4.51/5  rDev +17.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Clear golden, nearly translucent with a white head.

S: Lots of fresh orange, tangerine, mango, citrus peel, pineapple, tropical fruit in the nose.

T: Malt is subdued to let the flavors of the galaxy hop character. Pineapple, pine, bitter citrus peel, fresh orange, tangerine, lemon. Quite tasty, if a bit too bitter.

M: Medium bodied and smooth enough for an IPA.

O: Mouthfeel is a bit off, but the taste and smell more than make up for it. This is definitely recommended. I LOVE GALAXY HOPS!

Pours a clear, copper color. One inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of piney hops, slight alcohol, sweet malt, slight citrus, hint of grass, hint of citrus hops, and hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Bitterness level is rather Tastes of piney hops, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight alcohol, hint of citrus, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, good aroma, appearance, body, and blend.

4.14/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - pours a hazy orange with a short beige head. A few bubbles.

S - galaxy hops provide passion fruit and some restrained dankness. Slightly oniony, but not bad. Soft malt note.

T - is like the aroma, but it doesn't taste oniony. The fruityness is not as intense as a homebrewed Galaxy, but this beer probably isn't very fresh. Regardless, the passion fruit flavor is still there. It's a nice flavor that is unique to the Galaxy hop.

M - medium body. low-medium carbonation. Firm bitterness with a short sustain. A hint of malty sweetness.

O - there aren't many beers that use Galaxy hops and this one is a good example of what the hop can do. It's a little more bitter than a lot of IPAs that people seem to like, but it isn't a palate wrecker. Enjoyable and flawless.

4.21/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a DFH IPA glass.

A: Generous, fluffy head. Some sticky lacing. The beer is a clear amber-gold.

S: Soft, round, and fruity. Great tropical hop.

T/M: Mmm! Very good, with the oddest bitterness. It's almost tobacco-like in its earthy, leathery qualities. Some fruit, some dryness, and a clean finish. If this is Galaxy, I love it. Aftertaste is definitely herbal, like tea.

O: Great IPA! Highly recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Hazy amber color with a two-finger, off-white head of foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of citrus and grapefruit.

T - Grapefruit and other tropical fruits. Spicy with a nice caramel backbone.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale.

O - This is good. Less malt-forward than their Double IPAs that I've tried.
