BEER INFO

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.

Very solid beer. Great look and feel. Hops are strong but not overpowered. A bit of spice at the end. Overall great beer.

This was quite a nice surprise. Picked up a few singles at a local supermarket just to try it out. Bottled in August, it is now December, this ale definitely does not appear filtered. Which is good. I love a cloudy IPA, usually means more body to the beer. Which in this case it does. Australian Galaxy hops build the bitter and aromatic profiles, of which are grapefruit, cedar and slightly lemony in flavor.

Delicious in all regards. Only wish I could get my hands on more.
