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.

I usually like the herbal, funky IPAs. This was pure citrus - and one of the best IPAs I have ever had.

Damn good ipa. Pineapple citrus flavors are delicious and balanced out so perfectly by a nice earthy hop finish. My biggest complaint is consistency had the February batch and the pineapple was the main event, and the September batch seems to be much more herbal and grassy. Still awesome amount of drink ability but not at all the same beer.

Had my first one at World of Beer (bottle). And liked it. Picked up a 6er at my local liquor store. Pours a slightly hazy straw color. Nice frothy head. Big citrusy aroma. Big citrusy taste! Decent amount of lacing in my tulip. Wow, I'm impressed, not your average IPA. Nice bitter edge on it as well. This is a pleasant surprise. Very drinkable! The way I see it...if I'm eager to drink another...its a keeper.
