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.

This is my favorite beer from the schlafly family to date. Pours a milky light golden hue with heavy frothy head. Notes of light hops and heavy citrus on the nose. The beer is smooth on the palate, balanced with citrus, light hop and some earth. I would have desired a stronger hop bite especially on the finish. A solid keeper

Pours a very hazy even turbid straw and faded orange color. There is even some yeast or hops sediment at the end of the pour. A modest head soon dissipates but a light film and ring like lace retains well.
An assortment of fruit aromas hit the nose at first. I'm thinking melon, honeydew, mangoes and even banana. As I drink along, there is an increasing scent of grassy and pine hops, whose herbal and earthy qualities interplay nicely with the sweetness of the fruit.
There are several components from the aroma that line up with the flavor and mouthfeel. Several of the fruity aromas- melon, honeydew, mango-are evident in the flavor. There is also a soft pale malt, sweet and almost silky finish. Soon enough however, the prickle from the pine hops becomes more pronounced. In addition, a citrusy, light grapefruit like flavor, that was not evident in the aroma, makes its presence felt. Further still, the grassy hops nearly overtake everything, providing a moderate and earthy bitterness. Yet, there is a lovely interplay and balance-like a musical duet- between the silky malt and prickly hops. It all comes together in a medium body that yields a very drinkable brew.
Solid IPA all around.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with an inch or so of thin head that dissipates rather quick. Taste is pleasant and citrusy with less bitterness than expected. Overall very good and probably slightly superior to Sierra Nevada's Boomerang IPA, which uses the same Australian hops (although Boomerang is still pretty darn good).

At first pour this was a cloudy gold rapidly forming inch and a half head of white aromatic foaminess. My first impression was heavily floral and grapefruit like but upon further review its more pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is citrusy with bitters but not as bitter as I would have expected from the aroma. Mouth feel is carbonated but far smoother than I expected.
