On tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT after a bruising 9-hour drive from southern PA. (I just offer that for context: sometimes things taste better after a long day; also, provenance [Waterbury, IMHO, being being the galactic epicenter of craft brewing] might make a difference). A nice clear amber with a fine-bubbled persistent off-white head. Initial impression was OMG: smooth, creamy fruitiness, with lots amd lots of citrus, a healthy dose of pine, some earthiness to keep it real, and a dose of caramel and biscuit malts to balance everything out. Mouthfeel is fluffy and smoooooth; carbonation is perfect. Finish is dry and a little bitter, but sweet too.
If this sounds a bit over the top, it was intentional. This is beer number 926 for me and I ranked it second overall. Quite, quite impressive.

Growler fill from Last Drop. Served in my LHBCo tulip. Coppery in color, and translucent, without much head formation. Really nice tropical fruit aroma: pineapple, guava. Flavor has an initial bite, but is very flavorful still. Delicious simcoe dominates. I get sweet orange peel complemented by a biscuity malt presence which provides more balance than I expected from a proud, aggressively named, PNW IPA. My second ale from Boneyard does not disappoint, though living up to Armored Fist is hard to imagine.

Boneyard's website says 9% ABV and 60 IBU.
