Fatehunter (2243) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Pours two and half fingers of head on a hazy darker straw colored body. The aroma is lots of mango and papaya with grapefruit in the background. The taste starts with a dry bitterness, mild honey sweetness, then super bitter pine, some tropical fruit to mellow it a bit and finishes on a mild bitter note. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Big bitter, but with a variety of flavors.

Draught @ Albion. Cloudy rich amber with small light beige frothy head, orange peel/floral hops aroma, low carbonation, medium bitter orange peel taste, somewhat thick body, medium bitter longish finish, a bit soapy, Flavorful, nicely rounded.

lharts (17) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 19, 2016
As IPA’s go, this is really big and really delicious. The Galaxy Hop blend shines through and delivers that characteristic tropical stone fright aroma and flavour on the pallet.

McWorta (1516) - LUXEMBOURG - AUG 26, 2016
Light amber copper colour with an off white fine poring head. Aromas of bread, hay, dank grass, pine and some tropical fruit develops. Fine carbonation, slick, full bodied. Light caramel-toast sweetness up front surpassed by bold resinous hop bitterness. Lasting finish.

Fin (9588) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle at The Blind Tiger, Shrewsbury, Friday 26th August 2016 Clear gold with a nice sparkle and a nice white head. Fruity nose, juicy in the mouth, a much more swiggable beer than my Clown Shoes Galactica. Tropical in mouth and on the nose. Really nice. A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8

Cajun (388) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle - Pours a medium amber, creamy head, good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine. Big hops flavor (citrus, pine)... honestly like any other good quality IPA I’ve ever tasted, no different. Good and tasty, I liked it. But nothing outstanding.

slowrunner77 (10116) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Decent IPA - not terribly fresh or old. Moderate bitterness. Spicy earthy and grapefruit forward nose and flavor. Good enough, but doesn’t stand out in a crowd.
