COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlafly IPA is a session IPA, a smooth golden ale packed with the bold flavor and aroma of American hops. We crafted it in the spirit of the low gravity IPAs common in the UK where the style stands for hoppy, not heavy.

Luvystypotables (622) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2014
A medium intensity aroma of floral hops with citrus and pine as well as traces of plum and orange. Good looking beer with a small white head on a light;y carbonated, clear golden body. Taste disappoints after such a great aroma. It is a mild floral and pine taste with a thin watery body and not much aftertaste.

deyholla (6613) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 1, 2014
On tap at the STL airport. Pours hazy amberish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has lots of earthy grass hops with a touch of resin and an earthy grain backbone. Flavor is similar with a bit sweeter, but still earthy, citrus, a bit of grass and grain underlying.

Pours a slightly hazy golden with white head. Spruce, bread, and light fruit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more bread malt notes.

brokensail (10808) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 20, 2014
On tap @ Schlafly Tap Room, Lambert Airport edition. Just listed as IPA, but apparently thatís this. Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose has a bit of a cracker note to it and is a touch on the soapy side. Lots of floral hops, though, and a nice citrus character. Perhaps a touch too bitter on the palate. Soap, lots of citrus rind, and pine. Somewhat grassy, too. Only a mild malt sweetness, more along the lines of dry, crackery malt.

OzarkElmo (295) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Have only had 5-6 of this new style, but this is the best offering of a "Session IPA" Iíve had to date. Pours a light amber with moderate head. Good hop presence on the nose. Well-balanced taste leaning to the hops more than malt. Nice, dry finish and once again, a good offering of the style.

JDBaker11058 (1246) - Maryland, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Appearance: clear orange gold, with a frothy white head, average lacing. Aroma: fruity aroma, with citrus and tropical mainly, light pine, hint of honey. Taste: blood orange, pineapple, mango, lemon zest, light resin, sweet bready caramel malts underneath. Finish: dry, with medium-length bitter citrus. Notes: Very good example of the style, with a full body for the abv, decently balanced flavors, with hop character that is pronounced without being overly bitter. NoVA Brewfest 2014.

Cans from the Whole Foods in St. Louis. Smells sweet. Yellow. Tastes like iced tea. Is that cos we are down in the South? Not sure thatís a good thing. I miss San Diego.

fiercepanda (531) - Missouri, USA - JUN 19, 2014
A hazy copper beer with a small white head. The aroma is lightly floral and citrus. The flavor is grassy and piney, good solid bitterness.

boxofrane (2096) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Can from Total Wine and More in Claymont. Pours clear amber with a small off white head, glass bubbles, decent head retention. The aroma has a blend of caramel, pine, grass, quite hoppy, light citrus. The taste has a nice bitterness followed by a caramel balance, limited fruit in this guy. PRetty assertive but more on the APA than session IPA side.

CanIHave4Beers (3230) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Pours a hazy orange with a medium head and some spotty lacing on the glass.

The aroma is floral and a touch soapy, itís got some graham cracker & some limestone. Session IPAs (to me) seem to display a very hop forward aroma, this one misses that stylistic mark without being unpleasant.

The flavor is really pretty nice, hop forward with a touch of sweetness up front and a dryness throughout the rest of the palate. Itís got a nice fruit forward happiness along with a pleasant but low level of bitterness. The beer has a tinge of minerallity throughout which is sort of cool.

The beer does a better job than many at not coming across thin at such a low ABV.

chill golden brew, would be chitl with drinking about 70 of them over the course of a day.
