Pours clear gold with thick soapy white head and nice lacing. Strong aroma chacterized mostly by pine hops with some floral and citrus in the mix. Taste is very bitter with some malts for good balance. Full of flavor and drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Received in trade from bluewolf17, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a crystal clear Medium golden color with a huge bubbly white head that persists forever. Smells of pine and resin with a hint of garlic and a modest caramel bready malt to back it up. Light earth and a touch of alcohol round out the nose. The flavor is sweet with bready caramel and a solid shot of ethanol. Bitter pine and resin dominate the flavor with a long lingering garlic and ethanol bitterness finishing us off. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. Nice IPA but maybe the flavors are a bit harsh and clashing just a little bit.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Flowery hops, hints of citrus, grainy malts, and some light malty sweetness. Relatively well balanced. Not bad.

Poured from bottle into snifter, smells great...a little subtle but great. Hits pretty light and then builds into a crescendo of taste before tapering off. Well rounded for sure.

The aroma of this IPA is the best I’ve ever smelled. It has all the qualities of an IPA you’d want but it does have a little bit of bitterness that lingers after you’ve finished. Over all I liked it.

This is what an American Hop forward brew is supposed to taste like. Lots of Piney, citrus, sticky, grapefruit and other floral flavors. Mouth-feel just right, aftertaste nice also. Kind of like Hopslam only minus the honey and less malt. GOOD JOB Schlafly !!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fresh bottle from Capone’s. Golden bodied with lots of foamy white head. Strong citrus orange aroma. A high yet not overwhelming delivery of bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable orange with some tangerine, mint, pine. Medium mouthful. Somewhat palate erasing.
