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.

the 100th review of daytripper.
12oz can with extremely psychedelic artwork.
Pours a dark yellow orange, looks like an IPA. Sticky, semi-resinous lacing.
Smells of citrus & lemon hops.
Tastes extremely citrusy, hints of grapefruit, & pine. Extremely heady hops, very bitter with a slight malt backbone.
Light body - highly drinkable at 5.5%
Will buy again, love drinking these from the can. The west coast influence is obviously evident.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Produced a 1.5 finger, white head. Left a little lacing. The beer color is a hazy, honey color.

The aroma is of citrus, hops, and bread.

The taste is similar, but with some light sweetness, and a little bit of piney hops. Medium mouth-feel, and carbonation.

Excellent APA! Easy drinking. Perfect hop balance for the style. One of my favorite local brews.

3.6/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very hazy orange color with some visible effervescence quickly escaping the bottom of the glass and ascending towards a one finger off-white frothy head.

Aroma: A fair amount of earthy/citrusy hops with a touch of grapefruit. Almost a rye malt thing going on as well with a bit of pepper in the nose.

Taste: Nice hop bite up front with a bit of pineapple flavor and some earthy/piney character. The initial bitterness increases slightly and then gets washed away in the second half. The 45 IBUs listed on the can sound about right. Like in the aroma there is a bit of white pepper in the flavor. Pretty light on the malt which makes this a hop forward Pale Ale (no problem there). During the finish there is a moment where I really get the west coast flavor that they were going for but it doesn't last nearly long enough. At 5.4% ABV it is just a little watery but definitely within the realm of where it should be style wise.

Mouthfeel: Just under medium in body with smooth carbonation but a bit of a rough feel due to the peppery flavor. Average drinkability and easily sessionable if Pale Ales are your thing.

Final Thoughts: A decent beer from a relatively new brewery on the scene, Day Tripper delivers on bitterness and a mix of flavors that have moments of succulence. I'd be interested to try Indeed's version of a West Coast IPA. Would I drink it again? No, cool artwork on the can though.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Beer exits the can an orange-amber color with a decent cap of foam above which left modest lacing. The aroma is fairly strong. Grapefruit mixes with a tinge of pine. The hops start and finish the experience. Malt does penetrate through during the center. Caramel and biscuit flavors provide some balance, but I would like to see the components meld together a little more smoothly. Overall a nice brew.

12oz can from a phenomenal BA poured into my virgin Hill Farmstead tulip (from the same BA) -

A: Pours a darker gold than I expected; chill-hazed dark orange with a smallish white head and decent lacing.

S: Pretty hoppy aroma; pungent tropical fruit bowl with undertones of citrus, dank orange and grapefruit...hints of pine and an herbal component as well. Crisp, crackery biscuit malt underneath that.

T: More of a crisp, smooth malt taste with piney, herbal hoppiness. Grapefruit, blood orange...and dank. Semi-dry finish.

MF: Standard fare for an APA, appropriately bodied with moderate carbonation; not distracting or too thin.

O: A pretty drinkable APA with a very nice nose IMO. Would prefer more hoppiness on the palate but its not an IPA - I know that. Good beer.

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!

12oz can served in a snifter

A- pours a golden amber/ copper color. Head is a finger and a half with a slight of white tint.

S- floral notes followed by earthy and grassy pine. Slight touch of sweet malt

T- Carmel malt and earthy hops. Very well done on the hop profile for being on the grassy /earthy side

M- medium body with a medium/high carbonation. Coats the mouth and has a smooth very slight bitter finish.

O- first beer I've tried from indeed. Very well done. It's a change up from those big citrus fruity hop bombs. Would like to try out more from indeed.
