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 beer’s bitterness pairs perfectly with spicy foods coming straight off the grill. Enjoy it with friends, family, or whomever you choose. After all, it’s your Backyahd.

auerbrau (3179) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, 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.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Gravity dispense at GBBF ’14, day 4, 15/08/14. Hazed golden orange wih a moderate off white covering of bubbles. Nose is orange squash, juicy citrics, pithy citricicisms, straw, light bread dough. Taste comprises more orange squash, moderate hop presence, straw, light grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with subtle hop bitterness. Easy drinking IPA but a touch 1D and lacking any great hop presence.

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Beatles pint glass. The color is a amber/gold with two fingers of foamy white head and some slight lacing left on the glass. The smell has a piney aroma that is also very earthy. There is a herbal tea like aroma here in the nose that gives the hops a different character than the fruit forward hops. The taste is pretty resiny at first, bitterness hits at first with a earthy flavor that backs off letting in some malty cracker-like flavor. There is a slight dough flavor before more hops flavor that pushes back in bringing with it some slight fruit flavor and more herbal flavor. The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a good drinkable feel. It goes down well and has a bit of a nice bite of hops here that seems a bit unique.

Drake (8997) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 15, 2014
12 ounce can courtesy of Travlr. Thanks! Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of tropical, citrus hops and caramel malt. The taste is bitter citrus, tropical and pine hops, pale malt and a mild bit of caramel. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, fairly strong lingering bitterness, mildly off balance.

Leighton (11889) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Can by myself at the cabin in NH. Pours clear gold with a moderate, foamy white head. The nose has a bit of pine, some bread, dry orange. Medium sweet flavor with simple, moderately bready malts, bitter pine and dirt, some rindy citrus notes. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Decent balance on the finish, some faint astringent pine, more bread, citrus rind. Fair.

Can thanks to Travlr: Poured a hazy yellow to golden with white head. Aroma was light citrus hops. Taste was gritty citrus hops, but not harsh. Very refreshing and drinkable.
