4.7/5  rDev +5.1%

Nice surprise on tap at Three Floyds. Pours a burnt orange, almost amber, color with a finger and a half length off white head. Smells of resinous grapefruit and pine, as well as sweet carmel malt, some tangerine notes, maybe some tropical fruit notes. Taste starts with resinous hop characteristics. Get grapefruit rind, some orange peel, classic west coast pine, as well as some grassy and floral notes. The middle brings even more resinous qualities, but also starts to introduce the sweet carmel and bready notes to balance it. The finish is quite nice. The hop qualities are still there, but not as bitter, just resinous (if that makes sense). Just get great hoppy fruit flavors with a sweet carmel backbone. Grapefruit, mango, pine, tangerines, sweet bubblegum. Pretty full body with a creamy and oily mouthfeel. No alcohol to speak of. Definitely bitter like a west coast ipa should be, yet never gets abrasive and out of control like a lot of them do. Very hoppy, yet extremely balanced. Really, really good.

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.
