Style: English India Pale Ale (IPA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Standing firmly on the east coast end of American IPAs, our India Pale Ale emphasizes balance. An insistent malt character from traditional floor-malted English barley harmonizes with a generous amount of Chinook and Amarillo hops. Fruity and aromatic, our IPA is perfectly balanced.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass in March 2018.

Appearance: Golden with light tan head. Head is very thick and there is good lacing.

Smell: Strong aroma of hops, pine, and citrus, as well as some malty sweetness. Overall the hops aroma dominate the others.

Taste: Interesting taste. There is a strong hops and citrus flavor but with a little sweetness from malt flavors as well. overall a nice balance and very drinkable.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

This is an interesting IPA. It has a nice mix of grapefruit, hops, and other flavors, which makes it interesting. I like the overall balance, and that the hops do not dominate the flavor. I like this a little better than their Philadelphia Pale Ale, but both are good.

Clear amber color, carbonation and body are just below medium. Aroma is roasted malt, floral, grapefruit and pine but it's aroma isn't overpowering. Taste is very similar, definitely not the most bitter ipa I've ever had and the malt softens that even more. A nice beer but die-hard ipa fans may find this falls just a bit short. With all the malt added perhaps subdued is what they were trying to achieve

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a fairly hazy dark red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light speckled lacing clinging here and there around the glass. The smell had a bittersweet citrus to piney hops with a nice balance of caramel malts here and there. The taste was the blend of the previously mentioned flavors but actually showed a weaker strength than I expected. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed somewhat subdued and not as sharp as I expected for an AIPA. Overall, this was not a bad beer, just okay.

Pours a deep, amber copper in color with almost no head and little lacing as you drink. Carbonation seems a little on the lighter side. Pretty tame on the nose with sweet, toasty malts, spicy, floral hops and some alcohol astringency. Taste follows the nose well; toasted caramel malts crescendoing into spicy hops and alcohol and subsiding back into a bitter, grapefruit rind flavor on the tongue which lingers. Body is medium with a bit of chewiness and vibrant, zesty carbonation on the tongue. Perhaps a bit thin on the swallow. Overall this is a drinkable English style IPA with some hop bite. At 7% ABV, it is fairly drinkable, although the alcohol is definitely detectable, especially as the beer warms. This is my first beer from Yards. It's solid for the style, but not my preferred style of IPA and is a bit astringent for my tastes. Cheers!
