UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 It is by far the best IPA I came across. Intense floral aroma sweet bitter taste and a perfect balance of malt and hop. Definitely a must try beer even if you are not an IPA fan. And if I haven’t said enough it’s as good as Pliny the elder if not better.

Draught taster served at Smoke and Barrel in Washington. Pretty tasty IPA, very balanced - not a hop bomb. Overall a very good beer.

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.

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.
