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.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy white head that gradually died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a patch of bubbles in the center, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of grassy hops are present in the nose along with some notes of green apples and hints of biscuit malts.
T: The taste starts off with flavors of green apples and transitions over to grassy hops, the latter of which contribute a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers along with the grassy hops into the finish.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The grassiness of this beer makes it quite different than the types of IPAs that you are normally accustomed to seeing these days. It is very bitter and can cut through foods that are paired with it.

Serving type: can
