Copper pour with a 1 finger, yellow beige head. Aroma is sweet citrus and caramelized tropical fruit salad right up front, booze, biscuit, caramel and a sort of sharp fruity cheese note that I can’t really put my finger on, like cheddar and tart berry puree or something. Flavor is sweet caramel, pale malt, sweet berry, melon and tropical fruit, tart and bitter citrus, hot booziness, and a weird, every fruit and vegetable in the fridge put in a blender then cooked into soup taste to the finish. Medium body, syrupy, almost sticky feel throughout and medium, but sharp carbonation. It’s a bit of an overly boozy, syrupy mess, but it is pretty enjoyable overall. However, at $13/4pk it’s definitely a poor value. Maybe $7/6pk MIGHT warrant more than one purchase.

minutemat (3875) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2016
355ml bottle @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours murky brown, thin off-white head. Aroma is resinous orange. Taste is quite heavy on the crystal malt with some sticky honey, caramel & resinous pine. A bit of a muddle really.

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 (5499) - 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

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.
