Bu le 17 juillet 2014 en fût au Pub Italia à Ottawa. Œil: ambrée-rousse, peu de mousse et légère dentelle qui persiste. Arôme: herbacé et résineux et légèrement perceptible arôme de caramel. Goût: belle amertume, houblonné et lors de la première gorgée, amertume intense et arrière-goût intense mais pour les gorgées suivante cela est moyen. Note: 4/5 à découvrir!

Damn tasty, it could be the new hardcore session beer for me if I had regular access to ’er. A touch of cloudiness on this rusty copper pour and an aroma of caramel paired with a juicy citrus, pine and floral hop barrage. It has a tropical leaning, but the palm trees are leaning and intertwined with pine trees and have glorious flowers a-planted neath them. The body is curvaceously sexy but not rotund and she has some pep in her step but won’t get the jump on you either.

Pours a murky golden orange color. Aromas of citrus hops, caramel malts. Flavor is bitter and hoppy with a touch of pepper/grapefruit with sweet malt.

Atheist_Peace (928) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Rusted orange pour with an average eggshell head that’s a little short but lasts. Caramel, evergreen and grapefruit on the nose. The caramel really dominates the nose is a pleasant but un-IPA sort of way, leading me to believe this can may be a little aged. There’s still enough pine and grapefruit to tickle the taste buds. Finishes with a solid bitterness. Decent stuff but not mind blowing.

Niall73 (1392) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Can from LCBO. Pours a dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is rye bread, caramel, toast. Medium body, medium carbonation. There’s caramel, but not too sweet, rye bread, lemon, pine, wood, grapefruit... Solid bitterness which offsets the sweetness. Well balanced and tasty.

Hidden_Pooch (276) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Poured a hazy orange copper. Aroma was of pine, floral, citrus, and caramel. Tasted of big juicy pine and tropical fruits also had a good caramel malt balance to it. I found the body pretty heavy with low carbonation and a real tongue coater to let you know what you are drinking. I was really impressed with this Amsterdam offering. Definitely could become a regular choice.

Tappee at the Amsterdam Brewhouse. Served in a tulip glass. Amber, golden, brown color with some orange color. Stable white head, bit beige. Aroma of malt in the back, fresh hops plus a lot of floral aroma. Taste is innitial malt that turns quickly into bitter floral hops. Exotic fruits, grapefruit, citrus. Overall a fantastic ipa!

Pours a deep amber colour, clear, with a frothy off white head. Aroma is of pine and grapefruit with a slight caramel malt undertone. Taste is a little sweet up front but is quickly overtaken but an intensifying bitterness. Smooth mouth feel, lively carbonation, and medium body. A nice IPA overall.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
I like Boneshaker and drink it fairly often. In Can or on draught, I enjoy it the same. Its dark burnt orange or old gold body always has a billowing and actiuve white foam and always leaves a tonne of lace. Intensely hopped, the nose immediately tells of pine, resin, and citrus, with a hint of caramel. Very bitter with a balancing malt sweetness. Pithy,long bitter finish. World class IPA in my opinion.

Pours dark burnt orange with a white head leaving medium amounts of lacing behind. On the nose, while there is definitely some citrus hops, especially from the tallboy can, there is a surprising amount of malt wafting up from the glass. Taste wise, this is very balanced. Some light citrus coming through in the hops, but caramel malts and the taste of tea on the finish for sure. This is a very nicely balanced IPA, although real hop heads might be looking for that balance to be a bit more skewed in that direction.
