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.

finally, at long last...get to try this beer. picked up locally, bottled 1/9 so just over a month old. enjoyed from a schlafly flute.

a - brew pours a transparent straw yellow with a typical big foamy white bubbly yet somewhat creamy head. really nice streaky lacing as the head dissolved and attractive champagne like carbonation danced to the surface at a steady pace the duration of sipping the beer.

s - wow...i mean WOW. i've said fresh fruit before, but i almost feel like someone is switching a freshly ripped open perfectly ripe tangerine in front of my nose every time i take a sniff. this is far and away the most fruity and tropical smelling beer to hit my olfactory.

t - as the nose suggests, very tangerine and fresh fruit forward, but not as intense as the nose, but the smell is so in your face that you can't avoid sniffing it on every sip which really intensifies that odor.

m - super easy drinker, no bitterness at all. the hops here are for fruitiness.

o - overall, where has this been my whole life. schlafly was never really on my radar, but after a few huge winners from this brewery i need to explore more. this beer is a revalation and will be something i enjoy every time a new batch comes out, this is a MUST try for any ipa fan. you will not be disappointed.

Poured to a dense and full head with great retention and lacing, light tan color. Appearance was a clear and deep golden color. Aroma had strong citrus, fruit and grass notes with some herbal notes. Tastes nice and hoppy with some sweet and fruity characteristics mixed in. Also some floral and grain, almost woody, thrown in. Mouth feel was medium with a dry and biting aftertaste.

A - Pours a deep gold with a decent white head. Decent lacings.

S - Tons of fruit, namely apricot, mango, and pineapple. Under it all, a touch of pine and herbs. The smallest amount of biscuity malt.

T - More tropical fruit, but with a stronger malt back bone. The hops go through all the way leaving a nice bitter finish, but not overly so.

M - medium body, moderate carbonation. Nice and crisp.

O - I love this beer. The Galaxy hops bring a lovely tropical and citrus flavor to one of my favorite styles. I wish I could find it on the east coast.
