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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

APPEARANCE: A hazy burnt orange/amber. 2 fingers of off white creamy head. Hold a flash light up to it and I can see quite a bit of small bubbles rising. Leaves some nice lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Floral, mango, pineapple, pine, citrus, nice sweetness to it.
TASTE: Bitterness up front carries all the way to the back and builds over the course of drinking this beer. Nice blast of sweetness mid palate/ citrus, then the bitterness comes back. Mostly some citrus rind, slightly astringent, a little mango.
FEEL: Nice medium carbonation. Quite dry from start to finish.
OVERALL: Impressed with the nose. The flavor was kind of two note. Above average beer.

A: Hazy golden with plentiful head; great lacing.
S: Hop resin, earth and grass, a little malty fruit and cheese
T: A lot more earthy flavor, nice hops on the back end...just sticky enough to linger for a while with a bit of peppery spice alongside the resin.
M: More viscous than expected with bright carbonation.
O: Very nice, even thought the can is a little old. Would definitely drink again given the chance to have a really fresh one! Thanks, Jesse!

Poured from a 12oz. can.

A: Pours a murky amber orange color with some visible carbonation. Head is one and a half fingers of foamy slightly off white color. Head retains well and leaves some very nice lacing.

S: Citrusy fruit aromas of orange peel, and apricot. Also is very herbal hop forward with grassy, and pine like hops. There is a slightly honey sweet aroma as well. Pretty dank with lots of hops, smells closer to an IPA.

T: Flavors of citrus, orange and grapefruit mostly. Then some herbal spice, sweet malts, and lots of pine like hops. Has a lot of bitterness to it and is not as balanced as you would hope for a Pale Ale. Much like the nose suggests closer to an IPA.

M: Light bodied, with a moderately high amount of carbonation. Slick and slightly oily. Has a lingering bitterness and finishes hop heavy.

O: Not a bad brew by any means but not anything special. I like my pale ales to be nice and balanced and this is just a hop bomb. Closer to an average IPA in my opinion. A good beer for you if you like hoppy bitter pale ales.

Hoppy Hoppy Hoppy... Bomb for this pale ale. This is currently my favorite indeed beer. It has a great taste that even non-IPA friends enjoy. Not too thick like other IPAs but a smooth thickness. Piney, citric-bitterness, hint of floral, and hint of honey and dry finish. A must have for summer beer.

This is definitely closer to an IPA than an APA, as far as I'm concerned. And that's just fine by me. It's full of hoppy goodness (I've had IPAs with a tamer hop profile). There's a good bit of malt as well. Day Tripper is nicely balanced, and easy to drink. It's not very bitter. A very well crafted and interesting beer.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a soft hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that died off fairly quickly. Lacing was few and far between, but messy where it did appear.
The smell started with some piney hops bursting into a big citrusy punch of hops. Light caramel malts do show themselves.
The taste was mainly sweet with a light bitterness that's somewhat grassy yet citrusy to ride in underneath. Light malts are there as well.
The mouthfeel was about a light on the body with a decent sessionable feel around it. Carbonation felt right as an APA.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good APA. I'd have it again if I could trade for it. Good stuff

This beer pours a rich straw with an expansive head. The aroma leads with a strong pine note, followed by mango and passionfruit. The tropical fruits come through more in the flavor, pairing well with the pine and hint or caramel. The mouthfeel is halfway between thick and thin, and only slightly astringent. Overall I feel like this is a solid, dry, American pale. Hop foward, plently of bitterness - just what I am looking for in a solid, everyday pale ale.
