A - Dark hazy orange with a gold undertone. Light white head
S - Tropical fruit nose loaded with pineapple, mango, passion fruit and strawberry. There is light hop bitterness near the backend. Absolutely an amazing nose
T - Up front, there is passion fruit and strawberry. Next comes juicy fresh pineapple. The finish is slight bitter hops that adds some slight bitter zest. Quite the balance between the sweet galaxy hops and light bittering hops
M - Lighter body for a DIPA with low carbonation and a light syrupiness to it. Finish leaves resin on the tongue and a slight astringency from the hops 4.25
O - This is the best PW IPA I've had as it shows the galaxy hops just perfectly. There is so much fresh passion fruit, pineapple and strawberries yet it isn't too sweet as it has some slight hop bitterness.

Pours a hazed orange color that's slightly murky with an off white head. Lots of hops in this one, you can smell them as soon as you crack the cap. Awesome hop oils kill the longevity of the head. Not the prettiest beer but still a nice looker.
The nose is pumped up juicy citrus and pine hops. A solid punch of hop aroma with a sweet malt spine holding things together. I can't wait to try this hop bomb.
Flavors of the nose come through and are high octane hops. I do find the citrus notes and pine to conflict with each other but that is hardly a deal breaker. Other notables are juicy fruit, toast and lightly roasted sugars.
A nice tart mouthfeel that has a nice prickly hop bite. A warm finish that also has a toasted sweetness. A great beer and one that I'm happy to have tried. I'll have to keep my eyes out for more pipeworks.

Holy shit - tropical fruits exploding out of the glass. Mango, peach and tangerine astringency with some strawberry sweetness - incredibly fresh pine and sweet grapefruit. Some honey and sweet caramel/toffee malt at the backbone as well. Taste follows suit - incredibly balanced and not very bitter - certainly intense tasting. Lots of tropical fruit astringency.
Just outstanding - one of the best of their line up next to something hoppy and citra.

Intense hop aroma. Very grapefruity with slight pine scent. Delicious.
High hop flavor and bitterness that overwhelms any maltiness. Similar to a white grapefruit, if there is to be any fruitiness. Bitterness is lasting and a bit harsh at the end
Medium carbonation renders an overall dry sensation. Smooth alcohol warming.
Overall a decent DIPA. Would be interested in future batches.
