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

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.

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?

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.
