BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States
yardsbrewing.com

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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a chilled 12 oz. bottle into an ale glass.
Looks: Light brown with copper tones, 1 finger of head, virtually no aeration.
Aroma: Strawberries, mangoes, some malt.
Taste: HOPS, barley in the background, no fruit, no complexity.
Mouthfeel: Some sticky bitterness at the end, not necessarily bad.
Overall: A decent IPA, but in a crowded field of IPAs, nothing to stand out.

Look, all these beers (IPA's) look good to me. This certainly doesn't have the citrus smell of an American IPA in fact it's more beery/malty with some floral/light citrus notes in the background but hey, were rating beer here, I'm giving it a 4.5 here. I love the taste of this beer , for me it's the right mix of piney hops and malt, wonderful balance and drinkability. Starts out slightly sweet then goes into the hop/malt blend with some bitter elements lingering...gotta admit this is one of my go to beers. At 7% this seems like a session beer to me. Dangerous...great !

A very easy drinking IPA and I'm not a big fan of that particular beer style. Very smooth IPA with malty flavor and a citrusy smell. Flavor is really good. Would get this again and I don't like IPA style

There are so many good IPA's out there today I typically find myself wondering around the beer distributor trying to figure out which one I want to buy. After about a half hour or so of scoping things out I find myself carrying a case of yards IPA to the counter more often than not. I'm in love with this beer is so easy to drink so perfectly balanced and smooth. By far my favorite year-round IPA

Red-copper with a fluffy, off-white head dying to a thick film leaving spongy lace.

Smell is grapefruit pine, slight cannabis, rug, apple cider vinegar and toast.

Taste is pine, toast, caramel and grapefruit.

Semi-dry, crisp and chewy with a lot of bitter elements.
