Schlafly / The Saint Louis Brewery Tasmanian IPA

What the brewers say

“The Tasmanian hops, Galaxy, is a strong, aromatic variety that is different from traditional strains of the Pacific Northwest. Our brewers developed a recipe that showcases the hops’ unique flavors of citrus and pineapple.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Nice tropical fruit character with mango and passion fruit. Some lemon grassiness adds some nice contrast to the juiciness. Juicy mango, banana, peach, and pineapple. Very subtle light malt presence—perhaps a little wheat?”

Flavor: “A wonderfully balanced beer that has a huge amount of fruity hops flavor up front that evolve to show more pine and dank character. Strong overripe banana, pineapple, and mango. Suggestions of earthiness are fleeting. Nice silky carbonation on the tongue. As in the aroma, the flavor suggests some wheat and the light fluffiness that implies.”

Overall: “A delicious and balanced beer that highlights the hops selection nicely. A refreshing, not-too-crazy, well-executed IPA. It’s smooth, it’s spritzy, and it just tastes good. This is a great choice any time of year.”
