COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Australian Galaxy & American Cascade Hops create an intense hop aroma and flavor balanced with a medium malt body yielding a very drinkable American-style India Pale Ale.

Fresh can. Pours murky gold with tall white frothy head. Aroma is peach, floral, some pineapple and grapefruit, tangerine. Taste is more citrus than hop, sweeter rather than some of the crisp, spicy notes from the hops. You do get a nice, slightly bitter resinous finish.

Medium bodied, yellow IPA with a ton of head. Bready malts accented by some nice pine hops. Tried at the Celebration and the Station in KC in 2014.

16oz can. Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick frothy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, orange zest, and grapefruit. Taste of caramel malt, grapefruit zest, lemon, orange, and pine.

Clear gold with a tall, lasting, off-white head. Citrus and pine aroma. Slightly bitter flavor with some dryness making itís appearance in the finish.

edwardbass (478) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bomber. Color is dark amber, with a frothy head that clings to the glass. Aroma is just malty with a little pine hops. Taste feels like something is missing. A nice pine bitterness, though it is harsh, some malt breadiness/sweetness that seems to disappear quickly and leaves that "somethingís missing" feeling. Quite high carbonation with a medium body that seems to drop out from under it mid-taste to a low body. Not a bad IPA, but not quite a good one....just, just missing the "good" status.

Dorwart (2356) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Thin head of off- white bubbles. Cloudy orangish brown in color. Mild hops aroma with some spicy aromas, dark roasted malts, some tea leaves and toffee peanuts. Flavor is uninspiring to say the least. Flat malts, sour bitterness, rather harsh too. Had much higher hopes for the taste of this brew. Just not good all the way around. Pasty, dry, harsh bitterness. Blech.

nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2014
22oz bomber. Hazy yellow-orange-tan body. Frothy off-white head. A well done IPA, capturing some nice Australian hop tones alongside classic Cascade. Quality offering for sure, quite balanced and tasty, hop forward, quality ingredients. Iím OK not calling it a Double IPA, but it certainly comes close. Big, full bodied. Zesty straw and light tropical fruit in the aroma, steady grapefruit (cascade) guiding it. Exceeded my expectations.

Sammy (8348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
Nice galaxy IPA. Smooth drinking, mild orange without any off note or astringency. Lace sheet on light orange body. Recent bottle.

Bottle shared with Yanick. Pours orange gold with white head. Nose and taste of pine, resin, toasted grain and caramel malt. Lighter medium body. Finishes grainy/dry.

On tap at Sugar Maple. Hazy golden amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is dank and resinous with pine, pale malt and some breadiness. Taste is semi-sweet and dank with pine, floral hops and mild citrus. Moderate bitterness on the finish.
