BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Indeed Brewing Company
Minnesota, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

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.

If this is an APA then I'm Cookie Monster. This beer is hop heavy for any style and waaay too much for a pale ale.

Light copper color, mostly clear. Soapy head, nice lacing

Aroma is loaded with hops. Just shy of resin. Pine. Some citrus. Rustic vine. No malt to speak of

Flavor. Flavor? Not much underneath the massive hop bite. Pine and bitter orange peel.

This beer has far too much bite for its own good. It hides the flavor, but maybe that is the point.
To style this beer fails. Overall, it's a hop bomb with no balance

12 fl oz aluminum can served into a Dick's Last Resort hefeweissbier glass in me sister's gaff in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Reviewed live. Acquired at the Four Firkins as part of a mixed sixer. Expectations are above average given its current ratings. 5.4% ABV confirmed.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger head of beige colour, nice thickness, nice cream, and good retention. Body colour is a transparent pale copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Fresh citrus ester hops, pine hops, clean pale malts, and some dry hop bitterness. A mild strength aroma. No yeast or alcohol is detectable.

T: Floral and grassy hops, some pine, citrus, and hop bitterness. Clean pale malt foundation. No yeast or alcohol comes through. Pretty simple. Decently balanced. I like it.

Mf: Smooth but slightly coarse on the climax, wet, well carbonated, and of good thickness. Suits the flavours decently. Even a bit buttery.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. That said, it's a bit mundane for the style. I wouldn't get it again, but I look forward to trying more beers from this brewery. A pedestrian but pleasant pale ale.

C+

Pale semi-cloudy yellow like an American Pale Wheat Ale.
Going in blind, I thought this tasted like a watery "session IPA". Sort of bland.
Mouth-feel was decent. Just nothing here to get excited about.
