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.

radio_nowhere (701) - Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Can into snifter glass. Amber’ish-golden color with white head. Aroma of grapefruit/pine hops and pale malt. Taste seems lighter then aroma led on, moderate hop bitterness/flavor and grainy toasted malt. Light body, moderate carbonation, malty, dry with minimal bitter finish. Sessionable with its 4.5% ABV. Decent but not seeking again.

12oz can poured into a tumbler glass. Clear light amber color with a small white head. Hoppy nose with light tropical and pine notes and faint floral aroma. Mellow malt flavors, with pleasant medium bitterness, some graininess and faint nuts. Nice hop flavor is also present. Light-med body, well balanced, highly quaffable and pretty cool.

seymour (1323) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2013
A nonic pint glass at Schlafly Cask Night. The same beer they put in their cans, except in a live cask with extra Simcoe dry hops, pulled from a gravity tap, no forced CO2. It poured a hazy orange-amber colour with just a tiny ring of bubbles and lace (it was the end of the night.) Aromas of grapefruit, cantalope melon, fresh cut grains, rising bread dough, subtle ale yeast esters. Flavors: firm malt sweetness, a little caramel, apricots, green grapes, citrus rind and zest, pine resin, blackcurrants, blackberries, lemonade. Medium body, very low carbonation, extremely long-lasting fruity, tangy, resiny aftertaste. This recipe was already a great beer, the cask-conditioning and extra dry-hopping made it even better.

Elwood (2959) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. can at Leesburg Brewing Company. It pours a clear orange color with a small white head. The nose has a little citrus mixed with a light fruitiness. Fairly dry on the palate. There is a light grain sweetness but well balanced with citrusy hops. Light to medium body with a medium finish. Certainly sessionable and fairly tasty too.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 4, 2013
12oz can. Rating #35. Clear copper color with a white head. Grapefruit and a little pine with a light toasted malt aroma as well. Mild malt sweetness, a little more citrus and a mild hop aftertaste, damn good drinker! (2851)

DSG (5036) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 2, 2013
Can. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Clear deep golden to amber color with a medium off-white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma, a bit weedy, with tropical fruits and citrus. Rather dry flavor with only light malty sweetness, pleasant hoppiness, a bit fruity, and a refreshing bitter finish, a bit herbal. Very nice and quaffable.

Total Wine, Fairfax, sixer: Pours a golden body with a white head. Aroma is herbal and citrus hops. Taste is hoppy as expected, but not excessively so. Nice balance. Light, but not watery. Very easy to drink and pleasant, but not really exceptional. I still don’t really get session IPAs... I mean couldn’t we just call it an APA and get it over with?

12oz can poured into a shaker. Poues a clear dark.orange with minimal head. Aroma of grassy citrus. Tastes light bitter. Piney with grassy citrus. Light bodied with a somewhat creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a verylong finish. Overall, great. I would pretty much drink this everyday.
