Cloudy amber color with powerful activity. Creamy beige 2 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with strong legs.

Aromas and flavors of pine, fruits, caramel, citrus, herbal spices. Pleasant piney nose. Strong sharp taste of fruity orange, lemon, grapes and berries with a nice touch of caramel sweetness resulting a well balanced IPA. Slightly grassy and bready.

Slick medium body with moderate carbonation. Strong and long finish ending with a piney and powerful sour herbal hoppy tongue coat but not too acidic and still pleasant.

Overall a very good craft with harsh sourness while still delicious, great freshness and a well rounded complex and rich flavors.

Smell: The side of the Boneshaker IPA can tells me that it has pine and citrus flavours. Well, not sure if I really detect the pine flavours, but I do detect bitter grapefruit in the hop. It really does punch you in the face with its hoppy flavours, so if you like bitter beers (and grapefruit!) this beer may suit you well.

Update: as I finish the beer the pine really comes through as it warms.

Appearance: Amber gold with a quickly vanishing head. Moderately cloudy.

Taste: Very bitter, with a finish that lingers, and lingers, and lingers (and lingers!). So much grapefruit.

Palate: Balanced carbonation.

Overall: Very good IPA.

Look is of brilliant copper, smell of diluted grapefruit, taste is a mouthful of alcohol -bitterness on the front, but rather dry on the finish. The alcohol could be integrated better. This said, the feel is well balanced. Overall, I would drink again but it wasn't spectacular.

Nice IPA. A bit more carbonation than other IPAs I have tried.

Great, well balanced IPA. A good example of a west-coast style.
