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.

Poured into a DFH IPA glass. Clear gold with a beautiful white head. Not the first time I've had this and each time I pour, I'm very impressed with the appearance and the gorgeous nose. Tons of tropical fruit notes waft in a very seductive way.

Really tasty pineapple and mango hop notes; Galaxy hops are a wonderful thing. Clean bitterness on the finish. Medium-bodied and nothing too complicated by the way of malt bill. Likely a simple two row pale malt; so light I don't think there is much else to it! I declare this is a likely a SMaSH beer and a mighty fine one at that. Something to be said about one malt, one hop.

Sexy-ass IPA, all the way. Delicious and good for the soul.

“Bottled with love” on 10/23/13. Purchased $12.99/sixer. Poured into a pint glass.

Well balanced for an IPA. Appearance is holding this beer back from greatness. 4.5

A – Pours a clear pale yellow, almost BMC-like color with a one-finger rocky white that dissipates to a thin layer. Good lacing. 3.25

S – A beautiful aroma, flora, almost perfume like. 5

T – Good bitterness up front with a slight sweetness in the finish. 4.5

MF – There is a smoothness to this beer, but it is also quite refreshing with a bit of sharpness. Medium bodied. Medium-dry finish. 4.5

This beer pours a little on the light side of golden, with some larger bubble head, and some lacing. Having had it before, I expected a stronger aroma, but I didn't get a strong smell. Some wet cardboard, with hints of orange (edit: as the beer "breathed", I noticed more orange, as the taste indicates).

Front taste starts with some carbonation, the hits with orange! I don't mean orange notes, but orange. This mellows into mango and pineapple as the taste fades. There is actually a little woodiness in the end with a dryer than expected feel.

I liked this beer more in my memory than in this tasting. I usually like a nice citrus-flavored IPA, but this is missing something to me, its base is too standard, to me. I think it would be an interesting try for a new IPA drinker, though.

(Note: I thought there was a blandness to another beer I didn't expect much of earlier today, and I wondered if it might be the day, but my girlfriend agreed that the beer wasn't as good as she remembered from a bottle she had bought a week ago. Maybe they altered something?)
