Served on tap at Three Floyds in Munster, a surprise to see, but a welcome one.

The beer pours a hazy amber color, hues of copper and orange with a finger or so of white head that has moderate retention and leaves some sticky lace behind. The aroma is lovely, lots of citrusy hops, bitter pine, wildflower, hop spice and some really soft malt. Balance is spot on, integration is great, while not the most complex aroma I've encountered on an IPA, it's just really solidly done. The flavors are no let down at all, loads of tangy grapefruit hops, crisp spice, earthy grass, floral character with some bitter, resinous pine on the back end that's really soft and supporting, rather than abrasive and clashing. Sweet malt and a touch of alcohol is also present at the finish but doesn't detract from this at all, only helps to balance and mellow the hops. The body was nice, crisp, juicy that coats the mouth nicely, the finish was a little pricklier than I like and while it was dry, it wasn't bone dry.

Verdict: A damn solid DIPA from Boneyard. I've been looking forward to trying this for some time, and I never expected it to be sitting on tap in the midwest. I had to order a second glass to see if it was really was the real deal, and it delivered. Cheers to Boneyard for this, a joy to drink.

Geez, this is a great beer. Awesome look. Sticky white head. Rich, amber body. Juicy, rich, piney, hoppy aroma. The feel is venomous. Something gives this a small bite. Amongst DIPAs, this is the best I have had this year. The best balanced DIPA I have had. Definitely World Class stuff.

On tap at CBC 2016. Citrus and tropical fruit hops, on top of a nice malty body. Soft and refreshing.
