Galaxy pale ale pours a bright, hazy golden color with a slight amber hue. The aroma pops with some dank grapefruit, some lighter citrus and bread notes. This definitely smells more like a an ipa, and the taste follows through with that as well. Big citrus and grapefruit taste that you'd find in a ipa, but there's very little bitterness. I would imagine the ibus are 40-50. The taste is rounded out by a bread malt and creamy mouthfeel that provides balance, but this isn't quite full bodied. Yet, at 4.8% I wouldn't expect it to be since this is designed to be a session beer. This is a really unique and amazing beer. This teeters the line of session ipa and APA as it packs the hops of an ipa and the balance of APA . This is extremely drinkable and very flavorful. Its a shame this is growler only, and if your in the CT region be on the lookout for the next release of this.

Growler shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul.

The beer is golden with a mild haze and a thin white head. The aroma offers dank citrus, grapefruit, oranges. Citrus up front with some delicate bitterness in the back. Dry and clean finish. Tangy with a mild tartness. Very tasty.

Serving type: growler
