Bottle (dated 12 11 12). Clear yellow pour with a nice froth of white foam and sheets of lacing. Aroma is semi-floral with some pine and a grainy malt backbone. Taste is heavy with sweet malt and grain with some pine bitterness. Lingering bitterness with light mouthfeel. Okay.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by phaleslu. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy west coast citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle The IPA pours a clear, light golden color with a small head and some lacing. Flavors of citrus and pineapple as advertised from the hops. There is also a lemongrass taste. This is a different taste for IPAs. The taste is richer with some sweetness. The carbonation was average. While watching bowl games this is a unique experience. The finish has a lingering bitterness that sticks to the top of your mouth.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle a medium golden color with a nice white head. Smells of slight pine, mango, tangerine, and grape fruit. Tastes very similar to its smell but with a bit of pineapple. Almost too easy to drink.

12 oz bottle to snifter (thanks phaleslu). Looks solid; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells and tastes good; nice, grassy hops. Nice on the palate too. A great example of the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from a buddy in STL. Thanks, Tim! Pours a cloudy, somewhat pale orange-yellow with a finger of white head that dissipates, leaving an uneven cap and streaks of lace. Aroma of orange and lemon citrus, pineapple, mango, and papaya - damn - with a bit of sweet malt. Flavor of orange, mango, pineapple, oils, sweet malts, and pine. Light-medium bodied, with a juicy, oily mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. It must be said: Schlafly is one of the top IPA brewers in the country and nobody talks about them as such.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This poured a bright lighter orange color with an off white head. Aroma was straigh galaxy hops, lots of tropical fruit, peaches and mangos even. Flavor was much the same, even brighter, very very light on the palate and extremelt drinkable. PRetty much hopwater. Great Great Stuf.
