Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

Reviewed 4/6/13. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a moderately clear amber color. The head is a two finger offwhite shade, retaining itself decently. Lots of lacing on the glass, too. S: Thereís a nice amount of mango, papaya, grapefruit, and herbs on the nose, with enough malt to balance. I love the Simcoe-forward nature of this one. Develops an onion-y note after warming up, and thatís a good thing. T: Again, this really showcases Simcoe hops well. It starts with some mild, unsweetened tropical fruits, before it develops a strong piny, herbal tone near the finish and aftertaste. The finishing bitterness might put some off, but who cares?! Give me more. M: No annoying syrupy linger or overdone malt sweetness here, yet at the same time, itís not wrecking the palate with bitter dryness. As such, itís nicely crisp, not to mention superbly drinkable. O: This might be my favorite pine-forward IPA to date. It kind of reminds me of Troegs Perpetual IPA with its crisp finish and Simcoe-heavy nature, which is always a good thing.

Bottle at home late night. Yellow orange beer one finger head. Nose is tropical fruits and pine. Tastes of pine, resin, juicy fruit gum, banana, florals, light vanilla notes. Sweet fruity finish. Palate is creamy with hints of bitterness.

A pretty good ipa. Descent aroma and a good hoppy flavor. Labor day beer drinking is good.

Pours an orange, maybe honey color. Very thick, but one finger head. Itís very cloudy. Lots of lacing.

Aroma is incredible. Very piney. Very hoppy. Very citrusy. Also, a little mint. Smells like an IPA should.

Taste follows the nose. This is quite bitter. Very hoppy. Very citrusy. What more can I say?

Mouthfeel is medium. Itís soft carbonation. The bitterness makes it a little less drinkable. Itís finishes a little bitter. The high abv is not so noticeable.

Overall, if you like IPAs, then you should seek this out. Itís very good. I really donít have anything more to add.

sawbuck (469) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Nice aroma of hops, some pine, and fresh grass. Mild orange color with an off white head. Rich sweet malt up front with some nice backbone. Resinous pine bitterness filters in and intensifies through finish. Slightly slick mouth feel. Finish is slightly heavy on bitterness but pleasant. Solid

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.

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.

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.
