look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Color is a darker shade of copper. Forms a moderate sized cream colored head. Tight, creamy bubbles. Good retention, eventually falling to a patchy surface coating and a thick ring around the edge. Moderate, clumpy, lacing.

S: Aroma is full of Galaxy hops. Lots of citrus, orange, mango, and tropical fruit. Moderately sweet with an appreciable bit of caramel malt.

T: Taste is a blend of caramel malts and orange-citrus hops. Fairly sweet. There are notes of orange and some tropical fruit salad, but unfortunately, these don't come through in the flavor as they did in the aroma.

M: Full bodied and too malty for my personal preference. Moderate bitterness. Lower carbonation.

O: A good beer and a well done expression of the Galaxy hop, though it was too malty for my tastes. Certainly an East Coast IPA, but, considering this is from Mass, I'd say you can't get anymore East Coast than that.
