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.

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. Itís got huge citrusy/piney hop flavor but balanced well with the malty backbone of it. A fantastic IPA, chicken curry or not.

I like this IPA a lot. It pours a very clear, gold/yellow with an average amount of carbonation. The aroma is sweet and citrus, and the flavor is really sweet, tangerine citrus up front, then you slide into the malt, and then this huge, strong, bitter grapefruit finish. The nose isnít a big component of the flavor, but thereís so much going on on the tongue, here, that itís not an issue. Iíll remember this one, and eventually have it again.

May 2012 from bottle. Orange to amber color with a white head. Hop aromas with pine and citrus. Fantastic balance and very refresing. A solid IPA.

chicowv (453) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2013
12 oz bottle: Pours bright yellow and gold with a nice thick white head, small CO2 bubbles and great lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, good bready malt balance. Taste is sweet with a bit of salt and bitter to finish. Flavors of citrus, pine and malt make a well balanced, quaffable offering. Smooth and easy to drink.

Very solid ipa...subtle aromas, golden appearance, tastes of hops, citrus and a light floral. Overall this will be an ipa I frequent often.

Bottle from Big Red in Bloomington this one has it all-hoppy piney floral aroma with balance up front and smooth bitter finish---drink as much of this one as you can

Dr_Fellini (265) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear deep golden color with mild sediment and a thin off-white head. Aroma is exquisite, full of citrusy, floral hop characteristics, including pear, apple, and grapefruit. Flavor is very similar, moderate bitterness full of fruity sweetness. Medium body with a lingering bitterness and sweetness. Excellent IPA.

I donít know why this beer is rated so highly by everyone. I still think that Schlafly rarely is able to mix hops well and come out with a good IPA. I had this in the bottle, drought, on cask, and dry hopped with Amarillo and was equally unimpressed with each one. I love hops and IPAs but this one is unbalanced and muddled.

Bottled February 21, 2013, or about 4 months ago. Pours darker yellow color.Lots of hops and malts, but too heavy for my taste. PErhaps a fresher bottle would have upped the rating, but I thought the flavor was muddy, and the hops somewhat buried in the malts. Not a favorite.
