Sampled draught as a 4 oz pour at the brewpub on January 19, 2014.
Listed to be 5.5% ABV.
Cloudy yellow to orange color, small white head. Very hoppy, green, recently opened hop bag scent, oh my god hoppy! Hoppy, bitter, grape fruit, citrus zest, pith taste, very bitter. Medium mouthfeel, very high bitterness. Not for me taste wise.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Funky Buddha MBCP release party. Plastic cup unfortunately but I understand. Too many people for snifters or pint glasses. Golden yellow pour with lots of carb. Two finger fluffy head that lasted. Aroma of pine, weed, grass, hay. The taste was very hoppy with pine, resin, weed, grass. Crisp finish, slightly bitter as well. Light body, medium carb. Nicely done IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crisp deep copper and orange coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit and resinous hops all with a good malt nose, some mild sweetness and a more pungent floral and citrus smell. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong malty flavour with a great and pungent citrusey hop flavour of grapefruit, lemons and oranges, all with a light sweetness and very herbal, grassy note. Aftertaste shows a great balance of malt and hops with an emphasis on the grassy, herbal notes and a strong grapefruit flavour at the end. Overall, a very well made APA or theoretically IPA, all with a nice balance and a strong citrusey character throughout. I sampled this pint on draught from Dunedin House of Beer in Dunedin, Florida earlier in the day on 02-January-2014.

Pours a clear golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head and good lace. Aroma is that zesty citrus and tropical fruit of New Zealand hops. Taste follows, nice bitter earthy ending. Pretty solid, I think I like galaxy hops a lot.
