Cant believe the ratings on this one. Sampled on tap at Mile, pours clearish golden with small head and lace. Notes are grape perfume, and grape lollipop but no dank galaxy. Medium bodied.

Bottle on Saturday afternoon this was hiding in back of fridge forgot I had. Yellow orange beer with lemon, orange peel, and scallion on the nose. Tastes of lemongrass, orange peel, pears, light pine, scallion, some melted sugar. Sweet and light hides alcohol very easy drinking.

Opaque gold appearance with a medium sized white head and decent lacing. Restrained aroma of citrus and resin. Flavors of coarse grains bounce off the different nuances of the Galaxy hops. Moderately bitter, spicy aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a dry, long lasting finish.

Received in trade from gregwilsonstl, thanks for the opportunity!
slightly hazy light golden color. Dripping with tropical fruity piney hop goodness and just enough bready malt to bring it all together. Very nice IPA!

Balanced, juicy floral citrus flavors pick up a hint of ginger on the back of the palate, lingering with intense floral and pine hops that linger long.

Tap pour at Upstairs of cloudy orange with very short foam. On the whole, disappointing. Nose has a hint of citrus/grapefruit. Taste is rough mixture of pine and grapefruit with very unpleasant bitter aftertaste. I prefer IPAs but cannot recommend this.

12 oz bottle into a tulip. Beautiful golden orange color with nice lacing. Nose is earthy and pine, palate is bright grapefruit. Bitter without overwhelming. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Let me first disclose that I do have beef with St. Louis, and Iím not talking about a steak. It is a garbage city. You donít need to bother flushing a toilet there because it makes no difference. But Iím not going to let that fact - ok, maybe just a very valid opinion - sway my ticking notes. This beer pours a hazy orange color with a small white head. The aroma is extremely citric. I get blood orange and grapefruit mainly. The flavor is nice and dry, almost tart, with biting citrus and heavy hop bitterness on the finish. The feel is great, ripping the cover off your teeth. Leaves you feeling almost violated. This beer is quite nice, especially considering the it came out of the hellhole that is Shit - or is it Saint - Louis.

Silky smooth profile. Was very surprised at the hop profile in this one. It was there but in a soft lingering kind of way. Doesnít hit you hard upfront but is smooth and clean with tropical clean flavors and hop linger.

12 oz. bottle poured to my sampler glass at the Lakeshore Beverage Trade Show in Chicago, showing a fairly clear, golden hue, with frothy, soft white head foam, and clingy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was dank, earthy, grass & greenery, with light tropical & citrusy scent. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste include a nice, even bitterness that was citrusy & resinous. An appreciated departure from common IPA expression, especially in the aroma.
