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.

Poured a golden orange with two finger head that died quick and left lace. Solid IPA aroma of floral hops, possible grapefruit although I mostly get citrus, some possible caramel and bread malts in there. I have noticed with these "young" IPAs that the hops seem to be a little more assertive and that is true with this one, as the floral, citric notes, are really strong (again, possibly some grapefruit tastes). Good balance, though, as I get some sweetness from caramel and a little fuller body from bread malts. Finish is strong and sharp due to lively carbonation and overall a really good beer. If this is the new trend (or one of) in terms of IPAs, drinking as young as possible, then this is one trend I can get behind.
