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.

Citrus and hops smell. Taste was similar. Light grapefruit, and a strong bitter hops. Maybe it was the citrus that brought the hops on even stronger than I would have expected. Feel wasn't too 'tangy', despite the taste, and was definitely dry. Wish I could have seen this one...Drank it from the bottle at a housewarming party. Didn't want to be the guy who asked them to dig out their boxed-up glasses. I will definitely have this one again, so I'll update the rating next time around.

Pours an opaque, golden orange, with a foamy white head. Medium to light lacing. Citrus and hops tingle the nose when you take a sniff. Immediately upon taking a sip, there are notes of sweet citrus flavors, backed up by bitter hops. The sweet to bitter ratio is quite nice. As such, it is pleasant and easy to drink. The mouth feel is good. Overall, great beer right here. Pleased with it.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Got some on tap at the Bottleworks--it was so good that I took home a 64 oz. growler. Not bitter for an IPA, but still packs a lot of flavor. Was equally good a couple days later from the growler.
