3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crystal clear new penny copper with a small, white head. The aroma has candy-like orange and grapefruit, with some floral and earthy notes, and some light spice. There really isn’t much malt in the aroma, aside from a hint of caramelized sugar, and very faint roast like you would get from amber malt. The flavor is similar, and reminds of a Dogfish 90min, with a lot more bitterness and a light but silky mouthfeel. Balance leans towards very bitter, but is surprisingly drinkable.
Tap at butcher’s tap in Chicago during glbtq.
Dark gold with medium white head.
Fresh hop nose. Slight resin and pine. Good bitterness. Sticky bitter finish that is drying. Crisp. rosskyle (720) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2017

12 ounce can from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served fairly cold from a pint glass. Vaguely hazy medium amber-gold body with a fluffy, lasting cumulous cloud of off-white foam that laces thickly as it fades...sweet-spicy aroma of honey, mango, light resinous pine, more citrusy elements showing up after a few minutes, pleasant but nothing fantabulous...fairly intense bitterness throughout, light sweetness, a touch syrupy around midpalate but drying out nicely enough towards the finish...no sign of it’s ABV really, this drinks to me more like 5.5% and is very quaffable. Doesn’t in the end excite me, it’s a little too full or something, but definitely worth a try or two, or more if it’s on sale and fresh. thedm (6177) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2017
This draft brew from a restaurant was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a uncarbonated body transparent orange brown colored body and a very good lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild citrus hops malt and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. SamP01 (668) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2017
12oz can. Pours clear golden amber with a medium white lasting head, some light lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus, pine and grapefruit notes. Taste has a nice fruity flavor, tropical fruit, citrus and grapefruit, some pale malt. Has medium body with good carbonation. Finishes with a good fruity flavor, tropical fruit, grapefruit hops bitterness which intensifies as it warm up. Leaves a lingering dry hop bitterness as it goes down. Overall a very good, full flavored IPA. very nice.

This is an excellent IPA that stands out among its peers. Clean, crisp aroma of pine and citrus, although the aromas are a little light. The taste starts similar with pine and citrus, albeit with a more pronounced profile, and then the hops hit like a blast from a laser cannon. The right amount of carbonation gives this beer a lively mouthfeel, and lends a longish, crackling finish of flavor.
After a pint to start the evening and a pint to finish the evening, I now want to strap on my jet pack and save the galaxy from nefarious evil-doers!

Can, Trader Joe’s Chicago. Light amber colour, nice white foam. Crisp pale ale this, just enough sweetness in the malt base and a good whack of citrusy lime grapefruit slightly floral hops, medium to long bitter finish. Supremely moreish. A lovely little drop.

The hop aroma is there. Light crisp hop forward beer. The Australian hops shine on this one. Sweet soft tropical fruit flavors. Nothing lacking in this IPA. More smooth than the flagshipIPA. Malt doesn’t shine through and who wants it to. Balanced super hoppy. Thin fading head. Carlisle (743) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Can. Grass and spruce hop aroma. Grass and caramel with some subtle resiny pine notes. Some citrus in the dry finish. pineypower (3325) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2017
Can. Pours out a light hazy copper color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of lots of sweet cereal malts, Caramel, grass, pine, some spruce tips. Taste is much the same, lots of sweet Caramel and bready malts then a punch of resiny pine, grass and some biscuit and hoppy find is. I usually like galaxy, but this is just the wrong malt base for me.
