ericdevin (872) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle at Les Caves, Corvallis. Pours a pale clear straw color, just a little bit of head. Aroma lovely, Brett but also some tropical fruit, fresh pine. Body lively and dry with a subtle resinous bitterness, sneaky as far as an IPA goes. Some spice character in finish, but very little in nose.

2013 bottle. No carbonation. Last of the bottle so very cloudy straw yellow. Smell still has plenty of citrus with the coriander being dominate. A little of the peppercorn come through. All wrapped in a funkiness. The taste is similar with a tannic, dry bitterness and a bready character. Mouthfeel is flat and dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (753) - Missouri, USA - NOV 2, 2014
July 2013 bottle. Pours a hazy light golden yellow with hardly any head or lacing. Aroma is lightly fruity and earthy with peppercorn spiciness and brett character. Taste is earthy with big brett character and light fruitiness. Has some citrus rind bitterness along with the spiciness from the peppercorns. Finishes very dry with that moderate rind bitterness. Very low carbonation which surprised me with a light body. Very good even after a year in the bottle. Drinks more like a farmhouse ale than an IPA.

Very pale with minimal head, looks almost like champagne. Overly fizzy, citrusy initial taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste like lemon pith. (K)

Sour, funky, cheesy aroma with white wine character. Golden yellow, cloudy with white head. Citrus, sour funk in flavor. Expected more from galaxy hop.

MrFecesious (1065) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle share. Hazy yellow. Great aroma of barnyard funky cheese, hay, citrus, floral. Taste is excellent bitter sweetness. Crisp and refreshing. Medium dry finish.

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle. Mopderate malt note of grain, heavy hops of grapefruit and orange peel, moderate soap for the yeast, with pineapple and coriander in the background. Head is large between fizzy and frothy, white with some spots of lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy pale yellow. Flavor starts moderately acidic and heavily bitter, then has a long heavy bitter finish. Palate is medium, watery, with a fizzy carbonation. The spice and fruit additions to this IPA are perfect.

rosenbergh (7238) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2014
750 ml bottle. Batch #2. Bottled Apr/2012. Cloudy pale yellow colour with a ridiculously huge foamy white. The aroma is fruity hops, sweetness, mild brett and white wine. The flavour is some hops, mild sweetness, mild bitterness and some candies. A bit unfresh... well it's not that fresh anymore. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at SBWF 2014. Snekk if ripe fruits, apples and hops. Similar taste. Funky with a light "toilette" aroma.
