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.

Great beer that I'm lucky to be able to find easily on the shelf this time of year.
Pours a brilliant, clear blonde with almost a two finger head.
Smells of dirt, flowers and pineapple-melon.
The taste is clean and floral with a residual sweetness.
I could drink this beer all day and never get tired of it.
Well done, Schlafly.
I would put this TIPA on par with brews like Zombie Dust and Heady Topper.
Look for it, it's a treat.

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.
