Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our American IPA gets its bold hop flavor from 100% American hops and its deep gold and full body from pale and crystal malted barley. A blend of Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hop varietals imparts AIPA with bitterness and prominent aromas of citrus and fruit. Our brewers select these hops on an annual pilgrimage to the hop farms of Pacific Northwest.

IPAs (India Pale Ales) were first brewed in England during the late 1700s for export overseas to British soldiers in India. To keep their beer from spoiling during the long voyage, English brewers fortified their traditional pale ale recipes with natural preservatives: more malted barley, for a higher alcohol content, and more hops. In recent decades, with growing appreciation for highly hopped beers, American craft brewers have revived the style, embraced it, and incorporated new hop varieties. Our Special Release IPAs further those traditions and showcase the distinctions of hops from different hemispheres.

Sampled at the Good Pie, St. Louis MO.
What a delicious suprise. An IPA unlike any I've ever had before. The hop profile is suprisingly unique...
A: Beautiful golden hue typical of an IPA
S: So pungent and delicious, typical citrusy hops, touches of pine, caramel, and mint.
T: This is where the beer shines. Great malt backbone, but the hops are unbelieveable. Minty, piney, bubblegum, fresh squeezed citrus, and a hand full of other flavors I can't quite put my finger on.
M: Typical of an IPA, wish it was just a touch more "creamy" to match that hop profile.
D: Off the charts...I could sip on this all night long.

Home Run for Schlafly. I wish this was in bottles so others across the country could get a taste of this. Well done.
