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.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Poured a deeper but glowing orange color with good carbonation and a nice white cap

S: Big pine and citrus.

T: As it was on draft. Outstanding. Perhaps the best IPA I have ever had. Loads of pine and citrus, a tad acidic, caramel, a bit oily but yet tasty and still crisp. The hops are fresh and tasty. Just amazingly good.

M: Medium body, well carbonated and loads of taste.

O: Best of the best.

(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.

On tap at Chucks.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a small slightly off-white head on top. Good retention, leaving a nice cap on top. Thin lacing down the sides of the glass.

S: Nice and citrusy, some tropical fruit including grapefruit, orange, and some lemon. A bit of grainy malt and caramel on the back end.

T: Similar to the aroma, a nice and citrusy flavor, grapefruit and more orange with pine mixed in. Has a nice bitterness on the finish, but not overly so. Very smooth.

M: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Easy drinking.

O: Another winner from Boneyard, not quite as good as Hop Venom, but would gladly drink this one often.
