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.

A- Pale yellow with a nice, white head. Ring of foam remains throughout the drink, leaving behind white lacing throughout.

S- Sweet citrus, passion fruit, slight Simcoe-like cat box. Very faint toasted malts, and the faint smell of alcohol.

T- Very sweet passion fruit, and a huge range of citrus. I also catch a bit of a melon flavor in there. The bitterness is smooth and it hangs around. Slight boozy taste as it warms. The slight malt taste eventually starts to come through, but the hops are front and center.

M- Feels sticky and oily, coating the mouth. Feels great, and really enforces that sweet taste.

O- I am a huge fan of this brew from Schlafly. One of the best IPA's I've had to date, as the bitterness isn't oppressive and the hops taste absolutely fantastic. Well done, in my opinion.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: pours a straw golden pilsener color with a.quick fading head. Good lacing.

Nose: galaxy is supposedly new Zealand grown Citra and it smells like it. Tropical citrus with a mild grassy undertone. Hops are the star.

Taste: really, really good. Light, pale malt. Hops steal the show. Slightly sweet. Very tropical and citrusy with that same slight grassiness. Bitterness is present but relatively low. Obviously big on the late hop additions and dry hop.

Feel: well-carbed. Light to medium body.

Overall: delicious. Great showcase for a great hop. The hops are the star and they really perform.

Ale pours a medium yellow with a small white head that laces down the pint glass. Bright citrus aroma, taste of citrus, balanced with sweet malt and a slightly dry bitter finish. No alcohol in the flavor which makes this dangerously sessionable. Very delicious and well made.

A - Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger, white head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of citrus, orange and grapefruit. There was a hint of bubblegum with some toasted caramel maltiness.

T - Big bitter bite up front with grapefruit, mango and orange flavors. It had a sweet caramel flavor with a touch of toastiness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is another fantastic IPA from Schlafly. I'll be picking up more before this disappears from the shelves.

Poured from the bottle a very clear and bright yellow with two fingers of bright white head. Left behind lots of sticky lacing.

Big aroma of grassy hops with this one along with an abundance of earthyness.

Like the aroma, this really pushes the hops level. A big bite of grass and pine and a bite of lemon. Finishes clean with just a slight medicinal note.

Medium bodied and sticky with a moderate carbonation.

This one is so good! Hoppy and well balanced.
