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 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a clear golden color with a solid half inch cream head that leaves a solid sheet of lacing to the rim.

Floral hops mingle with fresh cut grass, pine, and grapefruit, overwhelming the subtle cracker-like malt backbone.

Flavor reveals more malt character, slightly sweet and bready, with a fairly dry, slightly bitter finish. Skunky hops, with notes of lime, grapefruit, herbal hops, and a bit of catty dankness add complexity.

Body is is moderate, with carbonation on the high side of moderate, and a somewhat astringent finish.

Overall, a nice, hoppy brew, with substantial malt backbone. Less citrusy than most, more dank, skunky focus.

Serving type: on-tap

4.25/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A-pours a clear, goldish type color with a two finger head and plenty of lacing

S-heavy citrus including lemon/lime, pineapple, maybe tangerine..not so much grapefruit smell, it has more of a sweeter citrus aroma

T-strong hop bite that doesn't linger too aggressively; traditional citrus peel with some grapefruit type flavors in the taste

M-not too thin, enough carbonation; fairly dry but not overly harsh aftertaste

O-a really solid IPA that delivers more on the aroma than the taste; it uses light malts to really highlight the hop aroma, but I wish there was a bit more pop in the taste

12 oz bottle into a Hoffman House chalice. Dated 10-08-12 - four days ago!

A - Brilliantly clear deep gold with a large, bright white head that falls into a thick crown.

S - Exotic tropical fruits with a resiny, green background note.

T - Inital soft honey-sweet maltiness quickly transitions into a veritable fruit salad of hop flavors with a firm, but clean bitterness. Kiwi, passionfruit and pineapple. Finish is bone dry with only mild bitterness and subtle remaining fruitiness.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation.

O - One of the finest southern hemisphere IPAs available, and at a bargain price. Buy it by the case.
