COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Regionally grown American pale malt is blended with rich European malts to produce a lighter bodied beer, bright in color, with a taught white head that keeps track of time as you sip. Then there are the hops – four pounds per barrel to be exact. Willamettes, Cascades, CTZ and Summits give this brew a citrus punch and spicy character that greets you in the nose and embraces your mouth with a clean, crisp bitterness.

(cask pour) This is the dry-hopped cask iteration of Day Tripper. Pours a murky orange color with a lingering white head as is expected. The aroma possesses a strange menagerie of scents, with a balance struck between fruit and vegetal. I smell a good amount of celery here, but there are also further aromas of crushed mint and orange. Gets more tropical with some papaya as it warms. The malts are very dialed down here and the hops take center stage. The flavor is much the same, but the malt does make an impression here, and the resulting combination is reminiscent of turkey stuffing. There is an abundant amount of celery, sage, and bread that is displayed, but these flavors begin to recede with further warming and transition to bright flavors of blood orange zest (called by sthlm, OSLO, and olso2116) and papaya. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is naturally smooth. Overall yet another solid offering from Indeed.

On tap at Happy Gnome. Pours a golden color with white head. Citrus, grapefruit aromas. Nice citrus pale ale.

Stine (1491) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2012
An excellent hop session that gives me exactly what I want. A pungent, dank, weedy aroma, with grapefruit, clementine and citrus, with bitter edges of pine, garlic, and the mildest vanilla creaminess. Bold and frontal; washing over with weedy wetness.

Floral, grapefruity, herbal flavor, so pungent and damp; malt not very present except in water crackers and a light, backing flavor of wildflower honey that gives it the smallest little snap before the finish. The forwardness of these pot hops is constant.

Palate is crisp; lightly sticky in the middle when the oiliness of the hops meets the honey malt notes, but it lands on an herbal, bone dry bitterness. Sessionable hop fix with zero deficiencies. Combine that with the flavors being totally my particular taste and this nails it.

Tap @ Indeed. Pours a clear golden appearance with a pearl white head. Very dank, marijuana, grapefruity, somewhat spicy aroma. Spicy, zesty herbal, dank hoppy, orange, grapefruit citrusy flavor. Super dank and maybe a touch overdone but a nice beer to drink.

Bottle shared at the September 2012 Santa Cruz tasting. Pours dark gold with a filmy white head. Dusty citrus hop aroma, malty. Similar flavor, tangy citrus notes but very faint, good lasting bitterness.

Atom (1305) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2012
From bottle (although I have now multiple times on tap and different casks at brewpub) pours an orange/copper with a large off-white head. Aroma of spicy hops, resinous pine, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon, and caramel malt. Taste has all the amazing flavors as aroma with a solid bready malt, great spice character and nice balance throughout. I have been and will continue to drink a lot of this.

750ml Bottled Aug 14 Pours a golden dark yellow, thick off-white head. Sweet dank aroma, a bit of spiciness or pepperyness. Quite crisp and bitter, a reaaaaal weedy beer, you can tell these dudes listen to Phish. Citrusy and slightly sweet, the hops really shine through. Exciting new beer here in MN, varies every time I try it as they have tap and rotating cask versions in the taproom, as well as bottles. It will be interesting to see what it’s like in a can in the next month or so.

Wellestone (33) - Andover, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Draft at Indeed Brewery in their taproom 8/17/12. They were also offering Midnight Ryder and Shenanigans Summer Ale, both of tap and cask. Very strong northwest piney, resiney aroma and flavor, with some strong grapefruit notes as well. Slightly hazy light orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit up front into nice marmalade, orange peel, some slight tropical fruits, hints of mango and grapefruit as well. Taste is more piney, grassy grapefruit. Not as citrusy as the smell. The finish is awesomely bitter. There is malt here that works to balance but not overpower the glorious sticky hops. Mouthfeel is solid but not full.

Tap at the brewpub. Good lord, are these guys for real? They opened their doors a week ago, and they’re already kicking out amazing beers! This is the second beer I’ve tried here, and the second knockout brew. Someone tell them there’s supposed to be a learning curve! Aroma is very herbal, floral, and citrus. Tremendous floral and citrus hop taste. Killer.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 Pint at blue door. Amber honey with tiny white head. Aromas of sweet malt and tropical fruits. Opens sweet with high carbonation, tropical fruits settle in, finishes with tingley Carb, a hint of spice and a nice bitter bite.
