3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Backyard IPA has an extremely exuberant, overly foamy, slightly off-white head, an orange-gold appearance, with lots of medium and powdery tan-gray sediment, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of a bit of sweet & sour sauce, apricot, and sourdough bread. Taste is similar, with a rather low level of bitterness. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Backyahd IPA finishes dry and drinkable. This comes across as more of a pale ale than an India pale ale. RJT

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straw color, hazy, explosive and forever lasting head.
Medium body, assertive flavor, moderate heat, long palate.
Very bitter and dry.
Aggressively hoppy, grapefruity, herbal,
Shows hops nicely but I wish there was more malt. Perhaps with rich food would be just right.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Hazy deep gold with a frothy white head. Light aroma of toasted grain, raw grain and resin. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of caramel, floral hops and raw grain. Light on the hops for an "aggressively hopped American IPA."

Beer of month club. Pours from can a light amber color, slight haze. Nose has a soapy, citrus, floral quality. Taste of some citrus and their are good - but doesn't really taste like an IPA. Eh.

Draft at the PVD (Warwick) Sheraton bar. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Weak aroma, mostly metallic but there’s a little citrus and straw in there. Taste is mostly just bitter with a little earth. Not horrible but I won’t be having another.

On tap. Pale yellow pour with a white head. Bland hop bouquet. Taste follows suit. I mean it’s like a bitter Pilsner. Not much here man. Below average body and mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can, poured into a pint glass. Pours a light amber/yellow with a one finger white head. Some modest lace. Mild hoppy aroma. Flavor is more intense than the nose would suggest. Pine/grapefruit hop bitterness. A bit dry. Medium bodied. Pretty decent, I’d drink it again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was basically a slightly hazy burnt orange color with no head nor lacing.
The smell had a sweet citrus to bitter citrus over top of sweet caramel malts.
The taste was mainly sweet through the hops and malts. There’s a decent background of bitterness there, it’s just not substantially over the top. There’s a lingering sweet hops to malts aftertaste.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs like an AIPA, substantially smooth enough to fulfill a nice bitterness.
Overall, nothing bad, it’s just nothing over the top. Could make a decent grilling beer.
