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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance is golden yellow, with a slight rust/orange hue about it.

Smells fun, if that makes sense. Galaxy hops are a "fun" hop to me and this beer's got it. I don't care if you think that's weird. Citrus, wheat, and cereal.

Uhm, wow, this leaves a nasty medicinal aftertaste, not good.

Mouthfeel, pretty terribad.

Overall, I was immediately shocked at how appalling this beer was to my tastebuds, horribly let down.
