Availability: Fall

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.

3.9/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy straw color with quite a bit of carbonation. About 3/4" of eggshell white head forms, which has good retention and lacing. Pretty good looking IPA.

Smell: I get some pale malt character initially, followed by a ton of dankness. Some tropical fruit comes through, but it really turns oniony for me. The dankness on the nose is definitely overdone for me.

Taste: Some pale malt sweetness starts out, followed by loads of hop flavor. Tropical fruit, and dankness follows. The finish is very dank with a bit of onion. Little to no bitterness. Fortunately the onion is not as strong in the flavor as it is in the smell, although I do pick a bit up.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light to medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation. Very nice. Overall, I thought this was pretty good. If the hop flavor was refined a bit, this could turn into something special, as I really enjoy a dank, fruity IPA. I had heard some great things about this beer and while I enjoyed it, I came away slightly underwhelmed. I definitely plan to revisit this as soon as I can though, and will re-review if I have a different take.

4.21/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
Pours a hazy, pale orange color body with a thick, white, three finger head. Light streams of carbonation and plenty of lacing.

Aroma:
A pleasant medley of floral and tropical fruit stimulate the nose. Very sweet citrus notes; pineapple, mango, and starfruit. Light caramel malt.

Taste:
Sweetness hits you like a ton of bricks, it's that potent. Luckily, the bitter bite is swift and unforgiving, lending earthy balance. Pineapple, tangerine, and mango rock the flavor profile upfront while grass and herb on the back. Clean finish with only the faintest hint of alcohol.

Mouthfeel:
Fairly light body for the style. Smooth and easy to drink with a sweet finish.

Overall:
A fantastic IPA that is beautifully balanced, easy to drink despite a rather heavy bite, and 100% enjoyable. Well worth your a slot in your fridge!

4.05/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy lemongrass with a frothy head that leaves a nice dotty pattern behind

Smell: Lemon, pineapple and grassy tones

Taste: A touch bready, with the hops taking over; the pineapple is slightly rotting, with lemon, passion fruit and a grassy, Germanic tone, as well; there is also a vinous, white wine character, though the finish is dominated by the hops

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A surprisingly austere Germanic influence with a vinous element that makes this a rather unique IPA
