I must admit that Schlafly has not done a lot to impress me over the years. As a result, I passed by Tasmanian IPA when I saw it at the liquor store. Only when I had it at a brewfest was I impressed, and consequently bought a six pack. From one of those bottles, I write this review.
From the bottle into a pint glass, the beer was a light straw color with a white head. It demonstrated generalized lacing and retention on the sides of the glass. The aroma was a combination of citrus and peach skin. The aroma was not overpowering, but well-balanced. In the initial taste, one detects peach, pine, and a mild resin flavor. The malt backbone is well disguised but there is a generalized sweetness that compensates for a lack of maltiness. In the aftertaste, the peach and citrus continues, but the resin comes to the forefront making this one a little more bitter. The linger of the hop afterbite is a little suprising because the beer runs a little this. Easily, this is the best thing Schlafly makes and probably a top ten single IPA for me.
