COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

[bottle] Very orange, no head, and kind of flowery both in taste and smell. I enjoyed about 6 of these in one sitting. Was feeling pretty good near the end, and even 6 beers in, the taste was still very nice. This is a pretty hoppy beer though.

Hoppy and sweet. Good smooth mouthfeel. The hops are much more citrus than resin. It’s a bit tart for my taste, but otherwise, just my style.

Very nice well hopped finish but a full almost thick body. Good combination...I had this on tap the other night and was quite impressed.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2004 Middle of the road rating is indicative of the quality control problems with the bottled version of this brew (labelled American Pale Ale "Expedition Reserve"). Hmmm... cheesy marketing aside, when this brew is on -- everything is good. Lacing, palate, appeareance, and flavor (especially aftertaste) are solid... even a little addictive if you’re acclimated to Schlafly’s numerous near-miss beers. But when it’s off it’s really off. Flat, bland, and worth returning. That said, buy this beer. It’s the first bottled release that effectively reigns in the dominant yeast flavor of the "Schlafly" line of brew-hays without eliminating the rawness.

Bottle to glass. Pours a dark golden with a lasting, thick one finger head. Aroma is pine, citrus, grass. Taste is bitter, piney, with a citrus background. I can taste more and more lemons and orange zest as I drink it. Has a rich mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. The bitterness lingers. Very good. Only a notch below the AIPA special release.

Draft. Light caramel/amber color. Nicely balanced and not too hoppy. Floral on the back end an a dry finish. Another enjoyable Schlafly product. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hoppy without too much else. Good tasty beer. Bitering hops give off a grassy note and flavor.

Bottle. Pours a gorgeous Orange/gold decent head. Huge floral notes and citrus on the nose. Wonderful smell. Grapefruit flavor with a hint of pine. Solid APA.

trichoeg85 (34) - Sumrall, Mississippi, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass. Weak thin head dissipated quickly with minimal lacing. Citrus and honey aroma. Straw colored with significant hazing. Piney citrus taste with minimal malt sweetness. Overall an APA that struggles to identify itself.
