nealm759 (34) - Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle super dank hop smell with a little malt sweetness, deep amber brown color with nice yellowish white lacing. Taste is amazing chewy galaxy flavor almost taste like a hop hash with a little malt backbone but not overly sweet palate leaves a citrus flavor on the tongue. Overall one of my favorite ipas I have had yet!

Tap. A brown with orange hint. Lift and fresh aroma. Not overly resin or citrus. Very nice balance of hops with some bitter notes and hints of vanilla undertones.

colui72 (605) - HONG KONG - JUN 22, 2016
Hazy orange with a medium white head, no lacing. Aroma of mango and resin. Taste is mango, pine, grass, booze. Mostly fruity and sweet at first but very hoppy later. Medium body and carbonation, very typical and tasty Imperial IPA. A good one!

thedm (5498) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated slightly hazy dark orange colored body and a very good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mildly bitter mild citrus and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

KoNrRiI (1095) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2016

0.355 bottle.
A delicately hazy, dark copper color and a large, off-white head of amazing retention. Aroma is obviously hoppy; grass, pines, and bark feature quite prominently but passion fruit, oranges, peaches, and mangoes still take the cake. Taste is a perfect mix between malty and hoppy flavors: mangoes, caramel, citruses, warm cereals, pines, bread, and strictly a bit of hops. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a virtually flat carbonation.

plaugher (343) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 13, 2016
12oz bottle. Murky golden-orange pour, moderate about of white bubbly head, much retention and lacing. Large up front hop aroma, with grapefruit and mango predominant. Sharp bitterness initially, but tropical sweetness comes through shortly thereafter, lingering dry bitterness. Wonderful IPA.

Smells amazing. Like big sticky dank green hops. I had this a while ago, but do not remember it being as hoppy as this. The aroma is like pineapple, mango juice. It’s sweet, but dry and juicy. You have to love galaxy hops. They make this ipa what it is. Tastes like tropical fruit juice. Highly recommend it, and everyone should drink more beers with galaxy hops. They’re amazing! Cheers

Thechasm442 (662) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle. Pour is a murky burnt orange with an average off white head and decent lacing. Aroma is pine, oranges, and light floral and tropical notes. Taste is dank pine resin, bitter citrus, grapefruit and orange mainly, dirt, and sour bread. Average to a bit thick and lingering. Nice beer.

Bottle at KØ16. Mild grassy aroma. Clear shiny golden colour. Small white head. The flavour is caramelly with a mild sweetness. Medium bitterness and a good creamy and isotonic mouthfeel.

Percy0103 (545) - MEXICO - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle, 355ml. A clear amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, alcohol and citrics. Taste is bitter with some carbonation and astringency. Medium bodied, dry and with a hoppy character. Bottled on october of 2015 and feels like one of those IPAs that you need to drink as soon as possible.
