Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Regionally grown American pale malt is blended with rich European malt to produce a lighter bodied beer, bright in color, with a taut white head. 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.

12 oz can served chilled into a goblet.

Dy Tripper is a pale golden amber with a slightly hazy appearance. It has tight white head with good retention and some sticky lace.

Aroma is pleasantly hoppy with great citrus notes. It's more hoppy than most pale ales but maybe not quite as much as a good IPA.

Flavor is surprisingly bitter for a pale ale. It has initial sweetness but has a great bitter bite from middle to end. The hops are fresh and citrusy with a hint of grass.

Mouthfeel is medium light in body and nicely carbonated. Bitterness is more in line with an IPA but malts are that of a pale ale. This leads to a slightly out of balance pale ale but most hop heads won't mind.

Overall an excellent beer, whatever style you want to call it.

4.15/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a can sealed on 6/30/14 into an IPA glass and enjoyed over 25 minutes with and without pizza, salad, and wings.

The appearance is a rather hazy amber-cream that supports a thick cap of matching texture. Retention is good; thick sheets of lacing and stubborn islands on top make the head a part of the drinking experience deep into the glass.
Pine resin is powerful in the nose, accompanied by nice round fruit--honeydew, and papaya sprayed with lime. There's clover in there, too, dusted with pollen and sawdust. So much going on for an APA, but a bit imbalanced. With warming, it starts to smell more like yellow cake with blood-orange icing.
On the tongue, it starts almost toasty and smoky, then narrows down to a salted biscuit austerity before getting halfway through. Lemon zest pairs with the carbonation to open a late space for chewy hop oils to slide out from under pineapple and fade into a tart, dry finish. Higher temperature brings out too much tar, early and persistent in the flavor--so keep it cool and quaff unless you have barbecue or good fish to eat alongside.
In the mouth, it feels clean, rather juicy, and just nicely livened by the bubbles. Astringent on the tongue and hard palate; doesn't linger much anywhere else. With all those hops and possibilities for emergent flavor, I want it to hold on more...but then I remember I'm drinking a 5.4% APA and I simply reach for another smooth mouthful.
Eventually, I get beaten down by the bitterness of the aftertaste without food. But, it's a great match for eats that have any residual sugar or savory grill flavor. And on its own, it's still quite a creation--bursting with hops, layered with enough interesting flavor essences that I keep reaching for the glass. Although it wears a different label, I'd add this to my list of favorite session IPAs.
