never heard of these guys before, but was pretty happy with this galaxy ipa, a hop I think should be used more widely. this pours a hazy brass color, pushing burnt orange, with a sensational white head that's tall and permanent, leaving sexy rings as it drinks. the galaxy hops are immediately apparent on the nose, sharp and fruity, almost with a bubblegum character, but still citric at the same time. more malt than we probably need here in nose, taste, and body, it crowds out the interesting hops a little more than it should, but its good pale malt and aside from making this beer a little less drinkable, it doesn't really hurt it too much. great hop journey in this one, moving from fruity to bitter and back again to zesty citrus fruit, a very well hopped brew. the alcohol and the body make it a one and done bomber for me, and the carbonation is a bit strong, but the flavors of this beer are its best assets, as they should be in any beer. a great introduction to big muddy brewing for me, I will be looking to get my hands on some more of their stuff, and this is further proof that the galaxy hop needs more exposure, maybe my next homebrew...

a dark copper pour with 2 fingers of fluffy white head leaving behind excellent amounts of lacing. smells of caramel, bready malt and lots of grassy and floral hops, along with a wonderful grapefruit-like citrus. a very bready tasting english style ipa with a nice hop selection. slightly bitter, mostly sweet. lots of bready biscuity notes, caramel, with a light grapefruit flavor, and grassy/herbal hops.
medium body with a creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation.
a nice ipa, doesn't feel like it's all too fresh, but still hoppy to the point where i can feel what they were going for. not a bad beer, more leaning towards an english style ipa rather than the overhopped american. not a bad value for about $5 per 22oz
