COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

Poured from the tap of a local pub. Amber color, not much head, but what was there was white. Aroma decent, but unremarkable, but improves as it warms. Same with taste. Lovely hop level for the beer. Nice, fruity hint in with the great hop flavor. Good session beer.

Found a sixpack of this "Dry Hopped APA" at a supermarket in Evansville. Pours a hazy amber body with a copious offwhite head. Light medium body with crisp carbonation. Aroma of leafy grassy hops, citrus, and red apples. Taste has a persistent green leafy hop bitterness that is complimented by a McIntosh apple fruitiness and some citrus. Toasty caramel malt backbone is subtle but balances well. One of the best new APA’s I’ve encountered recently.

Wow. This is different from Schlafly, a Dry Hopped American Pale Ale. Note, this is different from their previous incarnations of the beer. Very citrus and fruity in the aroma and in the taste, with a slight sharp bite of hops at the end. It has a decent malt backbone and is slightly sweet in that area also. Very respectable IPA.

Poured an orange amber; with slightly creamy off white head. Aroma was nice with caramel, grapefruit, and floral elements. Some lacing. Enjoyed it very much; especially for the style. Bitterness was mild and palate was good; making it easy drinking. Flavor was fairly balanced, with caramel, toffee, citrus and floral components.

On tap at Schlafly Tap Room. Poured a lightly-hazy medium caramelly-golden with a short cap of white head. Aroma was of very sweet caramel and pine with plenty of spicy citrus.. bit of toffee in there too.. good stuff! Flavor was very hoppy with pine, citrus, and some floral providing the bulk of it.. sweet, well-placed caramel backing provided sufficient support.. left a long, sweet, caramel and pine finish. Very nice balance and transitions from the bitter first impression to the sweet creamy middle to the long bitter finish.

Another brew from MrPhoenix. This one is a step above the PA. Solid looker. Smell has way more kick to it. Nice hop aroma. Taste has a nice bitter hop kick to the finish. Solid flavor all around.

A dark orange apperance. The aroma is filled with citrus with a hint of vanilla also. The flavor is slight bitter with some sweet notes as well. Plenty of oranges and grapefruits showing through in this one. The mouthfeel is quite carbonated. Overall this is a simple but good APA.

a well crafted pale ale the blows their flagship pale out of the water! Sampled on tap at Bottleworks in Maplewood. light orange, Maybe just a bit thin for my liking, but the balance is near perfect if not a little on the weak side. would be a good session beer.
