4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottled Dec 13 2012. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours semi-hazy yellow/gold with a one finger white head that leaves lots of spots of lacing and maintains a very good cap.
Aroma is nice lemon citrus, pineapple, somewhat grassy and floral, biscuit, doughy malt. Very good strength.
Flavor is lemon citrus, pineapple, grassy, floral hops, grapefruit rind, tropical fruit, malt is light and unobtrusive, cracker, bread, biscuit. Minimal sweetness, very good bitterness, some alcohol on the finish. Very dry.
Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied, good carbonation.
Wow, this is some awesome stuff! Very hoppy, unbalanced, just the way I like it. Love pineapple in my IPAs and this delivers. Reminds me a bit of a baby Founders Double Trouble.

Holy hops, batman! Amazing IPA with huge hoppy notes - and these are floral, grapefruit notes, not earthy pine notes...
Rather than editorializing, I'll just say that I really, really loved this beer...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: An aromatic exotic-fruity and floral blonde IPA. Excellent.
How: Bottle 12oz, Consumed as soon as we got it through private importation, but already many months after bottling date :(
The look: Cloudy glowing blonde body topped by a long-lasting dense white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The hoppy is fresh refreshing exotic and tropical fruits with a floral components. So fresh and authentic is the fruity character that I could have believed I was smelling a cocktail of exotic fruits. In mouth the beer feels chewy, full body, many little hard bubbles. A hefty amount of pale malts creating a chewy bread dough sensation. Some residual quickly washed away by the assertive hopping. In mouth the fresh fruits hoppy aroma morphs into a more grassy and resinous flavors while retaining some of the exotic fruits. Bitterness intensity is in the medium-high range. This was one hell of a good IPA especially considering my bottle wasnít exactly fresh. Not necessarily saying I drink too much but Iím pretty confident none of my neighbours will ever be interviewed on tv and say about me ďhe was a quiet person who kept to himselfĒ.

Iím a wee bit on the fence about this one. Very unique strong citrusy aroma and fruity hop taste from the single Galaxy hops used. Really grassy. Transparent golden yellow. Crisp, refreshing, yet the downside is a slight bitter aftertaste that lingers much.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a fairly hazy light straw yellow with a one finger white head. Ok lacing and head retention and really the overall appearance isnít all that impressive.
The aroma on this really blows me away! i love the tropical fruit nose this one puts out. Tons of pinapple and mango but there are also some really nice Earthy undertones. A touch of dankness in there even.
The flavor just continues the tropical fruit explosion. More pineapple and mango along with that tea-like earthiness that is present in the aroma. Bitterness is on the medium to high side along with a slightly chalky mouthfeel. More stickyness in the finish than I was anticipating but it works.
Overall, a very tasty IPA. I love the Galaxy hop and it is showcased beautifully here. A really nice, unique, IPA that is worth picking up.
