Pours a clear jgold with a 2 finger, creamy white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Very strong aroma, lots of pineapple heavy tropical fruit, grass, citrus, some cat box, a little cereal and mineral notes. Flavor is sweet, cereal and toasty up front, giving way to lots of tropical fruit, more passionfruit than pineapple, bitter citrus, planty hops, some cat box (in a simcoe kind of way), mineral notes and a little planty garlic. light bready yeast and toasty malt. The finish is where it sort of falls apart, the garlic and simcoesque cat box notes seem to build up on the palate and make the finish less than stellar and leave a sort of salty garlic, citrus, pineapple aftertaste. Light to medium palate, creamy, slick feel and moderate, slightly sharp carbonaiton. Off dry finish. Good stuff, but the weird hoppy notes got to me after a while.
Decent IPA, with a big citric-pine nose and a surprisingly floral back end. Starts out bright and somewhat grassy, then grows an herbaceous orange-tinted hop middle, and the finish dries out considerably without growing overly bitter. Could use a bit more IBUs, and the appearance is nothing of note, but still a drinkable IPA. Wallaby501 (72) - - JAN 9, 2017
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 (14680) - 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. Imaena (2315) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - NOV 12, 2016
Draught. This is a rock solid IPA that has incredible hop aroma and bite. Grassy yet not too bitter. Well done brew. willisread (3293) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Tap at Jís. 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!

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 (3086) - 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 (90) - 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. rubbishystuff (2521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 Thanks to iNBe. Citrus tropical fruits, decent malt backbone. Good. Serving: Bottle Drjohnrock (761) - 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 Iíve 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.
