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.

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

DuffMan (7798) - 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.

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.

Ferris (7555) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle - Grassy, skunk and some grapefruit. Hazy pale yellow with a decent white head. Nice grassy and tons of lemon and orange notes with the right amount of bitterness. Dry finish and nice,

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Tropical fruits, citrusy, pine, bready, lingering bitterness. Great beer.

Prufrockstar (1442) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle at RBSG thanks to djd. Cloudy yellow pour, some white head, some lacing. Aroma: pine, weed, citrus, stone ground mustard (I wonder what gives this impression -- I’ve had it with zombie dust and other well loved beers ... But I digress). Hop-forward, dry, moderately bitter, slick oily texture. Yum.

djd07 (5889) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with medium frothy white head. The aroma is pineapple, mango, pine. Medium mouth, strong pine, light tropical fruit, resin finish, very good.

BOLTZ7555 (2960) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle acquired via world-class trade with ReeceG! Hazy light honey pour with a tightly packed eggshell crown that left multiple rings of lacing. Orange pith, lemon zest, and some bright tropical fruit accompany a bit of dusty, earthy, grassy hops. Touch of peppery spice as well. Solid, for sure!

Loved the body of this one. Poured a super hazy straw orange. Really like when TG beers have that hazy look. Interesting semi funk fruity aroma. Were it really got interesting was in the taste. Was expecting pineapple because of the look, but really all I got was a huge bitterness. Earthy bitterness I couldn’t but my finger on. Eventually I figured it out. It’s like a citrus rind bitterness. Maybe comparable an aperitif.
