4.69/5 rDev +21.5%
A - Lovely orange amber with thick white head & good laces
S - citrus, pine
T- hoppy, slight citrus sweetness, tastes the way it smells, not much malt
M- medium, refreshing - amazing balance & smooth finish.
O - simply outstanding, watch the ABV at 8+ - deceiving.
Served in an 11 oz wine glass at the Pourhouse, Westmont, NJ

On tap at the brewery.
A: Nice orange to reddish hue. Poured a 1 finger white head. Hop haze.
S: Big citrus tones. Tons of grapefruit. Pretty sure Simcoe is the culprit. Really nice smelling.
T: Huge hop notes, lingering bitterness, fresh and clean tasting. Malty in background with a slight hint of alcohol.
M: More on the sweet side although hops balance out the caramel malt. Alcohol also noticeable but not detracting.
O: Awesome beer that came out of one giant f-up according to Tom Kehoe. Awesome mistake guys!

On tap at Drafting Room Exton.
A-Pours a hazy, unfiltered copper with a nice fluffy white head and good lacing.
S-Piney sweet hops and good malt.
T-Crisp pine hops in the front, a rich malt backbone throughout and a slightly bitter citrus finish. Really nice.
M-Medium bodied and crisp with a nice lingering bitterness.
D-Outstanding, even better than the cask version, which was pretty darn good. This is probably my favorite Yards beer ever.

A - Hazy copper color with a decent one-inch creamy head. Head quickly dissipates, leaving scattered lacing along the sides of the glass.
S - Heavy caramel malts mixed with a hint of pine and citrus hops. Overall a pleasant, earthy aroma.
T - Sweet malt/caramel flavor at first, with a citrusy lemon character present throughout. Some bitterness and citrus notes in the finish. Hints of alcohol present in the finish as well - but for 8.3% ABV, this is to be expected. One of Yards strongest offerings and a welcome addition to their line. Very nice balance.
M - Medium bodied with a creamy, slightly syrupy feel. Very smooth with average carbonation. Goes down with ease.
D - I have to give it to Yards, this is an excellent brew. Even with the high ABV, this is an extremely drinkable and satisfying IIPA. I'm looking forward to finding this on tap in Philly somewhere.

Nice a DIPA! I thought this was just your everyday IPA or pale ale.
A - A fairly dark DIPA, clear and bubbly with a 1/2 inch of sticky white head.
S - Smells of soft citrus hops, sweet malts, and a clean profile.
T - Actually quite good. Clean crisp hops with no noticeable ABV. Malt profile is rather grainy but balanced and sweet with a cracker like finish. Hops do show in the finish yet again balanced.
M - Wow so good. Medium bodied, crisp, clean.
Overall what a great surprise by Yards and I think the best part was it was mixed and matched (6 pack) for under 10 bucks. Completely impressed me with flavor and price. Recommended!
