finally, at long last...get to try this beer. picked up locally, bottled 1/9 so just over a month old. enjoyed from a schlafly flute.
a - brew pours a transparent straw yellow with a typical big foamy white bubbly yet somewhat creamy head. really nice streaky lacing as the head dissolved and attractive champagne like carbonation danced to the surface at a steady pace the duration of sipping the beer.
s - wow...i mean WOW. i've said fresh fruit before, but i almost feel like someone is switching a freshly ripped open perfectly ripe tangerine in front of my nose every time i take a sniff. this is far and away the most fruity and tropical smelling beer to hit my olfactory.
t - as the nose suggests, very tangerine and fresh fruit forward, but not as intense as the nose, but the smell is so in your face that you can't avoid sniffing it on every sip which really intensifies that odor.
m - super easy drinker, no bitterness at all. the hops here are for fruitiness.
o - overall, where has this been my whole life. schlafly was never really on my radar, but after a few huge winners from this brewery i need to explore more. this beer is a revalation and will be something i enjoy every time a new batch comes out, this is a MUST try for any ipa fan. you will not be disappointed.
