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.

The beer pours a clear, bright yellow with a finger of bleach-white head that settles into a thin blanketing without lacing. The nose pushes forward potent, unforgiving hop aromatics unmistakably galaxy, with notes reminiscent of unbrewed silver needle tea, white grape, and maybe a hint of garlic/onion. The taste is potently hoppy as well, with a complimentary pale malt sweetness, and very little bitterness on the back end. It drinks easily for a 7% IPA presenting flavorful hops upfront, a semi-dry sweetness, and unnoticeable bitterness in the finish. It's definitely well carbonated, light-medium bodied, and highlights the hop without much interruption. I'm very pleased with this beer, it's easily available, affordable, and I'd readily compare it to half acre's double galaxy.
