A great extra from DuoBob, props! Pours clear as a bell with that classic orange-amber hue, 1 finger of off white foam leaves impressive lacing in the Lawson's snifter.

Aroma is hop forward: clementines and pine needles, malt virtually undetectable. Galaxy-Hero has a crisp, juicy nose, mouthwatering.

Flavors mirror the nose as the juicy hops are front and center, malt strictly there for support and balance.The clementine juiciness is nicely carbonated, and the pine needle qualities play out in the long and enjoyable bitter finish. Very crisp and snappy flavors from the well sourced Galaxy hops. Alcohol is barely noticeable,nicely done for 6.6% abv.

Mouthfeel is a light medium, dry finish, bitterness rests on the back of the palate.

This an easy drinking tropical fruit blast of an IPA, and should hit all the right notes for those that prefer a big juicy hop infusion over malt heavy IPAs. Great example of the style, and highly recommended.

A - very clear, golden color, not much head

S - smells of hops and sweetness, almost like a double ipa

T - strong citrus flavor, strong hop flavor. not bitter at all. kinda reminds me of 3F zombie dust

M - medium carbonation, goes down easy

O - Very good beer, must try this if you enjoy IPAs

22oz into Unibroue Tulip

A: All beer is beautiful

S: All the fruityness you'd expect in the smell given the galaxy hops. Not as much as I'd hoped for but still great.

T: Surprisingly enough, the closest beer I'd liken this to is Zombie Dust, and thats a huge compliment. All that tropical fruit tastes, albeit a bit less pronounced than in the dust.

M: Maybe a bit more carbonated than I'd have liked.

O: Like I said earlier, I felt this was pretty analogous to Zombie Dust. Not quite as good, and at $8 a bomber its a lot pricier, but not many are blessed with a reliable source of ZD. This beer will certainly satisfy my ZD cravings, at least until the shelves are cleared of this.
