drsandman (1055) - New York, USA - SEP 9, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy light yellow orange, thin white head. Aroma is mango, juicy fruit, papaya, grass, light spicy funk, bread, clean cracker malt, pine. Flavor is lightly skunky straight funk juice, crushable and lovely stuff. Great APA

On draft at NEBCO. The pour is a hazy light gold color with a light white head that leaves some solid soapy lace behind. The aroma is nice and citrusy. There is a great bright grassy hop happening that I really like. Light bitter and sweet fruit on the back end. The flavor is similar. Great citric grassiness up front with a lingering sweet hop. Itís crisp and clean. Iím a fan. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a great carbonation and a lingeringly bitter, very juicy fruit hop on the back. Nicely done.

Sample at NEBCo with koleminer20. Aroma is citrus, lemongrass, grass, pine, fantastic. Appearance is golden, slight haze, white head. Taste is citrus, crazy amount of pine, grass, tart, nice. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, pine needles aftertaste. Overall, solid solid stuff.

ClarkVV (5781) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Draught at the brewery, 6/4/16.
Gentle, but thoroughly hazy golden body has a strong peach-apricot hue and a big white head that is well-retained.
Huge nectarine-orange aromatics are juicy and thereís a touch of grapefruit pith to keep it balanced. Very minor honey with a touch of biscuit from the malts easily balance the hop character, and it feels incredibly fresh, lush and with a floral-spice character not often found with this hop. Tangerine juice-like finish with modest acidity and no alcohol or flaw.
Pillowy malts belie the low gravity and tickle the palate as the hop-infused liquid goes down. Moderate bitterness balances and thereís a wonderfully gentle peach-nectarine character with stronger tangerine/orange juice components. One of the "softest" textures Iíve seen in a beer, which isnít always easy for such a low gravity beer. No resin and perfectly balanced and juicy. Like a NE IPA-lite. Very memorable.

pete4999 (1444) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2015
On tap. Golden/light brown pour, hazy. Nice beer, solid and drinkable pale ale. I feel like I should get more of the galaxy vibe from it, but I really donít so much. Still, that said, itís a good beer as always from them. I enjoyed the Nelson version better though.

Growler. Opaque pale yellow pour with a white head. Nice fruity hop aroma. Bitter hop notes with a fruity notes. Good body and mouthfeel.

hopscotch (10600) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Growler... Cloudy dirty-orange pour with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. The nose offers spicy, citrusy and tropical galaxy hops flanked by a light note of funky armpit musk from ridiculously heavy dry-hopping. Even cascade hops smell more like body odor than grapefruit and pine when dry-hopped too heavily. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor and finish are both bitter and dry. Enjoyable overall. Fresh growler shipped my way by BriceNice!

TXBadger (2530) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a nice darker golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, and a little bit of light fruit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little hint of caramel malt backbone.

Prufrockstar (1978) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Thanks to Ryan for sharing a recently-acquired growler of this. Pours gold, hazy, with no head. Orange, pine, "juicy." Cracker, grass. Orange creamcicle. Medium body. Nice pale.

bellco33 (699) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 7, 2014
On tap in a pint glass: Pours golden with a nice white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, flowers, grapefruit, other citrus, resin, and grapes. Taste is mainly tropical fruit and grapefruit. but also a hint of grape which I notice in a lot of galaxy-hopped beers. Light to medium body, smooth mouthfeel, tons of flavor for something this low ABV. Great beer.
