4.75/5  rDev +3.9%

The beer comes in a hazy bright golden color.

The aroma jumps out of grapefruit, citrus peel, and lots of green grassiness.

The flavor follows with that tropical flavor in the front, grapefruit throughout, a hint of bready sweetness, and then onto a signature Galaxy grassiness and almost aspirin astringency. The beer is slightly dominated on the back end by bitterness.

Clearly still world class beer, but I prefer Abner and Societe and Solitude # 6.

Growler filled 8/8/14 and poured next day into Belgian ale glass.

A) Pale cloudy amber-yellow with a two-finger head, significant retention, and plenty of lacing.

S) Very strong grapefruit up front from the hops. Some orange, lemon. Malts in background.

T) Grapefruit, orange, lemon, some tropical notes as well. A little bit of pepper on the finish. Dry malt in background.

M) Medium-body, medium-carbonation, dry finish. Unbelievable balance. This is fantastic.

Just phenomenal. Right up there with the very best of DIPAs.
