Luckily when I tweeted them they said they are embracing their proud independent past. To be honest it wasn’t much of an answer but at least they aren’t being purchased right this second.
Fracture is one of the oldest beers by Amsterdam. It’s a behemoth of an IPA that they call an ‘ode to hops’ right on the bottle.
From the description on the website they take a crap ton of hops and throw them in the boil and then go ahead and dry hop the living hell out of the beer.
You can purchase a 6-pack of bottles at the LCBO for $16.95 and it comes in at a heart warming 9.1% ABV.
Appearance: Rich amber. Filtered. Off-white head that fades fast.
Aroma: Grassy and bitter, super hoppy. Citrus too.
Taste: Better balanced than expected. Pine with alcohol heat. Tropical hops mixed with standards bitter bite.
Aftertaste: Long but dry.
Overall: A great double IPA, try to taste it on it’s own, wont play well with many foods.
