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.

3 oz draft sampler pours Amber with a off white head. Aroma of malts and citrus. Taste is the hops up front with a malty finish.

12 oz bottle dated 1/5/15 poured into a pint glass. I will keep in mind that itís slightly old at this point when reviewing. The beer pours a somewhat hazy golden orange with an inch or so of tan head that shrinks down a bit and leaves real nice lacing. Aroma is grassy hops, bready malts mostly. It reminds me more of a pilsner, but than again, the beer is a bit old. On to taste. Right away there is a bit of hop bitterness and bright citrus flavors. They are quickly met with a heavy malt backbone with tons of bread and biscuit notes, as well as some traces of toffee. The beer was easy to drink and I could have a few more. Overall not too bad, especially considering the age.

Pours a hazy orange. Has a nice aroma and a good hoppy flavor. Nice to have every now and then.

A score of 91? Mine must be old? Too one-dimensional with lots of hops citrus rind and pine resin and bitterness, but thereís no malt character to back it up. Not terrible, like most Schlafly beers, but not exactly good.

Lubiere (10767) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
A hazed golden amber ale with a thick frothy white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, light oxidation, OK. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with citrusy floral hops, pink grapefruit, still solid after a few years.

Thick foamy head leaves white lacing. Citrus hop aroma. Nice bitterness with a little bit too an aftertaste.

tmoreau (2784) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2015
On tap at Johnís Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL., dispensed to a shaker showing a hazed, orangey gold hue, with a meringue-like layer of cream colored head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was initially cloaked by the persistent froth, but gradually revealed a nose that wasnít altogether fresh, but very dank & stinky, followed by citrus as grapefruit, and some resinous notes. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste also presented some malt sweetness, and like creaminess to the mouthfeel. The hop influence was strong, citrus & rind astringency that lingered well past the empty glass, and a full serving of water. A hearty APA whose bitterness rivaled many DIPAs that Iíve sampled.

Amber with a cream head. Nose is fruity hops, sticky, florals, and bright. Great palate, fruity hops, sticky palate, smooth, and a easy finish

On tap at lambert international airport. Good bitter hoppy pale ale with the only sweetness coming through right up front. The rest of each sip and aftertaste is dominated by hop bitterness. I really liked this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In my beer drinking Iíve came a long way and these malty style APAís donít cut it anymore. This one has a strong and distinct malty backing and finish. Not enough hops for a dry hopped ale for me. Kind of let down by this one.

On tap at the at louis airport. Hazy orange with a white head that only briefly graced us with its presence. Orange peel and wheat and hops were dominant but nothing overwhelming.
