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.

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.

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.
