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.

Color is perhaps the lightest I've ever seen in an IPA. If not for the cloudiness and the head, you might think like is a macro lager! The aroma is kind of funky. Off putting, actually. However, that funkiness isn't in the flavor. There is a fruitiness to it, but not quite like the citrus flavors from most hops. Mellow for an IPA, but I like it. Sneaky ABV at 7.2%

Gotta love the uniqueness. Bonus points just for that!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear gold with a billowing white head that lingers for some time.

S: Aromas of tangerine, navel orange, pineapple, mango, guava, herbs, grass, and biscuit are most pronounced on the nose.

T: Notes of tangerine, navel orange, lime, lemon, pineapple, mango, guava, grass, and herbs are balance by delicate notes of crackers, biscuits, minerals, and caramel. The finish is bitter, fruity, and mildly resinous with tangerine, navel orange, pineapple, and guava flavors giving way to subtle biscuit and caramel.

M: Medium-bodied and somewhat sticky in the mouth. Carbonation is initially a bit prickly, but quickly softens. Alcohol is very well hidden.

O: A nice IPA. This makes me wish more American brewers would experiment with Australasian hop varietals more frequently.

*12 oz. bottle* Look: Sunset orange body, 1 finger white head.

Smell: Very citrus (Oranges, lemon peel), toasted cracker sweetness, bit of mango and a touch of tropical flowers.

Taste: Mango, oranges, grapefruit, flowers, earthy leafiness, papaya, very solid malt backbone, semi dry mild bitter finish.

Feel: Medium smooth body, mediocre carbonation.

Overall: This is solid and also very tasty. I’m glad I tried this ale. This is balanced and enough hop flavor that it lands on what could be DIPA status. The bitter factor isn’t offensive. If you like exotic fruits/flower flavors in your beer, this is a go to. This beer is recommended.

Look - yellow color with a good head and slight lacing
smell - great galaxy hop scent, tropical fruit... pineapple citrus scents. Great malt backbone.
taste - pineapple and lemon citrus taste like the smell but still with that good maltiness. Sweet but not to sweet and not to bitter as well.
feel - medium body and carbonation.
overall - fantastic Galaxy IPA. Love galaxy hops!
