A tasty and enjoyable IPA. One of my favorites. Look is lighter than many IPA's. Wish it was available in more locations, like grocery stores in 6 pack 1/2 rack and cases.

On tap. Poured a clear, golden-yellow color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. It smelled of grapefruit, pineapple, mango and caramel. Nice tropical fruit taste with a great bitter bite.

Another beer on my radar found during my Portland trip.

Hop intensity. There's an orange citrus and piney taste to this, along with a long lasting and lingering bitterness at the end.

Aroma and taste are both bursting with huge citrus flavors--sweet oranges, clementines are the first to draw blood out of the glass, with some light bittering grapefruit that quickly follows suit. The brighter flavors are well-balanced by a supporting base of resinous pine, and some light herbaceous peppery complements.

The body, finish, and mouthfeel is where this beer really shines. Despite the huge amount of flavor that the brew initially floods the palate and the nose with, it's unbelievably crisp and refreshing, with a barely noticeable malt presence from start to finish. I don't know how Boneyard managed it, but the body on this "West Coast IPA" feels lighter than your average "American Pale Ale," but somehow the lighter presence doesn't detract away from the flavor at all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The brew also finishes incredibly clean and dry; you may need some help getting into bed after finishing a crowler on your own, but you definitely won't need help finishing all 32oz of this brew in one sitting because it strikes this odd balance of robust flavor and light body that somehow symbiotically counterbalance the unsessionability of each other when done in excess or deficit.

I know that last sentence was rather confusing, but despite the light body, the amount of flavor the brew inherent contains and the superbly refreshing nature of the beer itself makes it utterly enjoyable even if you're a sucker for thick sticky IPAs.
