12oz Bottle A - Pours clear amber with a small white head. Ok lacing. S - Resiny hops & sweet citrus. T - Resin, pine grapefruit, thought there would be a bigger malt backbone because of the color. M - Medium bodied, tingling carbonation, bitter finish. O - Nice solid IPA.

Pours a clear orange/amber with a nice white head. Aroma is all citrus and pine. Taste is fairly hoppy with some spice and maltiness also. Nice IPA.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a clear, rust orange appearance with a light brown head. Super spicy, piney hoppy, fairly resiny, caramel malty, sticky aroma. Sticky resiny hoppy, big piney/grapefruity hoppy flavor with just a mild bitterness and light sweetness. Tasty brew!

Great smell. Not as strong a flavor as Iíd prefer. Light on hops. Very tasty, still.

On tap at Free State. Pours a copper color with white head. Nice piney, grassy hops aromas. Citrus, piney, grassy, tropical fruit flavors. Nice IPA, although its not your classic winter seasonal.

I love the aroma of galaxy hops. Tropical candies aroma with some citrus that comes through in the flavor as well. The taste is a bit too sweet in my opinion for an IPA, but its reddish brown appearance and medium body are very appealing.

tulip. bronze color with a clean body and tall and thin head. Smell like lemon zest and rustic metal. The flavor reflects the smell but a little bit of roasted pine nuts.

It poured a copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was citrusy hoppy. The taste was a nice balance of citrus, fruity hoppiness and a caramel maltiness with a little bitterness. Very well done.

Clear amber beer with a short lived sticky off-white head. Fresh, bright orange hoppy nose with some pine and resin. Lots of fruity flavors in here with manderin orange, tropical fruits, apricot jam and red grapefruit. This beer is dominated by the hops with a long, pinching bitter finish. This is a nice big hop head beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours amber colored, clear with 2 inch white frothy head that lingered and left some web-y lacing. Aroma is all hops and very pleasant. I got a lot of grapefruit and other citrus with some floral notes as well. Taste is similarly a lot of citrus and hops flavors. It has a medium body, a little fuller than most single IPAís Iíve had.
