COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlafly 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 hopís unique flavors of citrus and pineapple.

Aroma is grape-y and grassy. Reminds me of Toppling Goliath IPAs-both in expression of hops and the clean, wheaty malt profile.

Very light in color for an ipa. Smells very floral and citrusy. There are many ipa's I would drink before this one, but it was very drinkable with a nice bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops with mango, peach and pear esters with cracker and biscuit malt. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness with light malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours lighter than I had imagined it would a yellowish gold hue. Aroma is the only area that lacks as it wafts light hop (I assume Nelson Sauvin which is light in the other beers I have sampled that feature it). However the flavor is big and very, very balanced with focused hop profile that is slightly tropical and citrusy while being lightly grassy at the same time. The mouthfeel is just a tad light for my tastes but I wonít dock it points for that. Overall this is a great beer very drinkable, in fact on the the most easy drinking of this style I have every had.

Hazy mustard pour with fair white head. Wow! what a nose! Sweet and fruity mango nose and flavor. Big pineapple and mango kick. Really awesome. The bitterness was a bit over the top on the finish, and ruined the balance that it had. But this is a damn good ipa! Iíd put it on the level of hopslam or nugget nectar.

Big thanks to Mike and Abbie for this one! One of my favorite new IPAs from last year for sure. Bright glowing orange pour, so vibrant and lustrous and inviting. Huge tropical fruit nose, but nothing artificial about it - just clean and ripe. Bitters and modest malts in the taste, superbly refreshing and balanced and complex. Loved it.

Consumed on release in Kansas, Packaging is perfect on this one - everything about this is citrusy tropical juice from pour to tongue. Very juicy with moderate complexity and slight bitterness (for an ipa), really good without being complex

Reviewed 3/1/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a hazy straw color. The head is a two finger white shade with a nice, creamy texture. As per usual in the style, it leaves rings of lacing as it recedes down the glass. S: I really like the tropical fruit bend this one offers. Augmenting the fruitiness is some herbal pine characteristics. Sadly, itís nowhere near as showstopping as it could be (or probably was; the bottleís over 2 months old), largely due to a lot of biscuity malt shining through. T: A lot of melon, mango, papaya, and guava appears at first, before spiking in intensity at the midtaste. The finish introduces a moderately bitter, peppery bite thatís almost minty at times. For a two month old IPA featuring a feeble malt backbone, this is downright fantastic. M: Light and crisp, yet with a surprising level of creaminess to meld with the smooth yet firm carbonation. The flavors leave the palate quickly as they should in an IPA of this nature. Almost supremely refreshing; if the finishing astringency was cleaned up a smidge, Iíd reckon the score here would be even higher. O: The apex of this offeringís hop profile may have been lost - but the thirst-quenching, easy drinking demeanor definitely hasnít. Iíd seriously consider buying this by the case when itís fresh and in season.

Bottle from Matt McCue, thanks brother. Pours a clear pale straw color with nice head. nose is citrus, earthy and biscuity, first sip is beautiful, bright citrus cumquat, meyer lemon and lime, balanced quickly with perfect sweet malt. finish is clean with citrue peal flavors that linger. my kind of beer.
