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.
