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.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a hazy to off burnt orange color with a thin to almost thick white foamy atmospheric head. It quickly dissipated. No lacing. The aroma starts off with a bright sweet to bitter charging grapefruit pulp and rind bursting into subtle sweet orange and lemon. The flavor starts sweet and rides into a nice bitter backing. Aftertaste seems just about as perfect as I would have wanted for an AIPA with a slow riding almost cloying finish. Is it? No, not really. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it allowing the carbonation to play nice and smooth as well. Overall, as an East Coaster I can put my hat off and say yup, here’s that West Coast AIPA that takes the cake.
