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.

Tap at Short’s in IC. Very cloudy amber brew with a long lasting eggshell white head. Massive nose of grapefruit and peaches. Also a touch of dough. The taste is huge grapefruit and a little bit of bread crust. Touches of roasted pecans and bell pepper in the finish. A big bright brew.

phaleslu (7373) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2015
22 oz. bottle via in-person trade in St. Louis. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a small eggshell white head that settles into a film and leaves some spots of lace in the glass. Pretty dank nose, with herbs, lemon, weed, sweet malts, tropical fruits, fresh cut grass, and straw. Like strong hop pellets at times. The flavor has the same herbal fresh hoppiness with some sweet malts and tropical fruits to balance things out. Juicier. Light-medium bodied, with modest carbonation and a bitter, fruity mouthfeel. Very nice IPA.

shigadeyo (3190) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Citrus zest, lemon cookie, toffee. Pours out like bottled lime juice: cloudy, dirty, greenish-yellow color. Medium light to medium, creamy and well carbonated, good mouthfeel. Citrus with touches of pine and grass; definitely showcases the Galaxy hop well. Medium body, average mouthfeel. I really like this; reminds me of a lighter version of the local Rivertown Insurection IIPA.

DrSilverworm (8177) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2015
22oz bottle, thanks to local raters for sharing. Totally hazy amber orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving decent bits of lace. Some nice tropical fruit, more piney, some pineapple hop up front. Doesn’t last too long though, a little brief in the finish. Bit of yeastiness to it. Moderate bitter, lighter sweet. Light slick finish. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Solid, tasty, interesting stuff.

Bule (1123) - California, USA - MAY 23, 2015
22oz bottle pours a hazy yellow amber color with a bit of a head. Nice hop balance to this. Can really taste the different flavors of the hops without it being over taken by the bitterness.

bytemesis (4267) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle - thanks Reece! Pours cloudy orange, medium creamy beige head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is dank, pine, passionfruit, mango, melon. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, juicy and fruity. Medium body, silky mouthfeel. This is good beer.

deyholla (7720) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a peach hue and a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has lots of bitter citrus with some sweet grains and juicy sweet citrus underlying. Flavor starts with bitter citrus and light grains then has a growing juicy citrus note.

piscator34 (2090) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle shared with oakbluff. Murky orange in colour with medium carbonation. Intense hoppy aromas of papaya, mango, dank basement, and weeds. Flavors are of pulpy citrus and tropical fruit, with hints of pale malt and mint. Medium bodied with a solid sharp bitterness. It’s basically hop juice... tasty, tasty hop juice.
