Had the chance to try this on-tap at the brewery and next to Sue, this is easily my favorite beer I've had from TG so far.
It looked absolutely killer in the glass. A beautiful hazy blood orange with a great 2 finger head that stuck around for the duration.
The smell of this made me realize that Galaxy hops are possibly my favorite hop variety I've ever had. Just pure dank, citrusy goodness that would fill up the room if I wasn't outside at the time.
The taste. Wow. Another testament to my love for Galaxy hops. I got a nice slap of bitterness up front but was soon greeted by that HUGE dank, earthy, and citrus goodness that this hop provides.
The mouthfeel was definitely was sticky, but mouthwatering. I was smacking my mouth a bit and almost drooling from this beer. It really makes you eager to drink more, but it's not dry so it's also easy to sip on.
Overall, this is one of my favorite offerings from TG that really show off the goodness of the Galaxy hop. It's a must try if you're at the brewery. It's a true show case of how good a single hop beer can be. Amazing stuff.

Appearance: Pours a hazy bright orange color. This one is almost glowing in my glass. A very inviting look. Head retention is average.
Smell: Very dank and viney smelling. Very intense hop aroma. A pleasent malt character shines through nicely also.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Dank hops and bitter citrus notes dominant the palate. Some rich toasted caramel notes seep through as well. Mouthfeel is very good also. Very good bitterness level along with a medium bodied balanced mouthfeel.
Overall: A very well done IPA. Very glad to have the chance to try this one. Love to try these single hopped brews.

A - Fairly hazed, bronzed orange color with a small, compact, light, fluffy white head. Disappears fairly fast leaving only faint patchy lace.
S - Very strong citrus/tropical fruit hop aroma. Grapefruit, peach, hints of passionfruit. Very inviting. Touches of sweet bready and cereal malt.
T - More bitter than the nose suggested, but other than that very similar. Huge citrus hop flavors with a background sweet cereal malt. Resinous and bitter flavors come in pretty strong on the finish.
M - Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty smooth but has a strong, crisp bitter finish.
D - Lovely hop flavors with just enough malt for balance. A touch too bitter and hoppy for me to consider it overly drinkable, but the wonderfully juicy hop flavors make me want more.
Notes: On-tap at Sanctuary. Very enjoyable DIPA. Alcohol is pretty much non existant and even though there is a strong bitterness, it isn't over the top. Galaxy hops are very well displayed. Another great IPA by Toppling Goliath.
