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.

Tasmanian IPA is a slight hazy, dull gold that pours almost no head, with minimal retention and lacing. These galaxy hops give me an over-sweet, rotting fruit aroma, which although in many ways is strangely enticing, is not the best overall aroma. These sweet rotting fruit aromas are most noticeably orange and mango.

Taste follows the nose in a lot of ways, except it is more just sweet without the hints of rot. Nice flavor, but too sweet for me especially in the finish. Has a creamy feel with expected body and carbonation for an IPA.
