4.23/5 rDev +9.6%
This beer pours out as a very nice looking crimson red color with a white foamy head on top. The retention and lacing on this beer was very good. The smell of the beer is loaded with some beautiful hop aromas with a minimal malt presence on the nose. The taste of the beer is sweet and hoppy. It's a great balance of malt and hops but hoppy enough to give it the extra punch it needs to fit the style. The mouthfeel of the beer had a good amount of oily body, there is a subtle carbonation to it also. Overall in all honesty I think this is the best beer I've had from Yards. I am a big fan of this style beer and I thought this was really good. I'd buy this one again without a second thought.

A: A dark copper. Half inch head that hangs a bit.
S: Very citrusy, a little piny. Very hoppy. It actually smelled like something I would drink on a harbor in Philly/Camden. Just felt like that atmosphere to me.
T: Bready, malty, and hoppy.
M: Pretty dry. Medium body. Balanced
Overall: Just a well-balanced DIPA with a full taste. Amazing beer and one of the best offerings I've had from Yard's

12oz bottle courtesy of stmgl01. Poured into Hunahpu snifter.
A- Pours a copper brownish with a couple fingers of slightly yellowish head that recedes at a moderate pace to leave pretty much no head. Consistently rising carbonation bubbles.
S- Some citrusy lemony hops balanced with bready caramel malts and a tiny bit of oily resin. Nice smell, reminds me a little bit of Alpine's Duet but definitely not as good. About average aroma strength.
T- Light citrusy resinous hops and malts that lend some caramel, nutty, and bready flavors. Nicely balanced and decently flavorful. Hops could have been pronounced a little bit more, but overall a nice clean profile. Finishes with some light bitterness and a light lemony aftertaste.
M- A little bit watery, light carbonation, easy drinking, a little bit of alcohol on the finish.
O- Decent overall DIPA that was nice to try. Hops could have been a little bit more pronounced and abv toned down a little bit to maybe 7%. I would drink this again and it was nice to try, but it's not something that I would search out.

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!
