4.74/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Received this as an extra in the Homebrewtalk MAW thread. Growler poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a bright golden with very little head that reduces to next to nothing. There's a slight copper tone in the color.
S: This beer is quite possibly the most potent dank bomb I've encountered to date. Smelling this beer is nothing short of sticking your face in a freshly opened bag of hops. Citrus, grapefruit, and earthy floraly goodness that blows my mind. There's also a bit of bubble gum that started to come through as it warmed up a bit.
T: The taste of this certainly compliments the aroma. Very fruity with lots of sweetness that masks the ABV very well. I do get a slight alcohol burn, but it's so well disguised in the flavor it doesn't even matter that it's there.
M: Carbed very well, especially for a growler. With the thickness that a big beer demands, the carb level fits. Leaves a pretty dry after taste, but the flavor and aroma linger with the dryness.
O: This is easily the best Triple IPA I've ever had. Prior to this I bench marked to Devil Dancer - no more. With receiving this as an extra, I had hopes of it being good, but I did not anticipate this at all. I will absolutely be seeking this out again. From now on, I am always ISO: Notorious.

Major thanks to John for this extra!

Decanted from a 32oz. growler into a Deschutes teku (I know, blasphemy, but I don't have a Boneyard glass yet). Translucent amber with a full finger of white head (held up amazingly after a week in the growler), which retains as a ringlet, lacing the glass nicely. Blast of fresh, juicy, West Coast hops in the aroma! Pine, oily grapefruit and orange, pineapple, cat pee, marijuana..it's pretty much hops all the way. More of the same in the taste, dank, rindy, citrus oils, tropical fruits, ammonia, pot; there's a definite sweet caramel malt base that can't be avoided, but unlike many DIPAs or "TIPAs" that turn into malt-bombs when the brewers try for that higher ABV, the malt profile here is very tame and the hops stay fully in charge. So I'd say the malt character is "quite appropriate." Speaking of ABV, I would never have guessed this at 12%...I mean there is some booziness for sure, and yeah, I'm definitely feeling the strength already, but tastewise, the alcohol intrusion is relatively moderate. Medium body, crisp but unctuous mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, slightly "sticky" in the aftertaste. This harkens back to the first time I tried Pliny the Younger, and I dare say I like this one better than PtY in the past 2 or 3 years. I want more of this...a lot more.

This is an incredibly easy-drinking DIPA, especially for 12%.

Great hop balance between citrus and tropical fruit. Nice light but flavorful malt profile.

The mouth feel is on the dry side, but this, in tandem with the incredibly balanced hop/malt combination is what helps to create the fantastic drinkability.

On-tap at Toronado (SF), x2. Pours a nice opaque orange with good head + retention. The smell is pungent tropical and citrus fruit with a bit of caramel. I get grapefruit, lemon, orange, mango, and misc. tropical fruits on the taste. It is a bit sweet, but not nearly as much as a lot of other triple IPAs. The feel is a bit resiny but overall this drinks incredibly well for the ABV. Overall, I'm pretty blown away by this one. Easily in my top few double/triple IPAs.

Reviewing Notorious from Boneyard Beer Company out of Bend, Oregon.

Score: 93

64 oz growler filled in early March and consumed 03/13/14. Fittingly served in a Hopslam snifter

Appearance: Pours an orange-copper color that slightly fades to golden hue at bottom of glass with a thin layer of head that totally settles. Not much lacing or retention to speak of, but the brew does has nice oily legs. 4/5

Smell: HUGE notes fresh mango slices and peaches in flush, along with notes of pineapple, orange, and grapefruit. Lovely pine character too. Caramel malt underlies the hoppiness, with a light tinge of alcohol. I really love the mango-forward fruitiness of the nose! 4.75/5

Taste: Bold, bitter with a heavy caramel malt backbone and delectable tropical fruit overlay. The tropical fruitiness is dialed down relative to the nose, but still amply present. Mango and grapefruit juiciness comes through mostly upfront, with the caramel malt, bitterness and a little booziness defining the finish. Has a lasting bitter caramel and pine flavor. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Medium body, low carbonation. Quite oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Bitter, but has an underlying malty sweetness. 4.25/5

Overall: I could have sworn that the previous growler I had of this beer was less malty, but I enjoyed this beer thoroughly nonetheless. The ABV is not completely hidden, but this beer is dangerously crushable at 12% ABV. Boneyard makes some excellent IPA.

Cost: $25 for a counter-pressured 64 oz growler.

4.13/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Served on tap with an 8 oz pour into a pint glass.

A- Poured a mostly clear orange color with soapy white head that left some splashy lace.

S- The aroma is a little off. I am getting a wet dog type smell and some fairly strong tropical fruit notes in the background. This beer bar has a good reputation and I have not have issues before, but I have a feeling the off order is due to unclean glassware.

T- Huge tropical fruit notes, big juicy mango, peach, pineapple, tangerine, and grapefruit notes. Very juicy hop notes, some sweet malt character and moderate to light bitterness.

M- Big warming, full bodied, very dry, not very sticky, and remarkably easy to drink for the ABV.

O- This tastes like a world class DIPA and is so easy to drink. My major knock on this beer was the aroma was a little unpleasant. I will give Boneyard the benefit of the doubt on this one and will definitely revisit this beer that I actually have wanted to try for a long time now. The aroma was a little off so I have to score the aroma the way it was in the glass, but I can't wait to try it again.

Growler pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal 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 aroma.

4.53/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- Pours up about a half a finger of head which appears to have excellent retention. The head is a pure cotton white while the body is a pale amber which shows as a golden straw when held up to the light. A good amount of sheeting.

Nose- Also subtle but still nice. Grapefruit with a warm mustiness. Some honey, orange and lemon. A hint of caramel. The mustiness builds and builds, making this beer more and more desirable. It also creates one of the nicest armpit aromas that I've ever encountered. Bright grapefruit and tangerine after being swirled. Lots of honey and caramel along with the strong must after it opens up. Some floral characteristics.

Taste- Starts off citrus (lots of orange and lemon with notes of tropical fruit). Lots of armpit mixed with caramel which moves into burnt caramel and matchstick. A very small amount of alcohol but it doesn't seem like a 12 % beer at all. Definitely will be a delight for a hophead but it also has enough juiciness and mustiness to appeal to the rest of us. Lots of grapefruit and earwax. The caramel mellow this out quite a bit. A really good beer that revealed itself to be a great beer when I drank it next to some Pliny. The juice, nectar, and honey build as this opens up. Ample spice finish pushes against the biter hops well- both the caramel and spice really rein in this beer. This beer has brilliant integration with overwhelming complexity.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with minor notes of syrup. Carbonation matches the spice finish of the flavor profile.

Drinkability- Remarkably easygoing for a very hoppy and very alcoholic beer. 5 dollars for a 6 oz pour at Apex is a little steep while the 4 bucks for a 250 mL glass at Belmont Station seems like a steal.

Overall- Solid, great beer. At first, I understood the high ratings but did not appreciate them. Now, I do. This is a must try for almost anyone. This is one of those beers that has a linger that last for days.

on-tap @ Horse Brass Pub.
served in snifter/goblet.

Clear, golden orange with a thin, foamy white head and nice lacing.

Wow, huge citrus notes. Grapefruit and tropical fruit hop notes with just enough crackery, sweet malt backbone to keep it in check. A slight boozy, warmth in the finish.

Medium body, foamy carbonation. The alcohol leaves a slight warming feeling without the boozy, burn of some high ABV beers.

A real treat that I am happy to have tried and that I certainly won't pass on in the future. The ABV comes through a bit, though I wouldn't have guessed it to be 12%.

Growler thanks to Todd. Served in a DryHop taster glass.

A - White foam settles to a thick collar, cap, and splotchy lacework. Transparent golden body that is surprisingly lighter than Hop Venom was?

S - Big dank onion, grapefruit zest, burnt sugars, tropical fruit melange. Big, sweet, and brash, but with well-hidden booze. Aroma leaps out of the glass and strikes the appropriate balance for the gloriously American Triple IPA style.

T - The taste is a similar mix of brown sugar, caramel, tropical fruits, grapefruit zest, hint of chive, and moderate-to-low lingering hop bitterness. Again, no booze here; arguably crushable.

M - Medium-full body, with pleasant moderate carbonation that keeps things from getting to heavy. Dry finish, with some unsurprising warming alcohol; probably wouldn't guess 12% though.

D - This was awesome. Even though I was disappointed by Hop Venom, this beer saved the day and reasserted Boneyard as a fine purveyor of hoppy brews. I returned to the growler numerous times, and it unfortunately caught up to me about 8 hours later when I nearly fell asleep at Lincoln Tap Room. I'll be seeking this one out again.

Low aroma, mid carbonation, sweet with a little bitter, sweet with a little bitter linger. Similar to Alpha Queen Imperial IPA but without the underarm sweat.

Shared a taster on-tap as past of a flight at the brewery; Boneyard Beer Company, Bend, USA. As part of a six-week West Coast beer tour. I rate to taste, not to style. See my blog for more details: carbeers.wordpress.com

So good. Had at the Boneyard plant in Bend. Pours a nice copper color and a decent head. Hops and hops and hops. Well balanced and flavorful - completely surprised by this since it was 11%. Great carbonation which was nice on a hot day. Great beer which I will keep a lookout when I can

32 oz growler courtesy of Duane. His generosity knows no satiety. Thanks a bunch buddy!

Pours a nice golden yellow with a thin cap and nice lacing. Enticing looking for realz.

Smells like sugared mango smoothy surprise....high five.

What an icky sticky little fickle. Big sticky hops, tastes like a sweaty Carribean wet dream.

Triple IPAs tend to suck. This not only doesn't suck, it's fucking delicious. Big hoppy sex in a growler. Raw dogs....

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Copper body. Not much of a heaf. Big bubbles in the collar. Otherwise just a bit of surface lace.

Smell - Very hoppy. Dank might be the descriptor, but I've never been big on that. Strong pine, grapefruit. Very simcoe-y. Some booze and sweetness.

Taste - Whoa, hoppy, boozy, and dry. Strong hop presence much like the smell. Simcoe and cascade would be my guess. Sweetness is very brief. It drops off quickly and makes it dry.

Mouthfeel - Never seems 12% heavy. Very well attenuated, but that has its pitfalls. Medium carbonation. Rough aftertaste.

Overall - I think I prefer the Hop Venom to this. It is a very impressive IPA for its size. Only a few breweries can pull this off, but this doesn't quite compare to things likr Ephraim.

Review from notes. Had on tap at Latona.

A: Pours a hazy orange with one finger of sudsy white head on top. Nice head retention, slowly reducing to a thin cap on top. Sheets of lacing form all around the glass.

S: Could smell this beer as soon as it was set in front of me. Tons of citrus and tropical fruits. Grapefruit, tangerine, papaya, and pineapple. There is a faint malty sweetness and a little bit of alcohol as it warms.

T: Follows the aroma with a ton of juicy citrus. More grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and tropical fruit. Very faint malt sweetness, but this one is all hops. Not overly bitter either.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Relatively easy drinking, probably because it tastes so good. ABV surprising at 12%.

O: Wow, loved this beer. Finished my glass and ordered a second right away. Look forward to having it again.

On tap at Apex in Portland

This beer has a lot of hype. I haven't had the younger but I've heard and read that this is a legit rival. The accolades here are just deserved. This is delicious all the way through. Entirely drinkable while only feeling the alcohol vs tasting it. It's an initial grapefruit bomb splashed with tasty hops. The hops takeover but are in no way overpowering. If it weren't for being hammered I could drink this one for quite a while and not tire of it at all. It's thick but not syrupy. Absolutely delicious and happy to have found it before it went away for the year. A must try.

32 growlerette that my younger brought back from Bend for me, shared with him, thanks bro!

Pouts a slightly hazed gold color with a small white head.

Aromas are fantastic. Lots of pineapple, sugar, with some light floral hops and stinky resin.

Taste follows the nose. Big blast of pineapple up front, creamy, and somewhat sweet, with hard candy and sugar notes. Finish is resiny, sticky, with bitter pine, and a mixture of tropic fruits. No alcohol hints at all.

Mouthfeel is smooth, spot on carbonation, thick, but not heavy. Excellent.

Overall, superb. This beers can easily hold a candle to Pliny the Younger. While that beer was more of an assault on the taste buds and a sipper, this one is more much balanced and went down in gulps. 11.8% ABV?! Could have fooled me. Seek this one out, top notch, and brewed often enough that it isn't a pain to track down like PTY is.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Served in a snifter at Bailey's.

First impression... Not what it was last year. Great, don't get me wrong, but things seemed to make their way to Portland much slower this year than last. This and Younger made much earlier appearances last year, and were that much more fresh.

Last year this stuff reeked of pineapple, this year its much more subdued. Much more pine coming through, the citrus is more prominent as well. A good amount of sweetness, good carb, light head. Most people in PDX have been saying it was better than PtY this year. I think the age of both is the big factor as it was the other way around last year, but I'm still inclined to agree.

Growler from Main Brew. A well done TIPA is joyous experience, one I haven't had in a few years (since I last had Younger, IIRC)

A clear, burnished copper with a dense, off-white head with excellent retention and moderate lacing. The nose makes me smile. Massive, juicy, pungent grapefruit, tangerine and pine hop aromatics are immediately apparent. Very, very fruity, with peach and mango buoyed by candied orange peel, weed and floral hop aromatics. Some honey and table sugar sweetness is noticeable.

The palate is great! Opening with a big, juicy, fruity grapefruit, orange, peach and some mango, this beer is loaded with hop flavor without a commensurate bitterness. Instead of bitterness, the fruity hop flavors segue into a dank, weed-like hop flavor and then, the sweeter, honey and candied citrus flavors. Some sugar is apparent in the mid-palate, lending a mild sugar syrup-like flavor to the finish. This, however, isn't to the beers detriment since this is incredibly fresh right nose, and the hop aromatics and flavor dominate. Along with this, fruity flavors and a mild pine bitterness linger on the finish. The nature of the finish is a little disappointing in that I expect my TIPAs to show a balance between (read: stuffed to the gills equally with) flavor, bitterness and oily hop resins, and in the second and third categories, this beer doesn't go happily overboard. Alcohol is shockingly well-hidden in this medium-bodied beer. The sweetness does hinder drinkability some; this isn't a beer I could drink a whole (2liter) growler of solo. Highly recommended.

Where does this beer fall in comparison to other TIPAs? IMO, this should be tied for 2nd (along with the better batches of Exponential Hoppiness) behind Younger, and a step above Brass Knuckle/ Drake's Black Label.While I have a lot of quibbles about this beer, none are serious enough to make me not wish I had a second (tiny) growler for tomorrow night.

Hot mama - this stuff is legit. Pungent tropical fruit, blood orange, mandarin, pine. On the sweet side and with enough alcohol heat to keep you honest, but this was really exceptional. Much better than hop venom, imo. Unfortunate that the kegs kick so quickly, would have loved to have more than just one.

Served on tap at Saraveza in Portland on 2/23/13.

A: Light orange with a soapy-looking head that retained for a bit. Nice lacing.

S: Possibly the best smelling beer I've ever tried. Bursting with tropical fruit. Pineapple, citrus, light grass. Smells like super fresh hops.

T: Follows the nose with juicy citrus hops. Grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, and enough of a malt bill to keep things balanced. Hops don't make you pucker as it finishes and leaves the palate feeling nice and clean. So fresh tasting.

M: Medium-heavy mouthfeel, but not syrupy or overwhelming. Alcohol is very, very subtle for a beer with this high of an abv. This might be more drinkable than it should be...

O: Lives up to the hype. Not sure if it was just this batch, but I was totally blown away. Please make more of this.

8 oz at Apex.

A: Orange tinted yellow with thin fluffy head. Drifting bubbles. Aced it.

N: Loads of pineapple and grapefruit. Citrus has a nice malt base. Very little pine or earth, and I'm OK with that. Clementine, mango, passionfruit.

T: Intensely sweet with tons of the aforementioned grapefruit and pineapple. Biscuit and pine in small doses. Lots of candied fruits and sugar. Bit of a letdown, but still good.

A: Heavy and sticky. Noticeable alcohol.

O: A really good TIPA, but not necessarily the top tier. Needs more earthy balance, because it's currently a bit too much. Just far too sweet; maybe the previous batches were better?

This was an outstandingly good beer. Maybe the best triple IPA I've had. Had on tap at apex, this is a beer heaven.

The beer pours a nice light orange and gold color, a ring of white head.

The smell is the die for. Especially for a hop head like myself. It is just loaded with dank, dank hops. All kinds of hop aromas combine to form an amazingly appetizing and amazing aroma, I imagine they are using all kinds of northwest varietals for this. It's just so fresh and amazing.

The taste follows extremely close, it really tastes like an alpine super hoppy beer, which in my book is high praise. Super juicy citrus, plants, ganja, semi sweet malts, dank hops. Outstanding, just outstanding.

The feel is awesome and sticky, great bitterness and aftertaste.

Wow, try this if you see it, totally amazing this is first rate.
