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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
Pours a hazy, pale orange color body with a thick, white, three finger head. Light streams of carbonation and plenty of lacing.

Aroma:
A pleasant medley of floral and tropical fruit stimulate the nose. Very sweet citrus notes; pineapple, mango, and starfruit. Light caramel malt.

Taste:
Sweetness hits you like a ton of bricks, it's that potent. Luckily, the bitter bite is swift and unforgiving, lending earthy balance. Pineapple, tangerine, and mango rock the flavor profile upfront while grass and herb on the back. Clean finish with only the faintest hint of alcohol.

Mouthfeel:
Fairly light body for the style. Smooth and easy to drink with a sweet finish.

Overall:
A fantastic IPA that is beautifully balanced, easy to drink despite a rather heavy bite, and 100% enjoyable. Well worth your a slot in your fridge!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear goldenrod color with a frothy head that leaves a nice dotty pattern behind

Smell: Lemon, pineapple and grassy tones

Taste: A touch bready, with the hops quickly taking over; the pineapple is slightly rotting, with lemon, passion fruit and a grassy, Germanic tone, as well; there is also a vinous, white wine character, as the finish is dominated by the unusual Antipodean hops

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A surprisingly austere Germanic influence and a vinous element make this a rather unique IPA
