Paid $10.99 for a growler at DEP in Fort. Thomas, KY...
First note is that Schlafly makes some killer special release beers and this one is pretty special. The beer pours a clear golden base with huge white, organic fluffy head, and thick lacing on the glass. Smell great, reminds me of the Victory's Headwaters PA; very bright and floral hops, with a touch of citrus-like sweetness.
The brewer notes pineapple as the fruit element and it is abundant yet very complimentary to the single Tasmanian hop used, it comes off as an extremely bold yet simple flavor. It's extremely light on the mouth and is a perfect session beer.
Final Thought: This was a huge surprise, it's refreshingly simple and oozes of quality, one of the best beers I've had in my ten years of sampling craft beers, well done!

Pours a hazy, pale orange color body with a thick, white, three finger head. Light streams of carbonation and plenty of lacing.
A pleasant medley of floral and tropical fruit stimulate the nose. Very sweet citrus notes; pineapple, mango, and starfruit. Light caramel malt.
Sweetness hits you like a ton of bricks, it's that potent. Luckily, the bitter bite is swift and unforgiving, lending earthy balance. Pineapple, tangerine, and mango rock the flavor profile upfront while grass and herb on the back. Clean finish with only the faintest hint of alcohol.
Fairly light body for the style. Smooth and easy to drink with a sweet finish.
A fantastic IPA that is beautifully balanced, easy to drink despite a rather heavy bite, and 100% enjoyable. Well worth your a slot in your fridge!

4.05/5 rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a hazy lemongrass with a frothy head that leaves a nice dotty pattern behind
Smell: Lemon, pineapple and grassy tones
Taste: A touch bready, with the hops taking over; the pineapple is slightly rotting, with lemon, passion fruit and a grassy, Germanic tone, as well; there is also a vinous, white wine character, though the finish is dominated by the hops
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: A surprisingly austere Germanic influence with a vinous element that makes this a rather unique IPA
