This is a very nice IPA, simple and balanced. Smoother and sweeter than its 100% galaxy competition like Tallgrass 8 Bit. Nicely done.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Wine Academy. Poured a clear medium density gold body with lots of rising effervescence and a smaller foamy bright white head that leaves some nice lace on my small Carton flute glass. Aroma is great, notes of syrupy hop resin, rotting citrus, orange, tropical fruits, oranges, breads, slight cat piss. Perfect body medium and syrupy with average to stronger carbonation that finshes dry with light bitterness. Flavor is very good but not as graet as the aroma. Notes of dry pineapple, yellow grapefurit rind, dry bread, some dry hop cones, older orange, some grass. This is a great IPA.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Straw yellow color with a massive head (from an admittedly aggressive pour). Aromas of citrus and tropical fruit and some hop dank. Taste is quite interesting. Smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Juicy quality to this beer at first with deep, non cloying sugars. I didn't get the pineapple (or any other tropical fruit) explicitly, but there is a tropical fruit quality to the sugars. Middle of the taste sees a moderate to strong amount of bitterness come through. A little jarring at first, but in the end showcases the beers complexity. A lot going on here and easy drinking for the ABV.

Wow...what a surprise from Schlafly. They made a phenomenal IPA with this one. Pours a golden/orange color with a good white head. Aroma of orange/citrus, some grapefruit. Taste is citrus, a balance of some bitterness and sweetness on the palate. This is a great IPA. Reminds me of some of my favorites. Well deserving.

This is quite the yellow IPA, with slow-rising bubbles, a frothy white head, and some tiny, nondescript particles floating in circulation. It has a neat, rustic, pleasantly grainy nose. The hop aroma is really interesting, with some slight citrus and tropical fruits adding a neat twist. Itís wicked in the mouth, packed with rich, fruity hop flavors (yes, Iím actually tasting pineapple here), delivered via a smooth, full, almost creamy mouthfeel. This is a very unique beer in nearly every respect. Itís almost unlike any IPA Iíve ever had, yet itís still very drinkable and satisfying. No, you donít get any of your stereotypical hop flavor (no pine, no resin, no green herbalness). Instead you get something out of this world - and Iím really impressed! Full and satisfying, it has a great malt flavor, a thick hop presence, and a great bitter bite, all finishing with a delicious, musky fruity sweetness. Get yourself a mouth full of this!

Man this was good. On tap at the Mexican Food Factory. Aroma is tropical fruits: lime, papaya, and apricot. Pours bright amber with a small head. Taste is nice and dank with apricot, resin, papaya, and citrus. A lot of flavors going on at once but by no means muddled. This is a fantastic drink.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich golden and orange coloured body with a dense, three centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of pungent grapefruit, pineapple, passionfruit and resinous hop notes - with some great scents throughout. Medium to Slightly-Full-Bodied; Strong resinous and piney hop flavour at first with a quite large malt backbone then showing some slightly sweet notes of honey and candy sugar, all fading to a very nice pineapple flavour. Aftertaste shows a great balance, but itís heaviness shows more alcohol and sugars than hops. Overall, a great single origin IPA with a nice set of flavours and some depth from the malt and sugars. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia, sampled after a hockey game on 30-October-2013 - Thanks Kevin!
