On tap at Hops and Pie. Was it hoppy? Yes but it wasn't anything special to me and had a weird malt flavor. Just strange. I know I am in the minority here and that is ok.

On tap at Apex in Portland, Oregon.

Pours a medium golden-copper hued body, one finger white head with good retention, not much lacing. Smells primarily of grapefruit, tropical fruit and pine mixed in with a bit of caramel. Hop-forward, intense and nicely balanced. Flavour is similarly excellent; tropical fruits and pine flavours pop out, with a bit of a floral presence, balanced just enough by the caramel and bread. It's a fair bit different than Notorious. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, crisp, dry, slightly resinous, easy to drink. Overall, I loved this one and would highly recommend to anyone visiting the PNW.

Surprisingly smooth for a double IPA. Hoppy but not dank or overpowering

There are several great 2xIPAs out there, but this one in contention for the best. Might not have the hype or marketing of Pliny, but it's world class. Boneyard is only available on tap... so try to track this gem down at a good beer bar.
