On tap at Urban Family Public House, pours a hazy dark golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is intensely hoppy with loads of piney and resinous hops, and not much else. Flavour brings out loads of hops, with resinous and piney hops, wheat (which subdues the hops a little), and just enough malt to back. A monstrous hom bomb, only subdued by the wheat. Great one.

Draft at Uber. Oh, man, this is a genius beer for sure. Pours a slightly hazy bright gold with a creamy, eggy-looking slab of white mousse on top. Big fresh fruity nose, lots of oranges and tangerines and pineapple. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Light toasty nutty mid palate with bursting tangy citric notes all over the place. Clean bright refreshing finish. Worth pitchers.

Fantastic awesome. Huge grapefruit citrus aroma. Flavor is just enormous citrus, grapefruit, almost orangey with perfect malt balance. There’s gotta be a butt load of Amarillo hops in here. Creamy and smooth texture. Really no wheat aspects that i can decipher. Probably one of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had.

Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured clear amber with a thin off-white head. Nice hop nose. Sort of dry, fizzy mouthfeel. Good hop bitterness and presence as expected form Boneyard. Some wheated malt sweetness and bread tones with citrus and earthy spices. Nice, not their best though.
