Yellowish in color with a cloudy body, this beer features a nice, frothy head of white foam that holds its own for some time. The nose on this beer is fruity all the way, with scents of pineapple, orange peel, grapefruit, and more emanating from your glass.
As for the taste, this beer seems to be firing on all IPA cylinders in its own unique way. The flavor, like the nose, emphasizes the tastes of different fruits with pineapple and citrus standing out above the rest. There are other tropical fruit flavors to behold but the beer also offers some nice biscuit and toasted malt flavors before returning once again to the flavor of fruity hops.
IPA are often fruity in nature, but this beer is even fruitier than most and both its flavor and appearance are unique for the style. Its flavor is almost like that of a cask- drawn beer and its taste is second to none for any style. I know that they brew this beer with Australian hops and that accounts for much of the interesting flavor. It is the type of beer that could be consumed very quickly and the alcohol could really sneak up on you if you’re not careful.
This is certainly a one-of-a-kind beer and I am glad I took the time to give it a try. It belongs in a class all by itself and I recommend finding it and sampling if you happen to be in the state of Missouri.

Pours golden orange. Nice 2 inch head. Fantastic hoppy citrusy smell. Loads of orange and tangerine. The taste is incredible. Loads of citrus. Loads of hops. Mouthfeel is full, very carbonated. Overall, this is by far my favorite beer of 2012. I can drink this for breakfast every day. You must buy this beer. If you don't, you will regret it.

Rich sand slightly dark golden hue. Thin cover of foam just coats the top of this brew. Brussels lacing. I can see micro sized bits of hops suspended within this unfiltered ale. Intense vegetal aroma with hints of pineapple,mango,and unripened tomato vines. The flavor while bitter is not as intense as the aroma. The flavor is a blend of grapefruit and vegetal,earthy hops. There's a prickly bitterness on the tongue and an intensely bitter,vegetal aftertaste. I like bitter IPA's but Galaxy hops aren't my thing.

Appearance - Opaque orange straw like color
Smell - dried fruit, bread, lemon zest, with a nice malty finish
Taste - lots of bittering hops up front followed by a tart grapefruit finish
mouthfeel - kind a dry finish for me
Overall - this TIPA was a fun beer to try again soon, hopefully.
