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. (520 characters)

32oz. growler into a Pizza Boy pint glass.

Pours a 1 finger coarse white head with low retention. Beer is a semi-clear pale orange. Lacing is layered and thick with good stick. A good looking beer considering the container format.

Nose is citrus, pine, cane sugar and a grapefruit hop bitterness. A touch of soapiness too. Moderately aromatic.

Opens papaya, citrus and grapefruit. Some pine hop bitterness with a light malt backbone for balance. End is hoppy and citrussy with a bitter finish and a lingering, sticky hop aftertaste. Pretty much what I want from the style.

Light bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Slick and quenching in the mouth and goes down smooth with some light bubbles. Clean finish with a slightly filmy aftertaste. Appropriate for the style.

NEBCO is slowly starting to be recognized for the pale ales and this one doesn't disappoint. Nothing really stands out here but that's a good thing. Very drinkable with a nicely balanced flavor profile and appetizing nose. Worth trying. (1,016 characters)

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange. Small white head and a thin collar.

Smell - Bright juicy orange, then musty and dank grassy hops behind it. Barely any malt.

Taste - It's all orange hops. Very nice. Cracker malt. Light grassiness and bitterness in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Light body. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Low carbonation is probably a function of the growler, but even without it, it's drinkable and delicious. (472 characters)
