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 clean golden yellow pour with a weak 1/4" of head which left a tiny bit of foamy head behind. a citrusy tropical aroma - notes of pineapple, mango, and a hint of mint.. reminds me a lot of the hbc-342 profile. again, a really nice tropical flavor profile, very reminiscent of th ehbc-342 experimental hop profile i messed around with last year on a single hop, single grain beer i did. minty bitterness with a lot of pineapple and mango.
medium in body with a moderate amount of carbonation.
this is a pretty nice experimental ipa. not sure how long it's going to be available so i'd probably pick some up and enjoy it while it lasts. the grain bill tastes fairly simple, but this one's supposed to be all about the hop character anyway, and is a great example of tropical notes in a hop profile.

Pale gold body, good clarity, steady carbonation streams, topped by four fingers of white micro bubbles of all sizes. Good thorough drippy lace. This could sneak up on the non-craft drinker because it looks like an excellent pour of an America Lager.

Terrific fruity aroma, take your pick, mango, tangerine, grapefruit. It's a cornucopia.

Nice light semi-sweet foundation. Juicy fruit squirting all over the mouth. Mild bitter snap at the swallow. Light fruity finish.

Light medium smooth mouthfeel.

A very good seasonal IPA. Big fan of galaxy hops, and they are used well here.
