Love, love, love the Bone yard IPA. What a fantastic beer.
I'll drink this over red wine (which I love on occasion)...

Clean, straight forward, balanced, lively, rich and steady. Easy drinking yet gentle as a feather pillow. All the makings of a good friend!

Nice, deep amber-orange color. It's clear and well-filtered with a small (3mm or so) very white head. Well carbonated, overall.

The smell is top-notch. I get tons of spruce/fir pine out of it. There's a tiny bit of oily citrus in there.

The flavor is well-balanced for a fairly big IPA. It's bitter without knocking you out -- in other words a bit light on the back-of-the-mouth bitterness that you get in a lot of NW IPAs. Much of the hops comes across in the smell as well, which helps the whole thing work in concert. Really big, round, dry flavor. It's very easy to drink for a 7.5 ABV IPA.

Kind of refreshing for an IPA. I've been finding this one around town a lot and keep picking it when it's available. I just had this back-to-back with Pliny the Elder on tap and while I'd lean toward the Pliny this one really held its own surprisingly well.

A super solid choice. I hope this keeps showing up on tap when I go out!

The beer comes in a clear amber color.

The beer hits of grapefruit, but also a bitter piney and resinous quality. A very clean brew that shows the clean qualities of Boneyard. Not a hop quality for everyone though.

A tad bit more malt than a true West coast IPA but certainly very hop forward and just this side of slick on the mouthfeel. Well balanced body helps carry the heavy pine and citrus rind/pith. Easy drinking, enjoyable, and certainly a dependable IPA.

Pretty killer IPA. Was expecting something with way more of a punch-you-in-the-mouth bitterness flavor and, while there is certainly a big hop presence, the big bitter flavor isn't really there. It is still very well balanced, goes down pretty sweet and smooth. Head retention was an issue for me but after reading reviews complimenting the beer im this area I have concluded that it may have been the growler i had it from. Still a very noteworthy IPA. Would have again.

A coupl'a oddities: here it says 75 IBUs and 7.5 ABV... Their site says 50/6.5; I reckon it's somewhere in between. They also do not reveal the hops, but suggest there are six NW. I detect Citra allll through this beer (though light in the nose)...fantastic! A near perfect Citra IPA...I'd drink this whenever/wherever I find it!

Very smooth and tasty. Not hoppy for an IPA but the smoothness is ideal. If you're looking for hoppy, not the choice, but looking for a solid ipa, this is it.

Ha at the boneyard tasting room. Hard to compare to the epic hop venom but a very tasty and balanced ipa.

Well balanced ipa. Low noticeable bitterness for the style. Very pleasant and drinkable. Slightly on the sweet side.

I can't wait for this to be available in cans.

Smooth grapefruit flavor. Light and not too bitter. If I lived on the west coast, this would be a go-to.

Good citrus flavor to balance out the big malt backbone. Very bitter. Smooth mouth feel. Pretty good.

I love this beer, it's a hoptacular brew. It maintains a head for a good time despite its 7%+ abv had wonderful lacing, this is also in my top five, only problem is no bottling, but trips to the brewery and to all the local pubs in Portland keeps me coming back for more. Please try this if you can, this reminds of oskar blues back in the day. Long live boneyard beer!! 4.5/5

a classic northwest style ipa here, with lots of cascade and centennial characteristics. while i cant confirm that those are the varietals used, i can say with certainty that attributes of those strains on on display here no doubt. the color is a little richer than many, brassy, with a long lasting lacy white head. aromas of pine forest, lush evergreen, christmas, vegetal, pulpy. there is a decent grain base to this too, with come caramel malt that while it doesnt contribute a ton to the flavor, its absence would leave this hopelessly unbalanced. its got some girth to the mouthfeel, which is nice with the wintery hop mix. the hops are unique here not for what they taste like, but for how robust they are. truly as strong on the front end as they are in the finish, i cant think of a lot of ipas that do that, and none do it so vividly and pungently as this beast. i like that its bigger too, a hop heads dream really, super fresh and aggressive, dank and sprucy. not overly complicated either which i like, just big well built ipa. if this was available here i would buy it all the time. its my kind of ipa.

This very good IPA was served with a white, light minimal head that appeared a clear, dark golden orange. The aroma was sweet, hoppy, and inviting. The taste was very balanced and even. The combination of hops and malt made me think of Centennial Ale, however, this is a better representation of that nice combo. Hoppy, sweet fruit, and resinous, with a malty finish. The mouthfeel compliments very well.

Overall, this is a nice IPA with great drinkability. Boneyard did a very nice job crafting this IPA. One of the better, if not the best IPA from the Northwest.

(Served in a short nonic)
A- This beer pours a deep caramel body with a swirling carbonation that supports a sticky snow white head that laces as it slides back on top of the beer.

S- The slight earthy pine resin hops grow as the beer opens with some woody hops aroma finishing the smell.

T- The bright green hops has some slightly unripe fruit flavors that grow a bit more fruity as it opens and some spicy hop character in the finish. There is no real bitterness in the clean finish.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a gentle fizz and a creamy texture while the head last.

O- This beer has some nice hop characteristics but it seems a bit mellow for a big NW coast IPA. Nice session beer and goes down pretty quick.
