- Aggressive? Hoppy? You may think you know your American Pale Ales, but Breakwater stands out from the field. The combination of Chinook and Citra builds a rolling tide of tangerine and lemon-citrus flavors across your tongue, while the grain bill adds a slightly bready but subtle base. The hops sail right through the finish, leaving a dry character that lingers until your next sip, which usually doesn’t take too long. Very drinkable and very unique; a bit like our popular Chinook IPA taken to a whole new level. Dry Dock Brewing Company of Aurora CO is one of the hottest up and coming breweries in the US. In the 6 years that it has been open, it has racked up more than a dozen World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival medals, including Small Brewing Company of the Year. But to try one of their amazing brews you’d have to live in the tiny section of Colorado they cater to. Good thing for the rest of us Dry Dock has worked closely with Northern Brewer to develop these Pro-Series beer kits. We’ve sourced the same ingredients and kept all the recipe particulars the same, just scaled down to your homebrewery. Enjoy!

4 weeks agoSuper SmoothA little hoppier than I was expecting but super smooth taste with a light golden body and a pleasure to come home and crack open after a long day.
This was my first brew which required dry hopping. My mistake was not bagging the hops when I dry hopped. A lot stayed floating on top with some suspended in the middle. Siphoning was a nightmare, although I did think to tie a fine mesh bag to the end of the siphon hose leading to the bottling bucket. That really caught a lot and saved me. Next time I'll be sure to use a hop bag for dry hopping.July 7, 2017Purchased
1 year agoJuly 4, 2016Friends all love itI'll definitely be brewing this one againFebruary 28, 2016Will NOT last in the kegerator!One of the best Pale Ales I have ever brewed... citrus, crisp and clear...January 29, 2016Delicious Extract KitI've brewed this one 3 or 4 times and it is quite tasty. Citrus up front with a dry finish.January 28, 2016Good ChoiceIt was a hit the last time I made it.November 20, 2015Great tasting pale ale- perfect for any season.excellent kit, came out nice and clean; I would add this to my rotation any time of year. I modified it slightly by adding an ounce of citra at flameout, and then some additional dry hopping, because I wanted to get a bit more aroma going since all my beers are on draft. Easy to brew, even easier to drinkNovember 9, 2015A regular in the rotationThis is an excellent Pale Ale recipe that I have brewed several times over the last year. Its a regular in my brew schedule (5 gal batch a week) I always look forward to Breakwater on deck and it never lasts long once tapped. In fact Im brewing it again this weekend.October 10, 2015Hoppier than anticipatedThe aromas there, the golden color is there but I'm missing the citrusI flavor that i was expecting. It's more bitter than expected after two weeks in the bottle. I hope that the hops mellow a bit to make this beer a little easier to drink. If I did this kit again I'd probably only dry hop for a couple days before racking and bottling but I'm not sure I'd do this kit again. It's hard to repeat a kit when there are so many more better ones out there.September 4, 2015Response from Northern BrewerThanks for the review! Some time in the bottle may help the bitterness to subside so don;t give up hope yet! Let us know if we can help
the beer kit guarantee is there for a reason. Cheers!November 21, 2016Northern Brewer
- Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 3 answersWhat it the APV % of this brew?BEST ANSWER: I do'nt take readings on my beers any more so I can't give you a definite Abv. I can tell you at 200 lbs 5'10 male with an empty stomach and Two pints of Breakwater in me I'm starting to feel pretty happy. If I had to guess I'd say a high 5%, close to 6. That's on a full two weeks in the keg with priming sugar after a two week primary and two week secondary, so six weeks total. Taste great. One of my staples, always a keg in the keezer or two kegs waiting their turn.
