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.

Pours a light clear orange. Has a faint aroma of hop, citrus, floral, and light malt. Has a watered down taste to start. Then the taste is light citrus hop and grapefruit with a light hop bitter aftertaste.

Location: Drafts at Ginger Man NYC, 11/23/13

Aroma: The aroma is clean and light hops, citrus and floral, and some light malt notes
Appearance: This beer pours a copper color with a decent sized white head atop it
Flavor: The taste is clean and light with a nice blend of hop bitterness and mild sweetness
Palate: Light bodied, with a low ABV and plenty of drinkability as is common among session IPAs
Overall Impression: I thought this was a more than solid example of the style. I could easily drink a ton of these, and it is a perfect beer for that. That being said, it isnít particularly exceptional in any of its components. Just a well-made, very drinkable, low ABV IPA.

Aroma is yeast, tropical fruit, grass and a hint towards dryness in the flavor. The flavor is tropical fruit/kiwi, citrus, hop resin, malts in the background and a very dry finish.

Draft. Hazy bright amber color, medium white head. Aroma if tropical fruit, grass. Taste is pineapple, grapefruit. Very easy drinking. Would it be redundant to say that this one is sessionable?

12oz can into a pint glass. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a thin fizzy white head. Really nothing in the way of head retention or lacing. Aroma of fruity and grassy hops really punches through along with what I can only describe as a "Schlafly aroma" that I detect in many of their brews. The light citrus is pleasing, though. More lemon/lime citrus in the taste and it follows the smell nearly exactly. Some hay and grass in there as well along with a touch of light malt. Bitterness is fairly light and the mouthfeel is thin and water but that is to be expected. Very crisp and dry finish. Overall, this beer is a decent session IPA but not one of the best out there. I much prefer Founders All Day IPA and Lagunitas Daytime. Still, itís ok for what it is.

Another beer thanks to Another6Pack. Cheers Trent! A gold pour, it comes with a 2 finger head of foam and has some good sticky lacing. Lots of citrus in the smell, some pine, a hint or 2 of tropical fruit. Oh, and thereís also a mild malt presence. Good smeller. Citrus and pine dominate the taste, good malty backbone though. It starts hoppy but not really bitter, settles in for a tick to some malty sweetness, then ends hoppy and where the most bitterness lies. Very tasty. Kind of light bodied at times, other times itís close to medium bodied. It is thinnest in the finish. As itís only 4.5% abv, I expected something along those lines. Tasty, smooth, easy drinking, Iím rather fond of this IPA. Another solid brew from Schlafly.
