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.

On tap at “Paragon Tap and Table” in Clark. Pours hazy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and tangy. Citrusy hops, tropical fruit, bready malt fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry and grapefruity. Excellent brew.

I have seen this brew discussed in several recent forums as an under the radar treasure. While scanning the shelves of a local bottle shop, lo and behold, there was a small display of six packs of the Tasmanian IPA on the floor (bottled on 9/26/14). Without hesitation, I scooped one up.

I'm far from being an IPA connoisseur, but this is an excellent IPA (aroma and flavor of ruby red grapefruit). I've had several IPAs with larger reputations (mostly with dubious freshness), but I would put this one right up there with some of the greats!

9/18/14 12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A- Pours bright golden almost like a pilsner or helles. It has a lemon-skin color sort of. Fluffy and foamy head is abundant and leaves a ton of lace behind. I notice some yeasty cloudiness at the end of the pour. 4

S- Smells a bit dated. Faded citrus, earthy, resinous and herbal. There's a pungent aroma there I can't quite describe. Faint caramel and bread. 3.5

T- Very interesting flavor. Tastes of passionfruit linger but I find a lot more malt upfront, sweet and caramel- and bread-heavy. The hops seem very wet hop-like, grassy, faintly onion-like, and again earthy and resinous. 4

M- It's lively and well-carbonated. Medium-bodied with a mellow bitterness at the finish. 4

Good brew. I'm curious how much the month and a half made. Reading the bottle it describes a lot of citrus, but I didn't get much. I'll revisit some day.

Updating my review on this, because this beer deserves more attention than it gets. Poured from a 12oz glass into a snifter.

A - Really an attractive beer. Carbonation is spot on, with great head retention and lacing. Clean, deep golden goodness.

S - Huge tropical kick from the galaxy. Plays nicely with the 2-row grains.

T - Piney and tropical as all get out. Strikes a nice balance between the current orange-juice-beer trend and the classic bitter IPA.

M - Solid. Balanced, spot-on carbonation. Ever so slightly astringent.

O - This beer deserves more attention than it gets. Nice job Schlafly, I'd long underestimated you.
