American IPA by Schlafly

$10.99 for 6pk  Available for a limited time 

 

 

Beer Style:  IPA

IPA or India Pale Ales are beers that focus on bitterness and hop profile. Originally made with extra hops to withstand long sailing trips, they have evolved into a "cult" beer style in the USA with many breweries producing them. This one is brewed with Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hops.

Appearance:  Light cooper in color, frothy head at start dissipates quickly

Aroma:  Pine, spice, grapefruit

Taste:  Caramel malt on start, tropical fruit, alcohol, then a dry lingering bitter finish that almost makes me pucker

Mouth-feel:  Some carbonation, fairly smooth and creamy until the dry finish

Overall:  This is a seasonal release from Schlafly and one of their best brews.

American IPA is incredibly fresh tasting and not very complex. Even though it clocks in at 7.5% it is also incredibly drinkable. Lots of good beers in this category, but American IPA is a classic.

 

Cheers,

Beer Guy
