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.

Poured from bottle to tulip glass. A hazy orange tinged amber. The aroma hits you right at the poor. Grapefruit, floral and strong. Taste is grapefruit at first turning to pine resin. Head was white and resided to sides of glass quickly. Nice body and a little oily. Bitter on the finish. Very nice.

Very nice. Clear copper with thick white head. Aroma is malty and lots of grapefruit. Taste follows nose. Goes great with red potatoes skillet fried with basil and rosemary.

This beer pours a hazy orange with a large off-white head, and the aroma blends citrus, pine, and resin hops. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly sweet, a touch umami, and a bit of butteryness, and the palate fuses a medium body, long finish, average carbonation, and a slightly texture.

FROM NOTES: July 16, ’12 Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tasting glass. A: The hop nose is not overwhelming, but adequately strong. A: Pours a clear yellow with mild fluffy white head. Recedes quickly with little lacing. T: Piney hop flavor that coats the tongue nicely. Not much bitterness in the after taste tho. Could be more complex, but solid nonetheless. P: Can definitely feel a little weight from the 7.2% ABV. Other than that, fairly light, but more of a session beer. O: A solid easy drinking ipa with a good sweetness to bitterness ratio. I wouldn’t mind knocking back a few of these.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a golden clear color. Aroma of grapefruit, strong grapefruit. Wow. This has one if the strongest grapefruit smells I've had. There no pine, nothing if the more citrus variety. Grapefruit. And the taste is the same. I feel like I'm sucking a grapefruit. This doesn't have the balance I expected. I wouldn't suggest this one unless you love grapefruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I've had a lot of their beers. But I wasn't expecting this. Very nice ipa. Golden color. Grapefruit up front. Malty goodness. Fantastic.

5/14/2011: Schlafly American India Pale Ale... Aroma: White grapefruit peel. Appearance: Cloudy dull golden color with a fluffy, off-white head. Flavor: A littlee toffee malt dominated by an extremely overly bitter grapefruit pithe hoppiness. Palate: Medium-light; lacking mouthfeel. Overall: Really disconnected and a poor flavor overall; I like bitterness, but this one was just raw, unbalanced, and lacking good flavor!

Draught sample (7.2% ABV) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #230 for this beer.

Had this paired with a slightly spicey chicken curry, which really smoothed over the bitterness of the beer I thought. It’s got huge citrusy/piney hop flavor but balanced well with the malty backbone of it. A fantastic IPA, chicken curry or not.
