On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but has a slightly better hop presence in the smell.

Hazy peach flesh hued body capped by a big, sticky, clinging head. Looks great in a raw, unrefined sort of way.

The nose is subdued but pleasant. Stonefruits, citrus and sugar cookie malt aromas reside at the forefront with a bit of pine beneath. It doesn't leap from the glass as much as I'd like, but it's thoroughly enjoyable nonetheless.

If the nose was solid, the palate is excellent. Peach and pineapple flavors hit the tongue first, followed by pine and grapefruit. The malt backbone is bready, doughy, dry and thankfully more California than Oregon in approach (i.e. there isn't a shitload of crystal malt).

This is the fourth excellent hoppy beer I've had from Boneyard. Nice to see Oregon breweries finally moving into the current century with their IPAs.

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.

Growler from Alistair. Thanks! Shared with friends at the Off Color opening party. Served in a plastic cup.

A - White foam settles to a thick collar, wispy patches on top, and specks of lace. Hazed golden body.

S - Big tropical fruit aroma, with some citrus zest, and a hint of pine. More balanced than I was expecting from a West Coast beer; almost Midwestian in balance, with dough and sugar cookie flavors.

T - Taste is quite similar, with loads of tropical fruits and citrus mingling with sweet pale malts. There's only a faint piney bitterness that creeps in towards the back of the palate.

M - Lower growler-esque carbonation, smooth texture, medium body, and a dry finish. Alcohol is well-concealed; wouldn't have guessed this is creeping into IIPA territory.

D - Nice IPA, and after having Boneyards' other offerings I can see how this slots in. More malt character than I expected, but in a good way (i.e. not crystal malt). I'd certainly drink this again if I were in Oregon, but I didn't find it vastly superior to a number of more local offerings.
