DESCRIPTION

 

A bowl of breakfast cereal in a pint. Sweet, fruity, and nostalgic

This clear and bright IPA is fruity to the max. Ripe tones of banana, grapefruit, melon, and mandarin all surround a luscious framework of oats, wheat, and lactose.  The bitterness is a balancing element more than a flavor and keeps the lactose from being cloying. Instead, you wind up with an impressively drinkable IPA that will remind you of your favorite sugar cereals from your childhood. Or adulthood. We don’t judge. 

Breaky Fast Time! We wanted to brew a breakfast style beer that wasn’t a breakfast stout.  We decided fruity and sweet was what we were looking for, but didn’t want to go over the top with the haze bomb that will leave you filled up to the gills all day.  We wanted to start our days with something clear, fresh, and fruity. 

While we make a lot of fun references to breakfast beer, Breaky is a beautiful pairing option as well when it comes to dinner.  Try out a sweet and spicy pineapple pork stir fry with fresh veggies. The pineapple tones will work out fantastic with the lush tropical notes from the hop profile, while your spicy elements will provide a particularly awesome counterpoint for the sweetness in the beer.  For cheeses, you’re gonna love this beer with a Beaufort Blue cheese or Cantal. This beer doesn’t even need a dessert pairing, it can just be dessert on its own but If you must, go for a tropical fruit tart. 

STYLE NOTES

AMERICAN IPA

The most popular American craft beer style. They range in ease of drinking (session) from easy to quite huge knock-you-out-of-your-chair flavor and alcohol. Hop flavor is medium to very high and should reflect an American or New World hop character, such as citrus, floral, pine, resinous, spicy, tropical fruit, stone fruit, berry, melon, etc. Medium-high to very high hop bitterness. Malt flavor should be low to medium-low and is generally clean and grainy-malty although some light caramel or toasty flavors are acceptable. Low yeast-derived fruitiness is acceptable but not required. Dry to medium-dry finish; residual sweetness should be low to none. The bitterness and hop flavor may linger into the aftertaste but should not be harsh. A very light, clean alcohol flavor may be noted in stronger versions. Maybe slightly sulfury, but most examples do not exhibit this character.
