On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and slight tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with lots of tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some fantastic fruity flavors.

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.

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.

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, bottleworks

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!
