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.

Served in a Schlafly shaker pint glass. Pours a clear, light peach color. Good head and lacing. Nose is quite juicy with wet hops and quite a bit of orange and citrus. Tropical background. Body is dry and quite bitter. Drinkable, but bitterness is a bit too much for the body thatís there.

Bottle. Pale clear yellow color, fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of grass, scallions, lemon peel is detectable from across the room. Taste is bitter lemongrass. Terrific stuff.

Pours a clear golden with a finger or so of an eggshell head thatís leaving some soapy lace. Nose is all kinds of hop goodness: citrus rind, pine needles and resin, lots of galaxy tropical fruit like pineapple and passionfruit, and some dankness. Itís quite invigorating. Taste is surprisingly pretty sweet underneath the high bitterness level. Palate is lighter, crisp, fairly actively carbonated with a drying bitter finish. I feel like itís definitely lighter bodied than the AIPA, which I kind of like better for featuring this particular hop profile. Good stuff, will seek some more.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle at Henlopen City Oyster House. Nice gold pour with a lasting white head. Holy cat piss hops! Big, big, big catty nose! The flavor is all hops, all the time with lots of pineapple, catty hops and slight tropical undertones. Smooth on the palate with a very long, bitter finish. A little one dimensional, but still pretty tasty.

Damn fine IPA. Agree with many of the other reviews that think this is the best IPA theyíve tried in awhile. Very light malt profile. The very citrusy and grapefruity hops are showcased here. Nice bitterness. Lighter body makes it easier to drink. The hops are bountiful yet donít overwhelm your palate. Great beer.

Yep, one of the best ipaís I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. The head was tiny with little lacing. It was a bit piney but the hops were were so eye opening that it smoothed out the sweetness that was on the finish. So glad I picked this up. A true IPA legend that I wonít forget.

Finhead (1215) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Clear, pale gold with a white head. The aroma has some nice grapefruit and mild pine. It has a light, oily texture with lively carbonation. The taste is pretty sweet for an IPA, but there is bitterness in the background.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2012 Simply one of the best IPAís Iíve had the pleasure to partake of. Awesome on the nose with citrus very evident. My kind of IPA and by that I mean it smells awesome, tastes awesome and finishes the same. Dry, bitter and not very sweet - hops with just enough malt to give it a balance. Pours clear, deep gold with moderate white head. A great addition to the Schlafly lineup!

November 6, 2012 on tap at cicero. Clear golden pour with head and spotty lacing. Seemed to be more piney hops but maybe a touch of citrus in the aroma. Taste was consistent but it was balanced very well with the malt. Light carbonation and thin bodied.

dear...lord...The hop aroma startled me not just in itís pungency or potency, but also in the fact that it reminded me of sweat. And I thought to myself "this is the only time i will say that sweat smells good, someone should bottle this stuff" bear in mind that i thought that while sniffing out of a bottle...Kevin, the beer guy at my local beer store poured me a taste of this in store and wow...it smells like grapefruit and oranges, and lemon and sweat all rolled in one! It tasted like that too, but to a slightly lesser degree. I had to buy the six-pack, and i did. and it was awesome. you should too if you get a chance.
