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.

Gold colored and slightly hazy, this beer looks very tasty. It's slightly hazy and has lots of bubbles. There is a one finger, perfectly white head that remains throughout and there is an attractive lacing.
It smells of fruit, pineapple and mango and pepper spice. The aroma is strong and I never have to work hard to pull it out which is a very nice feature.
The flavors are similar to the aromas, pineapple, pepper, and toasted bread being the one difference.
This IPA is medium bodied with hop bitterness up front followed by a slight malty sweetness and a very nice citrusy aftertaste.
This is the very beer I have had from Schlafly. Tasmanian IPA rivals some of the very best ipa's I've ever had and I would love to purchase it if it was distributed to my area. This is a top flight beer that any IPA lover should try.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A: a little darker than a bud light, better lacing, not near the clarity of bud light but it's not bad

S: has a little bit of a spicey smell, pineapple, has a souring grapefruit smell I think it's the type of malts They use

T: Nice clean taste alcohol surprised by tasting the booze some pineapple and grapefruit pretty malty too but the malts compliment the bitterness

M: Lingering cloying just ok

O: I had this beer in January and older a lot older and I remember it being a lot better this beer is ok and as dad as schlafly goes pretty impressive but really it's ordinary for most other brewers. I thought this beer was better last year I'm disappointed I have 11 more bottled 9-24-14

Appearance - Opaque orange straw like color

Smell - dried fruit, bread, lemon zest, with a nice malty finish

Taste - lots of bittering hops up front followed by a tart grapefruit finish

mouthfeel - kind a dry finish for me

Overall - this TIPA was a fun beer to try again soon, hopefully.
