3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABv is 6.5%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of catty and fruity hops (grapefruit, tropical fruits). The flavour is distinctly hoppy with a solid bitterness throughout. Quite dry. Decent enough, but as with many other single hop beers I’ve tried, it becomes too one-dimensional. Galaxy is a good hop variety, but is probably even better when combined with other varieties, for more complexity. Very bitter aftertaste.

Henrik in Bergen. Nice bar with good service and the Oxford Companion on the shelf. Huge beer list. Lervig was too hoppy but I like hops, so it was fine. Draft.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This IPA’s hop profile spans from earth to citrus and from sand to resins all atop subtly biscuity cereals.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy orange.
-Mouthfeel is lean and bubbly, and drinkability is quite high.
-Hop fruitiness is reminiscent of oranges.
-Hop bitterness is quite enjoyable.
-Malts are barely supportive. This is an all-hop affair.

Clear orange of color with a foamy white head. An aroma of hops, citrus, grapefruit and exotic fruits. A flavor of citrus, grapefruit, grass, exotic fruit and a dry mouth.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, gooseberry and light peach. Good amount of malty notes. The flavor is highly bitter with grapefruit and hoppy notes. Just a tip of malty sweetness. Long duration of bitterness in the finish.

On tap @Crowbar. Pours golden amber with white head. In aroma malty with some pine, grassy notes, no great Galaxy aromas of citurs and exotic fruits. In taste malty base with solid bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad but not what I expected from Galaxy Single Hop.

Pours slightly cloudy with a slight beige head. Aroma has pine. The taste is very bitter from the hops. Again pine, but also liquerish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Irreale. Cloudy red amber, golden cream. Light spicy cumquat and vanilla nose. Medium sparkly body. Restrained slightly papery malt base, dry tropical fruit and pine hops, lemon drop and rust/salt finish. In the end a unusual but quite moreish ipa.
