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 Tripper is a goldenrod libation when backlit and takes on the color of apricot when not. Moderate haze permeates the body with a couple floaties because I got a little overzealous on the pour. A soapy white head rises to a finger, falls slowly to a cap and leaves behind some humpbacked lacing on its way down.

The nose on this beer is flat out glorious. Big notes of perfectly ripe pineapple are vibrant up front. Apricot and papaya follow closely behind. A soft green herbalness runs the periphery and pine brings up the rear. Those tropical fruits dominate and I'm digging it. A crackery malt base lays a welcomed foundation and just enough sugar.

Damn, this is a delicious beer! It's not quite as vibrant as the nose but it's not far off and still brighter than 95% of pales on the market. Big ripe pineapple notes, again, kick it off. Sweet papaya and apricot notes hit in the middle before pine combines with pineapple on the swallow. Crackery malt again adds the base. Jammy notes pop up here and there. This beer is like crack to me.

The body weighs in at medium with a velvety luxuriousness. Carbonation runs right in the middle of the spectrum. It's easy drinking and smooth with a soft bitterness that lingers long after each drink. A touch of residual sweetness balances it well and keeps it easy drinking. This beer goes down dangerously fast.

Day Tripper is one of my favorite pale ales on the planet. I honestly can't get enough of this beer. It's juicy, pine-y, a little bitter, and ridiculously drinkable. I would love to see this available around Chicagoland but in the time being I will stick to Daisy Cutter.
