On Tap from Baileys Taproom

A: poured a deep amber color, with frothy white head.

S: explosion of fruits! Peach, mango, orange. A little bit of pine and floral, as well.

T: Another explosion of fruits. Citrus hits you immediately, and is backed up by a good amount of malt, and some pine comes out as it warms.

M: medium body, prickly carbonation.

O: absolutely delicious DIPA from Boneyard. Now, I need some Notorious.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a teku, a clear amber color with a fluffy white head. Was not expecting the color. Smell is phenomenal. Lots of tropical fruits, Papaya, mango, pineapple and a touch of pine. Taste similar to the smell. Flavor just coats your mouth. This is a very balanced double. The malt lingers in the background and supports the hops without getting in the way. Very Solid. Would compare this to DRIPA and Bodhi.

So to start with the nose on this is grapefruit and marijuana (or Cascade hops). If you can imagine how good that combination would smell, that's it. Btw Appearance was light copper with a strangely thin, weak, head. Moderate lacing. Carbonation is low, but seemingly perfect for the beer. Taste starts with a big green hoppy kick up front that lingers and takes the reigns of a well developed malt profile. It's nearly perfect. Slight warmth going down.

All in all this is fantastic. For the record I'm new to this, so that was more or less free associative typing while drinking a glass, but to me this is world class. Maybe could have used a bit more carbonation, but that could be attributed to lots of things. This is a truly world class beer although a bit visually darker than I like for the style.
