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.

Delicious and interesting. Pours a copper color with thin white head. Really good Double IPA with a belgian twist. Galaxy hops add a different flavor than a more common hop variety. Strong but easily enjoyed. Amazing fruity smell and taste. It really does remind me of passion fruit. Tasted on tap, 10/30/2011. So good I bought a growler to go!

Nose of sweet citric and mild acidity. Quick foam reflex, but a smooth gentle pourer. Deep gold in color with white head. Thin but present lacing. Sweet flesh fruit and citrus flavors carry on wet hop and malt bodies. Lingering but wet finish. Pleasantly flat, sweet and mildly bitter. Very easy for the ABV.

The Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster pours a light orange with a bubbly beige head that lasts a good while and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is so overwhelmed with citrus, tangerine and floral hops that I cannot detect anything else. I would also like to point out that it is glorious. The flavor is also dominated by loads of hops. Overall this beer is amazing. If you are a fan of bitter hops then this is for you.

Pours copper in color with a thin head. The combination of zest and hop make it one the most unique beers I have every had. The fruity zest reminded me of grapefruit combined with the blast of hops just finished off the greatness of this beer.

Draft at The Oak Cafe. Pours a clear orange color with a small foamy head that lingers very nicely and leaves awesome lacing. Aroma is an great mix of hops and Belgian yeast. Passonfruit, grapefruit, banana, oranges, pineapple, and light bubblegum. Taste has a great moderately sweet/bitter balance. Packed with fresh fruity hops and a perfect subtle Belgian edge. Smooth, sweet finish. Medium body, nice oily mouthfeel. Best Belgian IPA I’ve had. Need to find some in bottles.
