ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Reviewed 3/1/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a hazy straw color. The head is a two finger white shade with a nice, creamy texture. As per usual in the style, it leaves rings of lacing as it recedes down the glass. S: I really like the tropical fruit bend this one offers. Augmenting the fruitiness is some herbal pine characteristics. Sadly, its nowhere near as showstopping as it could be (or probably was; the bottles over 2 months old), largely due to a lot of biscuity malt shining through. T: A lot of melon, mango, papaya, and guava appears at first, before spiking in intensity at the midtaste. The finish introduces a moderately bitter, peppery bite thats almost minty at times. For a two month old IPA featuring a feeble malt backbone, this is downright fantastic. M: Light and crisp, yet with a surprising level of creaminess to meld with the smooth yet firm carbonation. The flavors leave the palate quickly as they should in an IPA of this nature. Almost supremely refreshing; if the finishing astringency was cleaned up a smidge, Id reckon the score here would be even higher. O: The apex of this offerings hop profile may have been lost - but the thirst-quenching, easy drinking demeanor definitely hasnt. Id seriously consider buying this by the case when its fresh and in season.

Dank and very tropical fruit aroma. Pours golden with a pillowy white head. Very big bite from the familiar galaxy hop with a strange tropical finish- like a passionfruit type taste? Little bit of grass in there too. Overall well done but not sure if I like this take on a galaxy IPA.

Ratman197 (13886) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Bottle poured a hazy gold with a small lasting creamy white head. Aromas of biscuit, dankness, tropical fruit and light grapefruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, dankness, grapefruit and light tropical fruit with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Draught. This is a rock solid IPA that has incredible hop aroma and bite. Grassy yet not too bitter. Well done brew.

willisread (2938) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Tap at Js. Hazy neon straw color with a finger of foam. Big tropical fruit forward nose with some light citrus and lots of mango and peach. Clean on the palate with good carbonation. More fruit, medium to light bitterness on the finish. Solid stuff!

odinstyr (761) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Pours a medium gold with minimal white head. Smells faintly of citrus, tropical fruit. Taste is mild, kind of dull - hint of citrus - mildly sweet not really bitter. Not an unpleasant taste but a big disappointment.

trapped (2590) - New York, TURKEY - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow with foamy off-white head, citrus aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter citrus taste, thin body, medium bitter citrus peel finish. Smooth and citrusy, nice brew.

Clareeses (49) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Pours clear and golden. Aroma is a bit off-putting, almost smells a little sour. Moderate carbonation with smooth taste, heavy on the galaxy hops, piney with bitter finish. A true IPA.

Drjohnrock (739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2016
From 12 ounce bottle purchased at Crown Liquors #14 in downtown Indianapolis, tasted on March 26, 2016. Very cloudy orange/yellow hue, very intense bittersweet nose with pine notes and an earthiness Ive seldom if ever encountered in an IPA, smooth but firm bittersweet taste with ample hops, citrus and earthiness. Really good beer and interesting for style.

A good beer. Strong IPA flavors. Lots of hops, lots of alcohol. Floral and fruity aroma, comes through a little in the finish as well.
