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.

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.

6 pack given to me for Xmas from baby sis. Pours a translucent tan capped by a off white head with good retention. Light bubbling carbonation rounds the picture. Nose is full of flower and light caramel. Taste is balanced, almost malt centric with cracker sweetness, add caramel, dash of flower hops. Add undertones of peach. medium bodied. Thanks sis.
