look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a growler into a Goose Island tulip. The pour is murky and orange with a pronounced hop haze. It sports about a finger of fine white foam that dies down to a clumpy lace. The nose is decidedly citrus-like and fairly sweet with lots of fresh pineapple and ripe peaches.

Medium-full body with a hoppy, yet balanced flavor. Substantial malty flavors greet you up front, providing ample sweetness to withstand the orange-rind bitterness of the galaxy hops. The end result is a hodgepodge of fresh bread, honey, orange candy, and grapefruit. The finish is delightfully bitter and lingering, while the heavy malt load gives an extremely creamy feel.

Galaxy High is an Imperial IPA worthy of the makers of PsycHOPathy IPA. It's big, bruising, creamy, and dripping with hoppy goodness. Hopefully, MadTree will someday can or bottle this so more BAs can have an opportunity to try it.

4.21/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly chill hazed golden copper with a lingering cream head.

Earthy pea-like hops, oniony, muted citrus, and honey malt form the aroma. Floral hop character becomes evident, along with resin.

Resin, catty hops, and citrus pith dominate the flavor. The finish screams of bitter pith, pine, and a savory character. Good malt backbone.

Body is moderate, as is carbonation. The resiny finish is slightly harsh, but balanced well by caramel malt.

Great variety of hop character, with enough malt to support and add complexity.
