4/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Had a pint on tap at Prime 16 in New Haven, at the suggestion of the bartender when I asked for something local.
Nice hazy copper/orange. Well carbonated.

Nose is piney and maybe a bit grassy. Malts come through.

Taste is an all around solid pale ale, trending towards an IPA. There is a strong hop presence. Some citrus. No discernible ethanol.

I also had a little taster of their Sea Hag IPA, and the Galaxy Pale seems much better based on a limited comparison.

At under 5%ABV, this would make a good session beer.

Serving type: on-tap

A: very cloudy; gold with an orange tint; 1 finger white head that reduced quickly to a thin film;

S: grapefruit, pineapple, and orange; juicy;

T: same as the nose with some malt background for balance; some bitterness on the finish, but not a lot; citrus flavor stays to the end;

M: medium bodied, maybe a little lighter; carbonation was on the light side; crisp, dry finish;

O: a lot of really good flavor for a 4.8% ABV. easy and enjoyable to drink;

Serving type: on-tap
