India Pale AleIndia Pale Ale

Brewed by:
Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States

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.

A - Orange pour with active carbonation. Hight soapy foam, and decent lacing.

S - Citrus smell of oranges with a slight bitter smell of oily hops.

T - Actually enjoyed that this wasn't over the top bitter. Tart citrus gives way to a earthy hop finish. Malty profile in this one gives it a robust flavor.

M - Very drinkable IPA that is a bit heavy but more mellow with flavor. Heavy feel with moderate carbonation.

O - I'd have this again. A nice IPA for the non hopheads.

A- a light copper color. half finger head that dissipates quite rapidly. A decent lacing on the pint but looks foamy.

S- pine hops and orange peel aroma. hints of caramel malts as well.

F- pine resin and orange peel flavor comes out more in the mouth. Simple yet tasty.

M- crisp and not as dry as an IPA. It has some creamy feel to it but the pine resonates in the mouth longer.

O- It really doesnt have too much of an English IPA feel....but the malts on the backend give it that. A nice beer to watch football with though.
