Style | ABV
American Pale Ale (APA) |  5.40% ABV

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.

45 IBU

3.6/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very hazy orange color with some visible effervescence quickly escaping the bottom of the glass and ascending towards a one finger off-white frothy head.

Aroma: A fair amount of earthy/citrusy hops with a touch of grapefruit. Almost a rye malt thing going on as well with a bit of pepper in the nose.

Taste: Nice hop bite up front with a bit of pineapple flavor and some earthy/piney character. The initial bitterness increases slightly and then gets washed away in the second half. The 45 IBUs listed on the can sound about right. Like in the aroma there is a bit of white pepper in the flavor. Pretty light on the malt which makes this a hop forward Pale Ale (no problem there). During the finish there is a moment where I really get the west coast flavor that they were going for but it doesn't last nearly long enough. At 5.4% ABV it is just a little watery but definitely within the realm of where it should be style wise.

Mouthfeel: Just under medium in body with smooth carbonation but a bit of a rough feel due to the peppery flavor. Average drinkability and easily sessionable if Pale Ales are your thing.

Final Thoughts: A decent beer from a relatively new brewery on the scene, Day Tripper delivers on bitterness and a mix of flavors that have moments of succulence. I'd be interested to try Indeed's version of a West Coast IPA. Would I drink it again? No, cool artwork on the can though.

4.09/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Small half-finger of white foam that fade somewhat quick. Hazy golden color.

S: Light dankness that has a candied mango, tangerine type aroma and slight onion in the background. Very sweet fruity aroma with a sturdy caramel backbone and maybe some breadiness. Very pleasing.

T: Upfront a burned kind of breadiness. Then fades into a caramel and fruity citrus appears. Then some pine appears and fade. A little different, nice.

M: Nice carbonation, medium body.

O: Really nice pale ale, glad to have tried this one. I would say this was a nice gateway beer into Indeed Brewing.

Serving type: can
