hangunder (305) - 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 aren’t 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.

SlovakSniper (4702) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2016
La Double typique qui peut facilement jouer le rôle d’un vin d’orge américain. Gros corps caramélisé avec des houblons qui vont dans tous les sens. Bon sucre résiduel en fin de bouche. Texture sirupeuse qui affecte la buvabilité. Une DIPA de la vieille école.

flatmatt (1395) - Northville, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2016
12 oz bottle, undated. Pours a hazy orange amber with an off-white head. Grapefruit aroma, tropical, grassy hops, some caramelly malt. Grassy hops, biscuit flavor. Seems like an older bottle, unfortunately. Still drinkable.

ChadPoole (136) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Hoppy pine aroma. Pours copper with a light foam head. Light bitter,citrus and pine taste that goes down great. A 9% beer that doesn’t come off too strong

Canmoore (387) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016
Pours a clear copper, with a nice foamy head. Aroma is of grassy hops, pine, citrus, and some biscuit. Tasting notes include pine resin, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and a malty/bitter finish. Decent IIPA.

QcBeer (94) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
Corps orangé avec une belle tête blanche mousseuse. Au nez, agrume, agrume et agrume. En bouche, section tranchante de houblon mais véritablement non agressante pour le palais! Zeste de citrons, note d’orange et d’agrume! Bonne amertume très intense mais non violente!

Elwood_B (4) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016 does not count
Bought a 6 pack of Fracture with high hopes. Disappointing. All alcohol with little substance. Compared to other imperial IPAs, this one just does not deliver.

KoNrRiI (1038) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2015
0.355 bottle. Clear, dark gold color and a small, off-white head leaving no lacing. Aroma of pines, exotic fruits, grass, and some sharp tones of resin. Taste is hoppy, relatively sweet, fruity, minty, but also delicately malty somewhere in the background. Medium to full body, a slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is long but its bitterness does not linger and prevent full enjoyment of the beer. Overall quite a decent brew, certainly another point scored by the Amsterdam Brewery.

Gluepot (358) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2015
Copper and gold body with a thick fluffy white head. A dank, grassy hop nose. Hops lead the taste profile with elements of grass, resin, and to a lesser extent, ripe tropical fruit. Understated sweet malts with a hint of spice underpin the hops. The malt blossoms slightly after 4 or 5 seconds creating a solid end balance. Strong hops with a nice clean, balanced finish. Excellent beer.

Nice. Smooth given the alc/vol. Enjoyable. Good hoppy finish and nice length.

cfrancis (2984) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015
Pours a clear deep amber with a small off white top. Aroma is rich toffee malts with a sharp pine bitterness. Taste is a bold pine bitterness with toffee and cereal malts.
