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.

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

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.
