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.

From notes. A clear golden color with a moderate white head. The aroma was a little light with nice citrus and tropical fruits. Taste was fruity and sweet with a little pine bitterness. Nice malt balance which finishes very clean with no aftertaste. A really good IPA.

Notes from glass had from tap six months ago at Mekong in Richmond.

A sterling example of hoppy but not bitter. My friend, who usually steers clear of IPAs, and I, a hophead, enjoyed this one equally.

Reminiscent of Stone Enjoy By but zeroes in more on the pineapple, with notes of lemon and wheatgrass.

Had never heard of the brewery or beer. A very pleasant surprise. Yum yum yum.

I'm definitely not an IPA lover, but I absolutely loved this. Bartender at the tap room let me try it when I told him I didn't like IPA. Then he had a good laugh when I told him to pour me one. Outstanding!

Pours light golden. Aromas of citrus, with subtle pine. Taste is good balance of malt and hops. 7% ABV not noticeable. Carbonation just right. Highly drinkable. Finish is subtle, grapefruit notes but not overly bitter. Great IPA to kick off the summer.

Pour is a transparent pale golden color with a tight white head and big lacing. Nose is a good bit of mango with hits of caramel malts and a touch of grain presence. Taste is a bit less hop forward and has a touch of a metallic twang in the finish. Malts are up front, less grain, almost husky, and a bit messier. Still tropical fruit hops with a fair bit of bitterness in the aggressively carbonated finish.
