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.

A: medium gold with amber-orange inclinations, clear with a full head of white foam that left some lacing as it retreated down the glass

S: bright citrus notes, fruity and floral...

T: juicy, citrusy, orange and pineapple, tangy and zesty, fresh; clean malt bill underscores and never overshadows the brilliant hop action

M: medium-to light, tight and zesty, fresh, clean, bright

O: a fantastic IPA - can't believe there's this much fruitiness just from the hops - really tremendous hop bill blossoms brilliantly

poured 12oz bottle into a snifter. Bottled on 11/14/13.

A - A bright and slightly hazy yellow tangerine liquid with a white 2 finger head. Fades into a collar and leaves behind generous amounts of webbed lacing.

S - So the aroma is near perfect to me. Tons of tropical goodness, pineapple, mango, tangerine, and even some apricot. The malt is a light honey suckle or clover sweetness that works in harmony with the hops.

T - What a mouthful of flavor this IPA packs. Again it is big on the tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, and tangerine. There is a nice bitterness, but it is not grapefruit. There is just enough sweetness to keep the hops from completely dominating.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Has a nice slick feel.

O - Schlafly has a real winner on their hands that can hang with all the big Citra IPAs. This was really well done and excellent to quaff. Harold, thank you for sending this!

I am so elated to have found this during a recent Veterans Day foray to State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD! PA is not yet part of Schlafly's distribution chain, but I have known brewer Stephen Hale for some time and I always enjoy what he has brewed up.

From the bottle: "A Special Release IPA, TIPA is available for a limited time, with a new IPA every few months."; "Schlafly Tasmanian Style IPA is brewed with 100% Australian hops. They impart a unique citrus flavor to the ale."

I was anxious and slowly growing tired, so popped the cap and got an aggro pour going. This resulted in two fingers of rocky, bone-white head with decent retention. Color was a hazy sunshine-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose was very pineapple, reminding us yet again that hops and marijuana are from the same family. Pineapple Express, anyone? Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was earthy, less fruity than on the nose, although I definitely tasted the pineapple flavor. The malt gave it a cake-like sweetness to the point that I could taste pineapple upside-down cake, courtesy of my late maternal grandmother. She could cook and when I began high school, I was ensconced in the Home Ec kitchens, learning how to cook for myself. We used to get baked at Lunch and then start baking in Home Ec and man, did everything taste good! This was not a subtle beer, but neither was it a bitter, in-your-face hop bomb. It had a nice mellowness, especially on the finish, which was only semi-dry, at best. I really dig what brewers are doing currently and I would recommend this as an AIPA for those who do not generally like AIPAs. Very user-friendly, dig?

A: This poured a clear light gold with a bit of white head.
S: It smelled like bold fresh apricot and bitter grapefruit and dank herbal hops, with a little sweet honey malt.
T: It tasted like bitter grapefruit and unripe apricot, with some sweet honey and dank herbal hops. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a top tier IPA. Great clean scent and taste like a liquid hop. The body was ok and the finish was really smooth, so it was quite easy to drink. Yum.
