Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark orange with a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, citrus and pine resin. Taste is medium bitter. Citrus and grapefruit with pine. A little caramel and lemon-wheat in there too. Light bodied with a slick and somewhat thin texture. Soft carbonation but a super long finish. Awesome overall. Definitely another pipeworks winner.

AWISLguy (1178) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bomber from the Art of Beer. Batch 255/56/57/62, so less than a month old. Pours an unclear tannish orange with a white head leaving nice consistent lacing down through the glass. Aroma has pine, fresh fruit, citrus and caramel. Taste is of spicy pine, orange juice, sweet stone fruits, some resin and a bit of a malty toffee base. some alcohol. Medium bodied, and quite dry. Finishes slightly to the bitter side of bittersweet; more bitter down through the glass. Enjoyed the cascade one better as the galaxy started nicely fruitier, but was more piney and more bitter, and ultimately not as good.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2013 Bottle shared by Jack at beer study. Pours a deep hazy orange with a sticky white head. Nose is strong citrus, light tropical, some cotton candy sweetness. Flavor is similar. Nicely done and pretty well balanced, considering.

hopscotch (8861) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle... Murky, dark peach ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is a swirl of tropical fruits and melons – like a creamy guanabana, guava, papaya, and pineapple milk shake. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and jazzy carbonation. The flavor is an assortment of fruity, malty, sweet nectars blended with rindy, pithy, bitter hops. Slightly astringent, bittersweet, super-fruity finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

Bomber. Bottled on Wed. Batch # 255 56 57 62. Smells like citrus. I get pineapple. I get that in the flavor too with grapefruit and lemon. Medium body. Another great from a great brewery.

brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Pours a dark, hazy orange color with a finger lenth of a white head that goes away slowly and leaves a blanket of lacing. Smells of dank, juicy passionfruit, grapefruit, tangerine, mango, lemon, grass, and some carmel. Taste starts with lots of dank tangerine, mango, and grapefruit. Has a candied sweetness. The middle brings more of the perviously mentioned fruits, as well as passionfruit and a slight carmel sweetness from the malt. The finish is amazingly flavorful. More tropical fruits and passion fruit, accompanied by grapefruit rind, tangerine, blood orange, little grass, and a piney bitterness. The candied and carmel sweetness are there to just slightly balance the hop qualities. High medium body with a creamy and oily texture. Slight heat as it goes down, but that is expected for a 9.5% beer. No alcohol to taste or smell. This may be Pipeworks best double ipa offering. An outstandingly flavorful and drinkable double ipa that shows off the galaxy hop remarkably. Seek this out.

madvike (2666) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle - Pours hazy golden with thin bubbly head. Nose is dank and stinky mango hoppiness, a little garlic, cat pee, and a little pine. Taste is real astringent, with pine, citrus peel, and light pale malt. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated.
