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 beer was bottled on the 9th of September and is fairly mature for an IPA but given its prior reviews I decided to give it a try since there are indications it lasts fairly well.

The beer pours out into a Duvel glass a lightly hazed apricot color with a 1" fluffy white head that slut sowly but visibly recedes to an irregular patch of foam and and thin cover on the rest of the liquid. As it recedes it leaves a heavy pattern of lacing. Sipping leaves some scattered long slender legs of lacing.

The aromas include some pineapple, what seems to be mango and some citric orange zest with a touch of hop resin floating around in there.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with the pineapple, mango and orange zest. In addition the moderate amount of resinous bitterness stands out more than it did as one of the aromas.

The mouth feel is medium bodied and both smooth and prickly with some light gentle carbonation. The finish is medium length and begins as the tropical fruit flavors begin to disappear followed by the orange zest leaving the resinous bitterness to slowly disappear as the palate goes dryer and dryer to invite the next sip.

Overall I thought this was a well made beer that I've enjoyed giving a try. Since this is a fall release I doubt I'll be picking up any more this year. I will, however, be putting it on my list to get some of in the Fall next year when it is a bit younger. However, I suspect this is an IPA that ages gracefully as I certainly have no complaints about the aromas and flavors.

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: An opaque lemon yellow with an off-white one finger head that dissipated to foamy and bubbles. Light lacing.

S: Mangoes, lemons, oranges.

T: Almost like a saison. Lemon-y goodness. Finish is grassy with Belgian elements. Citrus love abounds. Very low bitterness.

M: Medium with medium to high carbonation. A dry finish.

O: A nice change of pace. Those Aussie hops really shine.

bottled on 11/17/15, consumed on 11/27/15 so very excited for this beer and the freshness.

pours a light orange with a thick white head.

smell is unique, full of sweet hops but is not the usual hop variety; some nice Aussie hops.

taste is sweet with slight bitterness. i like the hops on this, not overpowering but very flavorful. finishes dry and bitter. each sip reminds of starburst, both the candy and the astronomical event in a strange way.

overall a pretty damn good beer. not my favorite IPA but a beer i would totally buy again. the Aussie hop fascination is interesting to me. they are citrus hops but not in the same way as American citrus hops. i prefer a quality combination of American hops but this beer is unique and well made. i imagine this being a ridiculously great beer for warm weather.

bottled 9/15/16 and enjoyed 10/1/16
pours hazy light gold with a solid head, looks pretty good.
aroma is amazing, light and juicy. Galaxy hops ooze out of this.
tremendous flavor, full of hop flavor which makes this light, juicy, bitter yet sweet. finishes sweet and bitter, great flavor.

one of the better IPAs that are easy to find (at least for me). this beer fresh is pretty damn good, i love Galaxy hops so this is amazing. light and bitter

Appearance of a light lager with nice lacing. Wonderful citrus notes of grapefruit and pineapple. Smell is equivalent to its taste. This is a top 3 IPA and one that could only be better if the Aussie hops weren't seasonal and this Schlafly offering was available year round .
