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.

what a solid offering from schlaflys...i smelled tangerines and other citrus hops the second i opened the bottle. the hops were smooth, sweet, and balanced. the mouthfeel was medium bodied with slight prickling on the tongue. the drinkability was off the charts, and the bottle was empty before i knew it. best brew i have ever had from schlaflys...alcohol was non-existent. i rank this up there with lagunitas little sumpin sumpin for easy drinking smooth hop experience. well done, schlaflys!

Poured from tap into snifter at the bottleworks in stl. Pours a clear golden with a thin head. The look is its biggest downfall. Smell is just amazing. Sweet citrus hops. Pineapple and cotton candy just fill the nose. Wow.
Taste is just like it smells and is fantastic. Add a bit of malt to the aromas and boom...tipa.
So smooth and creamy...the mouthfeel is just perfect. Wow. What a superb beer!
Its just one malt and one hop but wow what a fantastic brew.

This is one of those rare beers where, as soon as you take the first sip, you start worrying about getting back to the store to buy more before they run out.

Pour was a ruby/orange with a tight head. Hops lose not time getting out of the gate with a warm aroma of citrus fruits. Up front a touch acidic awash with a plethora of citrus-oriented hops notes - grapefruit, tangerine and blood orange. A veritable fruit bowl of hops without any fruity-qualities to the beer itself. Mid-caramel malt shows up toward the middle, never trying to upstage the hops. Finish is lingering with a firm bittering. ETOH lends the barest touch of white pepper at the finish.

Highly hopped, but not for the sake of hopping itself - an excellent example of citrus-centric hops. If you see it, buy it.

Bottled on 11/7/12.

Pours a clear light golden color, with visible carbonation and a fluffy 2-finger off-white head. Nice lacing, too. This is a gorgeous beer.

Smell is big on tropical fruits. Pinapple, mango, some peach, orange and mandarin, a light biscuity malt backbone. Ever so slightly skunky. On tap this was ridiculously pungent - kind of reminded me of Zombie Dust. In bottles, it's a bit less so, though it opens up as it warms.

Taste is a grainy biscuity malt backbone, with some nice hop profile. A lot of the same flavors as the smell, but they're somewhat muted. Finishes with a nice warmth.

Mouthfeel is excellent. Light, well carbonated, tingly. No complaints at all.

This is a solid IPA. It's a fun hop. Let it warm before you drink it, though, and have it on tap if at all possible. This review is for the bottle, but on tap this beer is a whole different beast.

A-Clear orange, some carbonation and one finger head.

S-Good deal of hops, citrus, grass, balanced out with caramel and other malts.

T-Great balance. Starts with caramel, grass, citrus, orange. Ends with nice bitterness. Most likely as close to Nugget Nectar as you'll get.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation, velvety.

O-A great brew, wonderful balance, how an IPA with a lot of Red Ale malts should be made.

Pours out a really clear bubbly yellow with 1/2 finger of white suds. Lacing around the glass occurs.
Smell is mango and pineapple with lemon peel and sharp piney hop. No alcohol here but there is a burn at the end of the aroma that is probably hops and not the alcohol.
Taste is sharp citrus and grapefruit rind with lemon peel and dark piney hops. No alcohol flavor here either.
Mouthfeel is very dry. The only thing left is a blackness that is the floral hops and the slight hint of the 7.2%.
Overall this is a great beer from a So So brewery. Haven't liked much from Schlafly but this is one of the better IPA's out there.. Bravo Schlafly!!
