Style | ABV
English India Pale Ale (IPA) |  7.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Standing firmly on the east coast end of American IPAs, our India Pale Ale emphasizes balance. An insistent malt character from traditional floor-malted English barley harmonizes with a generous amount of Chinook and Amarillo hops. Fruity and aromatic, our IPA is perfectly balanced.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A clear dark gold/ copper. A thick off white frothy head that laces all the way down.

Smell: A great hoppy smell, citrus.

Taste: A nice bitter hoppy taste, but not overpowering.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with moderate carbonation.

Overall: I was impressed with this IPA. Very good taste. Definitely can tell it is an IPA. Glad I bought the 6 pack.

Serving type: bottle

3.7/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz. bottle poured into imperial pint glass.

A: Pristine copper hue with excellent clarity. A moderately large cream-colored head forms upon pouring and shows signs of wonderful retention and lacing. Not the most breathtakingly aesthetic brew, but is a great example of what an IPA should look like.

S: A toasted malt character with some slight citrus from the hops. Unfortunately, in the nose here the hops seem to balance the malt and that's not what I look for at all.

T: Luckily for this, the taste doesn't follow suit with the nose. A lot of orange-pineapple citrus up front, touch of grapefruit. Malts provide a bit of a toastiness to the flavor and a hint of caramel. A bit of yeast in the finish. Aftertaste is some lightly bitter hops.

M: A bit on the lighter side, medium-bodied at most. Carbonation is a bit exaggerated, but after sitting in my glass for a few minutes it calms down a bit, and a few swirls in my glass helps to tone it down a bit as well. Feels way lighter than a brew that sits at 7%, almost more like a session brew.

O: Yards is local, so I absolutely love picking up their offerings. I've had this brew on-tap before and that seemed to be eons better than the bottle. For what it is, Yards IPA is a solid brew that feels quite sessionable. Might recommend this to those that prefer their IPAs on the less bitter side.
