A : Pours a nice Amber color, with nice two finger off white head at the top, with some nice lacing around the glass as you drink this one.

S: Lots of tropical fruit coming through, with some brown sugar, nice resin note as well.

T: Lots of tropical fruit up front, with hints of resin and some biscuit notes as well, pine notes throughout.

M: Medium bodied, with a good amount of carbonation, some stickyness at the tail end as well.

O: Overall a good DIPA, nothing over the top, good flavors and well balanced as well, enjoyed this brew From CS.

Solid example, lots of stone fruit, lychee, aromas and taste are the same but aromas dominate the balance.
Creamy mouthfeel. No alcohol. Nice to have fresh.

Resinous overall, in an less-piney more earthy way. Not the strongest nose, but really nice Galaxy hop flavour, carrying a good balance of tropical juice and pine. Malt bill is a little roasty, which isn't my preference, but enough sweetness as well to highlight the juicy, tropical flavours you get with Galaxy. Overall tasty and drinkable, but personally I wouldn't buy a 4-pack at this price or even a pour on draft if there were something else familiar or new.
