355 ml bottle @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Rated on 24.2.2013.
Pours a hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma of floral hops, mandarin orange and kiwi. Flavour is well balanced with notes of strong floral hops, sweet fruits, pine, herbs and sweetness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a clean, high bitter and fruity finish. I wish I could get this every day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at Patricks. A finger-thick, off-white head settles over an almost clear golden body. Quite pine and resiny aroma, with some maltiness. Medium to full body, nice carbonation. The flavour has a pleasant bitterness, with the hops dominating. A bit short finish, but overall a nice beer. 130214

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not bad, but not an great beer by any means. Just a little on the boring side for me, too much hoppy bitterness without the lovely galaxy flavours. Average

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Great looking IPA! The aroma is one sustained note of passionfruit - classic galaxy vibe. The taste is the same, but far more restrained. Not bitter at all! Definitely an easy going India Pale. Great finish though - doesn’t destroy the palate like most. Lovely IPA all round - fruity smell and flavour.
