Another excellent growler of Boneyard beer provided by my younger brother.

Pours a deep and clear amber color with a pretty nice off white head.

Aromas are of caramel malts, some sugar, tea, and a really resiny and earthy hoppiness.

Taste is just like the nose. Caramel malty sweet up front, some brewed tea, light spice, and general graininess. Finish has a nice hoppiness, earthy and resiny. Taste reminds me a lot of Red Rocket from Bear Republic.

Mouthfeel is excellent. Very full body, smooth, with spot on crisp carbonation.

Overall a very nice brew. Like I said, this is just another excellent beer from the folks at Boneyard. I need to get myself up there sometime soon so I can try some more of their offerings.

On tap at Parkway Tavern today.

The beer pours a fairly dark, reddish amber color, with good head retention and lacing. The nose is also attrative, showcasing some roasted malt, light pine, a hint of coffee and dry citrus. The flavor profile seemed to replicate the nose pretty closely, though the hoppy bitterness on the finish was impressive. Also, although initially there's some light malt, roasty sweetness, the hops come on strong at the end, and as a result, the finish on this beer is pretty dry. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a fairly long, bitter finish.

A nice enough beer, but for boneyard, something of a disappointment. Not sure this is something I'd want to order again (am not really a big fan of the IRA style, which is what this is listed as on the website).

Pint at "b2 taphouse" in Salem. $4.00 Pours a clear amber colour,with a small yet persistent off white head, has small bubble texture. Aroma mostly caramel and toffeeish malt although the floral,resinous hop shows itself as it warms. Unusual smooth bitter malt forward flavor, then the hops. Getting notes of aniseed and or liquorice. Nice.Nice bitterness then from the hops. Nice enough mouth feel to the beer..like the long lasting piney bitterness. A fairly nice beer, I think though I would put this under Amber Ale.
