Back in orbit for a VERY short while. Outta-this-world single-hop, double IPA, showcasing the Galaxy hop. Weighs in at a theoretical 170 IGUs (that’s “Intergalactic Bittering Units”).

4.11/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange body. Nice white head. Chunky thick collar.

Smell - Doesn't smell the way I expected it to. It's very tropical, but has a must or mineral aroma too. Kinda detracts. Doesn't smell that sweet.

Taste - Much more dynamic. Orange, some piney hops, lots of tropical fruit. Grainy and a little bitter in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe pushing medium heavy. Creamy carbonation texture.

Overall - Wasn't enthused at first, but this really grew on me. Very tasty.

Twisted Galaxy - Toppling Goliath Brewing Company - Decorah, Iowa - Imperial/Double IPA - 7.20% ABV - This fruit forward DIPA poured a hazy golden orange color with a small head that dissipates quickly. The nose featured pungent aromas of fresh peaches, juicy oranges, grassy earth, and bready malts that blend together subtly. The mouth was a bit dry, but featured flavors of oranges, peach, guava, and mango. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with a crisp, sharp, and fruity finish that showcases the Galaxy hop well. This was a solid beer, but not nearly as good as King Sue, and some of @tgbrews other offerings. Thank you to, @billylightning for getting this one out to me! 93/100

Pours a lighter golden, sticky lacing. Grassy, floral nose. Juicy grapefruit, pine, orange rind hoppiness. Long finish. Good not great.

The amazing hop taste blew me away! Well balanced with the malt for a clean finish which i'm always looking for in a beer. Well done!

Sorry, I just did not get this one. I love Toppling Goliath brews generally, but this was a slight disappointment.
