On draught at the Indeed Brewing Company’s 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-C’s 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.
Minneapolis, MN - Cuzzy’s Bar & Grille - on tap - breakfast before a Twins game, Slight haze to the medium golden pour, soft,off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Slight tropical hint to the aroma, pick up some pineapple along with the light spruce. Decent pale ale flavor, some minty spiciness, a bit of light citrus bitterness, hints of biscuit-like maltiness. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. MavDunk (103) - - MAY 14, 2017

Nice hoppy pale. Tall can. Clear orange with thin white head. Aroma and flavor are orange peel/grapefruit, spicy hops and a touch of floral hops. Pretty well balanced with sweetish earthy caramel malt. Moderate bitterness. balloonbuffoon (269) - - APR 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2017 Draft in a chalice glass. Light copper in color, resin and citrus fruit aroma. Palate is medium in body and is abrasive. This is not a balanced APA. More like an American IPA, and a mediocre one if considered as such. This beer is not for me. Edited comments, not an actual review update. Ratman197 (14680) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2017

Clear, pale pour. Thin and rapidly disappearing head. Nose is grassy with a touch of malt. Flavor is lemon and grass first, then a touch of malt sweetness. tinja64 (2) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 28, 2017 does not count
Great pale ale! Dangerously drinkable... always a nice go to at the he end of the day. Light hoppy flavor with citrus tones on the back end. Comparable to the ballast point grunion. drpimento (3572) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Pretty good beer although I would say that the hoppy bitterness is more similar to an IPA. Flavor’s also quite dry. Aroma is hoppy and perfumy with a little bit of malt. Ronritter (659) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2016

From a can at Minneapolis Marriott City Center. Pours dark gold (or light amber), clear, with a fine white head. Aroma is predominantly grapefruit, as mentioned on the can. Body is medium, sticky and astringent, with average carbonation. Taste has marked bitterness, practically no sweetness. The bitterness sticks around in the finish as well.
