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

*12 oz. bottle* Look: Sunset orange body, 1 finger white head.

Smell: Very citrus (Oranges, lemon peel), toasted cracker sweetness, bit of mango and a touch of tropical flowers.

Taste: Mango, oranges, grapefruit, flowers, earthy leafiness, papaya, very solid malt backbone, semi dry mild bitter finish.

Feel: Medium smooth body, mediocre carbonation.

Overall: This is solid and also very tasty. I’m glad I tried this ale. This is balanced and enough hop flavor that it lands on what could be DIPA status. The bitter factor isn’t offensive. If you like exotic fruits/flower flavors in your beer, this is a go to. This beer is recommended.

Had on tap at Magnolia's in Purcellville

A - Clear gold body with a sticky white head that clings to the glass. Moderate carbonation rising from the bottom

S - Very citrusy and a nice break from the pine-forward IPA's I've been having. Canned pineapple with a good bit of grapefruit. Slightly candy sweet in the nose

T&M - Great burst of citrus hops right off the bat that is neither overly bitter nor sweet. I taste more grapefruit than pineapple but both are evident. A little mango aftertaste once swallowed. Very different flavors from most IPA's I've had which I really appreciate. I absolutely HATE grapefruit but evidently I love the taste in my beer. Very smooth mouthfeel with less than moderate carbonation. Goes down very easy. Slightly sweet taste without making the mouthfeel sticky.

O - really enjoyed trying this one. WIll buy a sixer if I see it around. Would like to compare vs having on tap.
