In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Breakside Brewery India Golden Ale

Aroma: “Bright hops flavors with a healthy amount of mango, Thai basil, pine, grapefruit, and even a light anise character. I have a strong desire for curry after smelling this beer.”

Flavor: “Amazing unique and intense hops flavors that continue to display the Thai basil flavors from the aroma, coupled with a more pronounced fruity character of mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. A nice, light malt sweetness pairs perfectly with a prominent bitterness that adds to the herbal spice character. Dangerously dry.”

Overall: “Simultaneously one of the most unique and tasty big IPAs I’ve enjoyed in a long time. The unique hops profile coupled with a delicious base beer is wonderful.”
