4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Birreria Paradiso Georgetown. Hazy orange-tan with a creamy off-white head. Awesome unique funky island tropical insanity aroma. Perhaps the most all out Starburst tropical IPA I’ve ever had. Delightful golden malt body, never too thick doing anything other than creating a steady backbone for the intense hops to shine. Sort of blows a great beer like Zombie Dust out of the water. True hop dream. Lemon-lime, peach, interesting pungent twang, and no sugary overtones. Phenomenal! Light noble peppery notes meets tropical bliss.

Great beer, super hoppy beast! One of the best new IPAs I’ve had in a while. Big piney aroma, sticky, lots of citrus. It bites up front and finishes quick and clean. Very good stuff.

Huge thanks to xscottypx! Medium golden pour with a frothy white head that sticks around forever and laces. Big tropical hop fruitiness with pineapple, apricots, peach and oranges with some underlying honey sweetness. Sweet slightly creamy honey and bread malts on the front quickly turning into huge tropical fruity hops and a long bitter finish. Fantastic balance and flavor profile. Damn good beer.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy golden color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of earthy and herbal hops with mild citrus and tropical notes.The taste is bitter hops... mango, tropical, candied citrus, pine. Pale malt backbone. Medium bodied with a lingering bitterness. Quite nice. Thanks for the recommendation Jay.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Fluffy white head, bright light yellow gold that’s slightly hazy. Nice tropical fruit hoppiness, sweet guava, small scallion in the aroma. Scallion shows up a bit too much in the taste, but very fruity and tropical as well. Medium to lighter body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer is light golden to orange in color with about a quarter inch of white head. The aroma is the best aspect of the beer. Alluring fresh hops and citrus. Tropical fruit flavors. Lightly sweet. Hop forward with enough of a malt bill to give the beer some body, but still showcase the hop character. Delicious beer. At $10 per sixer, this is a must try for any hophead.

bottled 11/29/12 poured into a founders snifter/tulip. this beer starts out with this wild hop aroma that is very addicting. the fact that this is basically a smash beer helps to fully get everything out of the galaxy hops. the galaxy is to me what i can imagine is citras wild south pacific cousin. similar profile with a more aggressive wild hop aromas, theres lots of citrus and hits of grapefruit with a slight grassiness that doesnt take anything away from it. the appearance is a of a very clear light gold from the use of just 2-row with a nice frothy head. the taste is undeniable with it coping the aroma the whole way even down to the slight grassiness. the palate is spot on with a light enough body and excellent carbonation. overall this is a steal, if it was a couple bucks cheaper and year round it would score top honors across the board.
