3.94/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Golden amber color with accents strong on the amber side. Finger of head on the pour which was present while drinking. Some sticky lacing left behind at each level.
Smell: Pretty subtle aroma. Biggest player is some juicy, soapy, tropical fruity aromas. Slight spices with some really mild, sweet, bready malt tones. Medium bodied bitterness warms up with the beer.
Taste: Big juicy light fruits jump the palate with tones of mangos, kiwiws, oranges, and straw. Mild soap and prairie grass back it up. Bitterness is there but this brew certainly has a soft, sweet presence on the palate.
Mouthfeel: One word came to mind drinking this, crushable. Wouldn't be hard to put the sixer of this down in one night with how easy going it is on the palate. Tons of fruity sweetness if left behind with each drink. Carbonation is mild which adds to the easy going nature here.
Overall: Tasty stuff. One of the best offerings from I've had from Schlafly to date. Gotta say the Amarillo hops win out over the Centennial and Simcoe. Fruity, sweet, easy going.

3.63/5 rDev -11%

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
Pours a hazy, deep golden color. Small head without much lacing.
Smells a little malty, which is odd. Maybe even a little sour. Not a whole lot of citrus, but it is here.
Taste is pretty hop forward at first, but falls of and a slight maltiness takes over. Aftertaste of hops with a little sweetness. Not much hoppy citrus, which I think is odd for an American style IPA.
Nice feel on the mouth. A little thick and malty. Not as crisp or light as most IPAs.
Good beer. Easy to drink.
