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.

halfonit (1199) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Leaves nice lacing. Aroma is of your typical cascade hops, soap, and some dusty malts. Oil slick carbonated palate. Flavors are of dry hops, malts, and aluminum. Leaves a dry hopped finish. Nothing special here.

From the can. No dates anywhere. Pours a slightly murky golden amber with a decent white fizzy head. Earthy, grassy hops notes on the nose with toasted biscuit. Medium body. The taste boasts a big hop bitterness than the aroma might suggest. Lingers.

Brattleboro Food Coop six pack: pours amber with a whitish head. Aroma is pine and sugary malts. Taste is bitter drom start to finish with hints of sugar later on. This is about as east coast ipa as you can get. Ok.

Theydon_Bois (10615) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, 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.

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.

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.
