A - off to a great start a very clear orange brown with a 1/2 inch of offwhite head that sticks around forever guaranteeing a sticky lacing!
S - Smells of herbal and floral hops, not the hoppiest but smells balanced with tea leaves and caramel malts.
T - Has a nice hop bite that doesn't get hop cone bitter. Sweeter malts and tea leaf taste usually found in English pales ales are balanced throughout but never forgotten. Great!
M - Light to medium in body but smooth enough to session a few without worry.
This beer is great its pretty much on par with their DIPA which I love but the lower ABV would make this more session able. Regardless Yards impresses me every time!

Notes are from 5/26
It's a dark one, almost a brown-orange-red with a fiery flare in the recesses and a brighter amber gleam outside. The head is an off-white cap just shorter than half a finger, but it keeps up well and leaves behind pretty good lace.
It has a sort of hybrid tone to it, seeming to incorporate the earthy, spicy, woody/leafy bitterness with brighter citrus and not-quite-dank notes along with lots of yeasty esters giving off dark fruits as well as almost tropical under the danker/earthier stuff. There's also just a twinge of alcohol noted with every sniff and sip, but nothing too heavily ethanolic to enjoy the overall very much.
There's a sort of earthy dankness that even translates to the feel, though it doesn't weigh down the medium body or take away from the brightness that also translates. Crispness comes out strong on the palate from front to back, as does smoothness in the semi-dry feel.
