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.

Pours deep gold with white head. Aroma is all hops, just as it should be. Predominantly mango and grapefruit. Taste is bitter but with fruity. Medium body with a clean finish.

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 couldnít get any better than Citra Ninja or Ninja v Unicorn and then Galaxy comes along and takes the lead...Cheers! Merry Fitzmas!~

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 Iím splitting hairs, both are delicious. Well done guys! Serving type: bottle

fuertecorn (15) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2012
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.

22oz. Iím a big fan of PW Ipas but this one takes the cake for me so far. Amazing aroma, incredibly citrus flavor, sweet tropical fruit balanced by a perfect palate. Loved it.

Huhuhuhuhuhuh, man this beer was ridonkulous. Soft pale blonde pour with one finger of white head. The nose is just nuts, incredibly strong/intense. You can smell it from several feet away. Lots of fresh fruit/citrus, tropical fruit, very juicy. Intensely hoppy and grassy with tons of raw tropical fruit in the flavor. Wonderful mouthfeel palate/soft light-medium body with a moderate and zesty bitterness. Fuh-hantastic beer.
