You probably don't need me to tell you to try a beer. Heck, you probably don't need me to tell you to try this beer. But in case your hophead has been in the clouds over the past couple of weeks, let me be the bearer of glad tidings: The Schlafly American IPA is back.

This year's edition is slightly different from last year's: The ABV is lower, 7.2%, and the flavor has a stronger hop profile. It's a delicious beer: bitter, yes, but not overwhelmingly so (it's not an imperial IPA, after all), with definite citrus notes.

And that color! I could stare at that picture all morning -- which I'll probably have to do, since it's still too early for me, even, to pour another.
