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… Pours hazy and peach-colored with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma offers a mélange of citrus and tropical fruits and peels flanked by whispers of both pine and phenolic, farmhouse spiciness. Full-bodied with a lightly oily mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. The flavor furnishes a boatload of citrus rind and pith bitterness. Heaps of it. Finishes crisp and bitter… b-i-t-t-e-r! Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

shrubber85 (7938) - 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 (6951) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2013
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.

DrSilverworm (6926) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2013
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.

b3shine (5819) - Indiana, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks solid; malty though. A transparent lighter copperish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells hoppy with notes of citrus and Belgian yeast, and some sweetness from the malt in the backbone. Tastes like it smells, but less hoppy and balanced, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A decent BIPA that smells better than it tastes.

Draft sampled at GABF 2014 with Andrew, Mel and company. Pours a light golden orange body with white head. Aroma is fresh citric hop and fresh yeast. Mouthfeel is soft to medium-bodied with notes of citrus fruits, pine hop, yeast, lemon and tangerine.

nimbleprop (5181) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2014
12oz bottle via Mystery Box BIF. Pours a murky, orange amber with some lacing white head. Nose has honey and guava, some ripe pineapple, some candy sugar, mango, a little clove. The Belgian yeast is definitely lurking. Flavor has loads of ripe pineapple, guava, mango, some mild clove, a little grass, some green banana, a lot of yuzu like bitterness, even some kumquat. Plenty of honey and candy sugar too. Full bodied, sticky, bitter finish. Liked this alot. Made me thing of On the Wings of Armageddon with Belgian yeast.

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.
