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.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a goblet.

A: Hazy, light amber color with one finger of white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass and prolific yeast particles hang suspended throughout the column.

S: Grapefruit is the dominant quality, although some biscuit is also detectable. Very clean, with plenty of volatile hops oils.

T: Begins dry, with bright mixed citrus hops aromatics and fairly soft and refined pale malt. Acidity is assertive, yet well-matched to the bright fruity qualities. The middle sees the emergence of herbaceous spice and restrained crystal or Belgian aromatic malt chewiness. Bitterness is strong for the style in the finish, with ale esters that linger on the palate.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly resinous and acidic on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This beer comes across as a dry-hopped Sierra Nevada pale ale might. Assertive but predictable, this APA is what West Coast-style IPAs were striving for some time in the past.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance - A hazy orange / amber color. Strong pour yielded a 1/2 finger head which dissipated quickly. While drinking there was no lacing

Smell - Tangerine / Orange rind and slight pale malts.

Taste - This is a bit more hoppy and bitter than your run of the mill APA. Orange marmalade and pine. Light malt in the background. Finish is rather bitter

Mouthfeel - Medium Body / Medium Carbonation. Dry Finish

Overall - This is a tasty offering from Indeed but it is more like an IPA than an APA.
