4.11/5 rDev +15.8%
A: Poured out a small amount from the can. It was a slightly hazy golden amber color with off white head. There was low retention on the head and some spotty lacing.
S: Grapefruit and a semi dank pine. Herbal and floral hop notes shine through over a noticeably sweet caramel malt body. There are also hints of booze and spice.
T: The nose pretty much sums it up, but there is more of a pronounced floral and herbal flavor. Finish is a little spicy and bitter.
M: This one seems a bit thinner than most IPAs and the carbonation is a little lighter as well. It does seem to be quite a bit sticky though.
O: Very good. Lives up to the "Backyahd" name. This one would be great for sessioning for an occasion like a barbecue.

12 ounce can, w/o freshness info
Clouded darker shade of golden amber. Sturdy and lasting lite khaki head, leaves real nice froth, low sheeting and scattered fine lace. Nice looking beer.
Big nose w/ floral, citric and per-fumy notes.
Well hopped and fresh tasting IPA, with more citrus n pine hop bombs dropping all over.
Quality IPA in a can. Impressed with this one.

2.85/5 rDev -19.7%
Another beer courtesy of the legendary woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Came gushing out of the can making quite a mess, despite no agitation on my end. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, a bit of hops. Taste is bitter, hoppy, a bit of lemons, kind of unusual for the style, and a touch unpleasant. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

3.5/5 rDev -1.4%
Appearance: Deep gold with some copper highlights - small, off-white head, fades quickly to a nonexistent cap - leaves a few tiny spots of lacing
Smell: Interesting hop profile - dry pine needles - orange and grapefruit rind, pith - some grapefruit flesh in the background - grassy and herbal - some caramel malts in the back
Taste: Unexpectedly aggressive - oily citrus, rind and pith - pine needles, grass, and aspirin - very bitter - minimal sweetness, which is a plus here - some dry caramel malts - an earthy undertone
Mouthfeel: Medium body, crisp, slightly sticky in the finish
Overall: Interesting, but not a showstopper
Maybe this should be enjoyed in a lawn chair in your backyahd. It has some citrusy hops, but it is also remarkably grassy. In some ways, the grassy and earthy notes are reminiscent of an APA. This just has a bigger hop profile. Worth a try.
