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.

Multiple 12oz bottles, bottle date 10/08/12, poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint

where do we start, i first had this years batch of awesomeness on tap at Country Boy Brewing for the Schlafly Event that also had the Black IPA(which was stellar too). The look of this beer is nice golden color, quite a few shades lighter than your standard IPA but in this SMaSH style beer it works perfectly for later on when you have a sip. The golden beer is topped off with a nice two finger high thick froth of head. After seeing such a clear beer, you tend to lean in for a smell and boy what a beautiful aroma from the wonderful Australian hop known as Galaxy. This beer emits aromas of grapefruit, citrus and some wild flower. The similarities it shares with a hop like Citra are as evident as the differences. The tastes that accompany the aromas are very similar except for a bit of the sweet from the 2 row malt. The bite from the hops is a very smooth bite with no rough edges. There is an apricot to almost grapefruit flavor left after the final sip that is all Galaxy, highlighting again why this beer is so good. The simplicity of it all worked better than most would have expected. The mouthfeel is spot on, not too much carbonation to increase the bitter but definitely enough to hold to style. The medium body is perfect for this as to not draw anything away from the hops. Overall, this beer is great and available and affordable. This is not a super rare beer or over hyped but it can stand up to a lot of overhyped IPA's out there. Thanks Schlafly for a great follow up to American IPA this year.

I've had this one a handful of times, once on draft, but mostly bottled. Reviewing based off a bottle poured into a nonic glass.

A: Pours a hazy golden color with over a finger of white foamy head that reduces quickly and leaves a fair amount of lacing.
S: Wafting of citrus, slight pine, and almost a sugar candy. I'm intrigued by this one.
T: Similar to aroma - lots of mango and pineapple, pine to tone down the sweetness. There's a sweetness that I can't place my finger on, but it becomes dominant near the end and follows through the after taste.
M: Carbed well, leaves an ever so slightly dry after taste, but mainly a sweet taste that lingers.
O: Love this beer, it offers a great unique twist to a common style that certainly helps it stand out.

Pours golden orange. Nice 2 inch head. Fantastic hoppy citrusy smell. Loads of orange and tangerine. The taste is incredible. Loads of citrus. Loads of hops. Mouthfeel is full, very carbonated. Overall, this is by far my favorite beer of 2012. I can drink this for breakfast every day. You must buy this beer. If you don't, you will regret it.

Rich sand slightly dark golden hue. Thin cover of foam just coats the top of this brew. Brussels lacing. I can see micro sized bits of hops suspended within this unfiltered ale. Intense vegetal aroma with hints of pineapple,mango,and unripened tomato vines. The flavor while bitter is not as intense as the aroma. The flavor is a blend of grapefruit and vegetal,earthy hops. There's a prickly bitterness on the tongue and an intensely bitter,vegetal aftertaste. I like bitter IPA's but Galaxy hops aren't my thing.
