A - cloudy golden, served in a tulip glass, strong head off the pour, quickly dissipating.

S - grapefruit , fresh spring meadow, freshly mown grass

T - mixed citrus, minimal sweetness upfront, moderate sour pucker. VERY smooth from start to finish.

M - initial watery, smooth feel with mild drying after swallowing.

Overall, this is a stellar brew. Even at a whopping 10%, you wouldn't guess it. It doesn't reek/taste of booze like many imperials, hard to tell it's strength over the super hop-centric flavor profile. A must have for anyone cruising the PAC NW. (565 characters)

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. (296 characters)

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. (835 characters)
