Sam Adams Intros Small Batch Series with Tasman Red

Sam Adams Tasman Red

Sam Adams is introducing a small batch series of ales, starting with the above – Tasman Red.    The series will feature limited edition brews, presumably from experimental batches, and previously draft only brews.

Label:
This wily red IPA gets its character from the Tasmanian hops that are full of grapefruit, pine, and earthy notes creating a bold flavor that threads throughout the taste.  The hops are balanced by a core of roasty malts that give this brew body and richness with hints of toffee.  This flavorful brew is rounded and smooth with a dry citrusy hop finish.  

 At Sam Adams we love experimenting.  This series of limited edition brews represents some of our favorite small batch creations.  Batch No. 1

Style: IPA
Hops:  Topaz, Galaxy.  Imported from Tasmania.
Malts: Two-Row Harrington, Metcalfe, Copeland Pale, Special B, Caramel 60, Roasted Dehusked malt

Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft
Arrival: TBA

6.5% ABV

  1. This is what I look for in an IPA-type beer. Balance ! Lots of malt AND hops.Not for those who want to be bludgeoned by IBU’s at or near the triple digit level.
    Nice red color, caremelly malt flavors, and hopiness like a combo of European and high alpha American hops.
