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.

Bottle from barleyPops. Thanks Dad! Bottled on 5/17 so itís about as fresh as it gets. Dark orange pour with a big white head. I get floral hoppy aromas with a hint of pine. Balanced flavor with plenty of bitter hops and caramel malt to back it up. Creamy mouthfeel and very smooth finish. Really nice, drinkable IPA!

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.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2015
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.

Good stuff. Hood citrus and malt background. Easy drinking and finishes with light bitter finish. Good package. Bottle.

coachd (341) - Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2015
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.

SPDickerman (1065) - Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

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?

aroma - mostly citrus. Taste - hoppy, grapefruity. Another refreshing IPA, that I tasted on a warm day.
