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.

Glass: Tulip

Zounds. This IPA is so hop-delicious that I feel it's comparable to Zombie Dust (and yes, I know that is an "APA") in terms of intensity of taste and smell, but using an obviously different hop combination. The hop aromas and flavors are intense, but the malts still manage to peek through at times, which while not balanced, still says, "hey, we tried." For $11 a six-pack using an export hop, this also hits the price satisfaction point. One I'd get again without question, and am considering going back to my local store to snag the last sixer before someone else does (but I'm not that big of a jerk).

Pours a 2.5cm tall head of slightly off-white foam that has above average retention. The head gradually recedes to a thin cap of lace atop the body, thicker about the edges. Every inch of the glass is just coated with fine lacing, either an unbroken sheet or a complex mix of bizarre symbols and patterns. The body is a pale yellow-gold color, with light bringing out pale yellow hues. At about 75% opaque, the carbonation is still visible and appears fairly vigorous.

Aroma of passion fruit, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach juice, apricot, mild bitterness, and slight body odor (like a freshly sweaty, hopped armpit), on top of a backdrop of crackery, slightly sweet pale malts.

Front palate detects sweet fruit esters (pineapple, passion fruit, orange) contributed by the hops and yeast, with a background of cracker-like malt sweetness. Mid-palate is fruity with citrus (orange, grapefruit), stone (peach, apricot) and tropical (pineapple, passion fruit, mango) being the major factors, but there's also some moderate bitterness coming through as well. Back of palate picks up hop bitterness along with grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and passion fruit. Aftertaste of mild grain, slight biscuit, lingering bitterness and strong citrus (orange, grapefruit).

Beer is medium to medium-light in weight with carbonation of medium intensity, resulting in a beer with a slightly fizzy, then foamy mouthfeel. Somehow manages to avoid ever coming across as watery, closing with a flash of bitterness that reveals a semi-dry close, probably due to all the hop resins.
