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.

I think we have a winner. Here goes:

L: Pours a clear yellow with a nice one-inch head. Leaves a ton of lacing as well. Also, this beer is just loaded with hops - I see a ton of hop particles suspended in the solution. It looks rather bodacious.

S: Wow, Galaxy hops are the bomb! Tropical flavors - tons of pineapple, mango, and tangerines against a floral citrus background. Beautiful.

T: Jeez, what a great flavor to complement the smell. Taste follows the nose with a host of tropical goodness. However, there's a very sufficient malt backbone to balance out the hop bitterness. Lightly-kilned amber malt follows immediately after a succulent hop bomb (can be tasted at the back of the palate). I have to say that this is a very well-balanced beer.

M: Perfect. Malt gives the beer an adequate body that's very filling and satisfying.

O: Outstanding. One of the best IPA's I've ever had.
