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.

Aroma of citrus and caramel malt

12 ounce bottle into a can glass.

a: Peachy orange with a slight haze. Bubbly white 2 finger head.

s: Toasty malts and a bit of sweetness.

t: Toasted malt, an estery, fruitiness, floral, citrus, mild spice and bitter finish.

mf: A very pleasant beer with a medium bodied, medium high carbonation.

o: Drinkable and balanced. Hides the 7% well. Hanging out and want a couple about the "session" line? Grab a few.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear pale orange with a small white head. The aroma is a really good blend of hops and citrus. The flavor is a knockout. Big hop flavor with a nice citrus blend. Really good IPA.
