Schlafly Export India Pale Ale

Schlafly beers are brewed by The Saint Louis Brewery of St. Louis, Missouri.  This is a special release beer for them.


This 7.2% ABV beer is an English-style IPA and it pours orange and dark golden to copper with a half-inch of thick, foamy head, off-white in color.  The aroma is aromatically yeasty, both fruits and esters, and with floral and light fruitiness from the hops, over a detectable caramel malt base.  The taste is light toasted caramel malt, with a zesty fruitiness.  It drinks crisp and moderately bitter.  The taste is lighter and more lively than the aroma indicates.  Nice.
