4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance is light golden, cloudy, and has a medium white cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is intense citrus and grass, more so orange, apricot, and lemongrass. Taste is sweet malt and citrus that gives way to an intense hop bite and grapefruit like tartness. Mouthfeel is light, well carbonated, and very dry. Finishes with a lingering bitterness and distinct citrus orange/grapefruit taste and acidic tartness

Clear appealing pour with a substantial head. The flavor is full of Galaxy flavor, with tropical fruits and bitterness. There also some malty sugar in there.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks, Mark! Slightly hazy, yet radiant sunshine yellow body with a foamy white head that turns to a soapy skin in just a few moments. Aroma is an incredibly unique blend of fruits that Iíve never gotten before... Lots of pineapple, melon, persimmon, mango, passion fruit, perhaps a touch of bubblegumm-y sweetness. Very different, but a lovely fruit essence. A hint of dankness in the finish. Taste has a mellow, rolling bitterness but a bit of gummy malt sweetness to really make the hop flavors seem juicy. Honeydew, melon, pineapple, mango... Tropical, mostly, with a stronger perfume oil & herbal pepper presence, too. Smooth, slick, slightly dry finish. Gotta say, this stuff was very tasty & super unique.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Pompilioís / Newport KY --- Clear straw color with 1/2" white head that never gives up, bands of lace. Taste begins with caramel malt, but it is overwhelmed in the palate by assertive citrus hops. In the end, the hops canít hold the field and yield to the return of the malt, which lingers nicely in a long finish. One of the best from Schlafly.

Pours a nice amber color with white head. Citrus, pine, floral, and resin notes on the nose; follow onto the palate. Finishes with a fairly sweet note.

Nice IPA with tons of orange. All around this reminds me of lightly bitter and sweet malted orange juice. Tasty and drinkable with some light tropical fruit notes as well.

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 Iíve 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 isnít 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!
