(Shelburne, NS) - Boxing Rock Brewing released Bursted! IPA and say  "Warning: This beer is hoppy!" but they say not to worry, they made sure the bitterness wasn't too over powering. Bursted! IPA is this year's runner up in their black box challenge. Brewed in collaboration with home brewer Derek Wood. The beer is full of late addition hops with Derek insisting on a mountain of dry hops too. Boxing Rock says "Balanced nicely by a great pale malt structure with a smooth creamy mouthfeel, it finishes dry so you can savour all the great hops we threw into this beer." Look for the 6.5% ABV and 58 IBU beer at the brewery and coming soon to the Halifax area private stores.
