Had this on recent vacation in Bend, picked up a growler right from their tasting room. Overall really enjoyed this beer, but left me wanting just a little more. Might have been biased after hearing so many great things about it from the locals, so it didn't quite blow me away the way I thought it might.

Color was nice copper with thin foam

Smelled wonderful, strong but not overpowering citrus

taste was very good but perhaps not distinct enough from other high quality IPAs. was still impressive and surprised at alcohol content as didn't taste strong in that way

feel was a little thin for me but still very good

Overall very good bordering on great, will have to have again!

growler filled from boneyard.

dark copper color, great head. huge dank aroma. taste of in your face goodness that assaults your palate with hoppy goodness but is also extremely smooth and drinkable. crushable, actually. I'm in awe of how good this is. its possibly the best IPA I've ever had. great job boneyard!

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.

Good orange pour, nice head that was about 3/4" I would say. Aroma was large simcoe, so its pungent, a real bitter pine and soft citrus touch.

Good taste, pretty straight up, big hops, big pine, moderate bitterness, a kind of minty and peach refreshing vibe to it. Its pretty chewy, syrupy and thick, minorly hot, not a problem, but you aren't going to mistake this for a pale ale on any day. Definitely blurs the line between what an ipa/imperial ipa/dipa is and where you decide to draw the line, the alcohol and bigness of the beer tends to lead me to classify this as an imperial version.

Had this at one of Bistro's ipa events, was pretty impressed, I think it was the single ipa party in September, tough to tell where the notes on the phone are from, right in between two events.
