Drank on-tap at Yard House, Boston, MA
Served in a pint glass

The beer poured a crystal clear, orangey-amber color. A small, fluffy, bright white head topped the liquid. The head eventually faded to a lasting cap of froth. Chunks of lacing clung to the glass.

The nose was hoppy and sweet. Fruity. Candied orange peel was most noticeable. Touch of mango and brown sugar. Some bubblegum notes were detectible as well.

Like the aroma, the flavor profile was also quite hoppy yet well balanced. Sweet caramel malts came through on the front end before the hops appeared. The hops were punchy and fruity. Candied orange peel dominated. Notes of mango and papaya were noticeable as well. The finish was slightly piney and only moderately bitter.

The mouthfeel was creamy, smooth and medium-full bodied for the style. The liquid contained a fine, moderate effervescence that made the beer to glide along my palate.

Yard House India Pale Ale may not be the hoppiest IPA out there but it was quite flavorful and remarkably drinkable. I would recommend it to anyone.
