Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks to Dave! Unfortunately from July, so taking it with a grain of salt. Pour is clear yellow-orange with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of pine, citrus with orange, grapefruit, lemon, biscuit, bready notes, slight earth touch of grassy notes as well, spice as well. Taste is a bit old but still nice, some pine, grass, slight lemon, orange peel, hints of spice, biscuit and bready yeast, finishing fairly dry and bitter. Nice, will seek this out fresh for sure!

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?

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!
