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.

reviewed from notes taken 1/6/2014

poured into snifter glass.

batch # 255 56 57 62

Appearance: Pale golden with a tinge orange bodied beer with 1 full finger of white head. The head has good staying power and leaves a thick lacing all over the side of the glass. Head eventually drops down to a thin cap.

Smell: Sweet oranges and tropical fruits. Mild pine notes. Bready malts. Smells a little soapy and "catty". Slightly floral and "perfumey".

Taste: mild almost moderate bitterness level in this DIPA. Starts off with flavors of chalk and resinous pine. Then the citrus and tropical fruits show up. Loads of pineapple flavor. Sweetness from the malts taste like bread and a hint of honey. Grapefruit and lemon zest in the finish that linger for a short time; it got light bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation levels. This beer drinks lower than its listed 9.5% abv.

Overall: This is another fantastic DIPA by Pipeworks! It is in my top 3 favorite pipeworks DIPA's. In the same company with Citra and Simcoe. I like that Pipeworks can make DIPA's that arent brutally bitter, but are still really full of those hop flavors. Very nice representation of galaxy hops!
