COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This full force blend of Galaxy and Warrior hops packs a bitter punch. Big body, bold flavor, with a boost of citrus rind and just a kick of spiciness in the finish. Intergalactic Warrior is part of the TG Hop Patrol Series of aggressively hopped IPAs that showcase individual hop varieties and complex blends.

22 fl oz bottle via Piscator34. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a big white head and plenty of suspended sediment (over-pour on my part). Aromas are citrus, grass/hay, and funk. Tastes are resin, fruit, and barnyard funk. Medium body, long astringent finish. Suspect we may not have drank this bottle soon enough, a thousand apologies to Piscator34!!

Draft at the brewery. Pours cloudy orange with nice white head. Nose and taste grapefruit. Lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Good.

drpimento (2495) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Really excellent aroma with toffee, caramel, fruit, hops, toast, grass. Flavor’s like nose, but there’s a hint of medicine in the finish. Otherwise it’s just smack dab on.

madvike (3105) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle - Pours amber with a foamy off white head. Nose is Juicy Fruit, pine, grapefruit, and a bit of onion. Malt is dry and gets out of the way of the hops. Taste is more pine and grapefruit, bitter and sharp and resinous. Long bitter finish with a bit more malty sweetness. Full bodied and fluffy carbonation. Pretty oily.

Tmoney99 (12050) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle shared by phaleslu. Poured clear light copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture with soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Light retention and light lacing. Smells of lemon rind, pine and grass. Tastes of pine, citrus and lemon. Bitter aftertaste.

DuffMan (8051) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle, shared at RBSG. Very hazy pale yellow, massive hop character, lemony and piney, light crackery malts, bitter finish in nice balance. Massive character, yet so drinkable. Fantastic.

50belair (2968) - Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle. Yellow pour with a white head. Tropical fruit hop aromas. Fruity hops upfront with a piney backbeat. Mellow malty undercurrents. Average body and mouthfeel.

22oz bomber. Wow. This is solid. Straight down the middle same old same old golden malt/dextrose kind of backbone. Awesome delicate peach, guava..but backed up by some piny bitterness. I would prefer it without the Warrior Hops, but you can tell they flesh it out and add some serious bitterness and balance. Still...you want to see TG just go all out Galaxy, and this is sort of a tease in that regard. Fresh and awesome nonetheless...this was bottled 11 days ago. Perfectly executed modern IPA. Juicy galaxy hops are just flat out delicious. Great beer.
