Mic Drop IIPA

Breakside Brewery (Portland, OR)
"Bright golden in color, aggressive in hop flavor, and higher in alcohol than most "single" IPAs. Hop-wise this beer stays true to the San Diego-style and leans heavily on Simcoe and Amarillo to drive the flavor. They provide notes of grapefruit, candied orange, and strong pine."

Lots of "hoppiness" and alcohol here ... kinda what you expect from an Imperial IPA. Pine and plentiful citrus flavors. Crisp and sharp on the tongue with a sharp citrus finish. Enjoyable.

8.4 ABV, 75 IBU
