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.

3.7/5 rDev -2.1%
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.
