BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

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.

Pours copper with nice head. Nice Hoppy smell. Great taste and enjoyed throughout. A bit of a lingering aftertaste but not tragic. Overall, very nice beer, would have again.

Bottled with love on 02/23/2015

Gold with some suspended sediment and topped by a beautifully thick and creamy off-white head. Rings of webby lacing coat the glass and a bubbly layer is a permanent fixture on the surface. Smells like a handful of fresh resinous hops: sticky, spicy pine, herbal pungency, dank weed, and a hint of grapefruit. Flavor is equally hoppy, but with an added grainy note. Resinous pine, citrus rind, melon, and general green hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied, frothy mouthfeel. Oh snap, this is great stuff. Right up my hop alley.
