3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

Golden color, white head. Big bold hoppy beer with a nice wheat/malt backbone. Some light dough notes are present, but the citrusy and grassy hops steal the show. Nice brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
651mL at RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours a clear lighter orange. Rocky, off-white foam. Webby lacing. Nose is heavy butterscotch, melons, vanilla, caramel, dank hops, lots of dessert character. Taste is similar with buttercream, caramel, butterscotch, sugary tropical melons. Palate is dense, sticky, oily. Definitely on the sweeter, dessert side of DIPA but no typical DIPA flaws like nutty astringency, tea leaf tannins, old candies, cheesecloth.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Galaxy isn’t my fav hop variety but they got all they could out of it in this one, I havent had a galaxy ipa with as intense of a flavor. Huge aroma, just huge. Flavor has a high slighly herbal bitterness and layers of citrus rind and tropical hop goodness. Note to Pipeworks: had another bottle of this and citra ninja in the past 2 days and there is a butterscotch element to both. Not sure why.

2014-08-15. Hazy dark yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma of citrusy hops, lemony notes. Flavour is nice, similar hoppy lemon citrus. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Quite nice, crisp bright hop character. Bottle at Campground Brewdown

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from StFun (thanks Josh), pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of orangey hops, wheat, some resin and syrupy caramel malts. Flavour brings out pungent resinous hops, tropical fruits, oranges, and slightly syrupy caramel malts. Quite an astringency from the hops, yet the caramel malt is very prominent as well. Good stuff, but too heavy on the malts for me and the malt is a bit too syrupy for me. Overrated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber thanks to Lemonhead. Pours a clear yellow color with a large white head. A massive nose of fruit, citrus some grass. Excellent flavor of rich citrus, dry, long lingering bitterness, huge resin at times. Very clean and well done. Soft palate. Very mellow but flavorful. Excellent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber bottle and served in my 1st Pipeworks snifter: This is dank, hell it is more dank than Blood of the Unicorn but that had some attempt to soften the crushing blows. I am simply not a fan of this hop in such quantities or the other new uber aggressive high alpha hops that simply dominate beers. Not really much more I need to say.
