Indeed Shenanigans Summer Ale
Golden with big fluffy head. Aroma - wheaty malt and a touch of lemon. Taste - wheaty and a bit of citrus and spice. Dry and refreshing. A typical summer ale. Non-offensive but nothing great. Good for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Indeed Derailed #2 - Mexican Honey Imperial Lager
From a can. Golden pour. Sweet candied citrus and slightly boozy corn / bready base. Honey is apparent, but you have to know it’s there to really pick it out. Not much a fan of this one.

Indeed Let it Ride IPA
From a can. Ripe tropical fruits over acerbic pine and herbal notes; just a touch of biscuit malts comes through toward the finish. There’s a hint of a midwest IPA in here -- the malt bill is definitely there, and it’s darker in color -- but the sharp bitterness is more reminiscent of the pacific NW. Good!

Indeed Dandy Lager
Hazy pale, bubbly head. Has a green hop nose with a hint of heavier pale malts. Similar palate, lots of bitterness and the malts come on really thick. Wouldn’t be able to have too much of this.

Indeed Wooden Soul #6: Wood-Aged Red Ale
On tap at the Red Cow North Loop, Minneapolis. Reddish amber colour. Quite a pleasant acidity in this one, not mouth puckeringly sour. Red fruit, hints of raspberry, also some warming oaky red wine notes. Very nice.

Can. Amber in colour with medium carbonation and a few floaties. Aromas are of red grapefruit, pomelo, heavy pale malt, and black pepper. Flavors are of raw green hop, vague citrus, cereal grains and a bit of caramel. Medium bodied and fairly bitter. A bit malt forward for my taste, but decent overall.

Indeed Shenanigans Summer Ale
Draft on tap at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a honey yellow hue with some decent haziness that dulls the body. Frothy offwhite head is sizable, creamy, and retains as a nice enough layer with solid lacing around. Aromas are a touch grassy, wheaty malts are bready, with a subtle honey sweetness, mellow fruit, some dryness and earthy appeal. Initial is lighter bodied overall, some grassy earth bitterness and mellow yeastiness meets flaked wheat, a cleaner appeal as the fruity appeal lends itself to a more lemony appeal. Dry yet not bitter really, fresh and a bit grainy with some lemon, gentle sweetness. Cleaner backend with lingering grass clippings, subtle florals and yeastiness. Solid summer wheat.

Indeed Let It Roll IPA
Draft on tap at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a darker deep carmelized blood red hue. A subtle haziness but nearly transparent with that deep carmelized reddish glow throughout. Frothy whitish head is sizable but dies to a thicker ringer quick enough. Aromas are bitter, carmelized and toasty. Green and floral hops, some citric jabs quickly giving a carmelized and biscuity appeal beneath. Initial offers a fuller caramel driven body. Red malts, firm piney and floral bitterness is the supporter with the fruity appeal fading quickly. Fuller bodied, a bit brooding, and lacking not only a signature fresh or fruity hop appeal, but offering far too much body overall. Meh. Ok. Not my type of IPA.

Indeed Derailed #16 - Lucy
Draft on tap at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a pale dulled straw yellow hue, a decent haziness dulls it a bit with a frothy whitish head atop that dissipates quickly. Mellow lacing as a ringer. Aromas are a bit dry, bitter floral hops and subtle melon, some menthol appeal meet some earthiness, lactic twang, cereal malts. Initial is lighter bodied, more bitter and subtle grapefruit appeal. Green, floral bitterness, subtle soap meet some ok but perhaps a bit mellow lactic twang. This grows on me as a more squeaky bitter backend seems to be a bit more vibrant, the hop elements working a bit better with the smaller lactic acidic pop. A bit rustic or messy grain quality but overall this drinks nice enough overall once I get into it.

First beer of St Patty’s Day -- on tap. A little sweet, but unbeknownst to me, it was an 8% beer so it makes sense. Otherwise a very nice beer.

Indeed Dandy Lager
12 oz can from a 12 can mix pack given to me by my brother in law. The pour is a light haze golden with a small white head. The aroma is hay along with cereal grain. The taste is cereal, slight sweet malt along with a bit of a grass and perhaps corn. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft carbonation and a mineral cereal grain finish. Had a Kolsch type taste, nice.

Indeed Derailed #14 - Bock
Ruby edged, mahogany color, thin tan ring fades quickly. Sulfur and ironlike minerality in the aroma. Oven fresh cinnamon bread, caramel, biscuit malts; warm, inviting, composed. Moments of red currant or cherry frame it nicely. The flavor hits the right balance of crispness and savory malt texture, mingling plum, raisin and caramel with a brisk, dry leaf bitterness that clips the backend. A touch of icy, fruity sugar flashes briefly before the simple, baked bread and caramel finish. All around solid American example; a laudable effort.

Indeed Wooden Soul #6: Wood-Aged Red Ale - Wine Grapes
At Winterfest, 2016. This was one of the best beers of the festival. This had pinot noir grapes. Lots of grape in the flavor. Aroma has yeast, some grape juice. Flavor is moderately sour, like the base beer, with the addition of grape giving this a purple color. Very good.

Indeed Wooden Soul #1 - Saison with Brett
Tap at the source with commonshawn on March Madness Eve. This one is #850...feeling pretty proud right now. 12 oz tulip pour. Hazy, cloudy deep orange/golden. Head is minimal but lacing looks promising. Aroma is in the vein of Belgian sours which I attribute to the Brett. Significant funk. Taste brings the funk as well with a heavy dose of fruits. Subtle but noticeable peppery and herb characteristics. Sour notes are not overpowering and actually pretty quick to dissipate in the finish. Surprised at this one’s drinkability. Overall not bad.

Indeed Let It Roll IPA
Tap at brewery with commonmac on March madness eve. Light copper with medium short lasting white head and good lacing. Grapefruit nose. Very sharp initial taste, then gives way a piney citrus bitterness. Very fresh, pungent, and nice bite on finish. Strong but fresh bitterness. Starts to wear on you after a bit, though. A crisp beer that could fit many occasions.

Indeed Let it Ride IPA
Can. Dark for an IPA--scarlet/orange with a fair amount of haze and a tight tan head. Vibrant aroma is packed with pine needles and grapefruit pith, backed up by bread crust. Same deal in the flavor: pine and pith lead, accented by some mid-palate floral notes, all atop a layer of caramel and toasted bread rolls. Hop-laden, balanced finish. Really nice job.
