3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy gold from bottle to snifter with a finger of soapy white head with nice lacing. Aroma of apricots, nectarines and pineapple with a hint of floral. Citrus flavor with grapefruit predominate. Nice smooth bitterness that is a little grassy and cut by a slight sweetness. Moderate mouthfeel that finishes dry with mild bitterness. Nice balanced IPA that I could drink again.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a finger-thick off-white head that lasts leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is of fresh citrus hops. Medium body, taste is a nice balance of citrus hops and malt. Grapefruit and pineapple work well here. Finish is slightly dry with the citrus lasting well after the swallow. Very good!

Smells and tastes like tropical fruit juice. Big pineapple, mango and papaya. Very fresh and delicious. I like that breweries are using different varieties of hops to mix it up a bit. This one is definitely a win and my first beer from these guys. Absolutely delicious. Cheers.

One of the better ones that I’ve had from this brewer. Seems like a West-Coast style. Nice strong citrusy hops with just enough malt to balance out. Has a semi-cloudy light orange appearance. I wouldn’t mind sampling this one again if I could.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Hazy gold color. Frothy white head with nice clinging lace. Faint fruity malt nose. Bittersweetet hops upfront. Notes of mango and sweet citrus. Nice balance between malt and hops yield a flavorful IPA. Some bready notes in finish. Overall a very good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of bready sweet malts and earthy dank hops. Taste follows, bittersweet finish. This is not an ideal batch of galaxy, but not a bad IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy golden. Grapefruit aroma with hints of earth. Taste is bitter grapefruit peel, cat pee (I don't know what cat pee tastes like but the taste reminds me of the smell for some odd reason), soap, and light floral notes.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of gregwilsonstl, pours with a crystal clear pure gold body that supports a thin white head. The aroma offers up sweet cantaloupe and clementine and mango to go along with a spicy garlic like hoppiness in the background. The taste delivers a hoppy bitter bite with grapefruit, spicy onion and pineapple. To midway mild juicy citrus and tropical fruit notes are noticed and lightly sweetened by the subtle soft sweet malt base. Solid IPA with up front fruity hop bitterness.

Bottle. (thanks Wolff)
A bit hazy golden/yellow with a large head. Aroma and taste of citrus, hops, some pineapple and hay. Medium body and with a bitter finish. A descent one.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a bright orange color with a large white head. A big citrus nose, tropical, some biscuit. Rich orange tea, soft citrus, fluffy, biscuit sweet malts. Galaxy hops showcased so well here. Kinda funky. Very good.

Great show case of Galaxy hops. Great passion fruit and pineapple hop derived fruitiness. Yum! Some galaxy hopped IPAs have a slight grassy background taste but Schlafly TIPA pulled off the use of Australian hops very tastefully. So sad it is not a ear round offering.
