Perfect IPA in my book. One of the few beers that I take a sip of and say "wow, thats just right". Great dry hop taste. Very smooth. Lots of grapefruit and pine but very smooth. This is what I think of when it is 90+ degrees and I want a nice hoppy beer. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2012
This one has a perfect level of hoppiness to it. There is an initial boldness to the hops that quickly mellows out to a nice and refreshing aftertaste. Nimrod979 (212) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2012
This one has been sitting around for awhile. I hope that doesn’t affect the taste.
Appearance - Fairly clear. Golden-orange in color. Short lived one finger white head. Little bit of lacing here and there.
Aroma - Citrusy, floral and piney hops. Mostly orange and grapefruit followed by some biscuity malted barley.
Taste - Starts with a citrusy sweetness before giving way to citrus and piney bitterness. Dry biscuity malt comes in before finishing slightly bitter and dry again.
Mouthfeel - Smooth, very drinkable. Lighter side of a medium body. Little high on the carbonation but it works here. Very balanced with the malts and the bitterness from the hops.. Pretty well done beer. I think it would benefit from being a little more fresh though. edgallow (4640) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 31, 2012
12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of malt and citrus. Taste is malts and nice citrus hops.

Aroma: high pitch dry hop character, very aromatic , bold , crisp. Great hop aroma expose. 8-
Appearance: amber with gentle haze. Medium , bright white top. Sparse lace.3+
Flavor/Palate: citrus, dry walls frontal hints of pineapple, mango, lemon. Very nice straight shooting IPA. Lighter body but never felt empty. Very well brewed , ultra drinkable IPA.
Bottle. Nice shiny pour of bright orange and a light airy head. The aroma is citric and fruity, and the beer drinks with a nice acidic bite. Tangy, crisp, and cloying, this would go great with some nice spicy food. (#4437, 1/8/2011) Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Thanks to phaleslu for sending this bottle out my way. Served in a snifter.
Pours a clear medium apricot with a two-finger white head. Nice retention and plenty of lacing on the way down. Nose carries some bright citrus notes plus a bit of a tropical character. Nice orange and tangerine to go along with a bit of mango. The hop character isn’t as strong in the flavor, but there’s a nice bitterness to the finish. Fairly dry after a light body. All around this is very well done. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011

From the tap at the Bottleworks in St. Louis. Lot of floral and fruit flavors. Smooth and extremely drinkable. Schaflly’s best beer, hands down. Very good from the bottle as well. bigirishphan (106) - Peoria Heights, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Easily one of the most refreshing ipa’s I’ve tried. Pours bright golden with awesome lacing. I got the citrus, piney, and hops but missed the caramel most talked about. Lovely!
