Amsterdam Brewery Boneshaker American IPA at at 7.1% ABV (C$3.00 at Liquor Depot McKenzie Town, 355 ml, bottle date 3-Dec-2014)

Pours hazy medium amber with three fingers of rocky light beige head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is pithy grapefruit, orange peel, pine resin, mild tropical fruit, caramel malt. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry bitter finish. (4/5)

Nice full-bodied IPA. A little on the malty side, but not overly so. Decent body, slightly chewy. Well-integated ABV that doesn’t intrude. Would kinda like to see brighter hops, though. Pretty darn good overall. (16/20)

8/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
