COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only the strong survive.

IPAs were originally brewed to survive the epic sea voyages from England to India. Ours is no different. Hailing from a firm malt background and loaded through and through with hops, this beer will surely survive the journey from your fridge to your couch.

Pours a beautiful clear amber with an off white head. Aroma is very hoppy and floral. Taste is very bold with plenty of hops, great malt backing, pine grapefruit and citrus. Very bitter aftertaste. Alcohol content pretty well hidden. Mouthfeel is just wonderful-very full, round and creamy. I was expecting this to be more of a British-style IPA but it’s much more hoppy. Recommeded.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Yellowish with an oragne and gold presence and nice creamy tan head. Very hoppy aroma made up of floral and spruce hops. Quite plesant to smell. Nice sharp hop flower taste complete with a biting grapefruit hop presence. Very nice hop bill if you enjoy bitterness. The bitterness sits on the toung but the beer is still quite smooth.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 12, 2004
12 oz bottle, purchased at The Foodery in Philadelphia. Giganto foamy off-cream head that will not go away. Damn this beer’s gonna be room temp before I can drink it! Very hazy medium amber; strongly grapefruity, sharp nose with a hint of caramel malt. In the mouth, quite bitter, citrusy, acidic, with a medium-to-full body and really massive hop attack to finish. Nice, sharp IPA; I wouldn’t want something this bitter everyday personally, but it is very well done for an edgy example of the style. A good choice for my 100th IPA.

sloth (2644) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Small offwhite head, short lived, minimal lace. Murky brown color. Nice hop nose. Medium body. Fruity, citrus flavors, mild malt underpinnings. The 8% alc. is well hidden. Dry finish, fruity, different.

TheBeerGod (5572) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Bottle empties revealing an orange tinted amber bosy with a moderate foamy tan head. Nice hoppy aroma. Citrus fruit and some milder malted notes. Very nice taste! The citrusy hops are there but the alcohol and sweeter notes balance this one out nicely. Mouthfeel is a bit oily and bitter but it goes with the territory, so to speak. Finish is more citrus notes and is bitter. Very good IPA! The alcohol is not really that noticeable either amking this a dangerous beer.

smhanna (4) - New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2004 does not count
Best tasting ’strong’ ale I’ve tried. It comes off pretty bitter, probably from the high alcohol content, but the sweet, hopsy Yards taste is strong and satisfying. It’s especially tasty on tap.

DocLock (8534) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Pours turbid straw colored. Aroma of hops, citrus, and some pine. Tastes hoppy, with some citrus and fruitiness. Good complexity.

hopdog (9856) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Poured a hazy amber color with a large head and some particles. Hoppy citris (oranges) and floral aromas. Citris tastes. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent hop bite.

Too much head for an IPA. The neck filled out a pint glass. Nice color. You can taste the hops but it is too weak for my tastes in an IPA.
