Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Holy carp this is the PALEST IPA I have ever seen! Fluffy white head, three fingers deep sitting on top of a crystal clear nearly straw yellow pilsner like body. I am talking mirror like reflection in this thing, There is no rising carbonation on this at all, with speckled lacing.
Woah what's that nose!?! Dank apricot.. did I just say that? Yes I did.. in the same sentence. Fresh juicy hop apricot and a faint earth dankness together. Woah that is a combination that I have never had the joy of smelling.. It's a great combination. Fruity but not flakey... Dense but not gritty soil stuck in your teeth.. love where this is going.
Schlafly brings the bread and the goods on the palate. Rich apricot and malt backbone, it's practically baked bread with apricot fruit in it. A real great feel with a classic bread softness, I feel like dried fruit apricot is being pulled out of my teeth and my gums. Dry and resinous, with a thick finish but not much large sweetness which makes it real nice. Feels like fruit/beer territory, the fruit hop angle on this is large, as if they threw fruit in the boil. FRUIT FRUIT FRUIT and it's all HOPS baby.
Schlafly you just keep doing it right... at 7.2 this is going down fast like nothing. It feels even session-able which is a scary downright immoral thing to say. Oh man this is GOOD! You may get a different hop angle, one friend calls pine, the bottle calls citrus, I call apricot blast, either way.. it's pure friggin win.
