3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottled almost 4 months ago, purchased at Hy-Vee Muscatine and poured into a pint glass at home. Orange and cloudy appearance with a rocky, lasting white head, thick lacing. Fresh, pleasant aroma of citrus zest, tropical fruits, floral notes and light herbs. Flavor is medium plus bitterness, resinous, fruity hops, mildly sweet, toasty malts and light spice. Medium body, crisp and kind of dry with a lingering resinous finish. Pretty smooth and refreshing. Enjoyed side by side with their American IPA (3.6)

3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color is perhaps the lightest I’ve ever seen in an IPA. If not for the cloudiness and the head, you might think like is a macro lager! The aroma is kind of funky. Kinda off putting, actually. However, that funkiness isn’t in the flavor. There is a fruitiness to it, but not quite like the citrus flavors from most hops. Mellow for an IPA, but I like it. Sneaky ABV at 7.2%
Gotta love the uniqueness. Bonus points just for that!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle - Pours golden with a small, lasting head and good lacing. It has a good citrus aroma. This is a tasty brew with crisp bitterness, a medium body, citrus character, and a pleasant, bitter finish. Very well done.

The Galaxy hops from Tasmania make this beer reminiscent of pink grapefruit. Nice crisp acidity up front with a nice clean finish. Perfect beer to drink with lighter foods even with its higher alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2015 On draft. Huge, huge pineapple juice aroma. Thin yellow color. Flavors of sweet pineapple throughout. Nothing subtle about anything here. Just pineapple and more pineapple. Update: 9/15: Still pineapple, just milder with a bit more biscuit.

Really wanted to like this one. As an avid IPA drinker, I was told at a local store to try this. The clerk told me to try Tasmanian IPA instead of one of my favorites that was out of stock (Three Floyd's Zombie Dust).
Excited to try this, it was actually a huge disappointment for me. I was told the flavor was very similar to Zombie Dust. I've had Zombie Dust plenty of times being that I am from Indiana and this does not taste anywhere near as good as Zombie Dust (not does it resemble Zombie Dust that much...it barely does). The flavor wasn't even that similar. Glad other people enjoyed this beer but for me, it just wasn't an IPA that I liked at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle. Pours opaque orange gold with a bubbly frothy white head. Tastes like sweet orange, lavender, light dry spice and resin. Very nice flavor. Slightly grassy, waxy, and boozy. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet, creamy orange cookie.
