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 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter

A: a little darker than a bud light, better lacing, not near the clarity of bud light but it's not bad

S: has a little bit of a spicey smell, pineapple, has a souring grapefruit smell I think it's the type of malts They use

T: Nice clean taste alcohol surprised by tasting the booze some pineapple and grapefruit pretty malty too but the malts compliment the bitterness

M: Lingering cloying just ok

O: I had this beer in January and older a lot older and I remember it being a lot better this beer is ok and as dad as schlafly goes pretty impressive but really it's ordinary for most other brewers. I thought this beer was better last year I'm disappointed I have 11 more bottled 9-24-14

The beer pours a very nice white and foamy head that takes a while to dissipate. The beer itself is a delightful and cheery orange yellow mix that is obviously unfiltered. However, the particles in the beer add some nice texture to the appearance. The smell is a very strong orange rind smell with light lemon notes. The beer taste is somewhat similar to the smell. The beer taste has strong bitter orange rind notes with a bit of a lemon zest to it. Generally, it is a very hoppy beer but not too bitter. The aftertaste has a very orange taste to it. The mouthfeel is prickly and medium bodied with a smooth finish. Overall, a fantastic IPA and worth getting when it's available.

From 10/17/14 notes. 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Been wanting to try this one for a while, tried 2-3 bottles over 2 days.

Pours a hazy bright yellow color with moderate sediment, one finger of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Citrus hops, tropical fruits, fruity malts, oranges, pineapples, and floral hops. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall very good; I liked this one a lot. Love galaxy hops and this gave a lot of juicy fruits and tropical notes to it. Hoping NYC gets this sometime soon.
