Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Megahertz on 10-12-2012

Our Tasmanian IPA is brewed with 100% Australian hops. The Tasmanian hop, Galaxy, is a strong, aromatic variety that is different from traditional strains of the Pacific Northwest. Our brewers developed a recipe that showcases the hop’s unique flavors of citrus and pineapple.

India Pale Ales (IPAs) 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.

Pour is a transparent pale golden color with a tight white head and big lacing. Nose is a good bit of mango with hits of caramel malts and a touch of grain presence. Taste is a bit less hop forward and has a touch of a metallic twang in the finish. Malts are up front, less grain, almost husky, and a bit messier. Still tropical fruit hops with a fair bit of bitterness in the aggressively carbonated finish.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: A nice orange color, but nothin prominent, definitely transparent, a nice finger of off white head at the top and a nice lacing around the glass.

S: A great nose on this brew, pineapple, mango, apricot, some lemon and orange, the nose was really nice and subtle on this one.

T: Almost excatly like the nose with some malt backbone to balance it off, nice and sweet but nothing over the top great flavors throuhgout.

M: A good amount of carbonation, medium bodie and somewhat sticky.

O: A fantastic beer, Loved all the flavors on this one and the super well balanced of it as well, drinking this was like biting into a tropical starburst, super good.

Pours a dark straw color with a two finger white head. Aroma is citrus fruit with orange and sweet melon. Taste follows the nose with a bitterness to balance the sweet fruit. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall a nice ipa from a sometimes underrated brewery.

Poured a nice head out of bottle. A nice fruity ipa, little citrus, very smooth tasting compared to other IPAs. Need to have this out of tap! Damn good!

I usually like the herbal, funky IPAs. This was pure citrus - and one of the best IPAs I have ever had.

Top class ipa. Pineapple citrus flavors are delicious and balanced out so perfectly by a nice earthy hop finish. Glad I made the trip to pick up a sixer, just wish I got way more

Had my first one at World of Beer (bottle). And liked it. Picked up a 6er at my local liquor store. Pours a slightly hazy straw color. Nice frothy head. Big citrusy aroma. Big citrusy taste! Decent amount of lacing in my tulip. Wow, I'm impressed, not your average IPA. Nice bitter edge on it as well. This is a pleasant surprise. Very drinkable! The way I see it...if I'm eager to drink another...its a keeper.

This is my favorite beer from the schlafly family to date. Pours a milky light golden hue with heavy frothy head. Notes of light hops and heavy citrus on the nose. The beer is smooth on the palate, balanced with citrus, light hop and some earth. I would have desired a stronger hop bite especially on the finish. A solid keeper

Pours a hazy golden yellow with an inch or so of thin head that dissipates rather quick. Taste is pleasant and citrusy with less bitterness than expected. Overall very good and probably slightly superior to Sierra Nevada's Boomerang IPA, which uses the same Australian hops (although Boomerang is still pretty darn good).

At first pour this was a cloudy gold rapidly forming inch and a half head of white aromatic foaminess. My first impression was heavily floral and grapefruit like but upon further review its more pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is citrusy with bitters but not as bitter as I would have expected from the aroma. Mouth feel is carbonated but far smoother than I expected.

A: Golden pour with a bit of an orange tinge. Finger's-worth of soapy, off-white, quickly-dissipating head.

S: Beautiful. Extremely citrus and fruity: Pineapple, mango, apricot

T: Bright and strong carbonation. Fairly malty, followed by a wonderful, juicy burst of pineapple and mango, ending with slightly bitter apricot and a touch of hop bitterness to dry it up. Much more fruit than bitterness.

M: Prominent carbonation and a smooth, malty backbone. Sticky fruit.

O: Easily one of my favorites of the style, although it leans a bit more toward the malty/fruity side. Incredible blast of fruit. Long live the Galaxy! This is one of the best things about coming back to the Midwest.

A buddy of mine got me their coffee stout fresh from the brewery in St. Louis this weekend, and I've tried their Americsn IPA Always impressed. Needless to say, each new one I have the pleasure of trying makes these guys earn my respect as a casual beer Connoisseur.

This beer is excellent if you're looking for something that offers powerful hoppy taste, pine, grapefruitish aroma, and drinkability (I mean almost dangerously drinkable). This would pair great with a BBQ on a nice summers eve. Mouthfeel is soft I guess you could say? Not overwhelming at all honestly perfect. She has a pineapple taste upfront imo. Very hopping, I mean wow. Loved it. Would do it all again. Unique take of an ipa from what I've previoust tried. I strongly recommend if you have the option.

This is a completely clear, golden brew. The head is white and frothy, tall, and lasting. Fresh hop smell...pine, wood, wine-casks, and a distant malt. Flavorful. Hops, bitterness and great balance. Not much warming for the ABV. The body is full and firm. Nice, clean, and very, very hoppy. Great brew.

Poured into nonic glass from 12 oz bottle. Pale golden hazy appearance w/pure white 1/2" head which lasted to the last drop. Nice lacing on glass. Very skunky grapefruit/citrus aroma and flavor which is nicely balanced by the malt. Medium body, just the right amount of carbonation. Excellent IPA. Well done St Louis Brewery!

Pours hazed golden yellow with a thin head that settles and stays. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of citrus - grapefruit and orange/tangerine.

The taste is of juicy grapefruit backed by a cracker-like bread. Bitter bite in the finish. Alcohol is very well-covered.

It has a firm medium body, that could be chewier, but I'm more than satisfied with it.

A juicy, citric, well-hopped IPA!

The smell is mildew. The taste wasnt the worst, but if you have a working nose, I doubt you can drink this unless you like cleaning basements. And drinking the remnants

This is the kind of IPA that many breweries would sell as a $10-$13 4-pack or $9 bomber. Instead, Schlafly packages this as a regular (though "limited edition") 6-pack, for a more-than-reasonable $10.99. In 12 years of beer nerdom, I cannot say I've seen a better value. This is like getting a brand new Stingray for the price of a 2-year-old, six-cylinder Camaro. One of the breweries (and beers) that makes it good to live in this part of the country.
