12 oz. bottle from a trade with Fletche00. Pours a hazy caramel color with a big, pillowy, cream colored head, and good lacing. The first thing on the nose is massive grapefruit, followed by some butterscotch, pine sap, and light resin. The flavor is sweet and juicy up front, with an aggressive hop bitterness in the finish. The bitterness lingers in the aftertaste, tapering off to a light sourness. Medium to heavy body, sticky, and chewy. Overall, this is a big, thick beer, especially given the ABV. The hop aroma is brilliant, but the bitterness is a little off-putting. Still, this is an very good pale ale.

Amber with white head. Thin, creamy, and mild lacing. Citrus, apricot, caramel, and mild floral aroma. Medium bodied, Caramelly sweet, fruity, with finishing lemon notes. Decent balance, mild dry zing, and medium bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep golden color out of the bottle with a loose, foamy off white head. Big fruity hop nose. Chewy hop flavors with lots of tropical fruit and candied grapefruit rind, over a coarse home made breadiness. Long hop bitterness in the finish. This is a hop dominated beer for sure.

Draft. Pours golden straw with copious white creamy head that leaves substantial lacing. Aroma is sweet tropical fruit. Taste matches the aroma with a clean bitter finish. Pretty good pale ale. Would be great on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour this one gingerly, or you will have some cleanup to do - head retention is very nice though. I love the Aussie hops - tropical fruits and citrus on all sides. Pretty aggressively hopped for an APA, but well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy orange with big white head. This one was a bit of a gusher. Nice fruity hop aroma. Flavor is a bit disappointing, opens pretty watery/lagery with some grassy hops in the finish. Not a bad beer, but I certainly wouldn’t buy it.

Fresh bottle. Pours light golden yellow with frothy white head. Aroma is passion fruit, grapefruit, some floral notes. Lots of sweetness on the tongue but well balanced with the Galaxy hops and malt. Big flavors here. These "single-hop" beers are a great way to learn your likes and dislikes in the hop world. Sign me up for more of this one!

12oz. Pours medium golden with a nice sticky white head. Tropical fruit, grass, and caramel show. Nice tangarine, melon, and mango from the hops. Nice carbonation and body. Super drinkable and well executed.

12oz bottle via trade with bmoosey, thanks Bruce. Poured a good looking solid orange amber with a large frothy off white head that lasts and lasts. Aroma is odd, some baby aspirin, fruity, old grains, must. Body is a watery mouthfeel with light tight tingly carbonation and not much of an aftertaste. Flavor is like the aroma but watered down. Didn’t care for this one.

Definite citrus and mild bitterness on the palate. A slight sweetness from the malts, which accentuate the rich fruit flavors. Not juicy, just kind of middle-of-the-road. With more hop, it would get more complex and interesting.

cloudy amber color; floral hop aroma; a hoppy beer with a good deal of tropical fruit notes on a medium bodied malt base; dry, bitter finish
