12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Hazy honey brown pour with a nice head that unfortunately fades fast. Aroma of floral hops and honey. Flavor: nice bite of floral and citrus hops with a hint of honey on the finish. It is medium bodied and smooth on the palate with fine-bubbled carbonation. Overall: great, sturdy APA.

Excellent light amber flavor, hoppy and my kind of bitterness! Somewhat thin head, but a good American Pale Ale. Good one Schlafly!

Golden amber in color with a foamy white head that leaves a generous amount of lacing down the glass. Big inviting citrus hop hit in the aroma. Big hit of citrus hops are flowery and sweet. Long bitter finish with subtle malty notes. Crisp.

It’s the Todd show staring DHAPA. From a wickedly cold icy tomb rises a mountainous froth that just sits there. A waxy apricot color and superb lacing. Strong aromas of fresh crispy citrus rind but it dissipates after a while. Full nectar with mellow carbonation creating a dense milky texture. A fat caramel malt backbone delivers a fresh load of snappy citrus with a bit of biscuiting. Beautifully balanced with a snappy finish. A really tasty brew.
