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.

Yards India Pale Ale pours a glowing, clear amber color with a medium sized, creamy head on top. The foam disappears quickly leaving a netted pattern of lace on the glass.

The aroma is muted but has nice orange citrus, a touch of light fruit and a hint of malt.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is very soft with mild carbonation. The flavor begins with pale & caramel malt and tropical fruit (mango). In the middle the hops kick in with orange citrus and a little pine. It finishes slightly bitter and dry. Once gone the sweet fruit flavor and orange citrus linger on the palate.

This is a very well balanced beer that's easy to drink and would be great to keep in the fridge year round.

Bottle into a pint glass

A: The appearance is an orange-ish colored beer with a nice head that lingers for quite a while. The beer also left great lacing throughout the drinking process.

S: The aroma is a nice and mild citrus hoppiness that is quite appealing.

T: The taste is an excellent balance of malt with a very nice coating of citrus and floral hop flavors dancing across the top. The hops are crisp on the tongue and taste slightly of apricots and other fruits.

M: The brew is medium bodied and nice and refreshing.

O: I much prefer American IPA's over English styled ones , but this is probably the best English style IPA i have ever had. THis is an excellent beer and very tasty and well balanced for an IPA.
