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.

What a pretty pale ale... murky honey gold body stuffed from top to bottom with steady beading and capped off with a creamy, lasting finger of eggshell froth.

Citric hops translate nicely on the nose... some fresh biscuit malts, semi-sweet and semi-bitter. Still can't get over this head though...

Mmm... nice orange zest, grapefruit, toasty grains, a lasting fruity bitterness, dry grassy flavors... nice.

I could certainly see this one sneaking into my regular lineup.

A: Pours a moderately hazy orange-gold with three fingers of white head that fades into a thin cap with decent lacing.

S: Citrusy hops on the nose with notes of pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and apricots. There are some more subtle piney notes toward the finish. Smells quite nice.

T: The flavor is a bit more earthy with grapefruit, citrus rind, and resiny pine dominating. Finishes moderately bitter.

M: medium body and carbonation, this beer is a bit oily feeling, but avoids being watery. Could use a bit more carbonation.

O: A good pale ale overall, though I think it is more of a low abv IPA than a pale ale because it's hoppy as hell--more so than many IPA's I've had. It smells quite good, though I wish the flavors reflected the aromas. Still, quite enjoyable.

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.

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.

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.

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.
