Strykzone (7658) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2017
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Some white haze in this golden beer. A three finger soapy white head leaves sticky lacing. Tropical and citrus aroma. First sips are resinous with pine. Heat that is a little too much for me. Then all kinds of tropical fruit emerged. Pineapples, mango, earth, and some herbal notes. A hint of spice. Malts are barely noticed with all of the hop stuff going on. This had an iffy beginning but was solid after that. The downside is the heat but there are some really nice flavors to be found. In the end, I liked it but didn't love it.

hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 9, 2017
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours clear bright gold with a white head. Big nose of tropical fruits and citrus. Full and resinous body. Some alcohol showing. Flavor is very rich with a lot of tropical fruit, a bunch of citrus, and light but clean malts. Very intense flavor. The finish is quite bitter and a nice pine bitter. Somewhat dry. A simply excellent beer.

Aroma is spicy. Dark pour. Pine needles, tons of malt. Finish is a bit bland. High alcohol content not detected. Pretty impressive. Bottle @ 3 Cellars, Franklin, Wisconsin.

22oz bottle. Bright amber body with ivory head. Melon fruit, herbal, citrus, tropical fruit aromas. Citrus, pine hoppy bitter flavors with a malt sweetness to balance---tangy finish___old school bittersweet ipa.

Single hop Galaxy DIPA. Lightly hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is smooth, airy, mildly dry and has reasonable fine carbonation. Light sweetish malts, light floralness. Mild hop spice. Mellow Galaxy fruit salad and tropical fruits. Light pine on the finish. Nice but could be a lot punchier with the hops.

Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2016
22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear pale gold body that supports a dirty white head. The aroma offers up malts, spicy dank garlic like hops, thin grapefruit and the a decent load of pineapple. The taste delivers bitter grapefruit surrounded by a tropical fruity blend of honey dew melon and pineapple. Toward midway it picks up bitter spicy garlic dankness as well as more grapefruit like hop bitterness. Pretty nice IIPA with enough depth and balance to keep things interesting but this doesn’t get to the point of being rich and chewy. Good nonetheless.

Hazy gold pour with a tight bubbled white head. Wonderful aroma mostly dominated by pine hops. Galaxy is one of my more favorite variety of hops. Great beer.

euniceradio (562) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 21, 2016
22 bomber to tulip. Pours hazy yellow, small white sticky head. Aroma of trop fruit, biscuit, orange. Taste of same. Booze finish for 9.4 is minimal. This is juicy, slightly dank and deliciously balanced for a smash.
