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 into a balloon glass.

The beer almost reminds me of white grape juice in color with a light cream colored head that leaves light lacing.

The beer smells hoppy, but also sour, with a presence of a cat litter kind of aroma. Also some booze on the back end.

The taste profile begins very, very sour. Grapefruit rinds and a spiciness that give way to bitter, bitter finish.

The mouthfeel is very dry.

Overall, the cat litter aroma and sourness are a bit too much. I like the spicy component, though.

Rich sand slightly dark golden hue. Thin cover of foam just coats the top of this brew. Brussels lacing. I can see micro sized bits of hops suspended within this unfiltered ale. Intense vegetal aroma with hints of pineapple,mango,and unripened tomato vines. The flavor while bitter is not as intense as the aroma. The flavor is a blend of grapefruit and vegetal,earthy hops. There's a prickly bitterness on the tongue and an intensely bitter,vegetal aftertaste. I like bitter IPA's but Galaxy hops aren't my thing.
