BEER INFO

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.

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.

Review from notes. No freshness date. Thanks to biglobo8971 for this.

A- Hazy dark peach colored pour. Half finger sticky eggshell head that sheets the glass in lace.

S- Faint citrusy hop, mild floral hop with a sweet malt backing and orange rind. Very pleasant and refreshing.

T- Subtle sweet malts up front with floral and bittering hops. Lemon juice taste on the tongue. Not as hoppy as I expected.

M- Thin body with a quick juicy start and a dry finish.

O- Solid English IPA, was expecting a little more bitterness, but an unknown freshness can be more the culprit.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with a three-finger tanish white head. Moderate lacing left on the glass.

Smell: Citrus and hops, mainly lemon and orange. Sweet, mild malts.

Taste: The front is very grapefruit-hoppy, with a bit of mild malts and a bitter finish that doesn't linger very long, no alcohol taste, it's good.

Mouthfeel: Moderate body and carbonation, it's crisp, but a sipper to me.

Overall: A nice beer that I would definitely try again, it reminds me of a more malty version of their Philadelphia Pale Ale.
