Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Megahertz on 10-12-2012

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.

A: Golden pour with a bit of an orange tinge. Finger's-worth of soapy, off-white, quickly-dissipating head.

S: Beautiful. Extremely citrus and fruity: Pineapple, mango, apricot

T: Bright and strong carbonation. Fairly malty, followed by a wonderful, juicy burst of pineapple and mango, ending with slightly bitter apricot and a touch of hop bitterness to dry it up. Much more fruit than bitterness.

M: Prominent carbonation and a smooth, malty backbone. Sticky fruit.

O: Easily one of my favorites of the style, although it leans a bit more toward the malty/fruity side. Incredible blast of fruit. Long live the Galaxy! This is one of the best things about coming back to the Midwest.

A buddy of mine got me their coffee stout fresh from the brewery in St. Louis this weekend, and I've tried their Americsn IPA Always impressed. Needless to say, each new one I have the pleasure of trying makes these guys earn my respect as a casual beer Connoisseur.

This beer is excellent if you're looking for something that offers powerful hoppy taste, pine, grapefruitish aroma, and drinkability (I mean almost dangerously drinkable). This would pair great with a BBQ on a nice summers eve. Mouthfeel is soft I guess you could say? Not overwhelming at all honestly perfect. She has a pineapple taste upfront imo. Very hopping, I mean wow. Loved it. Would do it all again. Unique take of an ipa from what I've previoust tried. I strongly recommend if you have the option.

This is a completely clear, golden brew. The head is white and frothy, tall, and lasting. Fresh hop smell...pine, wood, wine-casks, and a distant malt. Flavorful. Hops, bitterness and great balance. Not much warming for the ABV. The body is full and firm. Nice, clean, and very, very hoppy. Great brew.
