4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from my local. Pours a cloudy dark orang with a half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is light bitter and sweet. Tropical and citrus fruits dominate. Seriously digging this beer. Schlafly needs to rebrand this one and make it year round.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I guess I missed this at RBSG, thanks to Peter for sending me a bottle. Nose is all sorts of tropical mango and tangerine with a vanilla note. pour is a slightly hazy yellow with a medium white head that dissipated pretty quickly leaving a film a white on the beer. Taste is reminiscent of a tangerine creamsicle with some grassy notes. I actually really like this, but it could be due to the other beers I have had already. Seems the malt and hops are somewhat fighting each other though. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, thanks to phaleslu, shared with jtclockwork. Hazy orange golden color. Thin off-white head. Decent lace. Medium to bigger body, smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Caramel malt, kind of syrupy, sweet bready taste, some corn. Light spicy. OK IPA for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color of this beer is a hazy golden with lots of sediment floating throughout and with a small white head, and the aroma blends resin, floral, and citrus hops with light malts. The taste is mildly bitter, mildly sweet, and a touch sour; the palate fuses a slightly sticky texture, medium-full body, soft carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle as a bonus from an in-person STL trade. Thanks again, Brandon! Pours a somewhat cloudy (cloudy because of the amount of perfectly suspended sediment that never really settles) bright gold with a finger of white head that settles into a ring and a little film, and leaves spots of lace in the glass. Aroma of piney, citrusy hops, soap, grass, straw, pale and sweet malts, and sugars. Flavor of sweet malts and sugars, sweet citrus, grass, straw, cereal, and light florals. Light-bodied, with a sweet, malty, slightly resinous mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A lot of sweetness to balance the bitter hop character. I liked this ’Cream IPA’ more than I thought I would.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good accessible IPA for the masses and the seasoned drinker of craft brews. Aroma is not as present as other beers of the class. Delicately acidic at first. Then a short taste of light grains, followed by a balanced hoppy note of sweet citrus. This beer is not bold, but it is refreshing. It finishes clean and leaves me wanting more. I will stock for guest?s as long as its available.
