4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy gold, beige head. Aroma of pine and citrus, some malt, but mostly a wallop of citrusy hops. Taste is great, very well balanced. This is the kind of IPA I could drink all day long, okay maybe not sitting at 7.5, but I could definitely have several and then several more the next day.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2013 F my last rating. This beer is the tits. Awesome citrus hops and healthy malt to balance. I order this any time it’s offered on tap. Top 5 IPA of all time.
Another above exemplary PNW IPA yet another reason for me to branch out. Golden color. Fruity hop aroma, and flavor is very citrusy though a little lacking in malt balance. Alcohol a little too detectable for 7.5%.

Cloudy pour with very nice lacing. Smells of hoppy citrus and fruit. Very nice aroma. Taste falls flat with bitterness with little flavor. Maybe a liitle too much malt? Big promise up front but couldn't quite deliver overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Way citrus aroma--lemon, honey. almost no head, hazy orange yellow body. Feels right in the mouth--slight heft, a carbonated sizzle. Flavor also citrus with substance more tart than bitter, enough sweet to keep it from running away. alcohol well hidden.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Horse Brass Pub, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of strong citrus hops and tropical fruits (pineapple). Flavour of pineapple and mango, and citrus hops, unbalanced to the hops with not much malt, but delicious in its lack of balance. Excellent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich gold bar body, with a decent head. Sharp Chinook bitter-floral notes pique the olfactory senses, quite invigorating. So too the body is saturated with bracing Chinook bitterness that flaunts a winsome floral leafyness. Neither dry nor sweet. Well-balanced throughout. A fantastic bitter-forward hoppy IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ E9 and PW. Clear orange-gold pour with a medium white head with excellent retention and leaving heavy lace. Nose is appropriately resinously hoppy and floral but balanced. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Resin, toast, light tropical fruits and a slight EtOH bitterness. Finish is medium and balanced towards bitter, but not excessively so. Slight saccharin aftertaste. An excellent PNW IPA, Boneyard clearly have gained from their 3F collaboration.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at special brews. Pours a murky dark amber with a thin but dense and creamy white head. Huge sweet floral and tangerine nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, floral, and tangerine mid palate. Pleasantly understated finish. Beautiful sweet ipa.

From tap. Pours hazy dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and solid crisp hoppy. Smooth fruity, delicate hoppy and dry. Ends with a dry and crispy hoppy finish.
