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.

Ale pours a medium yellow with a small white head that laces down the pint glass. Bright citrus aroma, taste of citrus, balanced with sweet malt and a slightly dry bitter finish. No alcohol in the flavor which makes this dangerously sessionable. Very delicious and well made.

Pours golden with 4 fingers of pearl colored head. Above average head retention & lacing

Great IPA, hope this become a regular, would drink as long as it's fresh

A - Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger, white head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of citrus, orange and grapefruit. There was a hint of bubblegum with some toasted caramel maltiness.

T - Big bitter bite up front with grapefruit, mango and orange flavors. It had a sweet caramel flavor with a touch of toastiness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is another fantastic IPA from Schlafly. I'll be picking up more before this disappears from the shelves.

Poured from the bottle a very clear and bright yellow with two fingers of bright white head. Left behind lots of sticky lacing.

Big aroma of grassy hops with this one along with an abundance of earthyness.

Like the aroma, this really pushes the hops level. A big bite of grass and pine and a bite of lemon. Finishes clean with just a slight medicinal note.

Medium bodied and sticky with a moderate carbonation.

This one is so good! Hoppy and well balanced.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Beautifully clear yellowish-orange with one-finger head. Beer left significant lacing. A really beautiful pour and very clear for an IPA.

S - Holy citrus batman! The heavy citrus notes kick in immediately, with some grapefruit up front. A bit piney on the finish.

T - Very bitter and typical of an overly hopped up IPA. Almost a DIPA in my opinion.

M - A bit grainy and very full / thick on the palate. Leaves the mouth a little dry and craving some more.

Overall - very great beer. Another solid effort from Otto and my friends over at Schlafly. I will be buying more of this as long as it sticks around.

4.08/5  rDev -4.4%

A - pours a clear yellow color with a nice head that leaves a nice lacing down the glass

S - nose is juicy, dank and earthy hops with a little bit of spiciness

T - taste starts off with sweet syrupy citrus flavors that are replaced by some of the caramel malt backbone. However, the Tasmanian hop comes back with a juicy grapefruit flavor that wasn't detectable in the nose. These yield slightly to a little bit of earthy spiciness, but some grapefruit bitterness helps round it off.

M - a little watery, but it works well with this beer

D - overall, this is a solid single hop IPA. I really like this hop...it reminds me of Citra, but more spicy and not as juicy. Recommended while it's on the shelf.
