Lots of hop, lots of grapefruit, a great drinker. Bold flavor but not too heavy.

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.

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!

Bottle. Fresh leafy and citric hop aroma
Hazy amber, low offwhite head
Medium light body, light stickiness, wonderfull green hops though, really pleasant.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear bright dark amber, frothy white head, messy cobwebs of lace. Taste is solid malt that yields partially to a combination citrus/pine hop presence on the swallow, the bitter dominating, but never able to overcome the malt. The finish becomes sweeter as it fades. A very nice strong IPA.

Cask at taproom. Pours orange with a thin white head. Some dank hop notes on the nose. Has some leafy hoppiness on the tongue. It’s quaffable and finishes clean but it’s not spectacular to me.

Huge bubblegum, citrus, tropical, fruity, pine and hoppy taste. Delicious. Orange pour from 12oz bottle at red door. Sweet and underwhelming aroma. Taste makes it all

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy light golden with some good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is fruity with some hop character but a surprising husky malt thing going on. All together it come across as pretty faint as well.
The flavor is a touch sweet, the hop profile is nice with some good punchy grapefruit and piney hops. The bitterness is at a moderate level but balances the beer appropriately.
I’ve had this before & it’s been brilliant, although I never took notes. This batch falls short of my prior experience and expectations I’m afraid.
