Cask. Medium off-white head atop lightly hazed amber body, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit/orange, some pine. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pine/lemon, light bread. Medium body, some resin, very drinkable. I like hop bombs but this does mid-level hoppiness superbly.

hopscotch (9090) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2007 Draft... This beer rocks!... Crystal clear, deep golden ale with a large, frothy, white head. Decent retention. Cirrus lacework. The aroma is very hoppy. Jalapeno, white and black pepper. Totally unbalanced, in a great, heavily bitter way. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, astringent finish. Terrific, world class IPA!

Growler acquired in trade with xmarcnolanx (thanks!). Poured a medium and clear orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of floral hopes, pine, and citrus. Nice and hoppy! Tastes of pine, grapefruit, floral hops, and some caramel. A very nice IPA!

Pint from the first cask of Hop Harvest released in 2010, last night at Patís Bar and Grill in the Dogtown neighborhood of St. Louis. Pours a hazy orange-gold color with a thick, just barely off-white head that sticks all over the glass. The hops explode out of the glass as you start to bring it up, which is very nice- but there isnít much else to the aroma. Those hops give the nose some earth, pine, pepper, and citrus characteristics, though. The flavor could also be described the same way- fresh hops, earth, pine, pepper, and citrus. Light-bodied, with a piney, earthy mouthfeel and low carbonation because of the cask conditioning. This is a nice IPA that almost reminds me a of a heavily dry hopped APA. The Schlafly guy who tapped this said it would show up at a few more bars this fall and at their Hop in the City event, so be sure to go find it while you can because they didnít make much.

BBB63 (6016) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2003
At Hop in the City: Hazy orange hue with little head or lace. Very apricot and berry aroma with additional hints of wheat, yeast, light bready malt esters and some acidic tones. Taste starts with a grapefruit twang followed by nice malt balance. Minor bitterness on finish. Medium-bodied with a dry and soft mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff. Amazing considering that it was suppose to be even better last year according to other Ratebeerians at the event.

This rating was from the Hop In The City event where brews from the previous year were sampled (5 oz) by the attendees from kegs. This brew poured a large head of mostly lasting fine to large sized bubbbles that left behind a good lacing and a hazy light brown colored body. Its aroma was mildly hopped and its mouthfeel was biting. The flavor was hoppy.

Strykzone (4911) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2010
8 oz. glass at Bigeloís Bistro. Pour is light clear copper golden with the fastest moving carbonation bubbles I have ever seen. A soapy off white head. Aroma and flavor is wet grass and dry malt. Flavor was grassy and peppery with that malt. A very different beer than I am used to seeing from Schlafly. Tasty!

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2007 On tap at the brewpub. Poured a nice shade of orange with a white head. Aroma was Cascade hops - some floral, dry grapefruit and pine. Mouthfeel was full for an IPA with just a little carbonation. The taste was hoppy as expected. There is a little bit of malt around, but it is the hops that shine through. Lots of hops, but not overpowering - much of what was on the aroma. The finish had a tingling sensation with a mixture of the piney hops and the carbonation. A very nice version of the style. <P> rerate notes: The 2007 version is amazing. Lots of Simcoe coming through. Gentle, but assertive. Incredibly drinkable and no real flaws. The tap and cask are distinctively different, but both are wonderful. The cask has a fuller body and more pleasing harshness to the hop aspects. The tap version has an out-of-this-world hoppy aroma and dank as crap hop flavor. Best version yet.

Growler with big thanks to Jarrett. Super fresh and hoppy aroma. Tons of pine in there. Grapefruit. Nice white pillow head. Excellent. This needs to be bottled.
