3fourths (8499) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2012
clear sparkling pale gold with a tall large-bubbled white head. perfumed white grape and brett band-aid / plastic in the first whiff, developing more spice and fruit notes as it opens. lively carbonation, light body, mild to medium tartness, mild oak presence. wonderfully explosive but still soft carbonation across the middle, it’s surprisingly full and rotund for having such a light and delicate malt base. dry white wine and floral esters and brett must abound. a bit herbal at times, then more floral, then more wheat-focused, then a combination of white grapes and brett that comes across a little like botrytis. shape-shifting, restrained, balanced and delicious.

Bottle. Pours a very pale amber, with a big white head. Aroma is fresh and citrusy hop, with some malt and spice in the background. Flavor is moderately dry and bitter, with just a little funk coming through. Decent but not as interesting as I was hoping for. I would not age this as the hop aroma is too important to lose.

Sask89 (498) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Pours a very hazy pale yellow colour with a really frothy white head. Aroma is hoppy with slight citrus fruit scents, lemon peel, coriander, and Belgian yeast. Taste is mildly sweet and a little bitter but falls a little flat. Light body, flatter carbonation, and thin on the palate. Overall a nice but below average beer for me.

JakeG (26) - Sherwood Park, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2015
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a huge white foamy head. Aroma of citrus, grassy, tropical fruits and a bit of spice. Taste is similar. Bitter finish. Kind of thin on the palate but still a good beer.

750ml bottle from El Cerrito Liquor in Corona, California. Batch #7, October 2014. Hazy pale yellow in colour with a large lingering white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is grassy, lots of citrus, tropical fruits, some spice. Flavour is moderately bitter, herbal, lemon citrus, yeasty. Finishes lingering, bitter, dry.

RickTheRick (566) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2015
** Batch #6 / Avril 2014 ** La Galaxy White IPA, une des bières régulières de Anchorage, est bien plus qu’une simple combinaison entre une IPA aux accents tropicaux et une witbier. C’est plutôt une succulente symphonie de saveurs qui s’enchevêtrent parfaitement pour créer une bière d’une cohésion exemplaire. Pâle et trouble, une couronne de mousse blanche immaculée se dresse fièrement sur le dessus de la bière. Je déguste actuellement une bouteille qui date d’un an, les propriétés aromatiques du houblon Galaxy se sont donc estompées un peu. Les brettanomyces profitent alors de cette chance inouïe pour exprimer pleinement leur côté surtout funky, parfois poussiéreux et tantôt fruité. En bouche, tout coule admirablement bien, des saveurs épicées prenant d’assaut le palais lorsque la bière atteint la température idéale. Le tout s’étale dans une finale résolument amère, sèche et tannique.

From a bomber into a glass. Pours a cloudy yellow with a heavy head. Aroma is of spice, Brett, fruit, and vinous notes. The taste is almost overwhelming to the palate; it's a spicy, savory pepper with dank, grassy hops. There are also subtle touches of citrus and earth. A phenomenal IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Galaxy White IPA packs so much weirdness in such a lovely, light-bodied ale. The pale, cloudy liquid is the thinnest shade of yellow. The head is tremendous. Aroma showcases spice, Brett, fruit, and vinous notes. The taste is almost overwhelming to the palate. There’s just so much here. Spicy, savory pepper. Dank, grassy hops. Vinegar-like sour yeast. There are also more subtle touches of citrus and earth. Galaxy White IPA isn’t just seriously classy, it’s evidence of the White IPA’s versatility and continual evolution as a style.

Bottle. A- Funky, barnyard, citrus, champagne, brett, spices, sour. A- Lemon yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Super funky, barnyard, citrus, champagne, dry, subtle spice, sour. P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, funky finish. O- I have been so excited to try this as I love love love White IPAs. Finally found this and tried it. Wow. Not good. At all. Nothing like a White IPA at all. It says drink fresh or age to bring out the funk. Apparently the funk sets in really fast. With about 5 months of age on it it was as funky and as much barnyard aspects as you could get. Super sour and funky. A major let down for me. I’m almost afraid to drink the Whiteout Wit now. Why couldn’t they leave out the brett.
