ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014
From notes; November 1, ’13. A: Strong dry hop aroma (Galaxy hops), with pine needle notes and hints of caramel and citrus. A: Pours a golden orange, not much head or lacing. T: Lots of citrus and fresh hop bitterness comes through, with a strong caramel sweetness as well. Taste is better than the nose certainly. P: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth, slightly oily mouthfeel. O: Nothing special, the sweet maltiness confuses the taste, but a decent overall east coast DIPA.

Defreni (3006) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2016
Flaske. Orange diset øl. Sødlig duft der er en tand for meget. Smagen er igen for meget sødlig malt. Humlen er der men ikke nok. Ok øl men ikke mere end det.

Pretty standard IIPA... biscuity caramel base, piney resionous fruity hops. All working well together. Nothing wrong at all... Very good.

Pour is orange amber with thin white head. Pine aroma with some citrus. Flavor is big stonefruit biscuit malts upfront with a long pine finish. Nice work for a DIPA

bnokk (476) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 6, 2016
APPEARANCE- dark orange hues, fluffy white head. NOSE- for a DIPA, it’s a pretty mild nose. FLAVOR- definitly taste the big hop flavors. Of course, it’s heavy in galaxy. It’s not, but not overpowering and it finishes pretty smoothly. NOTES- I really like that this doesn’t smell huge, and has a balanced taste. Well done.

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 (1530) - 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 (9690) - 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
