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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip. Hazy amber golden with sticky white head and lacing. Huge aggressive piney resin hop aroma with a big maltyness. Its a bot over aggressively sharp for my liking...
Taste is piney resin hop up front but finishes with a nice sweet fruity hop flavor. At first its too much but really finishes nice. Really smooth drinker, dry, and quenching. Nice IPA..on the border with a DIPA, but a really nice mid-coast IPA - a nice blend of sharp hops and sweet hops...

Bottle poured into a beer stein

Big, thick foamy four finger cap that settles down with plenty of lacings on the glass . Bronze, peach in color. No visible carbonation.

Smell of grapefruit , citrusy hops with a hint of pine

Hops! Citrus with a grapefruit essence. Crisp hoppy aftertaste .

Light, medium light mouthfeel. Bitterness lingers.

Wanted an iPa tonight and I picked a winner. Nice hoppy bite and tang with plenty of citrus. Very good iPa that I would enjoy again.
