On tap at Hops and Pie. Orange color, not much head. Great aroma, very fruity, very nice. Flavor is off, very bitter but just doesn't follow the aroma and I don;t like it. Super boozy. (184 characters)

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 (380 characters)

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. (663 characters)

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? (643 characters)

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. (791 characters)

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. (1,086 characters)

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. (661 characters)

truly a stunning beer. about as strong as hoppy be can be and still be reasonable, but this never seems big for the sake of being big, although it undoubtedly is. the hops are so fresh in this muted thick and incredibly cloudy brew. the head never settles and ring lacing appears on every sip, leaving a horizontal zebra in the glass when the pint (yes pint!) is exhausted. aroma of mango and other tropical fruits, and of course this insane hop resin that mixes fruity with bitter in a way that seems too delicate for a beer this large. the flavor is just the same, with a definite mango character to the honey textured hops. it never shows its alcohol strength, and actually i find myself drinking it pretty swiftly given its size. great big ipa, extremely well done, seems more of a creative exploration than a junk measuring contest, which i appreciate in so many ways. thanks for making this boneyard, its delicious. (921 characters)

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. (1,488 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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. (1,939 characters)

12/03/2011

On tap at Strong Ale 2011.

A: Yellow gold with an inch of white foam.

S: Apricot blends with peach, mango, and passion fruit. Alcohol is light. The hop profile is bright and fresh, with a little underlying bready malt character. Floral hops emanate from the glass.

T: Sweet citrus, reminiscent of apricot, orange, and grapefruit flesh with lighter rind notes. For 12% the alcohol is dangerously well hidden, until the finish that is. Malt imparts a little bread, sweetness, and caramel.

M: Medium in body with upper medium carbonation.

Overall: This is quite good. For the high ABV you'd expect it to be sweet and malty (especially coming from Oregon) but it's pretty dry. (690 characters)

Chilled grenade (500 mL growler) into a glass. Courtesy of ramnuts and his smooth ways with the lady bartenders. Thanks, Frank!

After an especially grueling day, I cracked this bad boy at 11:30 pm (yes, I do have to be at work at 9 am tomorrow, why do you ask?).

A: Pours a clear pale golden-orange body with a half-finger of moderately retaining off-white head. Thin to nonexistent collar and scattered, broken bubbles on top of the beer.

S: Candied grapefruit, orange, and tangelo. As it warms, light pineapple and peach tease in the background. I can smell the sugar here. I know this clocks in at 12%, but I can't pick up a whiff of that on the nose. Dangerous.

T: Immensely balanced. It leads with citrusy hops, but with an undercurrent of grass that distract from the sugary malt sweetness. Make no mistake; it's an intense beer, with a lot of flavor, but it doesn't give the impression that any one flavor dominates over another. Grass becomes prominent in the finish and lingers into the aftertaste.

M: This is warming on the way down, but there's no burn the ABV and almost no syrupiness. That's where Brass Knuckle and Drake's Triple Hopocalypse fell short, in my opinion. This one easily overcomes that hurdle and delivers a fantastic mouthfeel for such an aggressive beer.

O: I hate to do this to every triple IPA that comes along, but I have to: I compare it to Pliny the Younger. Does this beat it? No. Is it an excellent, nearly-as-good alternative? Yes. Lately, given the shitshow to get Younger, I'm finding that nearly-as-good is a much better value. I'm a little surprised that there isn't more buzz over this beer, but I suspect that's because Portland is doing what Portland does best: drinking it. (1,730 characters)

Hand bottle from Tony.

This is a pretty crazy beer, a really interesting take on the triple IPA. Pours lighter than I expected, a tawny gold color, RPM IPA looks like a red ale next to this one! Pure white head bubbles up, a nice looking beer, though not what I was expecting for a triple IPA... cool!

Nose is hops hops hops. The hop bill reminds me a bit of RPM, and with the flavor, this beer could be an approximate triple of RPM. Which is awesome. Some of the solventy hop aromas are there, reminding me that this is indeed a triple IPA (Founder's Devil Dancer comes to mind for these aromas). Flavor is remarkably hoppy, but so hoppy that it kind of stuns the palate, making the beer seem less hoppy... does that make sense? Nicely carbonated, giving the beer a light refreshing feel. This is a really hoppy brew, focusing on the piney-herbal-floral side (I think), but definitely drinkable too. At 12%, this guy drinks like 7%, which is amazing.

It's nice to try a triple IPA that drinks like an IPA and not one of the more laborious, sticky sweet TIPAs out there. Nice one here! (1,089 characters)

On tap at the Boneyard Tasting Room, 6.13.11, multiple samples.

Bright white head, fairly quick dissipation, above average lacing. Deep gold clear body, multiple streams of carbonation. Nose is a slight bit more tropical than citrus, bready malts. Big hop blast up front in the taste, not overwhelmingly hop forward like a lot of other triple IPAs, re the Younger and that god awful Founders version. Mouthfeel is medium not a lot of effervescence. Dangerously drinkable, I had a hard time picking up any alcohol heat, which was a major surprise. I don't expect the growler of this I bring to PDX BA Beer Camp this weekend will last more than a couple of minutes. I wish all high ABV IPAs were this drinkable. This is a really good beer. Worth seeking out--or coming to Bend for!

EDIT-Bumped smell score up. Other than the Barley Brown's Head Shake, this is the closest thing aroma-wise to PP Poor Man's. (906 characters)

1/2 pint glass @ Chuck's. Pours a clear copper w/ a sticky head.

Aroma is dank, dank, dank. Resinous pine and citrus.

Taste follows nose. Big sticky resinous pine and citrus hops balanced by a heavy dose of pale malt.

Mouthfeel is chewy, thick but well carbed.

Overall a huge imperial IPA, comparable to or even more impressive than Pliny the Younger. Dangerous. (366 characters)

Had on-tap at Apex (2-11). Enjoyed alongside Pliny the Younger to see if the comparison was valid. Nice tropical fruit forward nose and taste, big alcohol warming sensation lets me know to be careful, less bitterness than I expected, a touch sweeter than PtY. Very creamy beer with a slick finish. While very similar in appearance (both beers are pale gold) Notorious looks exceptional with a light amount of haze a fantastic lacing. (433 characters)

Unfortunatly the growler I received leaked, so the beer was flat. Therefore take this review with a grain of salt.

That being said the absense of head (from being flat) actually makes this a very pretty beer. Looks just like a glass of Mott's applejuice.

Despite having no head, the smell is fantastic. I can't think of a better way to say this, but the smell is very heart warming.

The upfront taste is crips, clean and smooth. I will pass on rating the back end because its flat.

Likewise, I will pass on rating the feel because its flat.

Overall this is a solid beer, and when I combine it with my memory of RPM and Hop Venom, I think this would be fantastic. Looks like I'm back trying to trade for another growler as this was too good to not do it right.

Note: The entire review will be deleted and replaced if/when I get a new growler. (852 characters)

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

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. (1,152 characters)

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. (1,321 characters)

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. (1,958 characters)

Tasted at the brewery and from a 32 growlerette. Beer was just tapped and about as fresh as it gets.

A: poured into a snifter with a nice white head, orange-amber hue, very clear

S: Green, pine, dank resiney hops jump out of the glass. Pure expression of hop. Just hints of a sweet malty base.

T: Hops dominate early until a strong sweetness takes hold. Pleasant bready caramel malt flavors are strong in the middle, with a really long finish of more (and more) piney hops. Oh the hops really shine in this one!

M: Definitley on the heavy, slightly sweet side. But I guess that should be expected in a huge triple IPA.

O: If you like hops, then you'll like this beer. If you like big, resinous, pine flavors, then you'll love this beer. Maybe not a PtY killer, but pretty dang close and available in growlerettes to go! (824 characters)

On tap at Apex in Portland, Oregon.

Pours a lighter yellow body, one finger thick white head with good retention; a small bit of lacing though not a ton. Smells of rich grapefruit and pine aromas, very sweet caramel and biscuit. Very rich aroma that coats my nose in a pleasant haze of sweet grapefruit rind. Very nice. Flavour is similarly separated into two extremes that don't clash at all; strong caramel and biscuit sweetness mixes in very nicely with a strong grapefruit and pine hop aromatic flavours, finishing with a moderately piney bitterness. No onions or off-flavours, simply a very clean expression of over-the-top hops and malts. Mouthfeel is full bodied, not syrupy, dry and just about perfect for any IIIPA I've had thus far. Overall, excellent IIIPA that is one of the best beers I've tried from the PNW. (824 characters)

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%. (584 characters)

Appears solid clear gold with a small white head.

It smells of resinous hops. I get an earthy grassy dank smell. A bit of a floral smell and a mild citrus hop smell is noticeable I smell almost no malty flavor except for a mild sweet smell.

It tastes of dank hops. I get a floral and grassy flavor a mild orange like flavor and a bit of a pine like hop flavor. The beer has a bit of malty sweetness but for the alcohol content it is quite dry. The beer ends with a substantial amount of bitterness that is not over the top.

The mouthfeel is somewhat syrupy.

Overall a great triple IPA. Unlike many triple IPAs this is not that sweet and it is somewhat light. This beer does a great job showcasing a plethora of hop flavor. (727 characters)

A beer like this is exactly the name. Notorious...

Huge blasting orange with a bit of dull shading in the center. Thick juicy white head just grabbing onto the glass.

Smell of strong grapefruit, pine sap, a bit of juniper. Smell of warn liquor and a bit of woody character, oak like and some sour apple

Taste bursts with grapefruit and sticky pine needles The alcohol presents itself not as harsh or bitter but more like a well rounded tequila. Has a sweet aftertaste that coats the tongue with more tropical citrus that stays with you

This beer is big thick and in your face. One of the best of those huge ipa's that everyone loves. Just hope it comes back around again. (675 characters)
