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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A slightly hazed radiant amber colored pale ale with a very generous, dense white foam on top and luscious lacing. The aroma offers purposeful citrus hops and doughy yeast bread. Nice. The flavor is similar with a quick bright bite of orange rind and thick spicy bread, lemon edges and a little coriander. There's a little hay grass and a touch of yeasty pine. Complex but generally a hop hitter of a pale ale. It's medium bodied with a tingly, refreshing carbonation but there's a bit of an aqueous undertone to the feel so it drinks pretty easily. Very pleasing if you like the extra bitter pale ale.

On tap at the brewery.

Look - Totally opaque, deep black color, limited head or lacing

Smell - roasted coffee and sweet brown sugar notes, smoky aroma

Taste - roasted coffee flavors, some hop bitterness (no trace of the brown sugar)

Feel - light to medium bodied, crisp carbonation, some lingering maltiness

Overall - excellent version of an American Black Ale

Served on tap at The Blue Door Pub in St. Paul and reviewed from notes.

A- Slightly murk in appearance with a light amber.

S- Subtle, delicate citrus hop nose.

T- Slight hoppy bite, very subtle hop spice.

M- Light feel yet fluffy finishes slightly dry.

O- This is a great session ale and a fantastic revival of the Minnesota pale as I get bored with Summit EPA. From the can artwork to the bottom of the pint, just a great ale. Cheers.

Haven't had the pleasure of drinking it out of a can, yet. Amber hued with some haze, looks the part. Pungent hops with grassy & weedy notes, just the hop profile I like. The malt base is light and the beer comes forward as aggressively hopped while it's really not all that high on IBUs.

Tastes old school in many ways --- without the insanely tropical hop profile everyone seems to be chasing these days and I am just fine with it. This is definitely one of my top 5 new beers of the year and my fridge will certainly see the cans on a semi regular basis.

At the taproom, a great place to have a beer and congregate with others.

Pours light golden yellow. Nice pale ale or ipa look with good carbonation.

Smells are crisp pine with supporting citrus. My favorite friends, hanging together as they often do. Some earthy dankness, fresh hop vibes here too.

Tastes are abrasively bright and bitter. A pale ale hop assault. Not a lot of juicy depth, more of a pithy attack. I love it, but I can see others finding it too much. But this review will not be considering others. Some of that earthy fresh hop character continues and is welcome. Lots of flavor for only 5.4%.

Mouthfeel is dry and biting, with some sticky resin, smackingly delicious. Palates beware.

Yes! Finally a MN IPA (pale ale my arse) that I'll be choosing over Furious. Under 10 bucks for a 6 pack of cans (dated) is awesome as well.

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.

Not sampled but rather fully drank and immensely enjoyed. Calling Day Tripper hoppy isn't really doing it justice. It's an absolute fracking hop bomb! Pale in appearance with head and stuff. Dank, resinous pine and citrus hops, and hops and hops. Mind blowing, pure RAW hops. We don't need no stinking malts. Boy do the hops carry into the flavour. I mean, my God, what are they thinking? Like chewing on a bloody hop pellet. Hop love, no! It's hop sex. Dirty hop sex. Yikes. Hops don't provide alcohol, so I guess without the malt this beer wouldn't be beer. So, I'm glad they added malt. Call me if you can actually taste it though. I can't find it. Oh yeah, it's bitter as well. A mean bitter, but it apologizes and buys you a Happy Meal after it slaps you around. Dry, clean and wicked hoppy. You want something else?

Appearance: Cloudy light gold with lots of bubbles. 1/4" of ivory colored foam. Fair amount of lacing.
Smell: Hop-along! Lots of lovely hops loaded with pine. Just like walking in a pine forest right after a rainfall. Can't wait to taste this beer!
Taste: Upfront piney hops, almost a woody flavor. A medium bitter finish. Very nice.
Mouth feel: Light mouthfeel. Very tingly, but not a lot of body.
Overall: This beer is all about the hops. The malt is only there to support the hops. Very nicely done. Would be an especially enjoyable beer for those who like hoppy brews.

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.

4.24/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.

3.73/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: brownish amber color. Light head of about half a finger on the pour and was present while drinking. Below average active carbonation in the glass while drinking.

Smell: The front is airy, floral hops. Tropical fruits mesh with with a slightly nutty malt body. Accents of caramel and toffee added by the malt as well. The hop tones have a bubblegum sweetness that is very inviting and refreshing.

Taste: Semi-sweet malt presence with some piney bitter hop tones picked up on the front. More of the lighter floral hop tones pick up in the body and toward the back end. Sticky, resinous malt wears on the palate throughout drinking and provides a full body. The finish is continuing bold malt and some medium bodied bitter hops.

Mouthfeel: Heavier on the mouthfeel then the aroma would lead you to believe. Thick malt layers the palate. Hops bite throughout.

Overall: A hoppy pale ale but definitely keeps itself in the realm of being a pale ale with a big malt presence. Takes a toll on the palate though, certainly not the easiest drinking pale in the business.

3.59/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 2.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a goblet.

A: Hazy, light amber color with one finger of white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass and prolific yeast particles hang suspended throughout the column.

S: Grapefruit is the dominant quality, although some biscuit is also detectable. Very clean, with plenty of volatile hops oils.

T: Begins dry, with bright mixed citrus hops aromatics and fairly soft and refined pale malt. Acidity is assertive, yet well-matched to the bright fruity qualities. The middle sees the emergence of herbaceous spice and restrained crystal or Belgian aromatic malt chewiness. Bitterness is strong for the style in the finish, with ale esters that linger on the palate.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly resinous and acidic on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This beer comes across as a dry-hopped Sierra Nevada pale ale might. Assertive but predictable, this APA is what West Coast-style IPAs were striving for some time in the past.

4.03/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance - A hazy orange / amber color. Strong pour yielded a 1/2 finger head which dissipated quickly. While drinking there was no lacing

Smell - Tangerine / Orange rind and slight pale malts.

Taste - This is a bit more hoppy and bitter than your run of the mill APA. Orange marmalade and pine. Light malt in the background. Finish is rather bitter

Mouthfeel - Medium Body / Medium Carbonation. Dry Finish

Overall - This is a tasty offering from Indeed but it is more like an IPA than an APA.

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: My cousin Sam
Price: N/A
Purchased: Received it on Nov. 4, 2013
Consumed: Nov. 5, 2013
Misc.: Canned on May 27, 2013

Poured a caramel orange hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Lots of sporadic spiderweb lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention as well.

Smelled a potent whiff of fresh hops up front. Initially reminded me of a Stone Ruination IPA or a Lagunitas IPA. Specifically got citrus hops (grapefruit, tangerine and some lemon), floral hops, buttery caramel malts, wet Cascade hops and resin hops. Much more like an IPA than a pale ale.

Tasted more like a pale ale than an IPA, albeit still bitter. Got buttery caramel malts, lemon grass, resin hops, earthy, grainy, honey wheat and bitter floral hops.

Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, bitter finish.

Not a bad beer and I’m grateful for the opportunity to try it. I’d definitely have it again.

12oz can into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to mnbearsfan for the extra.

A: Clear medium amber body with a bit of dark sediment and an inch of dense, creamy tan head that settles slowly and leaves nice lace. Quite good.

S: Balanced between sweet caramel malt and citrusy hops. Grapefruit and mango are prominent, with some herbal qualities as well. Very nice.

T: Follows the nose, with some additional tropical notes of pineapple and mango. Definitely on the sweet side, but in a nice vanilla-and-fruit kind of way. Moderate bitterness and a clean finish. Extremely tasty.

M: Smooth, soft medium body with ultra-fine carbonation. Great.

O: This was a really, really enjoyable APA. Enough hops to be interesting, enough balance to be thoroughly drinkable. This was my first Indeed beer, and I'll be sure to look for more the next time I'm in MN.

Cheers!

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.

4.16/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is hazy amber with a caramel tint. A finger of eggshell-colored, buttery head left a solid skim on the top and a thick ring around the edge.

Smell: It offers a nice dose of citrus and a little tropical fruit: grapefruit, tangerine, mango, and maybe a touch of pineapple. Underneath is a nice malt foundation, too: lightly toasted malts, caramel, and toffee. Pine resin and a touch of cattiness emerge late.

Taste: The bitterness is on the strong side for a pale ale and the flavors are very aggressive. It is relatively catty for a pale ale, too, but I like it. Tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, and orange peel. The malt base from the aroma is also present: lightly toasted malts, caramel, and a little toffee. The tail offers pine resin and catty pungency, which linger on the taste buds along with the lightly bitter bite.

Drinkability: This is a solid brew that offers a lot of flavor. Though not necessarily a “trip,” it is pretty aggressive for a pale ale.

Gotta thank Todd in bringing over this plus Surly offerings from Minneapolis this week while I'm semi-stranded in Indiana. Poured out of a 12oz can into a pint glass. No freshness date.

Pours a golden pale color with a little amount of frothy white head that, while not very large, sticks around for a surprisingly good long while. Carbonation is quite good and lots of bubbles make themselves present. Slightly sticky and bready looking. Very simple, but quite appealing.

The aroma is a cascade of citrus focused hops, providing lots of fruitiness and slight earthiness at the finish. Orange peel, lemon peel, grapefruit peel, and dried apricots and pine needles. All of the fruits do not smell juicy, but rather dry and zesty, to refreshing and breezy results. There's a cracked barley flavor that resmbles sugar cane and light toffee. Not super present or anything flavor-wise, but it's delightful.

The flavor is, on the other hand, a burst of fresh squeezed citrus fruits combined with a bready and earthy sweetness. After every sip, this tasted the equivalent of fresh squeezed grapefruit or orange juice, with the same soured and citrusy properties, as well as the same dry finish and fruity aftertaste. The malts provide notes of light honey and bready sweetness, with earthy golden cereal grains that provide a backbone for the initial zest. Very, very flavorful stuff, and with the well carbonated and creamy feel, this is fantastically refreshing.

As far as session pale ales go in this country, this is excellent stuff. Very zesty, flavorful, and the feel similar to fresh squeezed juice is astonishing, especially considering the number of IBUs on this. I want to see more beers like this to fill up my fridge. Highly recommended a try for those with wrecked palates from hoppier offerings at this point.

Poured from a can, a slightly hazy gold, decent head. Aroma is citrus fruit. Taste is grapefruit with a bit of pine and a mild bready malt, flavor profile is dominated by the hops but it is not overpowering, tastes more like a normal IPA than a pale. Does not overwhelm the palate and would be good for repeated consumption. Glad to see more craft beers showing up in cans, I hope this trend continues.

Overall, a very enjoyable session ale, but a bit overpriced, maybe it was just the store I went to but it was over $10.00 for a six pack. Would buy again if at a lower price point. I liked it enough that I will try others by Indeed.

12 oz. can.

Mostly clear medium copper body. Nice finger of dense, whipped, light beige head. Good lacing and retention. Toffee, sugary fruits, and toasted malts. Piny, orange-ish, slightly grassy hop aromas.

Toasted malts up front. Hop bitterness picks up quickly, though. Orange marmalade, pine, and grassy, spicy hop flavors dominate. Toffeeish malt fills in and provides a nice, mildly sweet backbone. Good balance with a very tasty hop profile. Dryish finish. Peppery, bitter hops linger. Medium bodied with a slightly slick feel. Very drinkable and appetizing APA. Impressed.

Big thanks to Cyclone8 for sending this one down! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a Westbrook pint glass.

A: Pours a copper color with some hints of orange; hazy, with some hop material floaters in suspension. A thin, dense off-white head and not a lot of visible carbonation.

S: Citrus and some grassy hops, malt sweetness and a bit of pine resin bitter.

T: Starts with bright citrus (orange and grapefruit) flavors and more significant malt presence than expected for style. Resin, floral and grass hops also show up, and the hop flavors culminate in significantly more bitterness than expected for an APA, with bitter pine and grapefruit rind lasting after the swallow.

M: Medium to full-bodied for style, somewhat below average carbonation sensation. More alcohol heat than expected for style, although far from hot.

O: A tasty IPA in a can, but this one seems like it's continuing the trend of making an IPA, labeling it a Pale Ale and expecting people to love it. Still, it's a good beer. As a side note - the side of the can says 45 IBU, but it really seems higher than that on the tongue. Scores reflect some penalty for what I consider to be style issues.

Pours a clearish orange color with a half finger of white head

Smell has hints of orange, spice, gingerbread??(I assume from malt), grapefruit and light pine

Taste is very hop forward, spicy citrus, bittering pine and maybe even bit to much for my liking of a APA, flavor of biting into a lime, light bready malt in the back

Mouthfeel is light to medium with a good amount of carbonation, very dry in the end

Well I would certainly grab this from time to time if available in WI, I can not get in across the border where I buy my MN beer, must be Twin Cities only at this point.... But this is much more session IPA then APA. Much more bitter and drying then I would think of most APAs.

Marked May 17 canning date.
Quite fresh and pleasing hop aroma with a sweet fruit and citrus aroma.
Nice off-white fairly dense head caps a cloudy gold/orange amber.
Enjoyable mouthful of hoppy goodness. Not as sweet or fruity as the aroma. Prominent bitterenss fills the mouth from a pretty early start to the rather long finish. Firm malt support.
I've used Summit hops in homebrewing and sometimes they can give of a vegetal or garlic taste and I do pick that up here. It's not too strong, but for me it is a bit distracting.
Very soft mouthfeel.
Solid. Can't say I'd recommend, but certainly try one if interested or offered.

T - Very dry piney bitterness, some light citrus fruit flavors come through after the initial bite. The dry, bitter, and sweet fruit aftertaste leave my mouth watering a bit. A little lacking in depth

M - Incredibly refreshing/drinkable. Medium/lighter bodied with decent carbonation.
