On tap at the brewery.Fairly clear brew with a golden to light orange colour. I find the aroma muted but it is citrusy and hoppy. On the palate it proves hoppy enough with a citrus taste and pine cone finish but overall this is made in a lighter style and is a bit of a let down.

355ml bottle from jsprime. Deep orange, off white head. Hop saturation. The aroma is hugely hoppy, it’s lovely. The flavour isn’t quite as good. There is something about amsterdams base malt that I find out putting but this is such a hop bomb that it’s only minimally annoying. Really good stuff.

355 mL bottle from the brewery store, cold in a tulip glass. Hazy deep amber with a thin yellow tan head. Really dank, oily citrus, rich caramel, some booze, tropical fruits, stone fruits, sweet, quite hoppy. Medium+ with moderate effervescence. Big orange peel, tropical fruits, apricot, a bit peppery, resinous, lots of sweet, thick caramel, very rich in all aspects, a little booze; sweet with decent bitterness and a long, sticky caramel, and very fruity hop finish.

355ml bottle from the Brewpub brewed on Mar. 26, 2013. Pours a clear copper/caramel with an off-white, half finger head. Aroma is slightly pungent and herbal/floral with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, and resiny pine. Taste is a big bitter with a huge amount of resin and citrus throughout. Slight alcohol mixed in as well. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Huge resiny texture in the mouth but still drinkable thanks to just the right amount of carbonation.Overall this is a solid brew. Huge aroma and taste. A touch to resiny for it to be my favorite but still very nice. Cheers.

Merci à Boutip pour la bouteille!
Je ne suis pas très chanceux avec mes bouteilles aujourd’hui, semble t-il! La Fracture que je goûte présentement est belle visuellement, mais là s’arrête les compliments que je peux lui faire. Au goût c’est prèsque difficile à supporter! J’espère que c’est une mauvaise bouteille sur laquelle je suis tombée car je n’arrive pas à comprendre que cette bière obtienne une note de 95 ici, sur ratebeer.

On tap at the brewpub. dark amber pour, small off white head. Aroma of pine, and some solid citrus. The malts are upfront, and quite chewy. This is basically a double boneshaker, with a huge malt bill. The finish is sweet, and chewy.

Boutip (4968) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of citrusy hops with light floral notes and some sweet malt y notes. Taste is also dominated by some floral citrusy hops notes with a medium sweet malt backbone. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Enjoyable but nothing to really write home about.

Tap at the ship, pours kind murky brown, aroma was piney and flavour was strong in the way of pine but it was really nice for the style and i really quite enjoyed this one

Moderate citrusy hops, light leafy touches. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly fruity citrus, lightly alcoholic, sweetish orange infused malt core, moderate bitterness throughout. Very smooth medium to full bodied palate, soft carbonation. Very nice, dangerously drinkable. On tap at Bryden’s, Toronto
