3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Hamilton during Reunion 2014 late at night when everybody was pretty weary. From scattered notes...This is a good IPA, with lots of juicy citrus and piney elements, some tangerine. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Nicely hoppy finish with enough balancing sweetness, more juicy and citrusy hops, mellow bitterness. Solid.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Neons. Pours a clear gold with a small and resilient white head that laces the glass. Aroma of bready malts, tropical fruits, pine, grass - kind of funky and dank. Flavor of tropical fruits, sweet lemon, sweet dough, grass, straw, and sugar. Medium-bodied, with soft carbonation and a sweet, fruity, malty mouthfeel. Very good IPA.

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.
