1771st Review on BA
Draft to 16oz Pint
On tap @ Uber in Seattle, WA
App- This was served to me in a straight up pint glass. A big tall 16ozer. Huge dark oranges with some golds and yellows mixed in. The head was a good 1-1/2 fingers and left an amazing cling down the side of the glass. Just a window curtain.
Smell- This was a good mix in the glass when it warmed of fresh fruits, oily hops and dark pine. A bit strong on the pine IMO. A good mix of dank and fresh and on a cold night in Seattle this was warming on the nose.
Taste- This was a good beer. I mean when you can have this much hop flavor with a light malt bill and find that balance you are doing something right. Forget Pliny. This is up there with Heady. I was very glad I found this and had a 2nd glass. The hops are fruitful and thick but not overpowering to the rest of the flavors.
Mouth- A big thick full mouth feel. Felt like a cream sickle type of residual flavor. Creamy, lush and piney.
Drink- Such a good beer. Needs to be higher on this list than it is.

On tap once again at one of the Bistro fests, my review #2400. As usual, Boneyard offers up a very light, yellow and orange colored ipa. Aroma is a blast of pine. Pine venom. Mixed in with that is a decent amount of tropical fruit as well. Very nice.
Taste, jeez, hides the alcohol so well, such a light malt bill, such a powerful hop flavor without abrasive bitterness. This is how its done, boneyard makes so many great versions of ipas and whatnot. Mouthfeel just keeps droppin' mad amounts of hop bomb grapefruit, pine and mango all up in yo senses. The malt bill does start to get heavier as you drink this, the hops ebb and flow and fade away slightly.
Usual stuff, tons of amarillo, simcoe and citra I would surmise. This is the new evolution of big hopped beers. Lots of proprietary hops, sugar, and little malt. Delicious.
