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.

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.
