Notes/Commercial Description:
Our friends south of the equator really have this hop growing thing figured out and we are ecstatic they do. Without them we couldn't brig you Unicorn Galaxy. We built a platform of malted barley and wheat then atop that we constructed our ode to Galaxy hops. The hop character really shines through with aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, tangerine, citrus, passion fruit and fresh cut grass. Drink early, drink often.

Bottle to GI Chalice
22oz

Batch 81
Thanks to KevanB for the gift

App- A very traditional looking DIPA to me. A lot of blending of oranges and yellows with a huge 3 finger head. A wonderful amount of cling. I mean even in a GI chalice this thing was a thing of beauty. Cling and lace for days with a slightly deeper hazy color behind it.

Smell- A nice aromatic beer. A bit of a deeper citrusy hops. A bit tropical with more guava and mango than grapefruit and orange. A good amount of hops and then balanced by just a touch of grassy and herbal malts.

Taste- This was a good DIPA. I liked the balance of the citrus and the bitter hops with a bit of caramel and lime juice. A unique grassy flavor with a bit of butterscotch. A little bit all over the place but it works.

Mouth- A nice a medium bubbly body with a medium and dense citrus laden carbonation. Big amounts of tropical fruits with a nice hoppy bitter balance behind it.

Drink- Damn this was good! 3rd coast is creeping on my WC. Oh wait I am from Chicago. I should love this and I did.
