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.

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.

This one has been sitting around for awhile. I hope that doesnít affect the taste. Appearance - Fairly clear. Golden-orange in color. Short lived one finger white head. Little bit of lacing here and there. Aroma - Citrusy, floral and piney hops. Mostly orange and grapefruit followed by some biscuity malted barley. Taste - Starts with a citrusy sweetness before giving way to citrus and piney bitterness. Dry biscuity malt comes in before finishing slightly bitter and dry again. Mouthfeel - Smooth, very drinkable. Lighter side of a medium body. Little high on the carbonation but it works here. Very balanced with the malts and the bitterness from the hops.. Pretty well done beer. I think it would benefit from being a little more fresh though.

Bottle. Nice shiny pour of bright orange and a light airy head. The aroma is citric and fruity, and the beer drinks with a nice acidic bite. Tangy, crisp, and cloying, this would go great with some nice spicy food. (#4437, 1/8/2011)

Thanks to phaleslu for sending this bottle out my way. Served in a snifter. Pours a clear medium apricot with a two-finger white head. Nice retention and plenty of lacing on the way down. Nose carries some bright citrus notes plus a bit of a tropical character. Nice orange and tangerine to go along with a bit of mango. The hop character isnít as strong in the flavor, but thereís a nice bitterness to the finish. Fairly dry after a light body. All around this is very well done.
