Schlafly Tasmanian IPA (TIPA)Schlafly Tasmanian IPA (TIPA)
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States | website

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Fall

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: pours a straw golden pilsener color with a.quick fading head. Good lacing.

Nose: galaxy is supposedly new Zealand grown Citra and it smells like it. Tropical citrus with a mild grassy undertone. Hops are the star.

Taste: really, really good. Light, pale malt. Hops steal the show. Slightly sweet. Very tropical and citrusy with that same slight grassiness. Bitterness is present but relatively low. Obviously big on the late hop additions and dry hop.

Feel: well-carbed. Light to medium body.

Overall: delicious. Great showcase for a great hop. The hops are the star and they really perform.

12oz bottle poured into a goblet. Bottled 9/26/13, les than a month old.

Pours a superb slightly hazy golden body with a generous thick white head. Carbonation is slow and consistent. Head slowly dissipates to a covering by the ned of the drink. Lacing is fine and widespread.

Smell...aah, I know I'm going to enjoy this. Nose is initially predominantly Mango, but then citrus pokes through, mostly grapefruit.

Taste. Just outstanding. Kinda the opposite of the nose. Bitter hops and a strong grapefruit taste with a wash of the sweeter mango coming through. How'd they do that? Gotta seek out other beers with Tasmanian hops.

Mouth was a good medium, all kinds of sharpness exploding in the mouth.

Just an outstanding beer across the board. Hoping they distribute to PA at some point. (M-I-L lives a few miles from Maryland border.) First time I can recall buying a sixer of a beer I've never tried, and actually wishing I'd pulled the trigger on a case. Grab some, you won't be disappointed.

This year's (2014) TIPA tastes like Thai basil... seems different from last years'. Still, pretty good. It's interesting to taste this against the new Flying Dog's Single Hop Imperial IPA (Galaxy), also with Australian hops.

This came to me as a 20 oz. draft in a mug. Lucky me and thanks to the bartender for pointing out this new offering.

In the looks department, the IPA is gorgeous crystal clear deep yellow-gold topped with a finger and a half of meringue-like head, reducing slowly to a form lasting cap and exemplary lacing.

The aroma hit me before the glass his the bar, wafting fresh floral and citrus hops and a bit of honey-ish sweetness that was almost tactile in quality.

The flavor was lots of fun and mixed freely with the nose in a potpourri of fruity yeast, malt, and very fresh hops, just ever so delicately piney. Everything about the flavors evoked freshness an to me evoked a garden or orchard like essence.

A medium body and just the right amount of carbonation rounded out this glass fairly perfectly.

Overall very well-balanced in all aspects. I have been impressed with several other Schlafly offerings, and this Tasmanian IPA is the best so far. I will be going back for more of this one.

Enjoyed at the brewpub in St Louis, reviews from notes.

A: 1.5 finger head with excellent lacing on a clear dull golden body.

S: many citrus notes present including tangerine peach pineapple and orange peel. Nice strong, full nose

T: hops are broad with herbal earthy and citrus notes. Nice malt, more of a pale malt, presence and mild bitterness.

M: creamy body and moderate carbonation

Overall: complex hop character. Best beer of the ones I tried.

S: Huge passionfruit, lychee, some dankness, very sweet smelling

L: Slightly hazy golden yellow, creamy white head with decent retention.

T: Passionfruit sweetness up front with a clean maltiness. Medium high, fruity bitterness leading to a fruity resinous. Malt provides support and slight sweetness in the background. Finishes semi-dry with hop bitterness and slight passionfruit.

M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation, refreshing.

Just a complete passionfruit bomb without being overwhelming. It's amazing such a simple single malt, single hop beer could be this flavorful. One of the best IPA's i've had in a while and great showcase for galaxy hops.

Wow! What a fun beer to savor in the fall or winter weather. I picked up this sixer from one of my local stores.

The beer pours an off white head, and the body is as pale as a Bud or Coors Original. The head retains well, and a lace remniscent of fine lingerie remains. Carbonation is friendly, but not excessive like a cola.

As for how it feels, it feels like a standard IPA. Folks, you know you're drinking beer.

Taste: Pineapple at the start, with a sharp bite right after. Beechwood follows, and next a hint of pine. At the finish, a floral hop kisses you goodbye.

Overall, this is a grand beer. This changed my mind about the Schlafly brewery once and for all. I've got to explore more my fellow BAs. Time's a wasting! My next haul will have Schlafly!

I thought I had rated or reviewed this year's ago. One of my favorite seasonal releases period. Love the Australian hops in this one. So aromatic and flavorful, bursting with juicy tropical fruit hoppy goodness. This year's Stone Thunderstruck reminded me of this one but with a higher ABV. Fantastic IPA.

Poured into a La Gauloise snifter on 10/30/13

Reviewed in memory of MbpBugeye (RIP)

Bottled with love on 10/01/2013

A heavy haziness (not cloudiness) permeates the appearance in sharp contrast to the lightly golden and pineapple juice hue of the beer. It's a delicate look, apparent especially when held even remotely close to the light. The head starts slow and picks up steam in two bouts of surging foam. The head recedes after a short spell. Stands of lace are not in abundance but do thicken up halfway into the glass.

The aroma is that of aging sweet cling stone peaches cut up, crammed into a tupperware container, and left in the fridge for the morrow's breakfast. It is of jam and preserves, and the anticipation of biscuits soon free of the oven. In short, the aroma is wonderful.

The oft used IPA hot words of grapefruit, peach, nectarine and perhaps a nudge from lemon are as prickly as pine-laden offerings and curt as the finish of a Kolsch. The Galaxy hops impart additional light fruit flavors more attributable to Tripels. Given time, the hops gel into a peach-heavy blend that picks up the slack for sweetness in the absence of basically any appreciable malt bill. While it's impressive how dialed back the malts seem, my only gripe is what seems to be a slight void in the taste and aroma. The plus side is that the hop bill is so well crafted it couldn't be bitter if it's wife Fuggled around with East Kent Goldings.

The medium body of the beer is first shaken by the lively carbonation and the assertive hop character. As the hop are reigned in, so too is the carbonation. There is a modest alcohol presence but it is there indeed, manifest in a slickness on the later half; this is most noticeable given the utmost clean finish of the grain and hop bill.

Perhaps inadvertently Schlafly produced an IPA that can not only rival but best most any Belgian style IPA out there. It also holds its own with more common IPAs of the day and, at 7.2% abv, it isn't far from where I like my DIPAs. I picked up the bottle on a whim and it was a good whim to pick up on. Dear Schlafly, please come to Ohio. And thank you for dating your bottles.

Hazy golden orange with a thick white head and tons of chunky lacing. Sweet citrus aroma fills the nose, light cracker notes from the malt let the hops just shine. Initial light cracker followed by a blitz of citrus hop flavor that finishes slightly bitter. Taste starts off orange citrus and sweet and finishes grapefruit and bitter. Mouthfeel is light end of medium body with nice carbonation and a dry finish. This is an outstanding IPA with great citrus flavor that I will look forward to every year.

From: Binny's, Champaign, IL
Date: Bottled 11/29/2012
Glass: Tulip

Zounds. This IPA is so hop-delicious that I feel it's comparable to Zombie Dust (and yes, I know that is an "APA") in terms of intensity of taste and smell, but using an obviously different hop combination. The hop aromas and flavors are intense, but the malts still manage to peek through at times, which while not balanced, still says, "hey, we tried." For $11 a six-pack using an export hop, this also hits the price satisfaction point. One I'd get again without question, and am considering going back to my local store to snag the last sixer before someone else does (but I'm not that big of a jerk).

Pours a 2.5cm tall head of slightly off-white foam that has above average retention. The head gradually recedes to a thin cap of lace atop the body, thicker about the edges. Every inch of the glass is just coated with fine lacing, either an unbroken sheet or a complex mix of bizarre symbols and patterns. The body is a pale yellow-gold color, with light bringing out pale yellow hues. At about 75% opaque, the carbonation is still visible and appears fairly vigorous.

Aroma of passion fruit, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, peach juice, apricot, mild bitterness, and slight body odor (like a freshly sweaty, hopped armpit), on top of a backdrop of crackery, slightly sweet pale malts.

Front palate detects sweet fruit esters (pineapple, passion fruit, orange) contributed by the hops and yeast, with a background of cracker-like malt sweetness. Mid-palate is fruity with citrus (orange, grapefruit), stone (peach, apricot) and tropical (pineapple, passion fruit, mango) being the major factors, but there's also some moderate bitterness coming through as well. Back of palate picks up hop bitterness along with grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and passion fruit. Aftertaste of mild grain, slight biscuit, lingering bitterness and strong citrus (orange, grapefruit).

Beer is medium to medium-light in weight with carbonation of medium intensity, resulting in a beer with a slightly fizzy, then foamy mouthfeel. Somehow manages to avoid ever coming across as watery, closing with a flash of bitterness that reveals a semi-dry close, probably due to all the hop resins.

Very smooth, optimal carbonation, bitterness, with a moderate finely bubbled froth/head. Not too malty either which is surprising given that it's a 7,2%. Doesn't have the typical industrial hops firebombing approach like most of the hispter microbrewed IPA:s that taste more like smoking a cigarette than drinking a beer either.

Considering 'the notes' of citrus and pineapple I'd say it looks, tastes, and smells like a meld of a good German style Hefe-Weizen and an IPA.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a CRYSTAL clear gold, with several fingers of foamy bright-white colored head. This retains with at first a big creamy dollop in the middle of the glass and then finally a thick finger or so of robust froth which coats the sides of the glass with rich sticky lacing. The aroma is equal part floral and herbal in the nose with added notes of grapefruit, lemon, pine and then bright tropical fruit tones of mango and pineapple. A light bready feel hangs along the back. This is fresh and vibrant in the nostrils, with that fruit character in particular really being a stand out.

The taste is juicy grapefruit bitterness that gives off a robust bright feel in the mouth, surrounded on the edges by herbal textures and more sweet tropical fruit character. Malts are fairly neutral here but their sweetness does seem to help draw more of that fruit flavor out from the hops. The finish is dry and resinous with some lingering bitter pith. It’s a bit assertive but not overly so. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a soft oily crispness to the carbonation that really flows smoothly in the mouth. You don’t get much of a sense of that 7% ABV here at all.

Wow. This is just a tremendous showcase for Galaxy hops and easily surpasses their previous (and excellent as well) bottled American IPA from earlier this year. This has to be one of the best bottled IPAs on the market right now that’s seeing a decent distribution. Grab it if you find it!

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Holy carp this is the PALEST IPA I have ever seen! Fluffy white head, three fingers deep sitting on top of a crystal clear nearly straw yellow pilsner like body. I am talking mirror like reflection in this thing, There is no rising carbonation on this at all, with speckled lacing.

Woah what's that nose!?! Dank apricot.. did I just say that? Yes I did.. in the same sentence. Fresh juicy hop apricot and a faint earth dankness together. Woah that is a combination that I have never had the joy of smelling.. It's a great combination. Fruity but not flakey... Dense but not gritty soil stuck in your teeth.. love where this is going.

Schlafly brings the bread and the goods on the palate. Rich apricot and malt backbone, it's practically baked bread with apricot fruit in it. A real great feel with a classic bread softness, I feel like dried fruit apricot is being pulled out of my teeth and my gums. Dry and resinous, with a thick finish but not much large sweetness which makes it real nice. Feels like fruit/beer territory, the fruit hop angle on this is large, as if they threw fruit in the boil. FRUIT FRUIT FRUIT and it's all HOPS baby.

Schlafly you just keep doing it right... at 7.2 this is going down fast like nothing. It feels even session-able which is a scary downright immoral thing to say. Oh man this is GOOD! You may get a different hop angle, one friend calls pine, the bottle calls citrus, I call apricot blast, either way.. it's pure friggin win.

A: pours a light yellow gold color, that closely resembles the color of the bottle label. it creates about 1/2 fingers worth of bright cream colored head formation with moderate lacing. the color doesnt change when held up directly to the light, and its just murky enough to prevent transparency.

S: wow! that is an immense blast of mango, apricots, orange peel, citrus, lemons, grapefruit! probably one of the fruitiest smelling IPA's I have had. the hops are secondary to the fruits but sit terrifically with the beer. definitely one hell of a smelling brew

T: again, the fruits are the dominating player. huge apricots followed by mango, lemon zest, grapefruit and orange peel (hate to repeat myself, but they are still very much present). it has enough malt to hold the brew together and the dry bitter hops again are infused quite nicely with the brew.

M: medium bodied (venturing on the lighter side of medium). it leaves an intense apricot and mango taste on the palate along with a big bitter hop note.

O: terrifc brew. love the intense fruits and the bitter hops. very intriguing, very nicely balanced. a must try.

Served on-tap in a Shaker pint at Beer Run (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Hazy medium-amber with short 1/2-finger cap of off-white head with good stickiness and several crusty lines of lacing.

S: Huge juicy tropical and citrus aromas jump from the glass with passionfruit, mango, and pineapple joining red grapefruit pith and orange. The malt aroma profile is pretty light with very mild bready caramel.

T: The flavor of this beer is out of site and this is a definite top-tier IPA (and it is priced like one as well). The tropical fruit aromas of this Galaxy-hopped brew are less aggressive and seem better integrated than in other single hop beers. That doesn't mean that this isn't a hoppy beer because it very much is -- but it is not a hammer but more of a feather with nuances of grapefruit, pineapple, passionfruit, orange, lemon, and mango tickling you with combinations of flavors that are new and different. The maltiness is restrained and designed to stay out of the way of the hops, although the malt backbone is there-- there is some light caramel but mostly crackery, bready maltiness.

M: There is a great balance of slickness and creaminess in this brew. It has relatively low carbonation with low bitterness and firm medium body. Alcohol is hidden and it is very drinkable.

O: Tasmanian IPA from Schlafly is a superb American IPA -- definitely make a point to give this beer a try fresh. It presents a wonderful balance of tropical and citrus hops with a variety of tones on a solid but background light maltiness to really stand out as one of the most surprising beers of the year. I had a Lagunitas Sucks on-tap right after it, which is a beer I Ioved from the bottle, and it was no contest - Tasmanian blasted it out of the water.

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.

Reviewed from notes. Bottled on 11/26/12, consumed on 12/15/12 - so this one was seriously fresh.

A: Poured into a Stella Artois glass at my in-laws' place. Body is clear golden-orange with a small white head that left behind some splotches of lace.

S: Very nice - it's all about the hops: citrus (think grapefruit juice and orange peel) and pine resin.

T: Again, I wrote one word to start it out: "Hops." Grapefruit juice and apricot - reminds me of Sculpin in that way. Some sweet caramel malt underneath. Pine resin towards the end of the sip, then finishes with a dry bitterness.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is good.

O: An excellent IPA. My brother-in-law brought this up with him from Baltimore; I wish I could get it in upstate NY, as I'd drink it regularly.

A: One of the lightest colors I've seen in an IPA. Gold, with generous head. Making me thirsty just looking at it.

S: Freshly cut mango, hops. Oh baby.

T: Tropical fruit explosion, thirst-quenching. Light malt backbone. A little grassy. Outstanding beer.

M: Good carbonation, medium bodied. Creamy. Alcohol is well hidden for 7.2%.

O: This might be the best beer I've had from Schlafly to date, and I've had a lot of them. I think I prefer this one over their AIPA. Really wish this was their summer seasonal rather than winter.

Bottle dated 11/7/12. Almost 4 weeks old.

A: Pours a clear golden amber. Big fluffy white head. Fades slowly, leaving nice islands of foam behind. Lots of fluffy lacework to boot. Great head retention.

S: Loads of tropical fruit. Pineapple for sure. Mango and grapefruit? Awesome aroma, so strong, fresh and crisp. Like biting into a fresh pineapple.

T: More tropical fruit. Pineapple is prominent with some mango and maybe....tangerine? Grapefruit follows with a little bit of bitterness. Some caramel malt sweetens it up nicely. Nay, perfectly. Lingering grapefruit and a bit of hop resin in the finish and aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, smooth.

O: Well, this one knocked my pants off. This one is a sweet tropical fruit bomb. Not overly bitter (but still perfectly bitter), it is balanced very nicely in fact - making it super drinkable. Great beer, so glad I had the opportunity to try it.

The beer comes in a hazy bright marihold with tinges of orange and green.

The aroma has a beautiful tropical and citrus aroma. A wonderful single hopped Galaxy aroma of guava in the front, with tart kiwi juicy sweet oranges, nectarine, dried mango. Very fruit forward gorgeous aroma that actually smells of “real” fruit.

The flavor follows with that juicy fruitiness in the front of guava and fleshy grapefruit. Then onto bitter pineapple, guava, mango then onto a light breadiness and also a bit of grainy flavor. The finish is very bitter of grapefruit peel and pith. Along with a piney resinous bitter as well.

A well made IPA that showcases a fantastic hop that I hope to see more of.
