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.

Pours a clear golden yellow with good-sized, lingering head. Citrus aroma and tropical fruits. Flavor was quite bitter, a bit minerally, actually, but strong citrus and bitter hop bite. A winner.

CanIHave4Beers (3322) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - SEP 20, 2014
On draught at the Lava Lounge.
Pours golden and fairly clear with a nice tight white head & nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is very fresh & hoppy with lots of citrus and pine. Itís aromatic, fresh and inviting.

The flavor is very big & hoppy with a moderately high bitterness that is well balanced with a nice juicy hop character. Itís got melon, grapefruit, tropical fruit, citrus peel, & pine.

One of the chilliest servings of a Hop Patrol beer Iíve ever had.
Sheesh.

Grewler poor @ casino hotel. Very light gold ale with a bright white head. Aroma is zesty, think lemon and lime peels or whatever. Some diesel. A bit of skunk. Not very bitter, lots of fruity hop notes. Clean finish, good carbonation. Grate.

cbfobes (2304) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 17, 2013
On tap at Dexters, pours a hazy orange with a thin head, the aroma is of really dank hops, a lot of garlic and spice like, not my favorite type of ipa, the flavor has a dank front end as well, mouthfeel is nice, just not my kind of ipa, I like my fresh and lively, this is more dank and in your face.

[On-tap, old rating] Pours hazy orange amber with a nice white head with good lacing. A little hot, and a good dose of melon. Light grapefruit rind as well. A little thicker than Millenium Falcon. Long finish. Not only is this an old rating, but it also is not a particularly great one. Iíll have to try this one again next time Iím up at TG.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Draft on tap at Dexterís Pub (Madison, WI). Pours a richer golden amber hue, well hazed, some darker glow, sun hues on the edges. A frothy white head sits atop, thicker ringer with some decent lacing. Aromas preach that Galaxy hop presence, bigger fresh bitter earth, florals, and dancing in and out with citrus jabs. Bitter earth, touches of melon, florals, and grass. Firm bitterness, melon, grapefruit, and touches of white grape. Rich nose with big bitterness. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, preaching some decent bitterness, moderate and growing up front. A plain pale/bready malt element moves quickly into a firmly bitter middle. Touches of florals, soap, gentle citrusy life. Backend is earthy, floral, a touch of white grape. More rich floral bitterness, flashes of grapefruit, grass, and some resiny pine elements. Bitterness seems more on point, rich and stronger than the Pseudo. Flavors are firm, yet donít assert themselves aside from a richer bitter feel that really linger on finish. Touches of bready and pale malts are non-descript. Really, this beer is about the hops. A touch of spice, finish is strong bitter fresh hops, touches of life. Nice well bittered beer, smaller body. Right up my alley. The flavor/citrus element from the front falls off but still some good flavors on the back. Great nose. A bit weak on body. Good flavors, good beer. Preferred the Sue for itís Citra element.
