April Dirty Thirty Day 4 – Yards Brewing IPA

Today’s April Dirty Thirty review is on…

Yards Brewing IPA

Yards Brewing IPA

Yards Brewing IPA

Critical Information:

  • 7% ABV
  • Available Year-round

My Experience:

– POUR

Poured from bottle into tulip glass (again, can someone confirm that’s what it is from the picture? I’m terrible with my glass types). Good ¾”-1” white head. There were lots of bubbles lasting for several minutes served at 55 or so degrees.

– SMELL

It has a hoppy, floral aroma. I even get some citrus and apples mixed in. First hoppy beer I’ve had in a while so my nostrils are curious.

– TASTE

Light at first sip and then it attacks the palate with a crisp apple-hop flavor. It has a spiciness that lingers for some time before eventually dissipating.

– MOUTHFEEL

It has a light, dense texture and leaves your month with a tingling coating like after drinking dry white wine.

– FOOD PAIRING

911 Buffalo Bites from the Buffalo Wing Factory. The spiciness of the food will be complimented by the hoppiness of the beer.

– OVERALL THOUGHTS

Good beer. This IPA wasn’t overpowering as some IPAs can be.  I enjoyed the crisp, rich flavors. I’m a tough grader but the score below doesn’t mean I wouldn’t get it again.

Score: 5/10

Glad you’ve stuck with me this far into the April Dirty Thirty project. Keep the tweets and comments up guys, you’re doing outstanding! Remember to use #AprilDirty30. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this beer, what you had tonight, what you’ve tried recently, fantasy baseball, quantum physics, etc.
