On tap at Bait Shop in Seattle. Served in a pint glass.
It's a typical golden orange IPA color with a nice white cap of froth on top.
The smell contains all of the best ipa elements. Citrus, slightly dank hops, and bread.
Flavor-wise, it has an excellent balance of juicy sweet citrus and astringent, piney hops. A great biscuiity finish, too.
The feel is crisp and smooth. A very drinkable beer.
I was surprised by just how good this small brewery's IPA is. It stands right up there with the more established ones from major craft breweries, in my book.
Serving type: on-tap

32oz growler poured into a Boneyard Shaker Pint.
The beer pours a clear copper color, hues of amber and bronze with a nice amount of bubbles rising to the top of the glass where a foamy, soapy white head forms, about two fingers high with great retention and leaves a vast wall of soapy lace behind. The aroma is very intense, lots of pine, sap, crisp hop spice that is quite earthy but very vibrant and the same time, plenty of juicy citrus and hints of wildflower assist in the hop showcase while a nice counterbalance of rich malt pops out, not overly sweet at all, just enough for harmony. The flavors follow the mold well, bitter pine and hops spice, very resinous and sappy, with a fair amount of tangy grapefruit peel and a pronounced wildflower character, definitely helps with the dank and weedy qualities but also brings out some meadowy and bright flavors while the malt is a great anchor on the tongue, helps ease the beer over the finish line, great balance. The mouthfeel is sticky but juicy, coats the mouth wonderfully and finishes nicely with a bit of a crisp yet creamy feel that ends with a nice dry bite.
Verdict: A truly delicious IPA from Boneyard. It's super sticky, sappy, juicy and perfectly bitter without overloading the palate thanks the balanced malt profile. I had no problems crushing a 32oz growler over an evening and look forward to trying this beer again in the future.
