22 oz bottle courtesy of heykevin. Thanks, bro. Finally getting around to this one. Pours a nice hazy golden orange hue, decent haziness and darkness into the middle is a bit darker with some lice bubbles, frothy whitish head atop is a firm layer dying to a decent film, still full and soapy with decent lacing overall. Aromas throw that Galaxy life, cool green and melon elements meet gentle tropical wafts, citrus and earth. Firm florals, touches of herbal and white grape elements. Runs the gambit and really hasn’t faded much. A gentle sweetness, malt element gets hidden well here. Initial pronounces firm florals and bitterness, cool melon and tropical jabs are a touch sweet but still bitter, citrus and white grape meet florals, earth. That telltale Galaxy life. Middle has a touch of girth, gentle warmth as we start to roll over but the hop profile hides the gentle touch of girth and warmth here better than Imperial Golden Nugget. Backend is green, bitter and a bit tropical. Cool melon, earth and touches of grainy malts taper out with florals, a touch of lotion and decent bitterness sustaining. As the hops fade a bit on the backend the Galaxy loses some of that drive and live and shows some more base. But still, this one preaches a good firm hopping, fun potent Galaxy flavors and complexity. A bit soapy, fruity with gentle tropical wafts, good bitterness, touches of soap and some cleaner body and elements as we finish .This one is on to something. Still good flavors despite a touch of age at this point but I dig this.

Pours gold with white head. Aroma is tropical and citrus hop juice. Tropical fruit and citrus on the hop side. It got much more bitterness than the golden nugget imperial. Lots more interesting stuff going on. Really good. I prefer the golden nugget imperial I had before it though slightly.

Bottle pours a golden orange. Looks like juice in a glass! White as snow head that lingers as a cap and soapy lacing. Aromas are insane! Stinky cannabis, fresh flowers, papaya, passion fruit...so dank! Wow! Taste is almost as good. Lots of depth through freshly ground cannabis, mango, peach, papaya, bitter fresh cut flowers and a slightly acidic grapefruit note. Booze is fairly well hidden. This is a stand out in the TG Hop Patrol series!

22 oz. bottle from HeyKevin - thanks, Kevin! Pours a hazy pale gold color with a white head that leaves spots of lace. Notes of rindy fruits/vegetables (like the rind part of watermelon and pumpkin), onion, grass, straw, melon, and tropical fruit juice (mango, melon, and pineapple). Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a bitter, fruity mouthfeel. A bit of a letdown when compared to the other IPAs I’ve had from these guys.

Bottle thanks to Collin. Milky yellow pour with a white head. Tropical fruit hop aromas. Bitter hoppy notes with mild tropical fruit backbeats. A bit unbalanced but with just enough of a malty backbone to keep it honest. Good body and mouthfeel.

Le galaxy. LE GALAXY. LE GALAXY!!!!!!!.. grosses mangues dégoulinantes, des ananas juteux et collants et une masse résineuse conifereuse très séduisante. Je suis charmé jusque dans la moelle.

Bottle ( very damn fresh ! ) thnx to Geoffrey . Pours clear blonde , rather small white head. Smell is mango , bitter, bit grassy . Taste is bitter, very much mango , with a juicy aftertaste of that same fruitstyle . Some bitterness fading towards the end ( beginning is intense though ) . Nice, typical TG DIPA , fruity , perhaps - like most of their hoppy ones - even a bit overkill , yet really fun to try and really fresh . Keep up the good works !

Snifter at Dexters. Thick unfiltered yellow-tan. Steady white head. Bright tropical hop tones. Very juicy. Really easy drinking. The melon taste is huge. Completely awesome.
