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.

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.

chinchill (1630) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2013
12 oz can served in a silipint. Pours with a towering foamy head that has very good retention. The head becomes nicely creamy after it settles a bit. Clear medium amber. Gobs of sticky lacing get left on the glass Near medium body is a tad thin. Medium+ but soft carbonation. Very creamy feel for style. This very easy drinking "session" IPA packs a fair amount of hop aroma and flavor, but is only mildly bitter and relatively low ABV. Fruity with both citrus and tropical notes. Also a touch floral and, in tasting, herbal. Excellent sweet/bitter balance from start to finish.

Medium sized white head with good retention and a cute lace. Hazy, gold colored brew. Nose of light citrus, carbon paper and some pale malt notes. Light bodied with good carbonation, little acidic. Nice fruity hop flavors, inky, lil juicy, dry pale malts. Dry finish with a balanced bitterness. Fairly quaffable. 12oz can from statelineliquors.

Tmoney99 (10440) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Can sample at Canvitational. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex hop aroma. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Good brew.

HonkeyBra (3255) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Sampled at GTMW 2013. One of my favorite new styles, the session IPA. This one in particular pours a nice golden color with a white head. Aroma has lots of bright citrus and floral hop overtunes, maybe a hint of pale malt. Flavor is light, grassy and citrus bitterness balanced with a mild pale malt and bready sweetness. Thin bodied, lively carbonation. Finishes crisp and clean. Nice. I will revisit.

From a 12 oz can shared at home. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Floral hop nose. Flavors of light citrus flavors. Light to moderate mouthfeel. Sessionable but not too exciting.

solidfunk (3654) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Pretty decent can oí IPA though not the freshest you can get it, Iím sure. Pours cloudy orange with decent head. Piney hops. Thereís more on nose with this than there is in the finish which makes for a good session ale. Average carbonation. Can from Finger Lakes Bevvie center.

Can, BBOTMC. Clear dark golden with white head. Some soap, musk and faint cinnamon aroma, bitter, grainy undertones and malty taste. Light body, bitter, malty finish. Not IPA, but good nevertheless.
