Breakside Releases Rainbows & Unicorns

Breakside Brewery announces the launch of Rainbows & Unicorns – the second in a series of four rotating IPAs in 2018. This session beer was originally created for the 2015 Oregon Brewers Fest and showcases two favorite hop varietals: Galaxy and Eldorado.

Galaxy provides juicy notes that are reminiscent of peach and apricot, while Eldorado screams pineapple and lime zest. Breakside backs these up with a healthy dose of Comet hops, a heritage hop varietal, overlooked for many years and now gaining popularity again due to its intense stone fruit and citrus character. Also included in the summery brew are Two Row, Maris Otter, Flaked Rice and Light Crystal malts. Rainbows & Unicorns has an ABV of 5.1% and 32 IBUs.

“Rainbows & Unicorns toes the line between ‘juicier’ and ‘sweeter’ style of IPA and the more classic West Coast hoppy pales,” said Ben Edmunds, Brewmaster of Breakside Brewery. “Our team loves it for its clean, pure hop flavors. This one would be great at a backyard barbeque, paired with grilled octopus, smoked spare ribs or any spicy summer favorite.”

Breakside brews this beer in small batches and it will be released in limited quantities from April through mid-July of this year, staying ultra-fresh until it quickly disappears. Look for it on draft and in 22 oz bottles.
