4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was really great. Potent resin hop aroma with plenty of malt sweetness on the palate to balance things out without being cloying.
The beer’s peach appearance with a fine white head which has significant lacing. Aroma is a bit subdued for an IPA. Piney resiny hops. Spritzy mouthfeel and yummy resin like hops. Galaxy hops are one of my more favorite hop varieties. This is very drinkable for 8%. Its a pleasure and it would be easy to knock back a few of these.

Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours murky orange-brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is pine, resin, grapefruit, toast, licorice. Flavor is pine, grapefruit rind, resin. A bit of a sweetness in there that fades. It feels tired. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 12, 2017
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a semi-hazy amber color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off at a decent pace. Slight messy lace.
The aroma had some piney/resin bitterness playing with some sweet biscuits/somewhat like breadiness.
The flavor leaned into the malts with a sweet glance to pummel the hop tones down a little bit. Still, a nicely blended aftertaste running into the finish.
The feel was about medium bodied with a decent sipping quality as the ABV felt appropriate. Carbonation felt fine.
Overall, another one of those beers that I would say is an "old school DIPA." I’d have again for me, but can understand why a ton of hopheads aren’t going to like this. reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Pours a hazy amber with a thick off white head. ..decent retention and lacing. Aroma has some piney, resinous hoppiness, hints of tea, and a bit if sweet grainy/biscuity notes. Flavor is bitter with rwsin and pine...some slight sweet maltiness that disappears quickly. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, resinous bitter finish that lingers. Old school feel.

12 oz bottle from Growlers to Go, Short Pump, VA the ale poured a cloudy amber color with BIG frothy head, lacing and good retention. Aroma of bread dough and floral hops.The taste has pineapple combined with some citrus like flavors. This is a complex ale with other tastes contributing to the overall experience like honey and caramel malts. The ale has a medium body with average-fizzy carbonation. Elevated alcohol and bold bitterness make this a memorable mouthful. Ronritter (741) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Pour tfrom bottle amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is of hops slight boozeFlavor is of hops, some malt, citrus pine. zubblwump (100) - Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Murky dark amber pour with lively white head. Subtle fresh hop aroma. Bitter bite up front followed by nice solid fresh citrus hoppiness. It’s got a full mouth feel, yet light and refreshing. This is way better half-way through than I thought it would be at that first bitter sip. I really like this one a lot. Niko100 (2914) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2016
