BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States

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.

Bottled 11/04/16, bought on sale at The Keg, Clarksville IN for $8.99.

A: Pours cloudy light gold, like a wheat. Half inch head. Lacing continues as I drink. Bubbly enough.

S: Grass, lemon, floral. Nothing strong but nothing foul. Clean nose.

T: This has died in the bottle. And I read the other reviews to decide that, because reviews helped me choose this beer. Light floral, light lemon, light pineapple. Hint of lemon zest and light resin hit, followed by light bitterness. Some malt on the end. I have a feeling this would be a lot better fresh, so I won't knock it too much.

M: Carbonation is below medium. Dry finish with light oil.

O: I really think this died in the bottle. Would like to try some fresh, as there is some potential here that I think wasted away; if I ever do get some fresh I will write a new review. Here is the weird thing: I don't think this works as a Fall release. This tastes like a good hot summer day and grilling beer, what it has become in this bottle is like a decent wheat beer. Strange. Good effort. Will try to get some fresher later this year, because I think there is something really good in here, it just died.

Man, I maybe missing something here, but this is one of the weirdest IPAs I have ever had. Tastes somewhat cheesy I think with some citrus. Doesn't do it for me at all.

I've had a few different Galaxy-forward IPA's. Of two I can think of off the top of my head, I loved one (RAR Hyde) and hated another (Clown Shoes Galactica). This one? It smelled like gruyere cheese. It tasted like gruyere cheese with an earthy, biting finish. Very strange. Not entirely undrinkable, but one of the oddest-tasting beers I've ever had.

From the growler (filled at Total Wine, Fredericksburg, VA), it pours amber with a nice head, diminishing to a thin layer (but remaining awhile). Lacing. Nose is piney and citrusy to me. The taste is very pleasing with a bit of tart and citrus and possibly pineapple. Yum!
