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.

Not sampled but rather fully drank and immensely enjoyed. Calling Day Tripper hoppy isn't really doing it justice. It's an absolute fracking hop bomb! Pale in appearance with head and stuff. Dank, resinous pine and citrus hops, and hops and hops. Mind blowing, pure RAW hops. We don't need no stinking malts. Boy do the hops carry into the flavour. I mean, my God, what are they thinking? Like chewing on a bloody hop pellet. Hop love, no! It's hop sex. Dirty hop sex. Yikes. Hops don't provide alcohol, so I guess without the malt this beer wouldn't be beer. So, I'm glad they added malt. Call me if you can actually taste it though. I can't find it. Oh yeah, it's bitter as well. A mean bitter, but it apologizes and buys you a Happy Meal after it slaps you around. Dry, clean and wicked hoppy. You want something else?

Appearance: Cloudy light gold with lots of bubbles. 1/4" of ivory colored foam. Fair amount of lacing.
Smell: Hop-along! Lots of lovely hops loaded with pine. Just like walking in a pine forest right after a rainfall. Can't wait to taste this beer!
Taste: Upfront piney hops, almost a woody flavor. A medium bitter finish. Very nice.
Mouth feel: Light mouthfeel. Very tingly, but not a lot of body.
Overall: This beer is all about the hops. The malt is only there to support the hops. Very nicely done. Would be an especially enjoyable beer for those who like hoppy brews.

Wow. Blown away by this beer. Upon opening the bottle I get the scent of lots of juicy hops. The right amount of malt sweetness and the hop bitterness to balance it out. An excellent beer.

Lots of grapefruit and hop bitterness on the finish.

Poured from a bottle that was bottled 3 days ago and the aroma is wonderful. Excited for further offerings from this brewery.

Beautiful glittering golden hue, slightly hazed, under a full flush of white foam.

Aroma: fresh, zesty, brimming with hops, bubbling over with citrus and pine, a vibrant, pithy nose, plumb with lemon and grapefruit.

Taste: Here's where it's getting good. We start with a slap of hops and a tickle of malt, and it never, ever quits. A fierce blast that tempers some in time, with malt succulent, soft, and supple, keeping the ground level, delivering a modicum of sweetness, providing a minimum of balance. Good and hoppy this one (though not out of bounds), and a remarkable drinker. Certainly a sessioner, with the continuing reward of hoppy goodness on the tongue.

Medium bodied, with a long, hoppy finish. The bitterness is high, and ever-present, and coupled with the malt flavor, it provide deliciousness. This is such an excellent pale ale, I'm finding it almost perfect. There's not a thing lacking, not a bit wrong, nothing to dishonor this ale. Like I said, these guys will have a hit on their hands.

Fantastic new Minneapolis pale ale. Devised and brewed by former Town Hall brewer Josh Bischoff, this very bitter pale ale is reminiscent of some of Town Hall's rotating pale ales, but with a much more bitter, hop-forward attack. I detect heavy Simcoe additions, with distinct gooseberry and catty aromas and flavors, combined with citrus and pine flavors from possible Amarillo and Cascade additions. Very resinous with hop oils coating and tantalizing the tongue. A true winner in every way, I also made a delicious vinaigrette dressing with a heavy dose of this beer, making the dressing sublime.
