BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Fall

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.

Schlafly's Tasmanian IPA presents cloudy and tangerine from the can, with a 1.5 cm foam cap. The aroma is very light, but the flavor is rich with orange and pineapple with moderate hop bitterness. The carbonation is pleasantly prickly. I really like this brew.

Imagine my surprise finding this beer in Wilmington Delaware. I was googling it from the liquor store and happily scooped up a 4 pack dated 12/4/18. I am drinking it a month later. Not too old and it is tasting great. Burst open with citrus and malty smell. It has some bitterness but is smooth. Taste starts with pineapple but is not fruity. Malt follows but this is a different IPA. Tastes more like a DIPA but easy to drink. Alcohol is not apparent. Love it

schlafly can really put out a banger from time to time and this one slaps. just over 2 weeks old, dumped into my hop shop glass from a 16oz can. pours a ever so slightly hazed yellow/orange with quite the fluffy/rocky white head and just sheets of lacing. looks like a good hefe, probably cause of the color. aroma is a lot of hops but quite subdued, even with warmth. bits of earthiness, lots of citrus and fruit, mango and pineapple specifically cut through, and a malt background. the flavor shows all of these brighten up and fill out into a super tasty brew. citrus takes the lead followed immediately by earthy/grassy hops and a really solid sweet malt backing note that knows it's place. bits of funkiness and some pepper spice join the party. drinks smooth, medium bodied and leaves a lingering earth bitterness with ya for a minute. find em fresh while ya can

I didn't give this a perfect rating, but this is honestly one of my favorite beers ever. Like I look for ward to it coming out every year. That being said, some years are better than others. 2016 was not that great (it had too much of that kinda cat pee thing on the nose, tasted great though). The 2017 version was far better. It has this real light amber tone to it, and I think it presents well with some haze in the glass. I always kinda pick up a bit of that cat pee smell, but this year wasn't as bad as some years. More of a fruity, funky nose. Not totally pleasant but not a turn off either. It drinks well at 7.2, and gives off some real serious fruity notes on the tongue: citrus is really prominent, but I also get loads of mango and even pineapple. I guess lots of folks are doing similar beers now, but this is one the first to do the Oceanic hop build. Kinda cool to get those notes from a beer that isn't fruited. If you can get it fresh, jump on it because this is literally the best thing Schlafly brews every year

12oz bottled 12/6/17 (48 days old) poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp 7.2% ABV 65 IBU per label. The beer pours Hefe hazy golden yellow with abundant and sticky off white head. Retention and lacing are far above average. The aroma offers a glimpse of citrus and a little earth. The taste is a hint of semisweet caramel malt followed by some vague citrus, tropical fruit and earth with a pleasant medium bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated, dry and a little sharp on the tongue. Overall, very good. Worth grabbing a 6 pack if you find it fresh.
