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.

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!

Pale Amber color with an inch of head. Nose very citrusy with orange and melon. Hints of pine. Taste grapefruit and melon, orange peel and floral hops. Strong finish. This is the IPA from Schlafly that gets all the hype. It's a very good IPA that's only seasonal but not as good as their AIPA. Will still happily drink many of them.
