From Toronto’s Amsterdam Brewery comes their “Boneshaker Unfiltered India Pale Ale” a beer that was originally just an experiment. The beer pours a cloudy orange copper colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of malts, caramel and floral hops. The flavour is of sweet caramel, malts, citrus, hops bitterness and pine. The alcohol content comes in at 7.1% with an IBU of 65. The beer is low on the IBU compared to the West Coast Style IPA but it is still very flavourful.
Commercial Description: It started as an experiment that asked the question: “Exactly how many hops could fit in a beer?” Well, the brewers at Amsterdam answered that question so well that Boneshaker IPA graduated to the brewery’s line-up of always available favourites. And the beer that answered that question so admirably? An unfiltered IPA born from a continuous hopping method that blends Amarillo hops with seven different malts to produce a large hop character not for the faint of heart.
