Pours a rich orange golden color with a finger of sticky foam.. Aromas are dank herbal tropical hop juice. Nice apricot, mango and citrus take the lead with a dank earthy caramel malt backbone to hold everything in place and deliver this big hop juice flavor. Nice lingering fruit.... YUM!

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2016 Growler. Merci Charles. Couleur jaune éclatant, presque orange, assez voilée, mousse blanche, elle est belle et invitante. Nez explosif de fruits jaunes, pêches, mangues, ananas. En bouche, belle texture, céréales fraîches, houblons qui apportent des notes de fruits à la tonne. 8% et pintable comme s’il y avait pas de lendemain. Wow.

750 ml growler (3 weeks old) shared with friends at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, from trade with Frank. Hazy yellow golden color with white to off white head. Heavy hoppy and light malty aroma, citrusy fruity, orange, tropical fruits, grassy, pine. Sweet and bitter fruity and grassy taste. Medium to full silky oily body with soft carbonation.

På fat Onemile Ale house. YEEES en världsöl !!! Ljust grumlig höliknande Dipa. Doft fräscht av Apelsin Citron Grape. Smak? Tydlig Salmiak inslag fin sådan . Sen kommer lite smaker som du kan läsa om tidigare i denna text. Medelfyllig krämig lagom kolsyrad i klassisk världs Dipa stil. Dock INTE i yttersta toppklass som Other half.

Tap at Farmhouse Tap & Grill, Burlington. Colour is very cloudy yellow with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Fruits, citrus, some grape, hops and malts. Needs everything more.

RickTheRick (882) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2016
Une mousse moyenne mais tenace se forme sur un liquide doré/orangé très embrouillé. Des ananas et d’autres fruits tropicaux explosent intensément au nez. Quelques notes végétales ("pellets") ne sont pas assez importantes pour gâcher le party olfactif. En bouche, c’est rond et légèrement sucré, mais c’est surtout immensément fruité. Malgré son taux d’alcool élevé, la bière se laisse boire dangereusement bien.

Bulk_Carrier (3430) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 7, 2016
On tap at The Blue Stone. This was poured into a tall tulip. The appearance was a pure orange juice to rind color. One finger white foamy head that dissipated pretty quickly. Light lacing here and there. The smell had a stunning burst of bittersweet orange juice with bitter grapefruit pulp and rind backing it all up. Light sweet mango strolls in underneath. The taste copied the aroma nicely. Bittersweet orange juice aftertaste slides into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sipping to sessionable quality about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing the bitterness from the hops to pack an appropriate punch. Overall, beautifully and wonderfully done. A masterpiece of a DIPA that I know I would have again.

En fût. Liquide trouble est orangé et me paraît très dense. Le houblon est très puissant en bouche sans jamais surpasser les malts dont la forte teneur en arômes céréaliers apportent volume et profondeur. Le Galaxy est plus floral et gazonneux que fruité dans cette bière de souche fermière. Très belle densité en bouche. Peut-être un rien trop de corps pour une IIPA à mon goût. Les saveurs sont fidèles aux arômes avec un fruit supplémentaire qui n’existait pas il y a une minute à peine. Finale amère bien soutenue par les malts. Ce verre demeure une jolie compensation pour toutes ces magnifiques bières que j’ai bues hier soir au EBF sans pouvoir les goûter à cause de ce foutu rhume...

Hazy glowing yellow with an eggshell head. Big whaf of bubblegum, overripe apricot, mango, peach, citrus, pine and spruce, Nicely balanced resin with mango, very much like the Tree Houses Green in hope profile with that big bubblegum, filled with juicy fruits and overripe apricot. Big creamy mouthfeel. The best HF hoppy beer, and maybe the best hoppy beer overall.

On tap at brewery. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, and pine. Flavor is big juicy tropical fruits of mango and pineapple followed with citrus. Finishes grapefruit and dank pine resin. Galaxy is one of my favorite hops and this did not disappoint.

Growler. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Tangy citrus hops dominate the beer. Straight forward with minimalistic malt presence. Clean and refreshing. God body and mouthfeel.
