In Oregon there are many quality breweries, but Boneyard is quickly becoming my favorite brewery. Their IPA's are floral, balanced, and smooth.
Appearance- I thought I mispoured this into my Ruination Pint, since the beer had only a half finger's worth of head.
Nose- I was overpowered when I smelled the beer from my growler. I was also a bit disappointed when the citrus notes seemed to deaden after I poured it into my pint. As with all west coast IPA's this beer has grapefruit with some hints of lemon, followed by pine and resin.
Taste- This is my favorite beer to introduce to people because of its smoothness. It's ABV of 7.5% is barely noticeable. I detect some orange that ends with such a smooth finish, I am ready for another pint. It definitely has NW hop varieties in spades, but I am unable to detect a distinct hop here. I would guess Cascades and Simcoe.
Mouthfeel- I have had this multiple times before reviewing this beer. From a growler it tastes a bit syrupy and clean.
Drinkability- Smooth, crisp, refreshing, and a little bit of a dry finish. I could drink this whole grower in a night, if I didn't have to wake up at 7am.
Overall- This beer is my IPA standard and is quickly becoming the beer I always order.

Had this along with some other IPAs in a sampler at the Taphouse Grill in Seattle. 6oz pour. This is a seriously underrated IPA. The smell and taste are fantastic. It's not too strong and it's very citrusy/fruity. I remember thinking it tasted like candy. It was just soo tasty. If you can find it try it, you won't be disappointed.
