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.

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.

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.

12 oz. can, no date stamp as far as I can tell.

A: Very hazy, dull golden body. Thin head but retention is excellent. Great looking Pale Ale.

S: Pretty nice hop aroma for a pale ale. Citrus and lemon notes.

T: Delicious hop flavor. Can says "West Coast inspired" and I won't argue with that. Decently balanced. Dry finish.

M: Medium-bodied, a little sticky. Easy to drink. Good levels of carbonation.

O: Very nice beer, and I love small breweries that can.

A - copper amber hue with thin white head, decent retention, slightly opaque.

S - I get a lot of spicy scent and a little floral.

T - lots of spice, lots of bitterness, floral taste and a little piney. In my opinion doesn't work super well together for a pale, but not bad.

M - thin but a bit smooth. Well carbonated.

O - for someone who likes a spicy pale ale with a lot of bitterness. To me it's not what I would look for with this style but it's very unique.

Haven't had the pleasure of drinking it out of a can, yet. Amber hued with some haze, looks the part. Pungent hops with grassy & weedy notes, just the hop profile I like. The malt base is light and the beer comes forward as aggressively hopped while it's really not all that high on IBUs.

Tastes old school in many ways --- without the insanely tropical hop profile everyone seems to be chasing these days and I am just fine with it. This is definitely one of my top 5 new beers of the year and my fridge will certainly see the cans on a semi regular basis.

Pours a gold color with a one finger head of soft looking foam that is pale sand colored.

The nose is filled with hops offering up piney and citrusy notes. Grapefruit, orange, lemon.

The taste is almost pure hops. Mild malty backbone to give the hops some sweetness. Big hoppy bite with more citrus than the nose. A bit of onion from the hops, but not a lot. Getting mostly grapefruit, especially at the end. More IPA than pale ale.

Crisp, bitter and smooth. Lighter end of medium body, soft carbonation.

A west coast pale ale that I am having trouble separating from a west coast IPA. So hoppy and good, who cares. Easily the hoppiest pale ale I've had. Terrific beer from a terrific local brewery.

Pours a hazy orange marmalade color with a two finger off white head with good retention and a lot of lacing. The aroma has grapefruit, citrus zest, tangerines, and pine.

There is plenty of grapefruit and citrus zest in the flavor, along with pine, grapefruit pith, and little to no malt. Wow. Nice bitterness for this beer, but it isn't overwhelmingly bitter. Just a lot of nice citrus and pine flavor.

Medium bodied, resinous, with average carbonation and long bitter finish. This is a nice bitter beer, that doesn't go to far with the bitterness, but goes right to the edge. A very nice beer.

the beer pours a straw yellow with almost no head. the nose is sweet with a big punch of citrus to the face. the taste is juicy, dripping, hoppy bitterness that is reminiscent of sucking on a grapefruit rind. The mouhfeel incrediby bitter with relatively little sweetness as a buffer. it's definitely a citrus (grapefruit) forward IPA that has guts for a canned IPA. I'd definitely try this beet in the future.
