BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States
schlafly.com

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.

12oz, "bottled with love on 08/25/2015"
A - frothy ivory head fades to a thin foam atop a very hazy tangerine colored ale with heavy particulate matter suspended within
S - juicy lemon-lime citric hop aroma with light caramel, a bit of pine and grapefruit
T - juicy and very zesty with lemon, lime, and grapefruit rinds, light caramel, a bit earthy with some piny notes as well
M - medium body, zesty tingle to the tongue, finishes bitter and semi-dry
O - good to try with good utilization of the Aussie hops.

Cloudy, hazy golden appearance. Sometimes some extra amount of particulate floating or settling. Amazing citrus aroma.
Bitterness and grapefruit flavor that I really like. Finishes easy without lastiing astringency or alcohol bite. Smooth and creamy mouth feel.
Definitely one of my favorite IPA's.

Hazy dark yellow liquid with a decent off-white head sitting atop. Retention is minimal.
Smell is ... odd. Citrus, malt, bread and a weird note that starts to show as it warms. Starts similar to furniture polish then progresses to industrial cleaner. Not off-putting but weird.
Taste is juicy, grapefruit and lemon, pith, floral and that odd chemical note. It fades into the pith note but still odd.
Medium bodied, medium effervescence, drying finish. It ain't horrible, but it ain't great. I hope I got a bad bottle (there are two more in the fridge).

Well, second bottle shows the predecessor is off. Smell is fine, no off notes at all. All citrus, hops, floral and a bit of bubblegum.
Neither is there any weirdness present in the taste.
Hell even the appearance is better with nice sheets of lacing being left behind.
I've changed the numbers to reflect this bottle. Only thing different is the first was approaching room temperature so maybe, like all the megas, this needs to be consumed cold and fairly quickly else the evils appear. One hypothesis. Cheers.

Appearance - copper in color indicative of the style's color. Smell - piney but smooth. Taste - tropical fruit back end and little bitterness, very solid. Overall - this is a good beer. I would like to try this on tap for sure.

Pours a hazy straw color, with a little carbonation. An aggressive pour results in a huge, foamy white head. A mild smell of hop. An nice pineapple/piney hop taste. Very clean and crisp with a lighter mouthfeel. Perfect malty balance. This is top notch.

On tap at Downtown Crown Beer and Wine. Medium golden coloring with small foam head. The Galaxy hop is growing on me, the aroma is somewhat pineapple/citrus and develops the slight "oniony" characteristic when it warms. Flavor is grassy and slight citrus, again, somewhat oniony. Definitely a hop bomb, bitterness is on point and is very well-rounded.
