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.

auerbrau (3197) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2013
On tap at 108 Roadhouse - Peace Dale, RI. Minty, leafy green aroma. Mild. Flavor starts malty and sweet, with a distant notion of hop flavor. Dusty, coarse green bitterness closes out. Kind of confused, kind of English, kind of American middle of the road IPA. Needs some refinement and more hop aroma and flavor. Not super-impressed.

jcr (2424) - 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

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.

50belair (3083) - Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2015
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 (3016) - Final Resting Place, 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.

Can pour. Soapy on the nose. Extremely light bodied. Not a ton of flavor. Comes across more as a Belgian, strangely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
