COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Outta-this-world single-hop, double IPA, showcasing the Galaxy hop from Tasmania. Weighs in at a theoretical 170 IGUs (that’s “Intergalactic Bittering Units”). Twisted Galaxy is part of the TG Hop Patrol Series of aggressively hopped IPAs that showcase individual hop varieties and complex blends.

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.

kraddel (4167) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2015
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.

Draft pour at the source. Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is fruity and citrusy with a bit of musty character. Taste is dry and sweet. Medium carbonation and a big body.
