    It's coming to cans. Will this be a part of their year round lineup or a seasonal? Can't wait to try this!

    Let it ride was fantastic last year, I hope it's year round.

    The website says it is a seasonal:(, and if on par with last years release it should be available sometime in April. I still remember my first sip of this at The Groveland Tap last year. I have been longing for it ever since. World class IPA IMO. So glad it will be available in cans. I'll be drinking this pretty much every weekend.

    I am just going to say this: Let it Ride is the best IPA in Minnesota. I doubt they will be able to make it year round for some years, securing high amounts of El Dorado and Mosiac hops ain't easy for the little guys. I think I am going to open up a new credit card and max it out on this stuff. I can't wait for the snow to melt and my taste buds to be shredded by this nector.

    Definitely can not wait for this! Got two pints of it last year and have been waiting for it to come out again since. Would be awesome it was somehow at Beer Dabbler on Saturday...

    Is this spring seasonal then? Anybody know when this will launch to cans?

    Better than Abrasive!?! Not questioning your personal palate, but that's a big statement to say best IPA in MN? I've never had it, so curious to what to compares to.

    Yes. Spring Seasonal will probably launch to cans in April.

    I love Abrasive, but Let it Ride is another animal completely. It's a toss up for me. Both are just epic beers.

    Woah...easy there big fella.
    He said IPA, not IIPA.

    Don't think Indeed can challenge Abrasive quite yet.

    In a perfect world Let it Ride would be the flagship, and Day Tripper would be the seasonal. Just splitting hairs though. Feeling very lucky to have this beer available in cans soon. Definitely a favorite.

    Nah, in a perfect world they are both year round flagship beers. Honestly, if they are able to source enough ingredients, I think they are foolish for not having Let it Ride as a year round offering. It blows away their other beers, and I'm a big fan of Day Tripper.

    I don't know how I missed it last year, but all this talk is getting me very intrigued.

    I do love Day Tripper.
    Probably my favorite MN pale.
    Really excited to try Let it Ride.

    So far, I've been nothing but impressed by Indeed. I wasn't a fan of either of their Autumn beers, but don't get me wrong- I thought they were good beers, just not my cup of tea. Day Tripper is especially lovely.

    I wish indeed would distribute down here in Roch. I personally thought this year's Stir Crazy was awesome

    Ditto. Any time I go to the cities I come home with some Indeed. Hopefully we see it down here soon...would love to see Day Tripper more places on tap...

    I think it is just a matter of time until that happens. I can know find Indeed cans and bottles west of the metro now. Always nice to pick up Midnight Ryder almost everywhere in the metro and surrounding areas.

    Indeed is still very young, its so exciting to see them growing and expanding and hearing of their plans of Barrel and Sour programs. Easily my favorite MN brewery from a creative and innovative standpoint.

    Its all a matter of time, I'll be looking forward to my first taste of Let it Ride this spring!

    Maybe it's just me but I consider the DIPA's like Abrasive in a different realm....totally different drinking experience than with a regular IPA...

    I saw it in their desires for a new brewer in the job posting on their site. I am sure it is only in development stages right now.

    It would be hard to compare this to Abrasive. I love that beer. If you have ever had an Abrasive then a Furious, you will know the insane that beer is. With that said, I was meaning a regular octane IPA.
    Abrasive always reminds me of fresh pineapple juice. Absolutely delicious, but it always tastes the very similar to me. Let It Ride is more complex in my eyes and truly changes as you get closer to the bottom of your glass. The mouthfeel is also divine, with just enough crystal malts to make a touch chewy but not to interfere with the brightness of the hops. I remember notes of mango, honeydew, pineapple, and even a touch of blackberry.
    You know what, I like it more than Abrasive. There, I said it.

    Is this on the market in cans yet. I looked for it last week and ended up buying some three month old Day Tripper instead (my mistake..i should have looked at the dates before I bought it)....it still wasn't bad but not nearly the dynamite beer it is fresher.....really looking forward to Let It Ride in cans but this weekend will be my last one in the TC for about a month so I'm hoping it is out.
