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: Looks like an IPA. Good amount of carbonation.
Smell: Citrus, malt
Taste: Follows the nose: malty and citrusy.
Feel: Very smooth. Medium mouthfeel.
Overall: I dig this beer. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to get it, but if I saw it on the shelf and I wanted an easy drinking IPA, I'd snag it. Above average, but not excellent. Probably a good transition beer.
