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.

Pours out a really clear bubbly yellow with 1/2 finger of white suds. Lacing around the glass occurs.
Smell is mango and pineapple with lemon peel and sharp piney hop. No alcohol here but there is a burn at the end of the aroma that is probably hops and not the alcohol.
Taste is sharp citrus and grapefruit rind with lemon peel and dark piney hops. No alcohol flavor here either.
Mouthfeel is very dry. The only thing left is a blackness that is the floral hops and the slight hint of the 7.2%.
Overall this is a great beer from a So So brewery. Haven't liked much from Schlafly but this is one of the better IPA's out there.. Bravo Schlafly!!

A-nice cloudy gold with a nice frothy white head

S-an awesome scent of tropical fruits and fresh hops. Not such a great strength though. Fairly subtle.

T-comes in with a really decent flavor of tropical fruits and hops. Really it's like a hoppy fruit punch. It's a good mix of the two, though I'd like to see a stronger hops presence. It's really not bitter too much either, only a little bit in the after-taste. It's a fun tasting beer though.

M-dry medium carbonation with a dry finish

O-it's a good IPA. A lot of focus on the fruitiness which isn't a terrible turn from the norm. Even still, I'd prefer a bit more bitterness and hoppiness. An easy drinker for sure. Go out and try some!

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Pours a really nice clear gold color with about a finger of soapy white head, medium lacing around the side.
S - Lots of pine and citrus, then you get some pineapple with some mild pale malt and a hint of rye, and slightly grassy.
T - Big fruit flavors, tangerine, orange, a touch of white grape, some pineapple, a really mild pale malt to bring it all together, some pine bitterness on the end.
M - Very dry, but still crisp and not overpowering.
O - Outstaing IPA, glad I could finally have this after hearing so much about it. The taste on this has a ton of flavor, and to think its single hopped with galaxy makes it that much better.
