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-clear golden color similar to a straw color with a nice large white head that falls into a small head that stays throughout the beer and good lacing

S-citrusy, malt, pine

T-malt, citrus taste with a piney taste. as the beer warms the malt comes in at the end. the hops have a good strong taste that last through the beer very enjoyable.

F-light body with moderate carbonation, crisp and clean very easy and drinkable

O- enjoyable and easy drinking the beer is very nice overall and would definitely buy this again. citrus and pine are the dominant flavors with a sweet malt near the end. very good.

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 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Pours a dark gold with a 1 inch white head. Nice lacing all the way down the glass

S - This smells delicious. Tropical and floral. Quite a bit of pineapple comes through, and a bit of citrus. But, the pineapple is really strong.

T - Taste follows the smell. Sweet and fruity. Lots of pineapple and floral notes, and slightly bitter at the back of the mouth.

M - Medium bodied, well carbonated. Pretty crisp and slightly sticky.

O - This is definitely a really good IPA. The hops create a wonderful tropical and floral aroma and taste. Would definitely drink again.
