Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Wow! What a fun beer to savor in the fall or winter weather. I picked up this sixer from one of my local stores.

The beer pours an off white head, and the body is as pale as a Bud or Coors Original. The head retains well, and a lace remniscent of fine lingerie remains. Carbonation is friendly, but not excessive like a cola.

As for how it feels, it feels like a standard IPA. Folks, you know you're drinking beer.

Taste: Pineapple at the start, with a sharp bite right after. Beechwood follows, and next a hint of pine. At the finish, a floral hop kisses you goodbye.

Overall, this is a grand beer. This changed my mind about the Schlafly brewery once and for all. I've got to explore more my fellow BAs. Time's a wasting! My next haul will have Schlafly!
