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.

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.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed orange-amber color with a two finger foamy white head. The head has a pretty good level of retention, fading over time to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The smell is mainly a mix of sweet and hoppy citrus along with some tropical fruit smells. The citrus is of orange and some lemon with the hop being greatest of a grapefruit
smell. Along with the citrus and tropical aromas, there are some notes of a herbal hop as well as some notes of a floral nature.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready and biscuit flavor with a good level of some sweeter orange, tropical fruits and a bit of caramel. Along with these flavors there is a nice hop flavor mostly of a grassy nature, but containing a bit of pine as well. As the taste advances the caramel fades, while a bit of lemongrass comes to the tongue. The bready flavors grow stronger and are joined by a little bit of a spice and some light earthy flavors coming to the tongue. In the end a quite smooth and creamy fruit and bready moderately hopped flavor is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the average. The thick and creamy body are great for the moderate hop profile allowing all those wonderful hop flavors to really be sensed by the tongue. The average carbonation keeps it very refreshing and in combination with the very smooth body, this one is dangerously easy to drink.

Overall – This is a super flavorful, smooth and very easy drinking moderately hopped IPA. A very balanced beer with a great blend of maltiness, sweet and clean tasting hops. Very nice!!

Yes. Please. May I have some more?

What a superbly put together IPA.

The color is a gorgeous pale orange color. A nice tight head that remains well after the pour, clinging to the side of the glass as I drink down this delightful nectar.

Smells of hops, mango, pineapple, and a touch of resin.

Tastes like a tropical fruit salad mated with some fresh baked Hawaiian bread. This is the stuff legends are made of.

Mouthfeel is crisp, clean, and perfectly carbonated.

Bring me more. this needs to be in every IPA fan's fridge.
