12oz bottle poured into tulip - thanks to hooliganlife
Pours a lightly hazed dark golden color with some auburn hues. Thinner crop of white head bubbles up and fades into a layer of film with plenty of spotty and patchy lacing around the glass.
Wonderful citrus and tropical hop aromas with pineapple, mango, grapefruit and tangerine. Lightly sweet with bread crust and touches of caramel and honey. Soft warm glow as well.
Stark hop bitterness right off the bat, driven by pithy, juicy grapefruit and citrus. Edges of pine and resin followed by some smoother tropical fruit sweetness. Caramel and honey throughout the malty backbone, which peeks through just long enough to separate the aggressive, yet pleasant hop profile. Finishes bitter and juicy with a light warmth.
Medium body, slightly higher carbonation, sticky and dry on the tongue with a lingering finish. Schlafly has surprised me with their beers on more than one occasion, and I'm happy to say this is another huge winner. As soon as I opened the bottle I could already smell the sweet, pungent hop aroma and couldn't wait to taste it.

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.
