Hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light, crisp and semi dry. Mild minerals. A little malt cream. Pleasant but light hops. Trace of lemon and lime with bitterish starfruit. Only a touch of mango and tropical fruits. Finishes bitterish and minerally. Not bad but Iíve had better Galaxy beers than this.

wlajwl (5546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Aroma is spices, a slightly odd dankness and sweetish malts. The flavor is spices, grapefruit, malts and a mix of tart, slight bitterness and heat in the finish

Pointclick (35) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2015
this has a beautiful colour when in a glass, a medium head. aroma of a lot of citrus and hard herbs. goes down very well. it is a light ipa abv sense. i get a nutty, citrus then floral taste, not to bitter for an ipa. it is single hopped though. its for sure a session able beer for australia.

gyllenbock (7298) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2015
Bottle at Kowloon Taproom. Amber with a small white head. On the sweet side with hops, caramel, light cookies and grapefruit. The body was medium and the finish a bit dry.

jredmond (7305) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Sampled at The Festival 2015 in St. Pete with Vinny. Pours a deep reddish amber body with sizeable head. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of ash and grains. Faint hop profile, spice, rye and pine.

highlandlad (1464) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2015
Flavoursome, peachy keen IPA. Might be better with a bit more alcoholic oomph. Copper with a short head. Oodles of white peach on the nose - very nice if thatís your bag. Light caramel notes, passionifruit and mango. Slightly brittle mouthfeel but gets away with it. Tastes like a superior Pacific Ale, which is not a huge recommendation in my book. Summer-fruit salad. Didnít seem that bitter, considering BR rates the hop profile as 9 out of 10. Slightly underwhelming. Iím just not enthusiastic about Galaxy as a stand-alone hop.

jbruner (3849) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of nice tropical zest, a hint of earth, and hops citrus notes. Taste is less resinous, but most of the same tones, a hint of the malty backbone. Bittersweet finish, clean but thick, not bad.

PhillyCraft (5474) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Sampled at the Festival, poured plum red with nice head. Notes were ashy grain water, muddled galaxy, and spicy pine. Assertive bitterness with a medium to fuller mouthfeel.

Ratman197 (12938) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle poured a hazy amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of caramel, grapefruit, light orange zest and a hint of tropucal fruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, grapefruit and pine with a crisp dry bitter lingering earthy finish.

marcus (8894) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Bottle from City Beer. Pours light amber with a thick white head and a floral aroma. There is a fairly bitter caramel malt flavor with a more bitter finish. Not real balanced, but lots of flavor for relatively low abv.

Color has a golden, murky appearance with foamy lacing. My first time isolating the Galaxy hop in an IPA. I find it to be rather dry but this IPA has some fruity passionfruit and considerable malt to balance it into a good offering. I still think the Galaxy alone is an acquired taste.
