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 Shortís 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.

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.

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.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2012
8/10/12. On tap at the GTMW pre-party. Clear golden pour with a nice khaki head. Spicy and dank, almost vegetal aroma from the hops. Dank, bitter hop flavor as well. Kinda weird.

arkurzynski (1459) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Pre-GTMW at Dexters. Hazy mango color. Big hop mix of pine, citrus, grapefruit, mango. Flavor is wonderfully astringent pine, mango, grapefruit. Mild fruity malt. Excellent dry finish. POW.

Tap at TG. Big citrus and pine aromas, juicy grapefruit, resin, floral, dough, light malts. Pours a very murky light golden, obviously lots of yeast, thick white head and lots of lacing. Flavor: grapefruit juice, a touch of orange, pine, yeast and bread dough, medium bitterness for the style, light grains. Medium body and carbonation, smooth on the palate. Another nice TG IPA - I like that the ABV is on the low side.

First! Draft at Bodega brewpub La Crosse, WI. Nice resiny hop aroma. Murky orange body with thin ring of head at the top. Dishwater appearance. Appears to have lost a little carbonation in the 5 minutes I spent adding it to the site. Some orange rind aspect fairly strongly on the tongue. Something seems slightly off but not enough to Detract from the brew. Very good.
