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.

12 oz bottle. Golden amber/orange color with a foamy head. This is a wonderful looking beer. Fresh aroma full of orange and grapefruit. Very citrusy. A bitter taste, but not harsh. Such a powerful aroma that you can "taste it in the smell. The flavor seems to explode in your mouth. My first Yards ever and it was a great way to start. Rejuvenated my faith in Microbreweries after a disappointing experience with a variety pack form the Horny Goat brewery. I paid the same thing $29.99 for this Yards variety pack as the Horny Goat case. Wow -no comparison!

sawbuck (460) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2015
NIce aroma of some citrus, and some hops. Orange color, with a thick tan head that lingers. Smooth sweetness up front. Malt is rich, fresh...notes of caramel. Bitterness infuses quickly. Nice and even, notes of pine. Bitterness intensifies through finish. Well balanced. Medium mouth feel and finish calls you back for more. Nice beer.

On tap at brewery. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is citrus with pine resin. Flavor is underlying caramel malt with citrus, grapefruit, and finishing with pine resin hoppy bitterness. Really nice IPA.

Easy to drink but toward the less hoppy end of the IPA spectrum. Hangs on the palate nicely. I would consider getting it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber moderate head. Nose is pretty malty, sweet. Taste is on the sweet side, balanced malts and hops, some citrus, a bit bitter on the finish. It's fine

Bottle on 3/19/15. Pours a clear orangish-copper with a frothy white head. Nose is piney, citrus, some malt sweetness, metal. Taste is pine, citrus, grass, some malt, fruity, leaves with grass/resin for a while. Not super amazing but this is a go to IPA for me.

Bottle poured into half-pint imperial glass. Very fruity IPA with a slightly ambiguous malt balance. Better than I had expected. Nice lacing.

AirForceHops (4792) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Draft at Issac Newton’s, Newtown, PA. The color is a clear gold with a orange hue. Head was small and didn’t last. Aroma leads me to believe it is a standard American IPA: orange and tropical fruit with moderate level for bread like malt character. The flavor has a bit more depth. Malts lean on the English side with a light earthy note. Hops are a blend of citrus upfront followed by a floral and mild pine hiding in the finish. Overall for me it is an extremely drinkabl, well made IPA that was easy to kill a pint. Bitterness is there with a dryness but not to aggressive. Classic in every sense.
