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.

After thoroughly enjoying Schlafly’s Tasmanian IPA I expected to enjoy this one as well and I was right. Pours golden with a touch of orange and a small head with little lacing. The aroma is fantastic and covers the entire hop spectrum. It has floral, pine and citrus notes. Smells great. Taste is a nice combination of hop bitterness and just the right amount of malt backbone. There is a nice bitter citrus finish. Overall this beer is light to medium bodied, crisp and easy to drink. I think I prefer the Tasmanian by a little but this beer is also excellent. I shouldn’t have waited so long to try beers from this brewery.

At Schlafly Bottleworks in a shifter. The orange color is nice. The aroma has a citrus, piney smell. It has a nice taste but afterwards it has an astringent aftertaste. Nice IPA though.

Nate (3708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2014
From bottle. Nice fragrant floral-grassy hop aromas. Mild sweetness from pale malts, some biscuit. Medium golden amber clear with haze, topped with foamy-creamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with underlying salty note. Big hops flavor, grassy and fruity. Light biscuit and sugar. Alcohol presence. Big bitter finish with lingering bitter salty after.

On tap at the STL airport. Pours a clear golden amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of bitter citrus and pine with a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has lots of citrus with a touch of resin and a light grain backbone.

BLADT (576) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle pour. Gorgeous orange wheat color in glass. Foamy white head the persists. Solid lacing all the way down. No complaints. Aroma is fresh and creamy orange, rounded pine and resin notes, and slight toasted malt and honey. Works well. Medium body. Straight up hop juice;: oily and bitter. Citrus and resin, a light hard candy like sweetness. Full mouthfeel. Lingers on finish. Solid.

SpongeRuiner (691) - Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Got a bottle from a trade. Pours a clear orange color with a thick thick bubbly chunky head. The head really lingers on for a while leaving a webbed lacing. A nice light fresh floral hop nose. A hopped carbonation upfront. A nice mix of floral notes and a grapefruit citrus. A touch of caramel in the middle. Crisp and drinkable. A very decent IPA.
