Thanks for the growler, Jeff! Poured into Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a deep amber with a fluffy, greasy and thick off-white head that left a network of sticky lace down the glass. Head slowly faded into a thin wispy film.
S: Massive and extremely fresh notes of juicy citrus all the way. This beer smells freaking amazing. Tropical hints of mango and pineapple mix well with grapefruit pith, tangerine nectar and a fresh bouquet of flowers.
T: A little more malt than the nose suggested but still extremely hoppy. Citrus and tropical fruits dominate with flavors of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, and flowers. The aftertaste is lightly sweet with nectar and fruity.
M: Medium-full body, very drinkable and smooth mouthfeel, not greasy, not viscous, no alcohol, not cloying, with smooth soft carbonation. Drinks amazingly.
O: One of the best dipas I’ve had the pleasure to drink. It’s incredibly flavorful, smells like nothing else, and has a delicate yet potent flavor. Seek this brew out, fourwheelz.

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.
