I like head as much as the next guy, but this is ridiculous. This beer takes nearly a half hour to pour out because the carbonation is ridiculous. The appearance is a hazy orange yellow. Smell is of toasted bread and hops. Taste of bread, pineapple, and hops. Decently balanced but nothing strikes me as a quality of a great beer. Mostly this beer just doesn't need this much carbonation. It's annoying. The mouthfeel doesn't end up smooth or creamy, rather slightly watery, like a flat coke.

Way over carbonated. Poured a 12 oz bottle down the side and still only got half the bottle into a pint glass.

Once it settled down, the color was a perfect golden brown.

Nice citrus and hoppy scent.

The flavor was bitter without being balanced or pleasant. I couldn't rate the mouth feel any higher because of the high level carbonation.

One of my favorite ales. I love the clean taste of the Galaxy hops. However, I have had some inconsistency in batches/taps.
