From 02/11/14 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing a growler of this; thanks Ross, big Want of mine. Poured into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a murky, amber-brown color with one inch of off white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, pine hops, lemon zest, light floral notes, and some light earthy notes. Nice nose, lots of citrus and fruit. Liking the nose a lot.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, fruity malts, light pine hops, earthy notes, bread, grains, spice, and yeast. Taste is good but seems less hoppy than the nose; a step down for me.

m - Medium body and very little carbonation. No bitterness but growler seems to have lost some carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a DIPA that is quite good, though the taste wasn't as hoppy as I was hoping for. Easy to drink, but I'd like to try it again, preferably on tap. Worth seeking out.

EDIT: 04/16/14: Had another growler of this and it was much better. Awesome piney and citrusy nose which was great. Bumping nose up to a 4.5

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 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.
