Very hopping, with light citrus. Oily, but too sweet. Good, but not great. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Euston Tap. Slightly cloudy blond/amber colour, with white creamy head. Aroma is slightly twiggy, pine hops, some lemon and a bit of stink. Taste is smooth and creamy, some citrus. Nice, but something weird in there too putting me off a bit. Not really getting all the tropical fruit to be honest.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours a lightly cloudy gold with a very tight, white foam cap. Citrus, wet grass and piss in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with juicy cat pee, ripe tropical fruits, some straw and white sugar. Light bodied with soft, fine carbonation. Sweet, sticky-juicy finish, more pee, some citrus. Very nice beer. If the condition was a touch better this would be a knock-out.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask. Light golden color with an attractive creamy white head. Fresh, subtle nose. Acid, lemon, light citrus funk. The taste is mildly bitter, easy to drink summer fruits and grass, slightly acidic tang. Light/medium body, subtle carbonation. Overall, a nice representation of the galaxy hop varietal. Reasonably tasty.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
One of the best pale ales to surface from Thornbridge in some time. Showcasing the Galaxy hop wonderfully with its golden, malty base. The thick, sweet body of the beer itself lends itself well to a such a lovely hoppy ale. Elements of sage and tangerine characterise the finish what is a worryingly quaffable beer.
