Notes/Commercial Description:
This beautifully complex, boldly hopped, amber-colored IPA uses rye malt to give the beer a subtle spiciness. It’s bittered with Bravo and Nugget hops before heading to the hop back packed with whole flower Chinook. Finally, we bomb it with Centennial, Citra, Simcoe, and Columbus, creating a pungent ale with intense notes of citrus and pine.

Pours a slightly hazy, dark golden orange color with a two finger, pillowy white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap/ring. Excellent retention with streaks of soapy lacing coating the glass on the way down. Looks very good.

Slightly spicy sweet malt aroma that's surprisingly lacking in hop character. Slightly floral with subtle earthy pine and hints of fresh cut grass but the rye and sweet malt notes nearly completely overpowers all of the hop character. There's supposedly bravo, nugget, chinook, centennial, Citra, simcoe and Columbus but I'm struggling to pick up much of a hop presence. Lots of rye and caramel along with toffee, roasted nut, toast and caraway seed. Not offensive but the nose is very disappointing.

On the lighter end of medium body with a subtle spicy rye presence along with a delicate earthy hop presence that is almost completely overpowered by the prominent sweet malt bill. Dry with some lingering bitterness complimented by peppery rye before the strong malt backbone takes over. Strong rye and caramel sweetness along with some roasted almond, toffee, hazelnut and a touch of dark fruit. Overall, this beer is somewhat decently balanced and easy to drink but the hop presence is severely muted. Not a bad beer but kind of disappointing offering from a solid brewery. I wouldn't order this beer again.

Poured into a pint glass, color is amber, lots of fine bubbles, head is off white with smaller bubbles, dense about 1/2 inch thick and lingers and laces the glass.

Smell is hoppy then blends with earthy rye malt notes, maybe some grass and light pine from the hops.

Taste is very clean, rye comes through nicely, light earthiness and pepperiness, hops are grassy and some pine. Flavor is very nice and focuses the rye well.

Mouthfeel is nicely done, lingering flavors focus on the tongue, lighter on the cheeks, drying qualities are pretty immediate and expected for an ale of this style.

Overall, this is a very well done rye ale - rye flavors are noticeable throughout with solid aroma and nice drying mouthfeel.

Cask at Resurection Ale House. Yards Rye IPA holds a bright golden color with off orange tints, topped with a white head, quite nice off the firkin. Smells of floral hops with some grapefruit and slight pine, backed by a good malt base and rye notes. Taste the same with a slight bitterness, but not over the top since this is an english version IPA. A lot of malt sweetness, not very bitter with some rye malt backing, nothing too extreme, A pretty dead feel from the cask, smooth and brisk with a abv not over the top leaving it pretty drinkable. If this is fresh which I assume it is, this is pretty lackluster.
