4.3/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Central Waters snifter. Thanks to mrmarmot for bringing this back from Idaho.

A: Hazy burnt orange color. Aggressive pour leads to a 1 finger rocky white head. Head takes a few minutes to dissipate but leaves little bubbles along the top. Big sticky lacing leaves trails down all sides.

S: Big sticky hop notes and a big badass malt backbone that doesn't want to be ignored.

T: Wow, sweet with hops. Don't know how else to describe. It's a really perfectly balanced DIPA with the emphasis on the hops but the malts really blend enough sweet to balance the bitter.

M: Perfectly carbonated, wonderful bittersweet finish.

O: An extraordinary DIPA. Most excellent.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured a hazy orange color with white soapy head that left splashy lace.

S- Some big tropical fruit notes especially mango, some peach, some citrus, and quite a bit of malt sweetness.

T- Lots of sweet and juicy orange marmalade notes, mango, peach, and grapefruit notes. Lots of sweetness from the malt and medium level of bitterness.

M- Lots of warming, full bodied, prickly carbonation, slightly sticky, but easy drinking for the ABV and fuller body.

O- This DIPA is bursting with hop flavor and a lot of sweetness. Overall, it is really good but I prefer some of Boneyard's other hoppy offerings to it like RPM.

Serving type: on-tap

Scored a growler of this through the Home Brew Talk Make A Wish. One of my top wants for quite some time, so I couldn't be happier to be the recipient of this one! Poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a dark golden/copper with just under a finger of white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing.
S: Strong aroma of citrus hops, pine, and grapefruit. Not a hop bomb, but still super dank and incredibly well balanced.
T: This beer is so sweet, I have a very hard time believing the ABV. Awesome flavor of citrus blend, pine, a mild malt backbone, all so well balanced. As it warms up a bit the malt and pine start to come forward, but there is so much sweet flavor that it maintains a great balance.
M: Carb-wise, you never know what to expect out of a growler. I was so happy when I popped it open to an aggressive 'pssst'. Carbed very well, leaves a slightly dry after taste.
O: Seek it out. Don't trade whalez bro for it, but if you have the chance to try this, do not pass it up. The balance of citrus, hop, pine, and malt is perfect. The ABV is hidden so well you'd think you're drinking a session. I'm at this point always ISO hop venom.
