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

Leighton (11030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
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.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
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!

A solid IPA, with lovely complex citrus taste. Very drinkable. Carbonation is right there. Bottle from 20 West Side Wine and Spirits. Slightly orange colour, good retained head.

j12601 (6603) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2013
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.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2014
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.

DrSilverworm (6416) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2013
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.

BVery (6298) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber shared by Brandon - thanks! Nice pineapple and mango citrus nose and taste - more pronounced on taste than smell. Well balanced. Light and crisp.
