Wow. I've had a lot of schlafly beers over the years but this one certainly ranks near the top. Pours a clear golden with a thin white he'd that persists. Lots of one and some citrus on the nose. Flavor is pine and some bitterness. Crisp and Clem. Medium bodied. This is a really nice beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA (bottled October 14, 2013). Golden orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, fresh cut grass, and faint grapefruit. Taste is easily quaffable with juicy tangerine and pineapple, pine needles, and bitter grapefruit rind. Because the flavor is more juicy than bitter any lingering bitterness is minimal. A great, albeit balanced, IPA.

Pours a light golden color with a bright citrus aroma. Quite smooth with an adequate amount of carbonation. Drinks smooth with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A wonderful change of pace when looking for a different IPA beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
*12 oz. bottle* Look: Sunset orange body, 1 finger white head. Smell: Very citrus (Oranges, lemon peel), toasted cracker sweetness, bit of mango and a touch of tropical flowers. Taste: Mango, oranges, grapefruit, flowers, earthy leafiness, papaya, very solid malt backbone, semi dry mild bitter finish. Feel: Medium smooth body, mediocre carbonation. Overall: This is solid and also very tasty. I’m glad I tried this ale. This is balanced and enough hop flavor that it lands on what could be DIPA status. The bitter factor isn’t offensive. A nice stepping stone in quality IPAs. If you like exotic fruits/flower flavors in your beer, this is a go to. This beer is recommended.
