Poured out a clear, golden-orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of citrus, grapefruit and sweet caramel. Nice tropical fruit flavors with bitter hop bite. Sweet caramel and toffee backbone.

12 oz. can poured into stemless glass.

Appearance is near clear, amber, with a persistent foamy head. Active carbonation continues to rise as the glass settles.

The aroma has a hint of floral hops, a bit of tropical fruits getting blended in with a malty sweetness.

Flavor is similar to the aroma. A good amount of residual malt sweetness lends a bit of caramel flavor to the overall profile of this brew. Bitter piney and floral hops. Citrus comes into play too with some other fruit flavors bouncing around.

A bit bubblier than many IPA's with a medium mouthfeel.

Good balanced flavors. The perceivable malt characteristics may be a bit out of vogue in the current IPA scene, but this one comes together pretty well. The bitterness settles everything down and keeps it clean.

Deep red/orange Amber. Medium frothy loose head. Great floral character and roundness. Some sweet fruit flavors and banana. I might like this more at a higher abv. Solid IPA

First it has to be said that Let It Ride is a beer that I wait for each spring. The main reason for writing this review is to let the brewery know this assessment. Much like the previous reviewer the 6 pack I bought this week is weak. Generally pours the nice copper color, but is noticeably more cloudy than usual. The head comes up nicely but then dissipates and doesn't leave the solid lacing that we're used to. The main issue, though, is that instead of the well hopped, malty, balanced flavor that we're used to, it is thin and astringent. Still drinkable but not a beer to return for. I won't be buying anymore Let It Ride this season. You guys at Indeed make good beer, I hope this is a batch issue, not a business decision.

L: Rich Amber. Very nice color. Creamy white head with decent lacing and retention.

S: faint tropical fruits (guava), some banana, malt. Not much here.

T: banana follows the nose. A little citrus in the mix, maybe some orange. Malt forward, but not cloyingly so. A snap of evergreen bitterness in the back. Nicely balanced, but lacking complexity or depth of flavor.

F: light on body.

O: a decent malt forward IPA.
