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.

Gorgeous hazy orange gold color. Scent is grapefruit with a touch of sweet pineapple, and the taste follows the nose. The citrus quality of the galaxy hops, while prominent, is relatively restrained compared to some single hop galaxy beers, but this not a criticism. So while the beer is about the hops, it's not over the top. Texture is on the light side for an IPA, which makes this a refreshingly easy drinker at over 7% ABV.

12oz bottle, dated 08/31/2015. Pours a cloudy orange, with a light head that lasts . Aroma is of spicy hops, with some fruit. Taste is sweet and fruity, with a bit of piney hops; smooth finish. Light mouth-feel.

I had this just after having Oskar Blues Pinner, and I like this one better; the TIPA is not as intense on the pine flavor, but it's still there. A solid IPA.

L- On the light side, lots of particles floating

S- Not a big nose. Mostly grapefruit, some lemon, maybe a bit of pine.

T- It's bitter. Again grapefruit but not much else going on.

F- On the thin side for an IPA but totally acceptable.

O- felt like this was just bitter for bitter's sake. Zero balance. I imagine some people prefer this to "fruity" IPA's but honestly I may as well have bitten a grapefruit. Nothing actually wrong with it but lacks complexity.

Look - Poured a small one finger head that dissipated quickly. Very light for an IPA, light amber, hazy, lot's of floaties and debris.

Smell - Floral, pineapple, citrus, tropical, dankness, pine.

Taste - Follows the nose. Pineapple, lemon zest, orange, spice, pine, bright, lower malt character, moderate bitterness. Enjoyable and unique IPA with a very hoppy taste without much of a malt balance at all.

Feel - Medium body, slightly sticky.

Overall - Enjoyable and recommended to try if you are a hop head. Not really a west coast but not as full and sweet as IPA's that carry a more balanced malt character.

Tastes like a Soul Style IPA from Green Flash to me only a bit more drinkable.

L: A yellow golden beauty. Poured with two fingers of white head. It remained a few sips in. Left some nice spider web lacing.

S: Citrus, pineapple, mango.

T: Taste followed the nose. More pineapple and mango. Absolutely delicious. Almost zero hints of pine.

F: Medium bodied and moderately carbonated.

O: Easily one of my all time favorites. I'll be picking up another six.

A - nice golden amber murky color, white head that sticks and leaves nice lacing
S - Nice bitter grapefruit, overly ripe fruit, dank, mango, papaya, kiwi
T - Immediate fresh orange/lemon/lime zest, bitter grapefruit rind, kiwi, mango, papaya, very dry, almost no malt character is discernable (which is a good thing for an IPA)
M - light - medium mouthfeel, alc is completely covered, after taste is bitter citrus peel, fresh citrus fruit, bitter
O - this is an awesome beer, and a nice surprise for Missouri. I have a hard time finding great beers from Missouri other than the big Boulevard Beers and Mother's Milf. This is probable the first rock solid IPA I've had from Missouri.
