Pours a rich orange copper color with a finger or two of sticky eggshell foam. On the nose its a mango bomb, candied orange, pineapple and some woody pine touches. The palate follows the nose with a hop smacking juicy tropical fruit; pineapple, mango and orange zest. Backbone is clean and a touch grainy with some underlying straw in the finish. Nice bitterness that is more restrained than the last batch !

Had on tap at the source. As another patron had declared, this is a garlicky DIPA; although the wording of it was a bit strange, I’d have to agree. Bitter orange, tangerine, and a pleasant booziness which overcame my senses. I definitely notice a difference between the two Blue Lobster Galaxy DIPAs.
