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.

Pours a hazy yellow with a strong orange tinge. Little lacing which dissipates quickly. Prevelant lacing for the lack of head.

Scent is tangerines, grass and gasoline.

Flavor is much the same. Yet it works more. Hops are just prevalent enough.

Mouthfeel is almost perfect. Just enough sweetness. The mouthfeel really makes this.

I dont know why these hops always taste llikegas to me. Luckily I'm getting used to it, as I like this one. Very balanced.

Was given two of these from a friend recently and finally got around to having one yesterday during the late NFL games. I wasn't sure what to expect of this and like others on here, I don't know my hops that well. Thankfully, a few have pointed out on here that this did indeed contain Galaxy hops, which were so pleasing to enjoy from start to finish. This was unlike any IPA that I've ever had and one of the smoothest hoppy beers that I've enjoyed in quite some time!

Nice golden pour to this, with a moderate head and hardly any carbonation to be seen. Just a bit of lacing on my glass but nothing clingy or lacy to note. A subtle but strong grapefruit hop presence was this beer's hallmark and it was something to behold from start to finish. Some pine and floral notes and a lightness that bordered on champagne accompanied both the taste and light appearance of this brew. Strong in alcohol, I couldn't detect it at all except for a faint warming by the time I polished this off, which didn't take long.

Very light and dry, this would be great in the summer instead of reaching for a hop bomb. There wasn't much of any malt here and the mouthfeel didn't contain any waxy resin or oily undertone that this style has come to be known for. While this won't satisfy hopheads, there's a lot to like here and this is about as unoffensive an IPA as one could find on any store shelf. I loved this and if I can still find it for sale, I'll grab another to get me through the winter as a reminder of what the warmer months have in store. Nice job by Schlafly!
