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

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.

The hop bitterness is just right, a little spicey mixed with resin. The finish is just long enough to enjoy without overpowering any food you are eating. Aroma is freshly crushed herbs and where the malt is most noticeable.
Great with chilli con carne or olive and cheese. Mouth felt clean but not too dry afterward.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 330 ml bottle, poured a deep hazy amber with a tight white head. Pine and tropical fruit on the nose. Taste is surprisingly malt-driven, with some deep caramel flavours dominating up front. The hops kick in after that, with passionfruit, lemon and pine resin coming through. Not as aggressively bitter as I was expecting, but shows good hop characters. Good body with an oily texture. Nice long palate. Decent English-style IPA.
