3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Poppers on the Mill. Hazy dirty gold color, thick head with retention. Nose is a real nice mix of grapefruit, mango, tart pineapple and some traces of resin. Flavors are highly hopped with a big citrus overtones, grass and dank bitterness on the finish. Lots of lingering bitterness. Very alive, green leafy hop notes as well. Damn this is a crazy amount of hop juice! Hop junkies can get a fix on this one!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 growler/swingtop via a kick ass friend in Maine. Big thanks! Pours a clear rust orange appearance with a nice, cream colored head. Very potent, kind of cake-like, grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, spicy, a bit dank hoppy aroma. This really smells nice! Tasting this, itís almost like sucking on a really fresh hop cone. Somewhat bitter, herbal, spicy hoppy flavor with a pretty nice, caramel malt back bone and tons of citrus and tropical fruit. Finishes pretty bitter and the bitterness lingers quite a while. The bitterness is somewhat harsh but this is a nice beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a rich orange copper color with a finger or two of sticky eggshell foam. On the nose its a mango bomb, candied orange and some woody pine touches. The palate follows the nose with a hop smacking juicy tropical mango palate that has a huge bitterness that overtakes the fruit from mid palate all the way through the finish... but then the fruit sneaks back in and says remember me ! As the beer warms to room temp the bitterness falls back a touch and the mango notes really open up beautifully. I bought a handful of growlers for friends but some have went undelivered because Ive been crushing them on my own... one after another !

Growler refill from the source for $9. To wine glass, it pours a amber dark orange: trim sudsy head one finger in length. Smells of galaxy hops. Tastes of galaxy hops. Grapefruit zest also prominently noticeable. Smooth and thin and crisp and lovely. I get kilned malt/Vienna underlying the hops. Marshmallows and vanilla by swallow. Good, but I guess I was expecting more.
