4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from brewery, opened same day. Clear copper pour, good lacing. Aroma is a blend of citrus hops and a bit of banana. Flavor is in the vein of Sierra Nevada but with a great fresh hop character, as advertised. Nothing wild here, just a very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap and in bottle today. From bottle dated 9/18, pours a clear pale yellow/gold with a large white head. Aroma of soapy hop pine, cereal malt, and orange peel. Malt in the taste is very bready with grains, some mild citrus, and spicy pine hops throughout. I really like the malt and the hops balance here with the stout malt, I though this would a lot heavier, but this is light and very drinkable.

Bottle sample. Medium clear orange colored pour, forthy head and a nice crisp bitter hop aroma. Flavor is juicy bitter grapefruit and slightly herbal on the aftertaste. Very nice!

Sample at ABR. Decent IPA. Hops are more bitter than flavorful. Aroma is pretty muted.

Indeed Fresh Hop: Approximately 1 oz. pour on tap at the Autumn Brew Review in Minneapolis on 9-15-12. My first beer from Indeed and the first beer I tried at the festival. Pours gold. Aroma and flavor feature citrus (especially grapefruit), apricot, white grape juice, and pine. Dry taste. Enjoyable but not outstanding overall. 7/3/7/3/13
