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.

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.

12oz can poured into a Bug Eddy glass. Darker than the picture here, funny. Basically put its a balanced IPA with good bit of malt but not enough to take away from the hops. Has some slightly sweet hops and low bitterness. And its under 5%. A perfect balance of hops and malts without malts being bad. And its sessionable. This would be a great float trip beer. Canned on April 4, so just about 3 weeks old.

Kita (975) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 21, 2013
On tap @ Brass Monkey, NY. Clear deep golden color with thin creamy white head, good lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of strong citrus and floral hops, grassy, biscuit malt and mild yeast. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt, following is citric and grassy sour, while finish is moderate bitter with long aftertaste. Full body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Pleasantly refreshing everyday IPA...

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.
