3.49/5 rDev -7.9%
22 oz bottle courtesy of clewis901 pours an uber-hazed, light gold color with an ample cap of creamy head. Nice retention.
Nose is quite citric and sweet....not unlike orange vodka mixed with 7-up. Interestingly big and alcoholic.
Taste is fruity, orange peel with maybe more than a few crushed pine needles. The bitterness is big atop a thin-ish body. The malt is a bit flabby and doesnt provide much body. Alcohol is not as smooth as it could be either. Its not bad, goes down pretty easy. I have had a few Galaxy single hop beers and I gotta say...Im not over-the-top in love with this varietal.

4/5 rDev +5.5%
(Served in a tulip)
A- This beer pours a clear golden yellow body with a lumpy snow white head and a slow gentle carbonation.
S- Green full pineapple weed with some woody hop notes. The finish has a sweaty malt aroma underneath that has a bit diacetyl quality.
T- The big green pungent bite has some Munich malt sweetness support with some grassy hops lingering. There is a slight spicy quality to the hops as it opens.
M- The medium mouthfeel with a gentle fizz and so real alcohol heat noticed.
O- The big pungent bite is a monster and has a good unique hop profile, and some nice malt support. Nice sipper.

3.11/5 rDev -17.9%
Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a tulip.
A - White foam settles to a thick collar, wisps, and specks of lace. Transparent golden body.
S - Nice tropical fruit melange, with some sweet sugar cookie and a touch of caramel from the malt character. Sweeter than I expected, and not much of the herbal character that I tend to get from Galaxy hops.
T - Sweet Jesus this is bitter. There's some tropical fruit hop and sweet malt, but it's overpowered by the aspirin-like finish. Rough and unpolished; not sure what happened here.
M - Dry, medium body, with pleasant carbonation. A bit of light alcohol warming but nothing excessive for 8.5%. Some lingering hop oils remain.
D - Other than the barbaric bitterness and terrible finish this is pretty good. Unfortunately that's a flaw that is too hard for me to overlook. I'm with beertooth on this one. My first disappointment from 18th Street; hopefully they tweak the recipe next time around, as I'm usually pretty resistant to high levels of bitterness. A lot of the bottle went unconsumed.
