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.
