laiti (6567) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 25, 2015
35,5 cl bottle @ Bishops Arms, Ume. Aroma is nice with tropical fruits and resiny tones. Flavour is somewhat heavy and sweet with resin, pine needles, fruity hops and some gooseberry bush. Also mellow gluey tones. Fruity and nice. A DIPA? Well, I thought this would be an IPA. Or American strong.

TimE (3855) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 17, 2015
amber color Hugely hoppy heady nose. Like sticking your nose into a fresh bag of hops. The mouth is very heady, strong, full bodied, like chewy on a hop cone, but decent enough baclbone to balance things out. ber hoppy and lovely.

drjay44 (2860) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Bottled 9/29/14. Pours a thick well retained, ivory head, with heavy lacing, over a hazy amber (SRM 10) body....nose is tropical fruits, with peach, passion fruit, hints of pine, base cereal malts, balance to the hops......taste is slightly sweet, with light floral honey motes, tropical fruits with citrus, passion fruit, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds light creaminess. This is a nicely balanced, but slightly hop dominated IPA. The Galaxy adds a different set of aromas and flavors from the more typically hopped IPA with much lower bitterness. BJCP 9/3/14/4/7

Ok beer not hoppy enough. Doesn't taste like a double IPA. Typical of clown shoes. Disappointing.

ninecats (256) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2015
Bottle at Butlers, Uddevalla. Clear deep orange, big fluffy white head with yellow nuances, lots of sticky lacings, nice. Aroma is juicy fruity with a bitter side to it, lots of resin, oranges, slight honey. Taste starts quite big malty fruity, with resins, citrus, slight sweet touch before a real bitterness kicks in, lastung until the end which also finishes dry with zest. Medium body, medium carbo, sticky texture. Solid, Id like to try this fresh on tap.

Old rating. Pretty strong IPA. Darker orange. Big citrus punch. Solid caramel malt body that was balanced well with the fruity sweetness and bitterness. Good stuff.
