Excited to try this as I love galaxy hops.

On tap at the Armsby Abbey. Served in a pint glass.

A light orangy-glow to its color. 1 finger of white head stuck around.

Aroma is real nice for a pal ale. Galaxy hops are definitely present and give off a sunny, citric feel. This is the beer's best trait.

Unfortunately it goes down hill a bit from there. The flavor gives off notes of citric hop, but there's almost no malt profile to be found and it tastes a bit too watery. I know this is a low-abv brew but that should really be no excuse for how thin this tastes and feels. What I can make out are almost faint notes of wheat (thought I don't believe it's brewed with any), and possibly some cracker malt. But I'm stretching it.
Overall not bad, and the aroma is real nice. But I think this has room for improvement. If the body came across just a little less watery, this would be great in my book. It's a nice session brew, but IMO I don't think it deserves the high scores I see here.

First had: on tap at NEBCO

Hazy orange-amber pour, with a nice puff of white head that retained well and laced the glass. Obviously showcasing Galaxy hops, with a nice dose of citrus zest in the nose. More citrus in the taste, lemon and orange pith/zest, piney bitterness, with a somewhat muted malt base, a tad grainy. Medium body, crisp and enjoyable. A pretty basic APA, but solid and tasty nonetheless.
