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.

Had my first one at World of Beer (bottle). And liked it. Picked up a 6er at my local liquor store. Pours a slightly hazy straw color. Nice frothy head. Big citrusy aroma. Big citrusy taste! Decent amount of lacing in my tulip. Wow, I'm impressed, not your average IPA. Nice bitter edge on it as well. This is a pleasant surprise. Very drinkable! The way I see it...if I'm eager to drink another...its a keeper.

This is my favorite beer from the schlafly family to date. Pours a milky light golden hue with heavy frothy head. Notes of light hops and heavy citrus on the nose. The beer is smooth on the palate, balanced with citrus, light hop and some earth. I would have desired a stronger hop bite especially on the finish. A solid keeper

Pours a hazy golden yellow with an inch or so of thin head that dissipates rather quick. Taste is pleasant and citrusy with less bitterness than expected. Overall very good and probably slightly superior to Sierra Nevada's Boomerang IPA, which uses the same Australian hops (although Boomerang is still pretty darn good).

At first pour this was a cloudy gold rapidly forming inch and a half head of white aromatic foaminess. My first impression was heavily floral and grapefruit like but upon further review its more pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is citrusy with bitters but not as bitter as I would have expected from the aroma. Mouth feel is carbonated but far smoother than I expected.
