Very well balanced ipa, a little hoppier than the usual ipa very well worth it as I prefer doubles or imperial ipas, golden color with a good amount of carbonation, alcohol taste is well hidden and is always refreshing and a pleasure to find on tap while out.

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 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.
