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 Ė 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.

Aroma is soft and piney... With a mild foral note. It pours deep golden with a nice lingering white head..... Taste starts sharp and astringent it finishes long and bitter. Not a whole lot of discernable flavors mainly sharp and bitter hops. Palate is even and medium. Overall this is a solid brew worth a try but I wonít make room in my fridge for it...

Lukaduke (2243) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Pours a nice deep golden color with three fingers of sticky foam that laces and sits nicely. Aromas are big and ripe hop notes; spicy, rustic grass, citrus ,mango, pineapple on the front and some caramel malts in the back. On the palate its focused and clean with great citrus fruit and grassy bitterness riding a smooth malty backbone ! Nice Beer... Thanks Khoffman !

Tap. Pours clear amber with a small white head and decent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Flavor about the same, lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Light bodied, but very refreshing.

piscator34 (1974) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Draft sample. Dark gold in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of sweet orange, black pepper, pine sap, a bit of pale malt, and herbs. Favors are super hop forward with notes of raw hop cone, white grapefruit, spice, and tangerine. Quite dry on the palate and light bodied. Magnificent stuff.

[On-tap at Indeed] This rating is for the Day Tripper dry hopped with Summit. Pours hazy amber with a nice off-white head. Aroma is a blast of grapefruit rind. Taste is really interesting--just juicy grapefruit and blood orange. Guerde got celery taste from it, which I could see, although it didnít detract from the beer. There was also a lot of papaya and solid malt. Nice mouthfeel, smooth. Really nice beer, better than Fresh Hop, and love the flavor profile.

tennisjoel (1180) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Golden pour with an average white head. Aromas of grapefruit, earthy hops. One of the more hop forward in the APA style. Very good palate. A good session beer with a lot of flavor. Reminds me a bit of Moon Man from New Glarus. Perhaps not quite to that level, but pretty spectacular beer here for my first taste indeed.

PanicButtonGuy (1) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2012 does not count
Appearance - Light and bright golden color. Great representation of the Pale Ale style. Aroma - Smells fantastic! Great American hop smell that I could enjoy for days. Taste - Total let down. Definitely a rogue flavor in there that I canít put my finger on. No malt sweetness at all. Really high on perceived bitterness. Not the typical bitterness one would expect in an APA. Palate - Extreme carbonation. Definite carb burn this go íround. Light body and really thin. Really dry and bitterness lingers way too long. I feel like I could almost scrape the bitterness off the back of my tongue. Overall - Everything was great until I put it in my mouth (thatís what she said)

Can shared by some dude at darkness. Yellow pour i think considering it is 2 am. Smells like an apa but tastes like an ipa.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2012
On draught at the Indeed Brewing Companyís taproom in Minneaolis, MN. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin rings and some spotty lacing. aroma of distinct 3-Cís hops, mostly Cascade, some mild caramel malt, and a touch of spice. Flavor is medium bodied, favors of mostly citrus hops with some lit hard fruit, caramel malt and a touch of sage. Finish is semi-dry, with a short lived grapefruit aftertaste followed by a dry earthy malt flavor.
