alexsdad06 (5263) - Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a big citrus and somewhat tropical fruit hop profile, caramel malt, earthy notes and a touch of spice. The flavor has the same citrus and tropical fruit notes with earthy character, mild spices, caramel malt and a dry grassy note. A touch of alcohol comes through, but this is pretty solid.

pantanap (3350) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Growler thanks to josh... Pours with a small hiss and yields a coppery transparent coppery brown hue and topped with a very thin wispy white head... Aroma was initially semi-dank and socky but then recedes and evolves as a more galaxy hopped focus. Way cleaner than what was originally tasted. A bit of caramel malt to coincide with the aforementioned but a bit sweet overall... Flavors are bit more malt focused with caramel and crystal with more of a hoppiness coming into play. Somewhat of a bitter finish but not overwhelmingly so. Nice but pales to Pipeworks a fair bit overall. Hoppy but fairly sweet which doesn’t allow the hop to shine as much as I would have expected to. Big, somewhat boozy, but still goodl

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Strings of lacing o the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and sweet malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter citrusy hops character and notes of bready malt and spice. The finish is fruity with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Another solid single hop showcase beer.

Tmoney99 (10414) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Draft sample. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy citrus hop and tropical fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. I drank this with a freind - both are First Class.

Growler to snifter (thanks Jay). Looks good; a fairly transparent copperish-orange with white lacing. Smells good too; pungent Galaxy hops. Tastes like it smells with a nice West Coast mouthfeel. Good stuff!
