Pours a pale yellow with two finger white head that falls to a ring that laces very well.
Aroma is nice orange, pineapple and mango very fruity but strangely not overly hoppy smelling if that makes any sense. Malt base is light almost honey like notes.
Taste is light malt some light honey and caramel notes loaded down with hops tangy citrus lime, pineapple juice along with lingering grassy notes in the finish that is light and dry. Some sprinkling of pine needles towards the end, an unusual IPA. it is not what I would pick as my everyday IPA but its nice change to try.
Mouthfeel is light side of medium with some lightly fizzy carbonation.
Overall worth a try not what I would pick to drink regularly but it might be a nice change for someone looking for something different.

Clean and golden upon pouring, with a full head of white bubbles. Heavy-duty, finely-detailed lace, too. Very nice.
Nose is sharp and tangy, with ripened grapefruit all the way. Thirst quenching and delightful!
Taste is similarly citrus-oriented, with a well-pronounced hops profile and a light, citrus-grapefruit vibe. The malt profile here works well, complimenting the hoppy tang.
A delicious IPA, and one I wish were more widely available. High marks, here.

A- Pale orange colored body with a slight haze. Frothy white head that hangs around for a while.
S- Tons of tropical hops; grapefruit, pineapple, mango, maybe even some kiwi. Really hoppy and fruity, smells delicious.
T- Comes through just like it smells. Lots of tropical fruit flavors, tons of hops, big juicy flavors.
M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, leaves a bite on the tongue.
O- A great change of pace IPA. Really stands out from the crowd with the big tropical flavors.

Draft service into a goblet at The Flying Saucer in Kansas City.
A: Clear, medium golden color with one finger of diminishing white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.
S: Hops are featured in the smell, though not as intensely as the flavor might suggest. Mostly floral with pithy grapefruit.
T: Begins dry, with pungent tropical fruit that is over-ripe and funky. Crackery malt follows into the middle, austere in the wake of the early hops assault. Aromatics never fade entirely, tasting alternately green-herbaceous oniony, and awesomely funky. Acidity is moderate the transition, as is bitterness at the end. Slight phenolic taste is revealed as the beer warms in the glass.
M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly acidic on the palate, with moderate carbonation.
D/O: A fine IPA featuring a very modern hops profile. Galaxy hops are not wasted here, although they do not appear as clean as they could be. This beer presents a different experience when bottled, with a much fruitier nose that will require a separate review.

Poured this into a standard pint glass and the brew makes a good two finger thick bright white head, with a cleanly filtered body that is a golden white color. Looks kind of like a Kristalweizen.
The aroma is very citrus in the way of lemonade... Almost smells like a Shandy. There is some pine, but almost smells like Sprite altogether with odd soapy fragrances.
Taste wise it's grainy huskiness with some lemon, and a hint of caramel.
Oddly feels medium in body, which makes this 7.2% a sleeper and can creep on you very stealthily.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a fairly hazy light straw yellow with a one finger white head. Ok lacing and head retention and really the overall appearance isn't all that impressive.
The aroma on this really blows me away! i love the tropical fruit nose this one puts out. Tons of pinapple and mango but there are also some really nice Earthy undertones. A touch of dankness in there even.
The flavor just continues the tropical fruit explosion. More pineapple and mango along with that tea-like earthiness that is present in the aroma. Bitterness is on the medium to high side along with a slightly chalky mouthfeel. More stickyness in the finish than I was anticipating but it works.
Overall, a very tasty IPA. I love the Galaxy hop and it is showcased beautifully here. A really nice, unique, IPA that is worth picking up.

A-nice cloudy gold with a nice frothy white head
S-an awesome scent of tropical fruits and fresh hops. Not such a great strength though. Fairly subtle.
T-comes in with a really decent flavor of tropical fruits and hops. Really it's like a hoppy fruit punch. It's a good mix of the two, though I'd like to see a stronger hops presence. It's really not bitter too much either, only a little bit in the after-taste. It's a fun tasting beer though.
M-dry medium carbonation with a dry finish
O-it's a good IPA. A lot of focus on the fruitiness which isn't a terrible turn from the norm. Even still, I'd prefer a bit more bitterness and hoppiness. An easy drinker for sure. Go out and try some!

Pours out a really clear bubbly yellow with 1/2 finger of white suds. Lacing around the glass occurs.
Smell is mango and pineapple with lemon peel and sharp piney hop. No alcohol here but there is a burn at the end of the aroma that is probably hops and not the alcohol.
Taste is sharp citrus and grapefruit rind with lemon peel and dark piney hops. No alcohol flavor here either.
Mouthfeel is very dry. The only thing left is a blackness that is the floral hops and the slight hint of the 7.2%.
Overall this is a great beer from a So So brewery. Haven't liked much from Schlafly but this is one of the better IPA's out there.. Bravo Schlafly!!
