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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours a dark gold with a 1 inch white head. Nice lacing all the way down the glass

S - This smells delicious. Tropical and floral. Quite a bit of pineapple comes through, and a bit of citrus. But, the pineapple is really strong.

T - Taste follows the smell. Sweet and fruity. Lots of pineapple and floral notes, and slightly bitter at the back of the mouth.

M - Medium bodied, well carbonated. Pretty crisp and slightly sticky.

O - This is definitely a really good IPA. The hops create a wonderful tropical and floral aroma and taste. Would definitely drink again.

The beer comes in a hazy bright marihold with tinges of orange and green.

The aroma has a beautiful tropical and citrus aroma. A wonderful single hopped Galaxy aroma of guava in the front, with tart kiwi juicy sweet oranges, nectarine, dried mango. Very fruit forward gorgeous aroma that actually smells of “real” fruit.

The flavor follows with that juicy fruitiness in the front of guava and fleshy grapefruit. Then onto bitter pineapple, guava, mango then onto a light breadiness and also a bit of grainy flavor. The finish is very bitter of grapefruit peel and pith. Along with a piney resinous bitter as well.

A well made IPA that showcases a fantastic hop that I hope to see more of.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Very smooth, optimal carbonation, bitterness, with a moderate finely bubbled froth/head. Not too malty either which is surprising given that it's a 7,2%. Doesn't have the typical industrial hops firebombing approach like most of the hispter microbrewed IPA:s that taste more like smoking a cigarette than drinking a beer either.

Considering 'the notes' of citrus and pineapple I'd say it looks, tastes, and smells like a meld of a good German style Hefe-Weizen and an IPA.

Poured with a orange color and a head of about an inch or so. Color is really nice.
Odor is fruity and mostly sweet with a little green to it.
Taste is hoppy and fruity. A little bitterness with citrus(grapefruit and orange) as well as some tropical fruit. A little bitterness at the end. Mouth feel is pretty smooth overall with moderate carbonation.
Overall, a pretty good IPA. Not as good as others, but has good complex flavor and a great appearance.

I'm a fan of Schlafly and visit the Tap Room whenever in St. Louie; couldn't resist this 6'er from TW for $10.99 (after $1 coupon).

A - the yellowest (looks like a Bud) IPA with barely any head. Despite the small amount of foam, beautiful lacing decorated the glass throughout.

S- Great olfactory sensation! Grapefruit, mango, with a relaxed herbal scent.

T - Similar to the smell, but a little tamer in terms of the citrus. I get almost a roasted fruit flavor (e.g. grilled apricot/peaches) followed by the mellowest piney spice. The warmth of the 7.2 ABV% comes through without overwhelming the flavors.

Mouthfeel - medium body and not overly oily.

O - This is another winner from Schlafly. I really enjoyed the complexity that came with each sampling. Careful though, at 7.2 ABV these could go down waaay too easily.

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.

4.6/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - A very light orange, yellowish color, pretty clear, with a small head that produces minor lacing.

S - I really love the fruit smell coming off this one, with a slight hint of other hop notes, such as pine and grass.

T - A subtle grapefruit flavor is out front, with mango and pineapple forming a central base, and some lemon and zest for good measure. Some sweetness balancing off the bitter notes. Delicious.

M - Clean and crisp, with very little drying.

O - A great beer experience, and one I'd sign up for again. No sign of the alcohol when drinking this one, and it is very drinkable, so be sure to pace yourself. If you like your IPA to have strong fruit without being a bomb, this is an excellent example.
