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.

3.89/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

3.6/5  rDev -10.2%
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.
