4.15/5  rDev +9.5%

A nice Golden brown/orange colour. 2 fingers of head in a snifter.

Huge nose. A whole bunch of passionfruit and underneath some sweetish notes, maybe from crystal malt.

Follows up the nose very well. A little one dimensional, but that's not really a flaw in a single hop ipa - it shows off galaxy very well and what a hop it is. Mmmm. Not hugely bitter - but bitter enough to be called an IPA, unlike some examples I have had recently.

Feels great in the mouth, smooth but still with plenty of carbonation - ideal for an IPA on tap.

Edit: in the bottle it was nowhere near as good. The wild fruitiness of galaxy stood alone unsupported by adequate bitterness or malt backbone. I will leave the review for the tap version though, as I really liked it. To be honest, I doubt there was a heap of difference, drinking a beer at a great bar with great friends certainly enhances the experience!

4.1/5  rDev +8.2%

Slightly Cloudy, orange/gold with 2 fingers of sticky white head.

Passionfruit, like passionfruit merange dominate the aroma. Smells like a bag of fresh galaxy hops.

Some sweet bready malts upfront, then a big resinous hop finish with reasonable bitterness.

Pretty good body, with ample carbonation.

All in a great, and very interesting IPA, could've bee a touch more bitter, but now im just being difficult
