4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
64 oz growler of the second batch. I believe this was tapped on 9/21/12. Pour into a NEBCO pint glass.
A - Like most hoppy beers from NEBCO, this is unfiltered. Hazy orange body that resembles juice. One finger high white head forms with large bubbling. Settles into a thin white cap with loads of sticky lacing and retention.
S - Orange juice hops, pine, light grass, and some crackery malts. The finish is very faint, but its certainly of dank weed. Smell is excellent.
T - Orange and grapefruit juice, a touch of pine and grass, light and crackery malts then BAM...a huge wall of bitterness. Its just so pleasantly bitter with clean and fresh notes of citrus. There is a little danky and spicy bite to round things out as well.
M - Light to medium bodied with great carbonation. Very crisp with a lasting bitterness.
O - Another amazing hoppy hit from NEBCO. This beer drinks like an IPA, but has the alcohol of one of those new-fangled session beers. This is extraordinary stuff!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pulled straight out of the bright tank for a few of us at the brewery (how awesome is that!) Orange pour with just a little bit of head. Aroma is dank dank dank. Spicy resinous hope notes. This is a Galaxy showcase and it doesn’t disappoint. Earthy resinous spicy hop bomb. Balanced though and not overly bitter. Super tasty beer, but I was burping up Galaxy hops for the next hour.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the brewery. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of citrus, melon, honeydew, some light ginger hints. Tastes of dry malt, some floral hints, grassy, earthy with a touch of bitter citrus on the finish. Enjoyable.
