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.

3.9/5  rDev -3%

Thanks to maximum12 for this one... he must know that I'm a sucker for canned pale ales. Half in the glass; the rest stays in the can for consumption. Half-murky, the color of the copper pipes in your basement, only a little dirtier and darker. A nice, creamy foam slowly settles on tap and leaves some impressive sheeting all along the glass as it transcends.

If the beer is half as good as the song... well, it'll be a doozy then. The aroma starts things off right, with a swift kick of pungent hops; lightly ashy and a bit herbal with some botanical-like citrus peel and deep grapefruit flesh wafting in the background somewhere. Leafy as well as fruity and even a bit juicy. Nice citric and spice mix, and good robustness for a mere pale ale.

The first sip stings with a much more abundant bitterness than the nose suggested; nearly tongue scraping and probably venturing into IPA levels of IBUs, but I'm okay with that. Herbaceous with lots of leaves topped with fresh, white pepper. Fresh and wet hops are colliding against all walls of my palate with each sip.

Citric notes are abundant as well, more so in a pith, peel, and bitter-inducing sense and not so much the "juicy sweet" sense as the nose may have previously led on with, but as I said, I don't have a problem with it. The bitterness isn't forcing me away, rather it's keeping things interesting. Understated malt, a touch of toast in the finish without much sweetness... in my opinion, that's how a pale ale/IPA is done.

Crisp, wet, and sparky finish; thin-medium bodied with tight, ample carbonation. Very surprised by this dark horse, here. Didn't see it coming at all. Listed as a pale ale, and while it may not be quite as drinkable or balanced as most pale ales (it's pushing the IPA boundaries), it's still tasty nonetheless, and even better because it's available in cans.

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.
