3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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!!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
