3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Andy’s courtesy of Jen. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Spicy hops on the nose, a faint hint of cattyness. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, chewy malt with some hops. Sweet into the finish with a bit of toastiness and a touch of bitterness. Not too bad.

Bottle at Andy’s. Pours a lightly hazy orange body with thin white lacing. Aroma is light galaxy and citric hops. Mouthfeel is a bit bitter and dry with notes of orange, lemon, very dry funk and light graininess.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Didn’t realize that this also had Zythos while I was rating it, thought it was a single hop. Shared at Listermann’s during their Julia release. Mostly clear amber color. Good thin off-white head, nice thick and foamy. Solid lace. Smooth, creamy carbonation. Medium to bigger body. Lightly dry finish. Grapefruit, tropical fruit, light pine, citrus peel flavors. Light spiciness. Moderate bitter, light zesty sweet, light spicy hop. Solid galaxy showcase, though I’d have preferred it to be a little less sweet, and have more of a galaxy hop punch. I much prefer the Galaxy DIPAs that I’ve tried recently.

Bottle shared by a a few. Pours a translucent copper with a white head of foam. Aroma has big citrus fruity mango and pineapple. Taste is very sweet and fruity with the bitterness coming through to wrap things up nicely in the finish. Pretty good stuff.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Binny’s Des Plaines. Pours dark golden with white head. Aromas of juicy citrus, pineapple, mango, and resiny hops. Flavors of bright tropical fruit with pineapple and orange with nice hop bitterness and enough malt backbone to keep it honest. Great fresh IPA. Gotta love galaxy hops.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a growler at Dark Lord Day. Big, ripe fruit aroma. Dark orange and bubbly appearance. Crisp, sweet, citrusy flavor, like oranges and pineapple, pairs up nicely with the pungent aroma. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, balanced. This is a delicious single ipa that goes a knock up job of showcasing the galaxy hop flavor.

Had it out of a bomber, poured a solid orange hue with a thin head and uneven lacing with a solid hop aroma with hints of grapefruit. It has a bold IPA taste with an underlying citrus flavor.
