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.

12oz can, no date

malty and hoppy, malty and hoppy. very bready, with a blast of dank pine. this is a beer i would have hated when i was younger. bitter, but not overly so, mostly a lingering bitter aftertaste.

the next time i go fishing, this needs to be in my cooler

Poured from a 12oz can into an oversized wineglass. Canned on 02/18/13 on the bottom of the can. SIngle purchased by my brother Greg at a local Minneapolis bottle shop for $1.99.

A: Clean nearly clear bright amber with 2-finger off-white big-bubbled head with good retention and clumpy lines of lacing.

S: Big hoppy aroma with grapefruit and pine, a little bit of resin, and a nice floral note to boot. The maltiness is also pretty characterful with crackery, bready aromas. Hops win out but it's reasonably close.

T: The flavor is a great reflection of the aroma with grapefruit and pine leading the way with more resiny bitterness than in the aroma and a moderate floral note as well. The malt component is bready, slightly sweet caramel, and a light crackery component. The hops and malt are worked together very well. This beer was the best one I tried on my week off, up against the entire Odell lineup and Surly Abrasive Ale.

M: THe body is medium with moderate carbonation. No astringency.

O: Indeed has hit a home run with Daytripper - it hits all the hops and malt notes with great balance and an intensity I don't find in a lot of APAs. Great job by Indeed and a must-try.

I've had alot of beer over about 3 decades and have had many favorites, that are still around - but the past 2 years or so, this is consistently my favorite and 'go to' beer. Very consistent taste and flavor (not to be assumed in a small brewery). On tap and in can are reasonably similar - I usually prefer the former but not necessarily so with Day Tripper. What a blend of hops, flavor and mild sourness. Go guys - Indeed Day Tripper is a winner!

A- coppery, honey-like, a bit hazy, nice creamy head, falls back into beer and leaves a good amount of lace

S- dominated by citrus, slight spice

T- bitter citrus, like grapefruit, light crisp malt finish

M- not chewy, but the citrus taste lingers on pleasantly

This is one of those great "all-arounder" beers, this will be nice to drink with fish or spicy food, or just to kick back. Also seems like you could drink it under any situation.
