Clear orange pour. Apt carbonation that creates a long lasting white head. Citrusy and sweet malty flavor on the front end. Well balanced, hoppy finish. Nice example of the style.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Hazy honey brown pour with a nice head that unfortunately fades fast. Aroma of floral hops and honey. Flavor: nice bite of floral and citrus hops with a hint of honey on the finish. It is medium bodied and smooth on the palate with fine-bubbled carbonation. Overall: great, sturdy APA.

Excellent light amber flavor, hoppy and my kind of bitterness! Somewhat thin head, but a good American Pale Ale. Good one Schlafly!

Golden amber in color with a foamy white head that leaves a generous amount of lacing down the glass. Big inviting citrus hop hit in the aroma. Big hit of citrus hops are flowery and sweet. Long bitter finish with subtle malty notes. Crisp.

It’s the Todd show staring DHAPA. From a wickedly cold icy tomb rises a mountainous froth that just sits there. A waxy apricot color and superb lacing. Strong aromas of fresh crispy citrus rind but it dissipates after a while. Full nectar with mellow carbonation creating a dense milky texture. A fat caramel malt backbone delivers a fresh load of snappy citrus with a bit of biscuiting. Beautifully balanced with a snappy finish. A really tasty brew.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2008 Beer that Schlafly makes for the Boathouse Restaurant in Forrest Park. On tap at the restaurant. The body is dark orange and gold with a slightly off white head. The aroma has grapefruit and some floral notes. Lots of citrus. The taste has a citrus note with some bread crust. The finish is like fresh green beans.
Earlier Rating: 1/7/2006 Total Score: 3.4
The body was dark orange with a little haze. The was a thin whit ehead on top. The aroma was soapy with some grapefruit. The taste had grapefruit along with some light caramel and oced tea. The light body makes this very drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 I liked this one a lot! Picked this up at Sahara Mart. Pours a nice even amber color. Lots of piney and bitter hops. "Medium bodied" is the perfect way to describe this one. Doesn’t overpower, but not watery at all. Has just a hint of malt, but it acts as a nice balance to the hops. I really dug this one and would have it again.
