Poured from the bottle into a Deschutes pint glass.
Pours a super light, light orange with a small white head. It's almost the same color as the label! Head doesn't last long, but leaves some decent lacing. Surprisingly light colored for an IPA, but it's super tasty looking.
Smell is a puncher. Just wow. Galaxy hops will take the craft brewing world by storm by year's end. Lovely mango, tart, passion fruit and citrus smell. Very sweet, with minimal resiny quality.
Taste follows. Uber punch of the most flavorful hop on the planet, next to cascade. Lots of mango, citrus, melon, apple. Very juicy quality. The contribution the hops make to the othewise light beer are quite wonderful - one of the few beers I've ever had that the hops contributed to the drinkability of a brew. The hops make me want to drink more and more of this.
Overall a very stellar brew.

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.
