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 from 12 oz bottle , bottled 3 months ago so I wasn't going to rate it but it was so good I thought I would

A very light yellow colored beer with a white 1 finger head and small amounts of lacing

Very sweet hoppy smell , floral and earthy and sweet

Very nice smooth mouthfeel to this brew , very enjoyable

Very nice tasting beer , the hops the malt and the yeast all come together very well , just a great example of an American IPA that is very balanced , will be purchasing this every year when it comes out

Yellowish in color with a cloudy body, this beer features a nice, frothy head of white foam that holds its own for some time. The nose on this beer is fruity all the way, with scents of pineapple, orange peel, grapefruit, and more emanating from your glass.

As for the taste, this beer seems to be firing on all IPA cylinders in its own unique way. The flavor, like the nose, emphasizes the tastes of different fruits with pineapple and citrus standing out above the rest. There are other tropical fruit flavors to behold but the beer also offers some nice biscuit and toasted malt flavors before returning once again to the flavor of fruity hops.

IPA are often fruity in nature, but this beer is even fruitier than most and both its flavor and appearance are unique for the style. Its flavor is almost like that of a cask- drawn beer and its taste is second to none for any style. I know that they brew this beer with Australian hops and that accounts for much of the interesting flavor. It is the type of beer that could be consumed very quickly and the alcohol could really sneak up on you if you’re not careful.

This is certainly a one-of-a-kind beer and I am glad I took the time to give it a try. It belongs in a class all by itself and I recommend finding it and sampling if you happen to be in the state of Missouri.

4.09/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow color…about a finger width, white head formed and lasted…hazy and not overly transparent…livens up nicely when I swirl it around…(4/5)

Smell: Tons of pineapple and grapefruit emanating from the glass as soon as I poured it…light and zesty…orange, tangerine and tropical fruits also very apparent…mildly sweet, there is some grassy and biscuity notes balancing things out…mildly floral, but nothing too powerful, this is a citrus hops dominant IPA…(4/5)

Taste: Orange, pineapple, grapefruit, mango and general tropical fruit tones right away with a noticeable grassiness to it…malts are mildly sweet and biscuity and play a background role…some lemon zest in there as well…a touch of musty yeast lingers after I swallow…fantastic! (4.25/5)

Mouthfeel: Light body, light carbonation…some fluff does form bringing a bit of lemon peel bitterness to the palate…the light body is refreshing and overall, mildly bitter considering it’s an IPA…light lemony/pineapple citrus flavor with a touch of bitterness lingers in the after taste…one of the lightest mouthfeels for an IPA I’ve ever had…(3.75/5)

Overall: This is a good brew and I wish I had more than one…the “T” in T.I.P.A. stands for Tasmanian, signaling this ale was made with 100% Australian hops…I found it while traveling through Kentucky, though it’s made in STL, and picked it up on a mix-a-six rack…this is a quintessential summertime brew with it’s super light, drinkable and refreshing nature…I’m not sure if or when I’ll be seing this again, but I highly recommend picking this up if you see it…this bottle was born in 12/12 and seeing as it’s made with Australian hops, it may be strictly a winter seasonal…even though it’s 3 months old now, I found the flavor to be fresh and zesty and well worth picking up even at this late date…if you see this floating around in your area, pick it up and enjoy…(4/5)
