Brew Info:
  • Brewery: Breakside Brewery (Portland, Oregon)
  • Website:
  • Brew: Wanderlust India Pale Ale
  • Style: American India Pale Ale (IPA)
  • Serving: 22 ounce bottle
  • ABV: 6.6%
  • IBUs: 63
  • Pour: The Wanderlust pours a golden peach amber with a frothy, bright white, 2-finger head that displays intricate spider web lacing with great sustain.
  • Nose: Dank, tropical, and citrusy, the nose of the Wanderlust is characterized by aromas of orange, tangerine, mango, melon, grapefruit rind, pine resin, and a lighter malt backbone.
  • Taste: With lots of Citra hops (along with 4 other varieties), the Wanderlust's flavor is chalk full of big citrus, tropical fruit, and earthy pine notes.  There's loads of mango, melon, pineapple, juicy pink grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, biscuit, soft caramel/toffee, and cereal grains.
  • Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with solid carbonation, the mouthfeel is very smooth and refreshing, but also oily with a clean, dry, and citrusy finish.
Overall pairing: The very drinkable, but punchy hop flavors of the Wanderlust India Pale Ale from Breakside Brewery is a great beer for the rock and roll attitude that permeates throughout the tracks on "Four On The Floor", an album by actress Juliette Lewis' pet project Juliette And The Licks!   Those tropical and citrus flavors really pop when coupled with Lewis' aggressive vocals, Walters' and Womack's crunchy guitars, and Grohl's monster drumming!
