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.

Bomber in trade
Slightly hazy, light peach color, thick foamy head
Aroma leads heavily toward citrus
Taste is upfront sweetness, more mild citrus flavors, some dried herbs, a lot of malty notes, and a moderate to strong bitter finish.
Overall, an enjoyable beer that I wouldn't go out of my way to drink again.

Hazed golden orange, 1.5 fingers of white head, some lace. Lots of tropical fruit on the nose, grapefruit, orange and pineapple, juicy fruit, well hopped, dank with a honey-malty presence throughout as well. Taste is a mix of sticky hop, fruity citrus, pineapple, orange with a bit of a sweet malt closer, quite bitter throughout. Oily medium body, lightly carbonated. Truly great stuff, i'm surprised you don't see tons of ISO's for this, a fantastic DIPA.
