Hop Venom Double IPA

Boneyard Hop Venom8.9% ABV. Double IPA from Boneyard Beer Company in Bend, Oregon. I got to try out this goodness at Boneyard during a visit in Bend and was very impressed with this small craft brewer. Pours a murky dark golden orange color and a one finger frothy beige head that slowly settles into a thick lasting ring. Streaks and chunks of soapy lacing coat the glass throughout. Floral, earthy hop aroma with lots of resinous, grassy pine. Really dank smells but there’s also a lot of tropical and citrus fruit sweetness. Hints of mango, grapefruit, pineapple and orange peel followed by some pale malt and sweet booze. Chewy full body with a blast of dank resinous hops that provide a lingering dry bitterness that lasts throughout. Extremely fresh and crazy hoppy but there is some sweetness mid-palate and toward the finish that balances things out. Hints of orange peel, curaçao, tangerine, grapefruit and mango. Sweet booze but abv is relatively well masked. Easy to drink considering how extreme it is. Subtle pale malts toward the finish as well but this beer is all about the dominating dank hops. Really wish 10 Barrel and Boneyard would ship their beers to me…
