Huge thanks to boralyl for shooting this growler out my way. Served in a Mikasa tulip.

Pours a clear golden color with a nice white head. Pretty good retention for a growler with a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries some really nice tropical and citrus notes. Hops are very, very prominent with not much else coming through the background. Flavor is similarly hop-centric, though not quite as intense as the nose. Great hop additions here, carrying seamlessly through the dry, bitter finish. Really a nice brew; I look forward to trying more from them.

Growler shared by Todd. Served in a DryHop taster glass.

A - White foam settles to a cap, leaving behind ample splotchy lacing. Transparent amber body. Looks like a DIPA should.

S - I was expecting a hyper-attenuated West Coast DIPA, but this is far more 'Mid-Westian' to my palate. Dank, piney, and slightly earthy hops, with notes of grapefruit and a bit of tropical fruit are balanced by caramel and icing sugar maltiness. Alcohol is well-hidden.

T - The taste a similarly enjoyable mix of grapefruit and orange peel hops, sweet tropical fruits, and sugary malts that verge to the browner end of the scale. There's an odd astringency in the finish that I don't totally enjoy mixed in with the moderate bitterness.

M - Pleasant, moderate carbonation. Chewy, medium-full body, with good heft for the listed 8.9%. Slightly dry in the finish, with some light alcohol warming that lingers.

D - A nice beer, but I can think of quite a few DIPAs I'd rather drink. Perhaps there's some batch variation to this. Eminently drinkable, other than the slightly off finish. However, I found myself reaching for the Notorious Triple throughout the evening, and it's a rarity for me to prefer a Triple IPA to a Double IPA.

At the time of this review, this is #15 on the "Top Beers - American Double / Imperial IPA" list on beeradvocate.com. Served in a snifter from a 64 ounce growler.

Beer is orange / amber and completely clear with moderate carbonation, steady and a white head of small bubbles with lacing and some nice retention. Looks good.

Aroma is strong and forceful with nice citrus and fruits and a lot of hop earthiness.

Beer is light in body and chewy with hop character and flavor on the palate, sulfur and earth with strong pops of fruit breaking through. I bet this beer is amazing on draft, the growler version is great but if the fruits would pop a bit more I'd really love it more. Definitely a repeat.

A: Poured a nice glowing but deep orange with a nice white cap

S: Lots of grapefruit, some pine and caramel, light booze

T: Immediate throat punch with a big pineapple, light pine and booze. The beauty of this beer is its persistence. The flavor is unrelenting. Towards the end it leaves a caramel, faded hop presence, booze sting and a lighlty bitter, stick and persistent aftertaste

M: Medium body, easy drinking for a IIPA of this magnitude and tasty

O: Good, but more than a pint would be too much

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

Draft at The Noble Fir in Seattle, WA.

Pours a cloudy dark golden orange color with tangerine/apricot hues and a one finger frothy yellowish beige head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring.  Streaks and chunks of soapy lacing coat the glass.

Floral, earthy hop aroma with lots of resinous, grassy pine.  Really dank smells but there's also a lot of tropical and citrus fruit sweetness.  Hints of mango, grapefruit, pineapple and orange peel followed by some pale malt and sweet booze.

Chewy full body with a blast of dank resinous hops that provide a lingering dry bitterness that lasts throughout. Extremely fresh and crazy hoppy but there is some sweetness mid-palate and toward the finish that balances things out.  Hints of orange peel, curaçao, tangerine, grapefruit and mango.  Sweet booze but abv is relatively well masked.  Easy to drink considering how extreme it is.  Subtle pale malts toward the finish as well but this beer is all about the dominating dank hops.

On tap at the green dragon today. Only available in 10 ounce glasses (but my bartender/waitress gave me a BIG 10 ounce glass).

The beer pours a slightly hazy, nearly opaque light orange color with very good head retention and lacing. The nose is a stunner.... outside of hill farmstead out East, no one is making DIPA's like this. I get a huge aroma of rock candy, dank earth, dry citrus and pine, pine and more pine. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this hophead's orgasm in a glass. There's some noticeable sweet malt, but the hoppy bitterness quickly grabs it by the neck and pounds it into submission. Still, this DIPA is remarkably well balanced in this hugely flavorful DIPA, and I'm still trying to figure out how they got this kind of mouthfeel. The beer is medium bodied to full, with a long, bitter, yet somehow still soft and creamy on the finish, DIPA. This is clearly a big beer, but it's not at all heavy, hot or tiring on the finish. The way the brewer has integrated the alcohol into the flavor profile... this is something I seldom see in such a kick ass, in your face, DIPA.

Impressive!

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.

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.

The beer is mildly hazy and dark orange colored with a thick head. The aroma brings some dank hops, pine. Very nice. The flavor is also quite tasty. More of a pine and resinous flavor than a citrusy, tangy DIPA. A touch of earthiness. Alcohol presence is masked very well. Easy to drink. Medium bodied and creamy. I would definitely have this again. Recommended.

32oz growler into a snifter. Thanks, Dyan! Damn, I didn't realize this was 10%. No turning back now.

A: Hazy dark orange with a big white cap of foam. Good retention with lots of lacing.

S: Bright and vibrant, redolent with aromatics of tangerine, orange, nectarine, grapefruit, and cantaloupe. There's some tropical character in there that could be perceived as mango or passion fruit, accompanying a dash of onion. Very expressive with a light bready malt base and some pine.

T: Succulent orange flesh hop character with just a touch of alcohol burn on the back of my palate. Citrus is juicy and vibrant, imparting nectarine, mango, and peach. There's a lower moderate bitterness with a light sweetness that keeps the palate refreshed and eager for another swig. Malt presence waxes toward the finish, which is more balanced with a lot of hop flavor. Citrus lingers.

M: Medium body with upper medium carbonation. The beer is sticky and light on the palate, which isn't the case with recent batches of some local IPAs in this ABV range that I used to enjoy.

Overall: Really well done. From what I can tell Boneyard is the best hoppy stuff coming out of the Pacific Northwest.

On tap at The Bistro's DIPA fest. Was very pleasantly surprised by this beer. Hard to believe it's 10%, as it comes across as rather light-bodied, dry and balanced. It has a pale amber body, a few shades lighter than most PNW IPAs. Nice citrus nose with grapefruit leading the way, though it isn't as aromatic as several other beers I sampled that day. The palate is excellent, however, with big grapefruit and orange hop flavors balanced by an oily and biting but restrained bitterness, very Pliny the Elder-esque in that sense. Malt lends some body and slight sweetness, but it remains a lighter-bodied, hop-forward beer. Pretty impressive stuff, one of the best DIPAs I've had from Oregon.

Had this on-tap in a pint glass at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: great orange hue with plenty of haze and a finger of creamy ivory foam. Nice!

Smell: rich malt with very fresh, citrusy hops. Quite good indeed.

Taste: strong malt flavor with a rich and delicious citrus hop character throughout. Bitterness is quite balanced for a beer of this much hop character. Amazingly smooth for a beer of this strength.

Mouthfeel: medium-thick body with a moderate carbonation and a good creaminess. Good stuff.

Overall: hugely drinkable for an IPA of this strength, both in hoppiness and ABV. Wonderful.

Brouwer's

a: draft served in a shaker pint at the beginning of a long trek home, the beer is an orange-amber in color, layered with a finger of beige carbonation that retains well, lace clinging behind

s: the nose brings an instant punch of pungent, resinous citrus oils and juicy tropical fruits with tones of pine needles, grapefruit, mango, passionfruit; fantastically rich hop aromas just pouring out from the firm pale and caramel malt backing, sweet alcohol

m: a malty, medium body, carbonation moderate and smootho

t: complex hops dominate the hefty caramel and pale malt structure - grapefruit, pineapple, tangerine, and mango all push through, juicy and resionous, some sweetness in the middle with growing moderate bitterness, tropical candy, vivid and striking - pure hop, delicious

o: an incredible dipa to stumble into on a cool spring night, loved this

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange. Not a lot of head, but what it has it retains well. Sticky lacing.

Smell - Piney and grapefruity. Nice hop aroma. Not my favorite profile, but it's done very well. Slight caramel malt.

Taste - Again a very nice hop profile. More grapefruit, less pine. More caramel but still dominated by hops. Moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Never too sweet. Very drinkable for its size.

Overall - I don't love the hop profile but this is very well done. Dangerously drinkable.

1771st Review on BA
Draft to 16oz Pint
On tap @ Uber in Seattle, WA

App- This was served to me in a straight up pint glass. A big tall 16ozer. Huge dark oranges with some golds and yellows mixed in. The head was a good 1-1/2 fingers and left an amazing cling down the side of the glass. Just a window curtain.

Smell- This was a good mix in the glass when it warmed of fresh fruits, oily hops and dark pine. A bit strong on the pine IMO. A good mix of dank and fresh and on a cold night in Seattle this was warming on the nose.

Taste- This was a good beer. I mean when you can have this much hop flavor with a light malt bill and find that balance you are doing something right. Forget Pliny. This is up there with Heady. I was very glad I found this and had a 2nd glass. The hops are fruitful and thick but not overpowering to the rest of the flavors.

Mouth- A big thick full mouth feel. Felt like a cream sickle type of residual flavor. Creamy, lush and piney.

Drink- Such a good beer. Needs to be higher on this list than it is.

Big thanks to flexabull for sending this growler my way; my first taste of Hop Venom seemed off, so here's hoping for a truer reading. 64 oz. of liquid gold consumed during a Friday night poker game. I ended up $2.05, so I probably didn't drink enough.

The pour comes on fire retardant orange, semi-see-through, plenty of carbonation (yippee for properly filled growlers!). Aroma isn't as strong as I expected: citrus, touch of grassy wheat, pale malts.

Hop Venom is more Balanced Middle America than Rapacious West Coast. Even before the taste hits my chemoreceptors, I'm lifting the glass for another taste, because damn, either I'm thirsty or this is really good. Drinkability is is Casey Kasem territory, especially for a big IIPA. Taste is solid but not as impressive: tons of caramel malts (too much), light hit of dankness, along with softer notes of citrus & tentative bitterness. The malts make this towards the top of the thick IIPA list: more than some stouts I've had.

I'd take RPM any day, but this comes out the other side a very good beer.

Growler provided by my younger brother, thanks Bro!

Pours a bright gold color with a fine white head, very good lacing too.

Aromas are nice, a mixture of bright citrus, grapefruit, orange, caramel malt sweetness, and undertones of pine resin.

Taste is full bodied, flavorful, but not overly strong. Caramel malty, and pineapple sweetness up front, slightly creamy, with plenty of hoppiness. Hints of citrus, tangerine, pine resin, and some subtle earthy notes. This beer does a really good job being hoppy, without being overly bitter and strong. This is complex, but still well balanced,

Mouthfeel is very good, full, smooth, with nice subtle and snappy carbonation.

Overall, this is outstanding. The drinkability is second to almost none. Very impressed with how full, smooth, and flavorful this beer is, without being heavy, bitter, and overly sweet. Well done Boneyard, this is excellent.

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.

Had on tap at Brouwer's Cafe

A: Hop Venom is a clear copper/amber color with a nice off-white head on top. Decent head retention that leaves some pretty lacing all around the glass.

S: Tons of tropical and citrus fruit on the aroma. Grapefruit, apricot, orange, and a bit of mango as well as a slight grassy aroma. There is some faint pine at the end.

T: The flavor profile backs the aroma up nicely with more tropical fruit, chiefly grapefruit upfront, but also some mango and papaya. There is a nice piney bitterness on the finish as well as some faint candied sugar malt.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Alcohol is hidden nicely and drinkability is very good.

O: First beer I have had from Boneyard and it is amazing. Can't wait to have this one again and try their other offerings.

Growler poured earlier today from Chuck's Hop Shop

Light copper ale with soapy yellowish foam etching the surface. Grapefruit, mango, lemon peel, a bit of alchohol, some catty character and biscuity malts in the nose. Flavor follows suit with a good punch of bitterness, balanced with sweet, wet malts and plenty of juicy fruits in there. Although not overly bitter, the beer is also a little sweet with alcohol. Slight hint of acetone on the finish. Medium bodied with lower carb (I think this related to the growler fill method used here) and a resinous finish. This has all the main components of a world class DIPA, but just needs some fine tuning in the alcohol, ester and overall weaving of the flavors. I would order again in a heart beat and will likely finish the growler tonight with a friend.

BIG thanks to JM03 for this!

Pours a light caramel color, clean, with a big white head. Aroma was piny, and resinous with some citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is big pine, resin, some grapefruit and caramel malts. It's got a bit of a full body to it, creamy, almost rich. Even though it was a growler, carbonation was nearly perfect.

This is a fantastic, resinous, beast of an IIPA. AWESOME!

Chilled growler into a glass, courtesy of my beer patron, ramnuts. Thank you, Frank! From notes. Consumed in late May.

A: Pours a clear copper / amber body with a generous off-white head. Good retention.

S: Notes of pine, grapefruit, tangerine, orange, honeydew, sugary pale malt. This seems sweeter and maltier on the nose than I was expecting from a DIPA...

T: Earthy bitterness that leads into a strong, almost dominant malt backbone. Pine, tangerine, grapefruit, and melon express substantial, but not overpowering, hop character. Again, as noted in the nose, this is on the maltier side and it lacks the punch I'd expect from a West Coast DIPA.

M: Medium-bodied. Moderate bitterness, no lingering stickiness. Well-disguised ABV.

O: I liked Notorious quite a bit more; this was on the malty side. Frank later commented that they were tweaking batches and this one tasted off, so maybe that's what was going on. I'd love to try it again and see what it should be like.
