COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is a Double Belgian IPA brewed exclusively with Galaxy hops. The nose is an impressive blend of citrus aromas reminiscent of guava and lemons. It also has subtle Belgian yeast esters. An intense, clean bitterness dominates the flavor profile, with little malt character to compete with. A fruity yeast sweetness is noticeable in the finish, alongside a resounding bitterness.

Patrickctenchi (6031) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle: Pours hazy amber, small off-white head. Pine/grapefruit peel aromas...semi tropical. Taste is pineapple, grapefruit, sweet orange/tangerine. Almost a slightly cooling menthol edge to it. A very good Double. I wanted to make some cryptic Hitchhiker’s Guide remark, but Shrubber85 beat me to it....Oh Belgium!!!!!

shrubber85 (10670) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. Tangerine/lemon malt and grapefruit peel/pine aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet tangerine malt and strongly bitter grapefruit peel/pine flavor. Very tasty - not quite "the effect of having your brains smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick" but still nice.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2016 Bottle thanks to Kyle! Pours a hazy deep peach with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has lots of tangerine with hints of peach, passion fruit and a bit of resin. Flavor has more bitter tangerine with a hint of bread and light fruits.

Ataraxia (492) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Slightly hazy golden peach color, moderate white head. Unfortunately, the strong spicy aroma of black pepper, hay, and musty barnyard dominates the mild fruity hop elements. Some spruce bitterness in the taste. Lively and smooth, with a residual bitterness in the finish and little alcohol presence. Waste of Galaxy hops, if a musty spicy Belgian yeast strain is used.

Gription79 (2828) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, huge thanks to Clownoisseur. The aroma is Belgian yeast driven, strong spicy yeast note followed by some melon, tropical fruits, resin. The flavor shows off the galaxy hops, tropical fruits, passion fruit, the Belgian yeast character is spicy/phenolic. Not a bad beer.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle from MikeM as part of a free beer contest. Thanks man! Pours hazy orange with a very small ring of white creamy head. Aroma of oranges, grapefruits, mango, pineapple, and a hint of Belgian yeast in the background. Smells very sweet. Vegetal raw hops are the first thing you taste, yummy x Flavor is sweet orange rinds, some light grapefruit and mango, and interesting dry Belgian yeast finish, and then lingering orange rinds and grapefruit left on the palate for a good while. Bitterness is very present on the way down. Big, heavy, and slick with medium carbonation. This is pretty unique and very nice.

12oz bottle In a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of fruity and citrus hops, some Spicy yeast, and pale and caramel malts. A really good blend of the hops amd Belgian style. Average texture. A good beer.
