4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster, from the King & Portland flight at the brewery in Toronto. Cloudy gold-copper with a firm white head, aromas of tropical fruits, with a delicious fruits and pine taste and a tremendous bitterness that never gets nasty, but only classy. The mouthfeel is just as resinous as one would expect for a beer of this calibre. Great beer for a great place.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (355 ml). Extra from Andy, thanks! Clear golden/amber with a medium off-white and good lacing. Aroma is malt, tropical fruits, caramel and floral notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with caramel, tropical fruits, floral notes and light alcohol. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel and dry finish. Decent IPA. Quite drinkable at first, but it then become a bit harsh/heavy on alcohol after a couple of sip. Too much malt/caramel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Beer Revolution. 7.1% Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, super pink grapefruit, tangerine, Taste is more of the same, dry hops and cakey malts dominating the flavour, with a dose of pink grapefruit sweetness sure to last. Fantastic IPA out of TO

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fantastic ipa. Iíd never heard of it before and ordered it. Great looking bottle, poured surprisingly dark with hints of red. Continuously hopped apparently, wasnít sure how it might stack up to 60/90 minute, but had its own distinct and smooth hoppiness. Would buy this all the time if it was available in Edmonton year round.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some light malts. Taste is a light grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation which pleases the palate. A solid IPA that is worth a try.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pouring out a bright golden orange with a big bounty of white head Boneshaker has the generally IPA esque appearance despite a lack of haze or cloudiness. The nose has a big dose of pine and gooey resinous citrus aromas. A mild malty nose with hints of caramel and toasted breads the aroma is hop dominated. The first sip has full on resinous hop sweetness with grapefruit and zesty flavours. Toasted malts and bready notes blend well and help balance the flavour out but are lost quickly with big hops. The finish isnít all that bitter for me but lingers quite well with a sharp and tangy grapefruit along with a moderate smack of resinous hops. A good beer overall if I can say so.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours orange with a thick off white head. Aroma of bitter hops, maybe a little spicy. Flavour of very subtle caramel malts and harsh bitter hops. Medium body with a just barely sticky feeling. Finish over powered by bitterness that rests in the back of the throat.
