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.

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.

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.

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 (3322) - 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.

Jesterdeal (1923) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap at Harpers. This was kin of an oddball. Aroma of tropical fruit, pineapple, lemon zest, and grass. Pours light gold with a small head that lingers. Taste is guava, pineapple, grapefruit, grass, and a light malt finish. Clean but bitter. Very quaffable, just a little odd.

Pours light bodied amber orange. Ample, frothy head. Some light sediment floating around. Damp, resinous aroma with pale malt and leafy, bittering hops. Orange peel. Smooth and easy drinking. Light mouthfeel. Definitely more in line with the British style of ale. Malt bill is the dominant force in this brew, with dry and somewhat inconspicuous hop profile. Not bad but I prefer a more hop forward session IPA done the American way.

UDBeernut (1775) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Yup, pours light orange amber, thin off white head. Big nose of tangerine, oranges. Taste has undertone of sweetness, citrus from aforementioned fruit. Light undulating bitterness. Crushable light body.

dmac (4080) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2014
12oz can from Crossroads. Poured a deep rusty sunburnt orange under a smaller foamy off white head with lots of large clinging bubbles. Aroma of juicy orange slices, citrus meat, dough, old lemon and a touch of wet pine. Body is medium with average carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor is a bit weak. Notes of older citrus meat, some bad bread crutsts, hint of tea, dough and earth. Meh, there are way better lower ABV out there now-a-days.

12oz can from Crossroads Spirits. Pours a clear golden oranges color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet oranges, grapfruit, grain, and pine. Taste of sweet grains, old citrus skins, and light notes of pine.
