4.48/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

On tap at Toronado poured into a generic tulip glass.
Yellow-orange color, finger thick head that disipated quickly.
Smell of crushed blueberries an hay.
Tastes like a cross between fruit punch and a clean hot IPA in a good way.
Most prominent are mango and grilled pinneapple flavors.
Very strong but very smooth.
Reminds me of Double Mtn's white ale

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

Had it on tap at the local down the street (Toronado)

Simply one of the best 2IPA's I've had in a long time, maybe one of my all-time favorites. Pours golden with a nice thick head - nose is pure sticky grapefruit cascade/simcoe smell with some balancing grassy, herbal notes. Really good nose.

Taste is equally incredible, just clean, almost perfect IPA, no stickiness, no alcohol burn (surprising at 10%)...among the most balanced 2IPA's I've ever had.

I tried this at the brewery a couple years ago when I was in bend and remember liking it, but totally forgot how good it was.

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Apex bar.

A: Golden orange color with a thin ring of head but good lacing.

N: Hops show up as dried pineapple and some onion. Grapefruit and some earth. Don't get much pine, surprisingly. Also, this is not as intensely hoppy or as clean as I'd hope and expect.

T: Really quite sweet with more 'hop juice' than alpha acids. Seems to be more along the lines of a sweetened barleywine.

M: Sticky and big bodied. I really like the resinous texture of this one.

O: Not my favorite thing from Boneyard. Despite being big and burly, the hops just aren't shining through here like they do in RPM or Hop Venom. It's a good beer, but not top tier.

Drank on-tap at Toronado, San Francisco, CA
Served in a cervoise

Hazy, dark orangey-amber appearance. The small, off-white head fell to a thin cap of froth. Streaks of drippy lacing coated the top portion of the glass.

The nose was hoppy and punchy. Intense, citrusy hop notes. Orange peel was quite apparent. Some tropical fruits. Good amount of caramel malt sweetness. Touch of brown sugar.

The flavor profile was very similar to the aroma. Super hoppy. Candied orange peel dominated. Rich caramel malts came through on the front end. Tropical fruits were noticeable in the center. Ruby red grapefruit appeared in the finish. Overall, very nicely balanced.

The mouthfeel was super smooth with a fine moderate effervescence. Slick and creamy. Fuller bodied for the style.

Boneyard Brewing's Nefarious is a flavorful yet immensely drinkable double IPA. This is definitely worth seeing out.
