Experience: Guaranteed to deliver an unspoken zen with a spatula in your other hand... The ultimate suburban brew, Backyahd is an aggressively hopped American IPA with a tantalizing hop aroma. The beerís bitterness pairs perfectly with spicy foods coming straight off the grill. Enjoy it with friends, family, or whomever you choose. After all, itís your Backyahd.

tfontana (696) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Can pour into nonic pint glass from Trader Joeís. Aroma is faint herbs and citrus, cracker/bread. Appearance is hazy pale yellow with decent sparkle, finger-width white head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is citrus with light cracker malt backbone. Palate is medium bodied with foamy carbonated texture, dry finish. Overall, this isnít much of anything. Pretty weak all around. If you had a friend who swore they hated IPAís, give them this--thereís no way they could be offended.

green grass and hay .. draft @ van dammes pub .. very mild and simple, good for a quick pint, no substance or bitterness .. . . To me this is not yelling. I am not yelling. Iím just passionate about my opinions and I want to tell you all of them before you start talking again.

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

Bebum (764) - USA - DEC 26, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcr (2554) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 4, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

iguanodon (139) - Bountiful, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Draft at the PVD (Warwick) Sheraton bar. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Weak aroma, mostly metallic but thereís a little citrus and straw in there. Taste is mostly just bitter with a little earth. Not horrible but I wonít be having another.

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

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, Iíd drink it again.

Bulk_Carrier (3736) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - AUG 6, 2015
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. Thereís a decent background of bitterness there, itís just not substantially over the top. Thereís 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, itís just nothing over the top. Could make a decent grilling beer.
