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.

This is just a great all around brew and has become one of my go to beers. Orangish light amber color and white head. Some floral notes and quite a bit of citrus in the aroma and flavor from the hops but the character some describe as "onion-like" from Summit hops adds a special sharpness, vibrancy, and crispness to the hop flavors that I love. Additions of some moderately toasted malts to the grain bill adds an extra dimension to the flavor which keeps the beer interesting. Alcohol is low enough and the beer is dry enough to provide for a high level of drink-ability.

Found this at Four Firkins in Minneapolis. I didn't notice at the store that the can was a bit past date--about two weeks past, as of today. We'll see how she held up. Poured the 12 oz can right from the fridge into my pint glass.

L: Pours a light honey amber with about a half-inch of eggshell head that drops pretty quickly and leaves a film that sticks around and leaves a bit of cling. Moderate visible carbonation in this crystal-clear brew.

S: Bright, fruity nose, with particular notes of apricot and citrus rind. Some other grassy hop notes above a cracker malt underside. Very pleasant and relatively assertive aroma.

T: Not nearly as much fruit in the taste as there was in the bouquet. A subdued apricot/stone fruit flavor and some more assertive grapefruit rind over dry cracker malts. There's actually much more of the bitter rind flavor throughout the taste on this one. Even at the front, you begin to get that hop bitter at the sides and back of the tongue. The middle continues the grapefruit rind theme, with a bit of spicy/peppery quality coming through. The back end is hoppy all the way, with grapefruit rind leaving quite a bit of bitter.

F: On the lighter side of medium-bodied, it feels a bit watery, but not to its detriment. Bright, smooth, effervescent, and decidedly bitter in turns. Clean-finishing, but not without bringing the bitter first.

O: I'm a big fan of Indeed's brews, particularly their Let It Ride IPA. This one is somewhat reminiscent, in that it brings very big bright hop flavors all the way through the taste. With a relatively low ABV, this one drinks like bigger beers while remaining pretty easy to put away. Have to try to find this one fresher.
