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.

12 ounce can courtesy of Hoff43. Thanks! Indeed Day Tripper Pale Ale. Clear orange, large foamy tan head, decent retention. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus hops. The taste is caramel malt, toast, citrus hops. Medium bodies, moderate lingering bitterness.

12oz can. Light amber pour with a slightly tan head that fades to a nice ring around the glass. Earthy citrus with some light resin, fairly bitter, with a moderate+ carbonation, moderate body, becomes dry with more pine and a fairly grainy malt character as things finish up.

Steve_0 (3346) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2015
On cask at the brewery - lemon drop dry-hopping. Pour is clear golden-orange with a big white head and great lacing. Big lemony aroma - pineapple, oranges, mango, biscuit malt, straw and grapefruit. Taste is grassy, herbal hoppy, lemons, cracker malt, light pineapple, and candied fruits with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Solid IPA.

GJF (1365) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 15, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Hazy gold pour, white head with lots of nice lacing. It’s a good, clean pale ale with a hop bite at the end. Kind of classic to the style. Glad to see this place in our old neighborhood.

Can shared by a friend. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt, tropical fruit and earthy hop. Malty flavor with tropical fruit accents before a grassy hop finish.

Bulk_Carrier (2711) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - MAR 12, 2015
This was on tap and poured into a mug. The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden orange to amber color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head that dissipated within about thirty seconds. A light stringy lacing settles around the glass. The smell had a sweet and lightly spiced semi-peppery aroma running under a sweet maltiness. The taste pretty much copied the smell and carried a slight spice into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and good for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a pretty nice APA that I would definitely have again.

tmoreau (2933) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Shared 12 oz. cans, poured to snifters showing a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a presentable head of soft white foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose started with some basement dankness, then earthiness & pulp, with maybe a bit of citrus as orange. Light to medium bodied, the taste provided a very lingering, earthy, rind-like, and dry hop bitterness propelled by lively carbonation. Not enough mellowing malt to take the edge off.
