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.

Arrives with one finger of white head that retains and laces well. Bright gold in color.

S/T - Resinous pine hops assert themselves up front, with a thick caramel, bready malt content backing it up. Some fairly sweet flavors in there, but the hops assert themselves again, finishing long and very bitter. Hops are mostly pine, with some hints of orange and lemon throughout.

M - Full body, medium carb, creamy, yet prickly across the palate from hop bitterness.

O - Solid IPA, even with the 'British' designation. Even though the malts can be strong and thick at times, the resinous hops always come out on top.

12 oz. bottled poured into standard pint.

A - Nice clear golden orange color color. Head dies quickly but a speckled lacing paints the glass as I drink.

S - Big on the malt. I get some orange rind and slight hops. It is very strong smelling, which I consider a positive thing.

T - I get alot of citrus, maybe tart grapefruit and orange. Sweet english malt in the center, although not as prevalent as in the nose. Drying hop finish that doesn't linger. Very nice and balanced.

M - Well carbonated and medium bodied. Develops a creamier mouthfeel as it warms.

O - Very well done English IPA from yet another great eastern PA brewery. I like the combination of citrus and english malt. Very smooth and perfectly hopped.

This beer pours an light orange amber color with white head that disappeared in a few maybe two minutes. Lacing in the glass though.

This beer has a nice smell of malts and slight citrus.

This beer tastes of malt slightly boozy and not much in the way of citrus or grapefruit.

This beer has moderate carbonation and a slight tingle.

Overall this beer is just okay not much to say kind of bland, probably won't purchase due to, to many other good beers out there.

A: A nice golden yellow with a two finger head.

S: Not very strong but has the hops and citrus expected from an IPA. There are herbal tones as well.

T: A solid IPA. There is the bitterness that is suppose to be in an IPA but it is a little less than expected. It makes up for it with the pine, citrus, and herbal components.

M: It has good viscosity and carbonation.

O: A very good beer. Try it.

12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a dark amber with a small head that dissipates quickly. Has a wonderful hop aroma with citrus tones, right amount of strength. Great taste with a perfect balance of hops and flavors from the malt. Goes down great and has a good carbonation. This beer is a great IPA. Definitely one that I could drink all night.
