COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

Looks are deceiving! Do not judge this book by its cover. A golden amber coloring that packs a lot of flavor. Strong hops with a smooth finish.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 golden American IPA. Grapefruit, Pine tar resin and a malty backbone that can try to compete. we admire that! Fresh clean tap from Barcade J.C. Donít need anything else here. strong not harsh with some smoothness and froth.

Clear, golden/orange color. Nice combination of dank and fruitiness with the hops. Lingering bitterness, great mouthfeel, medium body. Great IPA.

Pours a pale golden color with a paper thin head great lacing however. Aroma is dank, great in yo face hop aroma and nothing else, this is my kind of ipa! Taste is different than what Iím used to. Hops are right up front but it finishes with guava or some sort of tropical fruit, different and I like it! Smooth and refreshing, I really like this different ipa!

Bottle dated 5/1/12. Appearance: clear, golden orange with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma: Citrus/grapefruit, floral/honeysuckly, touch of biscuity/breadiness. Taste - Nice floral hops begin, leading into graduating piney bitterness from middle thru the end; some breadiness in the middle; finishing well bitter then lingering with grapefruit juice and pith/even that floral honeysuckle. Mouthfeel: light to medium creamy texture, but with medium carbonation that works very well. Overall: Iím VERY IMPRESSED with this beer. Itís got all the great attributes that I love in IPAs with a slightly different (more bready/yeasty) backbone that offers a new dimension.

Amazing beer! On cask for the second year in a row, served at the Schlafly Taproom. Orange and clear, head and lace were so-so, but then itís on cask so I didnít expect a foam-fest. Monstrously hoppy smell and taste, with lots of crispy pine bite. You can smell and taste the hop oils in this one. Grapefruit follows. Body is wonderful, medium, perfectly carbonated (more than youíd expect from a cask, actually). This is one of Schlaflyís great beers, definitely a good one for hop heads!

Perfect IPA in my book. One of the few beers that I take a sip of and say "wow, thats just right". Great dry hop taste. Very smooth. Lots of grapefruit and pine but very smooth. This is what I think of when it is 90+ degrees and I want a nice hoppy beer.

This one has a perfect level of hoppiness to it. There is an initial boldness to the hops that quickly mellows out to a nice and refreshing aftertaste.
