And the unicorn parade marches steadily on... bottled today, and mere hours old. Allowed to settle in the fridge for a couple hours, it was actually still cold on the shelf from delivery.
Yellowish orange body, lightly hazed with a sizable head of white foam that leaves behind a flurry of spindly lacing in the glass. Retention is good, and lasts for the duration of the glass.
Bursting with tropical Galaxy hops in the aroma, big mango, orange, passionfruit, a light fruity sweetness with catty dank botanicals, sandalwood plus a hint of the wheat in the background.
Juicy mango and bitter orange peel flavors right away, with a resiny bitter orange zest that lingers into the finish. Caramel hints in the aftertaste, some greenery and grass clippings towards the end. Creamy feel, damn near perfect in that respect. Not overly sweet or boozy, it just glides across the palate. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better than Citra Ninja or NvU, Galaxy Unicorn hits it out of the park. Well done gentlemen.

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.
