BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beautifully complex, boldly hopped, amber-colored IPA uses rye malt to give the beer a subtle spiciness. It’s bittered with Bravo and Nugget hops before heading to the hop back packed with whole flower Chinook. Finally, we bomb it with Centennial, Citra, Simcoe, and Columbus, creating a pungent ale with intense notes of citrus and pine.

Best yards yet.

A – Nice orange amber body with one finger of white head. Retains a bit, laces only a little.

S – Rye toast, rye prominent, with grapefruit and orange marmalade spread over by the hops. Nice. Jammy.

T – The taste follows the smell with sweeter rye bread toast followed by sweeter orange rind marmalade flavors. The hops start out light, then gain in intensity as it finishes. It's a sweet, but favorable flavor arc.

Mouthfeel – The body of is medium, creamy, jammy with a kind of sweet crystalline long finish appropriate to the style.

Overall – A rather tasty rye with a good blend of hop, rye, and sweet. - Breakfast beer.

(purchased single bottle, warm - bottled 12162014 - poured bit by bit into a half pint)

L: fairly clear, burnished tawny hue, slight haze... lovely, tall pad of somewhat-dense, spongy, sticky creme-colored foam... looks like a cask pour... ample bands of crystalline lace

S: fairly-standard, yet vibrant, dark citrus West Coast hop aromas... zippy citrus peel, floral character, and an underlying hard candy sweetness... that rich sweetness can arguably be attributed to darker crystal malt

T: definitely has the toasty, bready nuances of the rye come to the fore immediately... bit of yeast and hop tannin bite through the finish... grapefruit peel and flower petals loom large as well as a cool kiss of clean booze in the aftertaste... bitterness lingers along with a fruit cereal flavor

F: smooth, wonderfully dry, with a curvy yet taut body... delicately abrasive residual tongue scrape

O: the hops have held up fairly well, and the rye character is pleasant, however, I can't see why this merits being bottled - certainly a tasting room exclusive... it has an all too familiar white-noise hop character that's born out of employing too many damn hop varieties... I would like to see this done as a completely "whole-hopped" maybe even wet-hopped offering (dialing down the number of hops used, of course) and/or exclusive cask offering with a lower abv

Nice hoppy beer. But, if I want a nicer mouth feel and more balance and flavor, I'll take Victory Hop Devil over this any day. Nevertheless, a nice beer to enjoy and I would have many at a beer house.

Poured 12 oz bottle into snifter glass. 6.2% abv.

Appearance- Dark copper-red hue with a two finger head that dissipates. Clear.

Smell- Orange-like citrus with a sweet bready malt. Floral.

Taste - Sweet up front from the malt and quite grainy from the rye character. Very citrus-like with notes of grapefruit and mango which carry along that sweet flavor from that malt. Notes of pine also build in later. Bitterness comes in the back of the profile and still has a sweet/grainy taste as well.

Mouthfeel- Medium in body with much depth. Smooth and dry.

Overall- An IPA with the interesting take using the rye malts. Noticeable from both the color and added grain taste to the complexity. The seven different hops used in this beer are nice as well as the citrus/pine flavors stand out. Well done, smooth IPA here.
