From tap. Pours murky pale yellow. Small white head. Aroma is peachy and slight citrusy. Crisp hoppy. Fruity. Grassy and slight citrusy. Bitter and grassy dry finish. puboflyons (3445) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 18, 2017
From a growler. Unfortunately the keg kicked as I was getting that growler filled so the color of this is an opaque, milky pale yellow with little to no head. Lots of sedimentary deposits. The aroma is nice with its citrus, orange, fruity, and pine notes. Buried sourdough bread sweetness. The body is smooth but light. The taste also brings out a notable citrus zing, orange, and fruitiness. Mild bitterness to end. It is a Session IPA that has the character of a standard IPA. omhper (25251) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2017

Ar: Massive, pungent hop aroma; resin, mango, pineapple, orange pith, tangerine; a bit peppery. Ap: Cloudy straw yellow; medium white head with good retention, leaving a thick cap of small and medium foam bubbles and some lacing along the sides of the glass. T: Burst of bright hops up front; lemon, pine, lime, orange pith, mango, and pineapple; extremely tropical; medium-high bitterness, fairly clean; malt character is minimal, just a bit of saltine cracker; finish is lots of lemon and pineapple. P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation; finish is dry. O: Wow, this is one of the best session IPAs that I’ve tasted; massive hop nose and flavor, with that great combination of tropical fruitiness and classic hop flavors that make these NE IPAs famous! drsandman (1480) - New York, USA - JAN 13, 2017

Can: Poured a hazy yellow white with white head. Huge galaxy hops nose. Taste is hoppy fruity and nice dry finish. LouisP (493) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2016
Une biere orangée, trouble à en être opaque, avec une bonne carbonatation. Au nez, le houblon fruité règne, avec une belle dose de galaxy dryhoppé pour notre plus grand plaisir. En bouche, le houblon est également roi, sans être amer, avec notamment de la mangue qui est bien présente. L’absence d’amertume rend la biere fort facile à boire, définitivement de circonstance pour une session. Le 4-pack de cette lost galaxy doit décidément fort facilement se boire d’une traite. Cette bière est définitivement une belle réussite.

Draught at Hugh O’Neill’s on 5/16/16.thornecb (5949) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Lightly hazy brassy-gold body is topped by a staunch, medium-sized white head.
Fresh yeast, hay and mineral water notes precede a surprisingly clean, lighthearted galaxy hop profile which maintains mostly tropical fruit and seems to be fairly free of the heavy marajuana-like spiciness or any pine resin. Some earthiness and cereal grain character emerges, with warming.
Tight carbonation and soft, malty texture provide a good vessel as the high attenuation and crisp citrus and mango hop notes keep the beer very drinkable. A fair amount of earthy, rather rustic house yeast character and grainy wheat is strongly apparent and somewhat dulls the brightness of the hops but is still enjoyable in its own right. Lots of fruit lingering with low bitterness and no resin. Delightful.
Pours pale yellow into a shaker. Bright white soapy head with good retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Pineapple and mango aromas. Soft with deep, dark grapefruit pith and peels. Very in your face given the low abv. This one grew on me.
