow in the throat.

Clear gold pour with a decent white head. Grapefruit, pine, passionfruit, resiny aromas. Taste is similar, big grapefruit, tropical flavours, nice malt underneath, long bitter finish

16oz can from Slowbeer. Canned 27.06.17 Presented with an orange gold body, holds a dense white head. Big punchy all American west coast sort of hop nose - all your favourite classic hits of pine, grapefruit, melons, stonefruits, touch of passionfruit with a sort of toasty caramel malt in the works. Body is full yet I was sort of expecting more (aroma tricked me into thinking it was an IIPA maybe!?), still good, persistent, slick, sort of dry. Reasonably brutal & resiny on the body - pine sap & needle, passionfruit pith, grapefruit pith, peach uhhh stone, malt body probably lags behind a bit now. Fairly aggressively powerful bitterness, lingering spice, sort of metallic note. Very nice, only complaint would be I wanted (or expected) more body, other than that, hells yeah!
