Hop Heads rejoice! This naturally carbonated, unfiltered I.P.A is loaded with citrus and pine aromas from a continuous hopping technique that our brewers use to create this one of a kind beer.

Enjoyed from a standard 473 ml Canadian tall boy pint can. The can says 80 ibu and it is really hoppy with a tasty bitterness that I much enjoy. I'd definitely have it again.

Bought in Toronto (2018) as bottles. My first review I might edit later with experience, but have to start somewhere...

Too hoppy for my taste, definitely has a pine taste, which reminded me of tonic (& gin too), both of which I don't like, so if you're into those, you may like it more, drank from the bottle so the look rating is just for the label.

So, will it rattle yer bones? lets find out matey. Poured into a tulip or rich caramel with decent and long lasting collar. Nose is nice of caramel grasses with slight fruity finish. The taste is a very strong IPA given its high ABU. If you are new to IPAs it may overwhelm but personally right up my alley. finishes very strong as well with solid afterbite that dimishes decently. Solid 7+ alochol comtent too. An excellent find here!

Boneshaker Unfiltered IPA by Amsterdam Brewery in Toronto. 7.1% alc. 88 IBUs.

The beer has a dark golden/copper colour and a thick white head that sticks around. There is also nice glass lacing.

The nose is pine and grapefruit, plus hints of malt. This all transfers to the taste.

The beer is medium bodied with an enjoyable tart and dry finish.

Well done! This is truly a winner.

Overall, I really liked this beer, it was a pleasant surprise, since the last Amtsterdam beer I had was probably 10-15 years ago and did not strike me as anything special tat the time.. It reminded me of a radlinger beer, without the addition of citrus juice. I found the grapefruit note overwhelmed the pine, but was nicely balanced by the bitterness. The hops notes linger in the aftertaste. This comes under the heading of one to buy again.

I do note the IBU is now showing as 80 on the can, vs. the 65 in the beer info.

Amber and cloudy with no carbonation, topped with 4 fingers of yellow-beige head.

Smells of pine, citrus, spruce, oranges, grapefruit pith, and a big garlic, onion dankness.

Tastes of a huge grapefruit bitterness, orange juice, pine, and slightly sweet, with dankness.

Thick and syrupy body, with moderate carbonation.

Got this in the KW area, drinking in Muskoka, Nov 26th, 2017. Excellent, big, dank IPA.

I brought a can of this back from a recent trip to Toronto. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had subtle bitter hop. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink their is bitter hop presence. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a good beer.
