4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I love a palate-eroding blast of resin as much as the next hophead, but sometimes I want an IPA that makes me marvel at its smoothness and complexity. Enter American IPA. Itís no slouch with bitterness at 65 IBU and youíll definitely notice the dank grass and wet pine notes from the American hops. Youíll also notice how skillfully the caramel malt platform tames the citrus tones into juiciness and accents the floral character. Hereís to hoping I come across Schlafly Tasmanian IPA. Soon.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of gregwilsonstl, pours with a slightly hazed deep gold body that has a thin copper hues and supports decent near white head. The aroma offers up grapefruit, orange pith and some thin soft citrus and tropical fruit juicy odors off in the background. The taste delivers a pleasing hoppy bite with bitter grapefruit and tangerine like citrus hops as well as some modest resiny pine hoppiness. Toward midway it pulls up thin juicy citrus and faintly tropical fruity notes that add a nice balance to the overall hop experience. Into the finish seems to lurk faint esters that are wrapped in bitter grapefruit and lime and pine hoppiness. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells like a mixture of pine and citrus hops. Also has a yeasty stinky feet type of aroma that I didnít care for. That and the fact that the scent is not all that strong takes the aroma category down a few points. Looks unfiltered, pours a nice dark orange color with a very sticky white head. Tastes mildly bitter, very little malt to balance it out, with a bitter/soapy aftertaste. Palate is good with a strong aftertaste. Overall, not bad, but not as good as the rating says it is.

Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Taste is pine, citrus, bitter, hints of sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Schlafly American IPA finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Wow, another Schlafly that I actually like. And this one is excellent, not something I expect from them. Great citrus and floral aroma and tastes with a nice balance of malt sweetness. If they can produce this, why do so many of their other beers suck?
