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.

Can from Santa. Hazy deep golden pour. Sweet candied hops were strong up front. Lots of piney, citrus driven hops with a touch of sweet caramel. This reminds me why I’m a fan of Summit. Dry dusty bitter finish. Mouthfeel was slick and on the light side but the carbonation helped a bit. Nothing bad to say about this one. Nicely balanced stand out pale ale.

12 oz can from khoffman43. Thanks Kyle! This one pours a really nice dark golden color with a white head. The aroma explodes with candy coated tropical fruity hops and an equal dose of floral/spiciness that adds a beautiful accent. There is definitely a decent amount of caramel malt here, but rather than detract from the hop profile, it actually compliments it well by giving it a hop candy aroma. The flavor is pretty much the same with more dry grainy flavors to go along with a good dose of caramel that is in good balance with strong spicy, floral hops. More bitter and dry than I would’ve guessed from the aroma. Overall, a very very good pale ale. True to style, but with some extra pizazz. Would seek out again even though I probably have to trade to get it.

Dark gold color with a small head. Light citrus (mostly orange) aroma with some pine. Orange, pine and caramel flavor. Probably the perfect APA example from a Minnesota brewery.

On tap at a local brewpub. Phenomenal beer. My favorite so far from this brewery. I’m no style expert - but this has got to be close to an IPA rather than an American Pale Ale. The hops are very prominent in taste and smell - and that is a very good thing.

Cloudy orangepour with nearly 3 fingers of head. Like the way this laced down the glass. Citrus hops in the aroma, Pine, lemon, slightly spicy. Lemon, Grapefruit and pine up front, fairly bitter, *very* slight bready malt backbone but this is dominated by the hops - and it works! Medium body. Very sessionable - I could have 1 or 10 in a sitting. Nice first impression from an up and coming brewery.

DalzAle (2012) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Can. Dark tan pour, little bit of lasting carbonation and an aroma of slightly orange citrus hops. Flavor is also slightly citrusy herbal bitter hops and very crisp on the finish. Nice pale ale, will definitely be picking this up again.

12 oz can purchased at Zipp’s in Minneapolis, Minnesota and gifted to me by Tim. Canned on 10/28/12 according to the sticker on the six pack holder. Pours hazy golden with a strong thick head. The head leaves behind nice lacing. Aroma is nicely clean hops, the hops are slightly sweet and a mix of bright citrus and light pine. Fresh, clean and nice. Flavor follows suit with a nice sweet grapefruit peaking through a light bubblegum hoppiness. Has a medium bitterness. Malt... what malt? The palate is light bodied with ample carbonation. Nice hop drink, I would like a bit less bitterness and a little more of that grapefruit. Poured into an 8oz mini nonic, thanks Tim.

The smell is just wonderful. But then you take a sip and you feel the hops hitting the taste buds and you just sit back and enjoy the ride. Good thing it is called Day Tripper.
