This one is tough to review.

No, not because I'm confused in any way as to how great this beer is. No ... great would be an understatement. But this would be a great IPA, nevermind a pale!

It pours a shade of sun touched honey that makes me want to taste it the instant I see it. Head is minimal. Nice lacing left behind. This color always tells me the finish won't be too sweet for a pale or IPA and I'm not wrong.

One whiff and my nose is nearly assaulted by the scent of orange rind, mango, tangerine, and peach. Lovely. There's some biscuit there too but it seems to be fighting for recognition amongst all the tropical fruit.

One sip releases the floodgates of orange, grapefruit, pine needles, caramel, and again, biscuit. Bravo!

A lot has changed over the years. There was a time when the east coast by and large didn't have the taste for hops we out west do. They've caught on a bit but I feel like this would be a bit extreme for an east coaster looking for a pale. For me, it is nearly exactly what I want. This beer should set the standard for a Northwest Pale Ale.

My buddy maltbombpete introduced me to these guys... I first had the Black13 at The BeerMongers, and then my bro snagged up some of this pale for me to try. Drinking a cold mason jar of it now for me to review....

- Nice clear copper ale.... slight fog, but more clear. The head is quickly thick... fuzzy... and lays down quick leaving thick sheets of lacing all about the glass... the whole way down.

- Nice bright piney bitter hop scent... light biscuit, bready caramel malt... and a floral touch of hops as well. Slightly grassy and earthy.

- Smooth and very balanced drinker here... great subtle pine bitter hop with a light aroma of floral and grassy hops... perfectly balanced with a smooth sailing caramel pancake batter of a malt.... biscuit, grain... oat-like...

- Medium bodied... slightly creamy almost, but still light and not so chewy sticky....

- A fantastic drinking pale... and different. With all the beers out there, it's nice to see a start-up come out with a beer as simple as a pale... and have it still stand out above the rest. Very good.

on-tap at Belmont Station.
from notes.

Orange with a craggy, billowy white head.

Big, juicy citric hop notes.

Citric hops upfront blend to moderate piney hops. Grain, oat, lightly sweet malt in the backing.

Medium body for the style, average carbonation.

A very hop forward pale ale upfront, but does allow enough well done malt notes to come through in the backing to help balance it out.

On tap at E9 the other day.

The beer pours the expected amber peach color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is about what I expected as well, considering this beer is made by boneyard, as I pick up considerable dry citrus, light pine, pepper and skunky weed. Most IPA's I encounter don't smell this good. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this dry, hopheads dream of an APA. In some ways, this beer reminds me very much of zombie dust, though the aroma profile is a bit different. Mouthfeel is fairly light, though there's no denying that the beer delivers plenty of flavor. The finish is long, crisp and bitter, and despite my better instinctis, I found myself ordering a second glass before leaving E9. So yeah, drinkability is quite good in this excellent APA, and the alcohol was barely detectable.

An altogether excellent APA, and about what I would expect from Boneyard.
