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

Robe dorée et opaque. Peu de mousse. Faibles arômes d?écorce d?agrumes et résines. Goût biscuit et marmelade. Final fruits confits. Plutôt courte en bouche.Une IPA correcte.

Bottled. To be fair my had some floaters in it so the appearance was not so great. However the taste was a nice bold hops. Dry after has a fruity orangy hops taste. Not much piney hops but very good IPA.

Throw in from a trade with gregwilsonstl. Pours a golden amber color with big fizzy head. Aromas of fruit and citrus peel and some piney notes. Flavors of tropical fruits and some piney hops.

Bottle at home late night. Yellow orange beer one finger head. Nose is tropical fruits and pine. Tastes of pine, resin, juicy fruit gum, banana, florals, light vanilla notes. Sweet fruity finish. Palate is creamy with hints of bitterness.

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

Pours an orange, maybe honey color. Very thick, but one finger head. It’s 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. It’s soft carbonation. The bitterness makes it a little less drinkable. It’s finishes a little bitter. The high abv is not so noticeable.

Overall, if you like IPAs, then you should seek this out. It’s very good. I really don’t have anything more to add.

sawbuck (725) - 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. It’s no slouch with bitterness at 65 IBU and you’ll definitely notice the dank grass and wet pine notes from the American hops. You’ll also notice how skillfully the caramel malt platform tames the citrus tones into juiciness and accents the floral character. Here’s to hoping I come across Schlafly Tasmanian IPA. Soon.

Ibrew2or3 (8607) - 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.
