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.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Holy carp this is the PALEST IPA I have ever seen! Fluffy white head, three fingers deep sitting on top of a crystal clear nearly straw yellow pilsner like body. I am talking mirror like reflection in this thing, There is no rising carbonation on this at all, with speckled lacing.

Woah what's that nose!?! Dank apricot.. did I just say that? Yes I did.. in the same sentence. Fresh juicy hop apricot and a faint earth dankness together. Woah that is a combination that I have never had the joy of smelling.. It's a great combination. Fruity but not flakey... Dense but not gritty soil stuck in your teeth.. love where this is going.

Schlafly brings the bread and the goods on the palate. Rich apricot and malt backbone, it's practically baked bread with apricot fruit in it. A real great feel with a classic bread softness, I feel like dried fruit apricot is being pulled out of my teeth and my gums. Dry and resinous, with a thick finish but not much large sweetness which makes it real nice. Feels like fruit/beer territory, the fruit hop angle on this is large, as if they threw fruit in the boil. FRUIT FRUIT FRUIT and it's all HOPS baby.

Schlafly you just keep doing it right... at 7.2 this is going down fast like nothing. It feels even session-able which is a scary downright immoral thing to say. Oh man this is GOOD! You may get a different hop angle, one friend calls pine, the bottle calls citrus, I call apricot blast, either way.. it's pure friggin win.

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.

Appearance - Opaque orange straw like color

Smell - dried fruit, bread, lemon zest, with a nice malty finish

Taste - lots of bittering hops up front followed by a tart grapefruit finish

mouthfeel - kind a dry finish for me

Overall - this TIPA was a fun beer to try again soon, hopefully.
