4.29/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly couldy pale gold with a one-inch white head. Leaves a nice lacing down the glass.

Smell: Strong dose of citrus hops up front - grapefruit, tangelo, clementine. A little bit of tropical fruit as well. Very pungent and juicy hop presence for a pale ale. Better hop presence than a large number of IPA's out there.

Taste: As far as pale ales go, this is once again exploding with hop flavor. Huge grapefruit and tangelo flavors along with a bit of papaya. Very mild onion on the finish, which is a fairly minor complaint, but still holds the beer back a bit. Very high perceived bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Very. very dry. Bitterness dries the palate considerably. Light bodied, appropriately medium-high carbonation.

Overall: I love galaxy hops. As far as the extent to which this beer delivers overall hop presence it's on the same level as Zombie Dust. It's a little bit...messier for lack of a better word. Regardless, this is a truly excellent pale ale.

Bottle opened and no explosion! Enjoyed from my BT batch 001 willie becher. Brew poured a foggy sienna orange with a thin fizzy head that had staying power from the carb that steadily swam to the surface. Nose is a malt bomb so this must be on the old side since everyone talks about how hoppy the beer is. The bottle has 111414 stamped on it, not sure what that means, but this is no hop bomb. Flavor is also malty with bitterness on the finish. Not a big fan of this one, would love to check it out fresher though to give it a fair shake. Not a drain pour but if this is what this beer is supposed to be like then it is not something I would seek out again, but I would definitely give it another shot considering the nice reviews.

Gusher when opened, and a glass full of foam.... 3rd or so beer so far, I'm noticing a trend here. Clumps of sparkling foam that billows above the rim and looks like soap suds. Racing carbonation streams in the glass, tons of foam and carbonation.

Aroma is fairly hoppy, restrained and slightly resiny.

Bitter hops, resiny pine, bitter citrus peel in the dry aftertaste. Nice level of happiness, some IPA's aren't this balanced and drinkable. Carbonation seems high, but it may be a storage issue as this is the 3rd bottle from the same box. Want to try again to get a better overall impression.

Thanks Howard!
