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.

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.

Bottle thanks to Kyle! Pours a hazy deep peach with a white head that dissipates to the edges. 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.

4oz on tap at HopCat East Lansing during the Shorts tap takeover. Mostly clear orange color. Good thin slightly off-white head. Good spots and ropes of lace. Nice retention. Smooth, lighter carbonation, more dry finish, bigger body. Awesome big grapefruity citrusy aroma. Some biscuity malt. Only lighter belgian candy sugar, not bothersome. Nice moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light spice. Awesome, big, interesting belg IPA.

Bottle: The aroma consists of fruit, bubblegum, Belgian yeast, and grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head that fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. There is some sporadic dotted lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate fruit, lighter bubblegum, and Belgian yeast. The finish has moderate-heavy grapefruit and lighter pine. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

this one poured a light orange color with an off white head. ARoma was certainly all galaxy hops, fruity, and garlicy/oniony too. Falvor was similoar, a bit of the belgian type flavors come through but mainly alcohol and tons of galaxy. Pretty darn good IIPA.

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.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - 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!!!!!

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Draft at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Cloudy medium orange body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. The nose is a huge punch of resiny, sweet tangerine and passion fruit. Leafy body, bitter with tangerine, passion fruit, and citrus rind, nice blend of sugars and bitterness but not heavy or cloying. Oily, slick, and delicious.

Bottle compliments of Ned, pours hazy orange with small slow white head. Notes are cream sickle, tangerine, orange sHerbert, malt, and cream. Really interesting brew from shorts. Lots of bitter hops, tastes like the southern tiers from 08-09. Thit.

When blowOffTube said he was holding my BIF box to wait for this release I wasnt sure what to think, but I am glad he did! Pours hazy orange amber with a small off-white head and good lacing on the glass. Aroma is citra-esque with notes of pine, grapefruit, passionfruit, dank leaves, grass, caramel. Flavor is very dank right from the start, earth and tropical citrus. Light sweet, resinous, piney, mowed grass, yeast, zesty bitter orange peel. Medium bitter. Medium body. This was an enjoyable drink - thanks!
