Breakside IPA, Breakside Brewery (Portland, Oregon)
Breakside IPA, – 11/17/16 by James Fedewa
An impressive citrus IPA. Very good citrus hoppy aroma with a thin small bubble head. Nice acute bitter front-end citrus hoppiness, but instantly smoothed with a velvet malty middle. The hoppy aftertastes is not that strong, but it is there and it lingers quite long (in a good way). The carbonation level is perfect and enhances the citrus hops and malty mid flavor. The smell of this beer is outstanding and smelling this beer is just as great as drinking this beer.
Classic Citrus Hoppy IPA that doesn’t have much uniqueness. However, this is the type of IPA that most people prefer. Grade: A-
