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.

If this is an APA then I'm Cookie Monster. This beer is hop heavy for any style and waaay too much for a pale ale.

Light copper color, mostly clear. Soapy head, nice lacing

Aroma is loaded with hops. Just shy of resin. Pine. Some citrus. Rustic vine. No malt to speak of

Flavor. Flavor? Not much underneath the massive hop bite. Pine and bitter orange peel.

This beer has far too much bite for its own good. It hides the flavor, but maybe that is the point.
To style this beer fails. Overall, it's a hop bomb with no balance

12 fl oz aluminum can served into a Dick's Last Resort hefeweissbier glass in me sister's gaff in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Reviewed live. Acquired at the Four Firkins as part of a mixed sixer. Expectations are above average given its current ratings. 5.4% ABV confirmed.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger head of beige colour, nice thickness, nice cream, and good retention. Body colour is a transparent pale copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Fresh citrus ester hops, pine hops, clean pale malts, and some dry hop bitterness. A mild strength aroma. No yeast or alcohol is detectable.

T: Floral and grassy hops, some pine, citrus, and hop bitterness. Clean pale malt foundation. No yeast or alcohol comes through. Pretty simple. Decently balanced. I like it.

Mf: Smooth but slightly coarse on the climax, wet, well carbonated, and of good thickness. Suits the flavours decently. Even a bit buttery.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. That said, it's a bit mundane for the style. I wouldn't get it again, but I look forward to trying more beers from this brewery. A pedestrian but pleasant pale ale.

Tasted 22 November 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a medium orangey amber, not exactly pale, but pale-ish. Clear all the way through, which lets me see the big column of bubbles rushing up. One finger of off-white head, decent retention and lacing.

Smell is smooth and hoppy. Hops are really resinous, a bit of pine, and a touch floral. Supportive malts, providing a great base. Nothing sticks out, no sharp edges, just a really nice hoppy pale ale.

Taste is the low point. Mostly bland, with a hit of bitter topped with spice. Quite spicy, actually. I'm not sure exactly what else I want from it, but it's not doing it for me. Malts feel thin, just not enough. Needs more flavor other than the soft bitter.

Mouthfeel is fine. Medium-light body, enough carbonation. No problems, no standout.

This is the least impressive of Indeed's beers that I've had, but it's still pretty good. A smooth hoppy pale ale, nicely balanced and not overly bitter. Needs more flavor, IMO.

On tap at the Blue Door. Beatles on the audio system. Bluicy in hand. Day off of work and I'm set. Mmm, not really loving this. I really want to, but I don't quite get it. Could there be such a thing as hops that are too exposed?

Appearance is very nice with a hazy golden hue.

Aroma is also nice with juicy, fruity character.

Hop freakin' forward! Flavor is bitter and raw. Dry dank, and a bit harsh, with a somewhat medicinal tone. Wow, there is a reason why people don't chew hop cones for fun. I get papaya, tobacco and nasturtium.

Mouthfeel is watery and light, but somehow sticky.

I love hops. I love big IPA's. This one is unbalanced and not quite working. Maybe this is revolutionary and riding the fresh hop wave? I prefer Brau Bros Hopsession for a low alcohol, hop forward beer. Just not getting this one. Damn, and I really wanted to.
