Had on tap at the Burgundian.
A: Pours a hazy orange with a small white cap on top that reduces to a thin layer on top. Fantastic lacing down the sides.
S: Lots of orange and citrus, tropical fruits with a little bit of pine at the end. A fantastic aroma, extremely inviting.
T: More of the same on the flavor profile, tons of citrus - orange, orange rind, some red grapefruit with some faint malt underneath.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: A great beer by Boneyard, glad I was able to drink a bunch of it.

Hopped with Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe
Hard not to immediately compare this to Hop Venom and Notorious, of which I think it falls a bit behind (well behind Notorious). Comparisons are cruel though, as this is still a really nice DIPA. For me the Simcoe seemed too prevalent and left a really sweet tropical taste on the palate rather than the sharp citrus bite I was hoping for. Bitterness was low. Send us more Notorious! Happy Birthday Apex!

Poured into an Arrogant Bastard Ale pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a half finger white head with good retention and light lacing. Great aroma of caramel malt, pineapple, citrus, light citrus hops. Flavor starts with biscuit malt with an flavor that I can't figure out, but seems simlilar to an earthy dry saison yeast. The initial malty and tropical fruit flavor is complex and interesting, but the hopping initailly seems tame for an IPA. However, the base hop flavors continue to build and become the dominant component, finishing piney and resinous with light citrus notes and a long, resinous finish. This is quite an interesting and fun to drink IIPA with a flavor progression that is appealing on each sip. I've heard about Boneyard for a long time and this definitely deserves the hype. I'll be watching for the other ales from Boneyard.

On tap at Toronado's San Diego post-Firestone Invitational. Was one of the surprises of the tasting. Poured into a tulip glass.
A: Apricot-orange in color, thin wispy head quickly dissipates. No lacing to speak of.
S: Citrusy-hop presence at the front of the bouquet, big toffee-malt backbone quickly balances. Notes of lemon pepper linger, along with a healthy dose of orange rind.
T/M. Citrus notes again hit first, amplified by a creamy mouthfeel. Really citrusy. Hops bend tropical mid-sip helped by ample honey-sweet malts. The alcohol isn't masked, but surprising subdued, working to spice the brew and keep the palate cleansed. Long, bitter-sweet finish.
I wasn't quite as impressed with this as I was expecting, but that's not fair because by the time everyone was buzzing about this they were well on their way. I actually liked their pale more. Still, this is a tasty, drinkable example of the style.

On tap at Apex yesterday... $5 for a 6 ounce pour (so pretty much the same price as the Boneyard notorious, when they have it on).
The beer pours a golden amber color with excellent head retention and considerable lacing. The nose is attractive, but it wasn't as pronounced as I was expecting. Still, I got some light tropical fruit, some light pine, and some noticeable dry citrus. The flavor profile replicated the nose, except there was just more of everything... more tropical fruit, and a nice hoppy bite on the finish. Mouthfeel was medium bodied at most, and as with the notorious, this beer is very light on its feet for such a big beer. You can tell the alcohol is up there, but there's no sense of heat, with alcohol very well integrated into the flavor profile.
A nice beer, but have to confess that I prefer the hop venom and notorious to this beer.
