finger head showed quickly and had some decent staying power. The soapy thickness of the head makes for some decent lacing.
Zesty grapefruit stands up front followed by pine, lemon and orange. The hops are extremely aromatic and they overpower the sweet, caramel smelling malty backbone.
Smooth, sweet hoppy bitters are up front in the mouth and evoke tastes of grapefruit and pine being most prominent. The malty caramel background here is light but contributes well to the sweetness here. Very drinkable for the hop lover.
Thick on the front but some middle of the road carbonation makes the end crisp and refreshing. Keeps bringing me back for more.
Very tasty overall. Well rounded and refreshing. Just a slightly above average IPA and something I could enjoy a few of and a summer evening.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells like a mixture of pine and citrus hops. Also has a yeasty stinky feet type of aroma that I didn’t 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.

Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Taste is pine, citrus, bitter, hints of sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Schlafly American IPA finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Initial combination hop pine/floral (celery?) flavor. Fades quickly to a light citrus finish.

Wow, another Schlafly that I actually like. And this one is excellent, not something I expect from them. Great citrus and floral aroma and tastes with a nice balance of malt sweetness. If they can produce this, why do so many of their other beers suck?

Opened 6.5 weeks after bottled. Citrus aroma carries through to palate with forward, grapefruit-like hops. Quite a refreshing IPA.

Very hoppy aroma with subtle malt sweetness. Taste is a lot of bitterness from hops and subtle maltiness on the back end. Hops last long on the palate, but nice!
