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.

12 oz can into a pint glass. A: Pours a golden amber color with good clarity. The head poured is ragged and downright ugly - it has a soapy-looking texture and fades away pathetically. Sheís not a looker, thatís for damn sure. S: Now this is better. The hops win out here, providing notes of grapefruit, pine, lemongrass, and even some tropical fruit touches. Maltiness doesnít really come through, but I donít care about that. T: A combination of lemongrass and pine needles open things up, changing to a slightly tropical tone in the middle. There isnít much of a finish due to the dryness. All the carbonation creates an illusion of bitterness on the palate, but when given the chance to calm down, it reveals a nice flavor-to-bitterness ratio, with even a negligible hint of flavor layering. M: Dry, dry, dry. It manages to avoid a watery pratfall, though, because of the lingering resin qualities. On the other hand, itís ridiculously fizzy - which makes the brew seem more bitter than it is, among other things. O: It doesnít make me hard the way Lagunitas DayTime did, but thatís because Centennial is pretty low down on my list of preferred hops. Still a successful low-alcohol hop vessel, though.

Can. When it comes to IPAs, I prefer Session and White ones. This one is pretty good. Golden in color with a medium head. Aroma is very mild in the hoppy department, not slap you in the face strong which is true of the taste also. Usually hoppy flavor.

Pours a clear orange color with a big white head that fades to nothing. Aroma of citrus hops with a strong malt presence. Pretty good but nothing monumental.

I had this at Global Brew. I thought this was a typical IPA, a little hoppy, smooth flavor. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Can). One of the selections for the 2015 St Ceario festival. New packaging from photo shown on RB site. Decent IPA but hard to stand out amongst the many in this class. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice for the hot weather. The hops give it an added dryness from regular hot weather type beers. Hoppy aroma and a hoppy flavor. Very easy drinking and refreshing.

Pint on tap. Foggy orange-caramel color with a thin film of foam. Nose is resin and green herb with some caramel and citrus underneath. Tastes the same. Light-medium body has a nice balance and medium carbonation.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 17, 2015
Hazy orange to copper pour with a one finger, creamy to soapy off white head. Aroma is planty, citrus, grass, fruity esters, toast and a little biscuit. Flavor is toasty, citrus, grassy, biscuit, fruity esters and a little toffee. Light body, medium to heavy, sharp carbonation. Good stuff, lots of flavor for the ABV, somewhere between American IPA and English IPA in character.
