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.

Very fresh and good can obtained by John. Citrus hop aroma, yet well tamed. Cloudy orange and lacey. A big IBU and yet a very good ornage, tangerine, grapefruit taste and drinkability. A good examle of a pale that used to be called an IPA(if not a DIPA by some) .Recommended.

Review #2900
Can holder dated 5-08 on the six pack.

Hazy brassy orange body, sticky thick foam that leaves behind plenty of lacing in the glass, so much so it resembles a snow globe. Lasting coverage.

Hoppy grassy aroma, dank and a little funky from the fresh hops, bitter dandelion greens and pale malt. Flavors of pale malt and bitter green hoppiness, it has a nice bite to it. Light bodied and flavorful. Biscuit aftertaste with some dry greenery intermingled.

This beer reminded me a bit of a ubiquitous local favorite, Daisy Cutter.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with orange highlights. It had a one-finger head of off-white foam that left thin rings of lace.

S - It smelled of citrus and grapefruit with some toasty notes.

T - It tasted of citrus, grapefruit, caramel and toast. A nice bitterness adds just enough punch.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a really good canned APA. My second brew from Indeed was quite tasty.

Can from eawolff99. Served in a Chicago Craft Beer Week pint glass. Six-pack dated 10/08/12.

A - Pours with a half-finger of white foam that settles to a solid cap. Transparent golden body with a few stray bubbles making their way to the top.

S - Aroma is pretty excellent, with a melange of tropical fruits, juicy citrus, dank, and a hint of onion. Nice sugary malt backdrop that balances but doesn't supersede the hoppy goodness.

T - Taste is also pretty nice, with a mix of pine and zesty citrus, icing sugar malt, and a hint of tropical fruits. Bitterness is moderate and surprisingly intense for a pale ale, but it never gets fatiguing. Lots of flavor for only 5.4%.

M - Carbonation is too high for my tastes, even after letting the beer settle for a bit. Super resinous and oily texture, medium body, and not as dry as I'd like.

D - Aside from the middling feel, this stuff is great. I put down a 12oz can in record time, and I'm looking forward to working me way through the rest of the six-pack. Indeed Brewing appears to be legit. (Upon further research, the head brewer produced a number of hoppy pale ales at Town Hall. This doesn't surprise me at all).

Beautiful glittering golden hue, slightly hazed, under a full flush of white foam.

Aroma: fresh, zesty, brimming with hops, bubbling over with citrus and pine, a vibrant, pithy nose, plumb with lemon and grapefruit.

Taste: Here's where it's getting good. We start with a slap of hops and a tickle of malt, and it never, ever quits. A fierce blast that tempers some in time, with malt succulent, soft, and supple, keeping the ground level, delivering a modicum of sweetness, providing a minimum of balance. Good and hoppy this one (though not out of bounds), and a remarkable drinker. Certainly a sessioner, with the continuing reward of hoppy goodness on the tongue.

Medium bodied, with a long, hoppy finish. The bitterness is high, and ever-present, and coupled with the malt flavor, it provide deliciousness. This is such an excellent pale ale, I'm finding it almost perfect. There's not a thing lacking, not a bit wrong, nothing to dishonor this ale. Like I said, these guys will have a hit on their hands.

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.

C+

Picked up a can at Four Firkins and poured it into a Hennepin goblet. Damn this is tasty. The aroma has a huge, juicy hit off the bat with lighter toasted, resinous perfume. The flavor follows with more of the juicy citrus punch. There are hints of pine, light pepper, and red licorice, with a dry grapefruit finish. The body is a touch lighter than a lot of pale ales, but it's by no mean watery. It's drinkable, yet very rich in flavor. This is a hell of a pale ale. It reminds me of my favorite IPAs like Blind Pig, Southern Tier 2X IPA Find some.

DAY TRIPPAAA

Beige head. Rock solid lace. Color is a clear copper gold.

Taste profile is in your face goodness. A big citrus burst up front. Very tropical. Lots of grapefruit. Maybe a hint of pineapple. Nice malt backbone to even things out a bit. A little bready malts. Kind of reminds me of a malt profile in an English ale for some reason.

Bitter with a nice body. Very smooth. Ends a little sticky.

Overall, this is a fantastic beer. I am happy to have this in the TC. Very flavorful and very drinkable. BAM! Get some of this!

Shared by Steve. I do love me some Minnesota. Need to get up there more often. Any who...the beer looks like a light hoppy beer. Seriously, who cares. That's not a question. Hoppy and light. Really tasty. Light in body. Mild bitterness. Good citrus quality in both the nose and flavor. Hooray beer. Nice cans baby.

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
