COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As awesome as the cosmos, as bitter as the void... Galaxy Slayer takes no interstellar prisoners with the help of a few good men. He leads a crusade against the total corruption of outer space. It’s cold up there, and dark. "Impose radio silence. Over."

[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ mini snifter ][ 05.01.16 ]
hazy gold, puffy white head, dense and well-lacing. Right amount of grapefruit and sugar in nose, solid balance. Front palate more sugary, orange comparisons with heavy carbonation, mid palate soapy with light resin, more C-zest. Finishes too sweet, heavy carbonation leaves foamy feel.

Bomber. New bomber from the 18th facility, guess the previous ratings were from the pipeworks days. Some tropical fruits. Banana, guava, passion. Bitter floral hops. Alright. This one seems to be on the border of the single and double IPA.
