hangunder (215) - Ontario, - MAY 10, 2013
Mainly pine, a bit of citrus, onion, sweet malt and a bit of alcohol on the nose. Not mind blowing but seems well balanced. Clear, dark copper color, quickly fading head. Taste is fairly soft, the quoted IBUs arenít really coming through here. Medium bodied and low/medium carbonation. Sweet malt upfront, pine in the middle and a bit of alcohol and hop bitterness in the finish. Hop profile is quite different from the Boneshaker. A decent DIPA.

Dark amber pour with a couple fingers of head. good lacing. Pine and fruit in the aroma. Hops come through better when drinking this, big pine, grapefruit, mango, citrus peels, resin. medium body.

Beerenberger (1373) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Thanks to Sammy- The clean aroma of tropical fruit and citrus accompanied by hints of pine waft up from a clear dark amber pour with thin non-lasting off-white head. The palate is decidedly hoppy. Pine with hints of tropical fruit terminating in a rewarding bitter resin finish. Overall, although it may be from Canada, it sure helpedcompensate for the heat on a very hot Texas evening.

DerWeg (1485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Intense gold pour and solid body with frothy lacy small cap. Very piney and juicy in the expected aroma and taste, with a definite build of hop dryness on the palate. Some creamy oak impressions. Cat pee cannabis. A bit sharp for the hopheads without going ridiculous, good.

berkshirejohn (4394) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at the Amsterdam Brewhouse, on the Toronto waterfront. Golden amber with a tight cream head; sweet fruity aroma; syrupy texture with a pleasnt grainy body and a herbal bitterness; the finish is long and saitsfying with some warmth.

jksipa (285) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a mostly clear deep copper with a two finger off white head that laces well. Nose is candied fruit with grass and pine. Nice sweet malt base with apricot and grapefruit for a good level of bitterness. Mouth is medium slick with a long bitter finish. Nice but I think I still prefer the regular Boneshaker.

Bendrixian (1068) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
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.

matt7215 (2155) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2013
355ml bottle from jsprime. Deep orange, off white head. Hop saturation. The aroma is hugely hoppy, itís lovely. The flavour isnít quite as good. There is something about amsterdams base malt that I find out putting but this is such a hop bomb that itís only minimally annoying. Really good stuff.

probstblueribbon (2864) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
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.
