   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
MrManning (2009) - 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.

kathouse (1015) - Nevada, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Another great trade from cards04. Cloudy brown with tints of orange and red. Foam is thick and persistent. Aroma is earthy and slightly herbal. Good malt grain lends for a moderate mouthfeel. Bitterness overwhelms the malts and tastes a little "old". Long bitter finish leaves an herbal aftertaste. So-so.

berkshirejohn (4534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at the Amsterdam Brewhouse, on the Toronto waterfront. Now at 7.2% ABV and 85 IBU. Golden amber with a tight cream head; piney aroma; taste of pine and citrus with a biscuity base and a soft and moreish finish. A well balanced and rather muted IPA.

btg95 (19) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a translucent copper colour with a thick, dense head. Strong notes of citrus hops and pine. Medium body, with strong astringent finish. Since its unfiltered, very active particle sedimentation in glass

Sizzler80 (459) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 29, 2014
Courtesy of Garthicus. Rusty pour with a vibrant white head. Wonderful IPA aromas. Lots of pine, grapefruit, cat pee, coriander, caramel, tangerine, some bread. Slightly dry and beautifully hoppy on the palate. A fantastic IPA.

lesifflebiere (1271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Opaque, trouble, orange brûlé, mousse abondante couleur crème, cette India Pale Ale est bien odorante en nez (houblons américains résultant en effluves fruitées d’agrumes). Les malts sont plus présents en bouche, donnant des notes d’abricots et de boisé à un mélange somme toute assez aqueux, mais bien équilibré et bien amer, surtout en finale. Un bon exemple du genre, accessible et attirant, mais qui présente de petits moments discordants.

BiereLuc (899) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bière orangée, voilée avec un col de mousse modéré et durable. C’est beau. Le nez laisse passer des notes houblonnées fruitées et pointues. En bouche, le fruité s’exprime sous la forme d’un punch d’agrumes (le sucré d’une orange, l’amertume d’un pamplemousse) sur une trame de caramel doux. Le liquide est mince, mais l’amertume donne un corps qui s’étale jusqu’à un arrière-goût à durée moyenne. Belle découverte!
