Exploding with hop flavor and aroma, this citrus/piney/floral ale has enough of a malt backbone to stand up to the intense bitterness.

A pretty good ipa. Descent aroma and a good hoppy flavor. Labor day beer drinking is good.

beer_rookie (445) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours an orange, maybe honey color. Very thick, but one finger head. Its very cloudy. Lots of lacing.

Aroma is incredible. Very piney. Very hoppy. Very citrusy. Also, a little mint. Smells like an IPA should.

Taste follows the nose. This is quite bitter. Very hoppy. Very citrusy. What more can I say?

Mouthfeel is medium. Its soft carbonation. The bitterness makes it a little less drinkable. Its finishes a little bitter. The high abv is not so noticeable.

Overall, if you like IPAs, then you should seek this out. Its very good. I really dont have anything more to add.

sawbuck (647) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Nice aroma of hops, some pine, and fresh grass. Mild orange color with an off white head. Rich sweet malt up front with some nice backbone. Resinous pine bitterness filters in and intensifies through finish. Slightly slick mouth feel. Finish is slightly heavy on bitterness but pleasant. Solid

I love a palate-eroding blast of resin as much as the next hophead, but sometimes I want an IPA that makes me marvel at its smoothness and complexity. Enter American IPA. Its no slouch with bitterness at 65 IBU and youll definitely notice the dank grass and wet pine notes from the American hops. Youll also notice how skillfully the caramel malt platform tames the citrus tones into juiciness and accents the floral character. Heres to hoping I come across Schlafly Tasmanian IPA. Soon.

Ibrew2or3 (8282) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2015
12oz bottle, courtesy of gregwilsonstl, pours with a slightly hazed deep gold body that has a thin copper hues and supports decent near white head. The aroma offers up grapefruit, orange pith and some thin soft citrus and tropical fruit juicy odors off in the background. The taste delivers a pleasing hoppy bite with bitter grapefruit and tangerine like citrus hops as well as some modest resiny pine hoppiness. Toward midway it pulls up thin juicy citrus and faintly tropical fruity notes that add a nice balance to the overall hop experience. Into the finish seems to lurk faint esters that are wrapped in bitter grapefruit and lime and pine hoppiness. Nice.

From a bottle. Pours a hazy gold with an off white head. Flavors of pine resin with some citrus notes. Bitter finish.

coachd (625) - Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Smells like a mixture of pine and citrus hops. Also has a yeasty stinky feet type of aroma that I didnt care for. That and the fact that the scent is not all that strong takes the aroma category down a few points. Looks unfiltered, pours a nice dark orange color with a very sticky white head. Tastes mildly bitter, very little malt to balance it out, with a bitter/soapy aftertaste. Palate is good with a strong aftertaste. Overall, not bad, but not as good as the rating says it is.

Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Taste is pine, citrus, bitter, hints of sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Schlafly American IPA finishes with a lingering bitterness.
