COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA shoots a raygun blast of Galaxy and Zythos hops into your mouth and leaves a crisp, dry finish.

Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, foamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is a mélange of grapefruit, passionfruit, sugar cookie and tea biscuit. Medium-bodied and creamy with dancing carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced, providing medium-bitter notes of citrus rinds and grapefruit pith. Crisp, juicy, bittersweet finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

22 ounce bomber poured an orangish amber color with aromas of hops, light earth, pine and some citrus. Flavors were citrusy biscuits with some pine added, light bitterness, but a solid IPA overall would love to drink this over and over again.

Ratman197 (9704) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bomber poured a clear amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, dank bud, earthiness, pine resin and grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, grapefruit, dank bud and pine resin with a smooth dry bitter lingering pine resin finish.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
In short: A basic pale American IPA with an appreciable dryness. Decent.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed (probably fresh) immediately after receiving it from cetherid, thanks a lot Chris .
The look: Almost clear orangy golden body topped by a persistent off-white head.
In long: Nose is only moderately hoppy with basic fruity (citrusy and others) and light piney notes, a beer that uses new breed of hops to create a common American IPA aroma. In mouth the beer has a body that is a bit on the light side and medium carbonation. Discreet semi-toasted cereals, low sweetness sensation, not-so-assertive hopping leading to a medium and dry bitterness that is mostly fruity. The rather dry finish makes it a bomber you can drink in a matter of minutes, I know I did. Not very tasty, far from aromatic by today’s standard, but highly drinkable. I give this one a passing grade even though there was nothing special here. A Galaxy Hero sounds like an awesome powerful hero, plus we need to replace Superman anyway because in 2013 the poor dude just can’t find a phone booth to change anymore.

Hazy orange-peach colored body, medium sized off-white head. Tangerine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, more pale malts creep into the flavor profile. Medium bodied, appropriately carbonationed, semi-sweet, moderately bitter finish.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Golden-orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of tropical fruit with some pineapple, mango and biscuit. The flavor is similar and also very nice. I get a lot of tropical fruit notes with a low level of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Outstanding.

Cloudy golden pour with a huge white head. Juicy tropical fruit aroma. Fresh. Medium mouth. Smooth. Taste is fruity. Pineapple and tropical fruit. Slight dankness to this, but is tasty if you like that in your IPA’s.

Pour is hazy orange with an ivory head. Nose is of piney hop and tropical fruit like pineapple and mango. Taste has good balance with nice hop and malt character. Tasting notes are straw, pineapple, pine and floral. Amour heel is light-medium with a oily note. Overall pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bomber. Aroma is citrus, light pine, and a touch of caramel. Flavor is citrus, pine, and caramel. Very nice Ipa hoppy but has a nice sweet caramel after taste. Great beer!!
