BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Schlafly Tap Room
Missouri, United States

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.

Pours a hazy gold with a big white head that leaves lacing everywhere. I get a tone of pineapple and some peach in the nose with a nice malty sweetness. There is also a bit of pine there as well. The taste is fruity at first and then there is a big pine blast that lingers along with a nice malty sweetness. This is a tasty IPA.

-Spiegelau ipa.

A: Turbid orange juice coloring, dirty ivory colored head is frothy, slight with an average rate of retention lapsing to a washy covering. Light display of spacious carbonation bubbles rise leisurely.

S: Fresh lemony flair, right from the bottle with some tropical fruit, orange-pineapple and slight hint of wet peach. Decent awareness, keeps for awhile.

T: Flowery semi-dry orange hops, tropical sense, with a good rate of dry hopping on the end. Citrusy-orange flavor has a raw, dry , flowery sense, providing a big bitterness and dryness. Lemon peel dry hopping rounds out.

M: Slightly creamy, medium body, dry hopping bitterness bites the inner cheeks with a good awareness. Good crispness.

O: Overall a big bite of raw flowery hops, tropical, nice coloring with a in your face amount of ibus. Flavor seems a bit rough around the edges, raw, not individually defined but will best serve those looking for a citra like, hop punch that is all about the bitterness.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. bottled on date of 11/17/2015.

Look -- 2 fingers of white head atop a hazy, but not turbid, pale gold body. It leaves wonderful lacing as you drink it down.

Smell -- Pineapple, grapefruit, a bit of orange, hints of resin and hoppy floralness. Fantastic.

Taste -- Orange, pineapple, and resin are what come through the most along with a nice lingering bitterness that is counterbalanced by some malty sweetness.

Feel -- Moderate body but the carbonation is fairly low and so it hangs a bit heavy on the tongue. It's a bit like drinking apple juice with just the slightest hint of carbonation.

Overall -- The one word description is juicy. It's a delightful showcasing of the fruit flavors that can come from hops. My only complaint is the mouthfeel, I wish it was a little more carbonated.

Poured at flying saucer in Nashville Hazy yellow white like a wit, but with a grassy creamy head. Preserved lemon on the nose. Dank buttery lemon grass hop, nicely balanced. A bit heavy handed but not unexpected for a triple. Quite robust

As I stood in the chilled sixers section of Crown Liquors, I contemplated what beer would best excite my palette on another thrilling Friday night.

Suddenly, a hairy hand appeared from beyond the glass, sliding a single six pack of Schlafly TIPA onto the bottom rack. Curious, I stooped down just enough to make out "Tasmanian India Pale Ale". I was sold.

Look: A golden dawn, shrouded in mist

Smell: Citrusy and floral with a hint of pine

Taste: An immediate sweet and sour note followed up with a piney bite. Tastes like someone crossed a tangerine tree with a pine tree and milked its sap. I love it.

Feel: Has a bit of a heavy feel that hangs in your mouth. Probably the only unpleasant thing about this beer.

Overall: The unique taste really carries this beer. It reminds me a bit of Milky Way White IPA by Anchorage Brewing Company but a little more drinkable. Definitely recommended for something different.
