16oz bottle into Duvel tulip.
A: Pours a dark chocolate brown with a large, dense, light brown head and slowly faded into a fuzzy film. Sticky patches of streaky lace were left down the glass.
S: Huge juicy notes of galaxy hops dominate the nose with scents of tropical fruits and citrus. I get hints of papaya, tangerine, grapefruit and mango. Earthy Belgian yeast just barely pokes through the juicy hoppy onslaught.
T: Follows the nose with galaxy hop notes of tropical fruits mixed with citrus. A mild roasted dark malt presence brings up the rear with flavors of toasted grains and dark chocolate. Belgian yeast comes through in the finish with an earthy, peppery spiciness, and the aftertaste is leafy, roasted, and bitter.
M: Full body, thick, bitter mouthfeel with chewy carbonation. Drying finish.
O: Wonderful galaxy/Belgian nose but I think the ‘dark’ aspect took away from what otherwise could have been an even better Belgian ipa. Still, a very good beer that’s worth checking out, but I probably won’t go for round two.
