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.

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.
