Pours a light golden color. Amazing aroma from the galaxy hops. Loads of melon, citrus, passion fruit, mango and other fruity notes. Incredibly bright, fruity (melon and tropical fruit) for the hops and a nice surprisingly light body that still stands up. Dangerously drinkable for the abv.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2012
22oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Batch #67. Pours a lightly hazed, pale golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is big pineapples, tropical fruits, and melons with a dank pine resin and a slight candied sweetness. Lightly sweetened pale malt backing with a bit of a clean wheat. Flavor is similar. Lots of piney and resiny, somewhat dank hops with plenty of pineapples, grapefruits, tropical fruits, and melons. A lightly sweetened pale malt backing allows the hops to shine with just a touch of wheat in the end. Finishes dry, bitter, fruity, and resiny before leaving a lengthy aftertaste with just a slight warmth. Medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, another solid DIPA from these guys. Very fresh, fruity, clean, bitter, and somewhat dank from the Galaxy hops. Drinks way too easy for the size. Good one.

22 oz. bottle served in a Pipeworks tulip. Batch # 65. A: Pours a clear amber color with a thick white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick ring that leaves some soapy looking lace down the glass. S: Huge waves of tropical and citrus fruits. Pineapple, mango and some cantaloupe. Tangerine, clementine and some honey notes. Caramel malt sweetness as well. T: Pineapple and mango notes initially with a ton of underlying piney bitterness. Some light lemon peal, orange and some honey notes to it. Sweet bread malt body with a touch of caramel to it. A touch of booze on the back end. M: Medium to light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Slightly boozy and sweet, but very drinkable for 9.5%. O: I still liked the initial flavor profile of Citra Ninja more, but this is an extremely close second for me. This is a little more sweet than CN, but the hops shine a little more. Overall I’m splitting hairs, both are delicious. Well done guys! Serving type: bottle

Poured from a bomber into a Half acre tulip Yellowish orange body, lightly hazed with a white foam head that leaves slight lacing in the glass. Retention is good. Explosion of tropical Galaxy hops in the aroma, mango, orange, passionfruit, a light fruity sweetness plus a hint of the wheat. . Juicy mango and orange peel flavors at first, with a resiny bitter orange zest that lingers into the finish. Caramel hints in the aftertaste. Creamy feel, almost perfect. Not to sweet or boozy .... you would have thought it couldn’t get any better than Citra Ninja or Ninja v Unicorn and then Galaxy comes along and takes the lead...Cheers! Merry Fitzmas!~

Bomber from Cardinal-Niles. Pours lightly hazed golden orange with a while head. Aroma is amazing with fresh dank hops, pineapple, and orange citrus. Flavor of oh so fresh orangish citrus hops, tons of tropical fruit, and just enough malt to keep it honest. Nice punch of hop bitterness. Perfect balance of hops and lighter malts. Not overly bitter and no overload of sweet malts. Best IIPA i had in a long time.

Another great Imperial IPA by Pipeworks. Every bit as good as Citra Ninja and Ninja vs. Unicorn. Beautiful looking--hazy yellow. First impression of aroma was kiwi and tangerine. Mango, too. Tropical fruits throughout. Nice mouthfeel. Some stickiness. Not as sweet as Something Hoppy. Mild maltiness, but present. Pine character in the bitterness--and it is quite bitter. Delicious beer.
