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 (1314) - rhus, 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 (528) - 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 (3251) - 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.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2015
Sampler after the marathon. 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.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
355 ml bottle from a friend.

Appearance: Pours a deep dark copper colour with a finger of head and minimal lacing.

Aroma: Caramel malt, bit of pine.

Flavours: Caramel malt, some hops, oranges, mango.

Mouthfeel: Average viscosity and carbonation.

Overall: This one is a different and very good IPA. It leans towards the malt side of things but still has some hops coming through. Although it is 105 IBUs, it didnt seem that bitter to me.

lesifflebiere (1747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
Lgre mousse couleur rable, sur une bire cuivre laspect mi-mince ; les armes olfactifs sont de pches confites, de jus dabricot acidul et de sirop. En bouche, les malts soutiennent habilement les houblons, moins amers que puissants, un pais tapis sucr qui met la plante verte sur un pidestal. Pas une bombe de houblon, mais un rel dlice, cest tout son honneur.

CurbDog (118) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2015
Small of white head, fades quickly then lines edge of glass. Brilliantly clear copper colour. Big dank and grassy aroma. Flavour has high grassiness, dank, pine, light citrus, caramel malt backbone balances well with high bitterness. Slightly sticky, drying finish with lingering bitterness.

rejtable (2393) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
Pretty solid. Pours burnt orange/amber with limited head and clumpy lacing. Nose is fruity and pine. Flavours of pine, bright juicy fruit, some mint. Tastes medium bitter light/med sweet. Full sticky body with a lasting agressive bitterness.
