Tasted a bit thin. There was kind of a smell yeast maybe not sure. Thin mouth feel not much bite a little dry at the end over all kind of mheh. Not the worst I've had and I'd drink it again if it was offered. It was hyped up to me as being like Anti Hero, ah no.

12 oz. can poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange with a humongous white head. Cool packaging. Nice simple can design. Comes in a fun boxy thing inside of having plastic rings.

Aroma: Lemon, grapefruit, citrus, hops.

Taste: Citrusy, piney IPA. Definitely lives up to its billing as an IPA that pairs well with grillables.

Mouthfeel: Pretty appealing piney aftertaste. Slightly "burnt" tasting. Not necessarily a beer to sip and savor; more of an "everyday" type ale. I think that's the idea.

Overall: Nice, fairly sessionable IPA. Good stuff.

Backyard IPA has an extremely exuberant, overly foamy, slightly off-white head, an orange-gold appearance, with lots of medium and powdery tan-gray sediment, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of a bit of sweet & sour sauce, apricot, and sourdough bread. Taste is similar, with a rather low level of bitterness. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Backyahd IPA finishes dry and drinkable. This comes across as more of a pale ale than an India pale ale.

Super fresh, canned on date of 3-23 on 6 pack box. I'm so psyched to get a fresh IPA! Pours clear with about a 1 inch head that quickly dissipates.Nose is weak, grass mostly. Bitterness in front in the middle, and in the back. Zero mall profile. Completely unbalanced IPA, this is a complete disappointment.
