Review taken from notes October 2013
12 oz brown bottle with nice simple Schlafly logos and labels. Really nice looking bottling as usual from these guys. Poured into a standard American pint glass.
A - bright glowing yellow golden with a slight hint of orange throughout. White head pours nice and forms a nice ring of lace leaving trails of stick behind.
S - fruity citrus aromas galore of juicy orange and pineapple fruity hop whiffs. A hint of hop spice and light malt toward the back end with more fruit goodness coming in the finishing whiffs of the nose.
T - juicy fruit filled notes nearly gush my palate. Orange, and pineapple with loads of citrusy hops. The malt is on the light side but still finds itself balancing nicely in what's a pretty sturdy bitterness in the finish. Fresh fruity citrus, a big bitterness but still juicy and refreshing flavor.
M - medium bodied and a very good thickness to the mouthfeel. Bitter but exactly the way an ipa should be.
O - Tasmanian ipa is a surprise to me. I'm up and down with Schlafly. While some of their stuff I find awesome I also find some to be lacking an it factor. But in the case of Tasmanian IPA they nailed it. Galaxy hops are some of my favorite while I'm also a firm believer in single hop brews and this brewery knocked this out of the park and in brilliant fashion. I will most definitely be drinking this again!
