BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

Hazy golden orange with a thick white head and tons of chunky lacing. Sweet citrus aroma fills the nose, light cracker notes from the malt let the hops just shine. Initial light cracker followed by a blitz of citrus hop flavor that finishes slightly bitter. Taste starts off orange citrus and sweet and finishes grapefruit and bitter. Mouthfeel is light end of medium body with nice carbonation and a dry finish. This is an outstanding IPA with great citrus flavor that I will look forward to every year.

A- Light gold, very effervescent. Looks kind of hazy, but that might just be lots of little bubbles. There’s a thin head that leaves a fair amount of lace along the sides of the glass as it dissipates.

S- Very citrusy, like orange and grapefruit juice. There’s maybe a little bit of a grassy or herbal note in there as well.

T- Just a hint of sweetness before the hops take over. They have a juicy citrus quality that definitely brings to mind orange juice but without the sweetness. Bitterness is pronounced, but pleasant. There’s a hint of alcohol on the finish, but it’s not strong.

M- Fairly light with pleasant carbonation. Exceedingly drinkable. It drinks like a much lower ABV beer.

The description of this beer promises something much different than a traditional IPA. I don’t know that it really delivers on that, but this is still a very solid beer. I love citrusy IPAs and this one is certainly quite citrusy, so I’m in. I can’t help but recommend this.
