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.

From the tap at the Bottleworks in St. Louis. Lot of floral and fruit flavors. Smooth and extremely drinkable. Schaflly’s best beer, hands down. Very good from the bottle as well.

Easily one of the most refreshing ipa’s I’ve tried. Pours bright golden with awesome lacing. I got the citrus, piney, and hops but missed the caramel most talked about. Lovely!

Severian (42) - Saint Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a darker yellow with an off white head, leaves lacings all over the glass. Aroma is citrus, grapfruit, hoppy. Taste is much of the same - piney, grapefruit and citrus with some malt and caramel character in the background. Extremely well balanced. Very refreshing. Finishes dry Medium body. Shame this is only available in limited quantities during the summer. It’s outstanding.

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2011
bottle - Hazy orange pour with a fading off-white head. The aroma is of citrus hops, especially grapefruit. It tastes of citrus with high hops bitterness that lingers pleasantly. This is a good, medium bodied IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2013 Tasted on-tap 9/17/2011 at the Hop in the City Festival in a clean half-pint taster glass. A necessary offering for any American craft-brewer, Schlafly’s is nonetheless very good. True-to-style. The Cascade hops make themselves known, but not in a rude way. Judging by its name and overall impression, I suspect this is the same recipe as their “Dry-Hopped APA” (which is also quite good) minus the dry-hopping. 2/26/2013 UPDATE: I tasted it tonight on cask, dry-hopped with Mosaic hops and it’s bewilderingly better, so much so I would consider it "a whole ’nother thing" but alas, this is Ratebeer, so I’ll update this entry. Delicious.

12 oz bottle from Mr. Bearded bishop in Tenn. Looks rich and yellow with off white 1 finger head . Smells crisp and with a slight yeasty twang with some sweetness and hops. Tastes pale and bitter at first with more tongue lathering hops. Also with some pineiness and some of that light twang. Pretty darn good ipa at overall of 7 of 10.

12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a nice golden orange with a good amount of white head. Aroma of citrus and pine with a little sweet caramel malt. Taste is about the same with the caramel really coming through. Medium bitter and lightly sweet. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, very good. I wish I could get it year round but, alas, I’ll have to settle for the Dry Hopped APA instead.

It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was medium sweet, grapefruit and some pineapple. The taste was moderately sweet, pine, grapefruit and some alcohol. A very decent IPA.

Excellent and complex ipa if consumed ice cold on a very hot day. As it warms up it starts to get funky and not in a good way. I would call this a tropical ipa, as it has a mango, pear, guava, and pineapple thing going on.
