Slightly hazy, decent head retention.

Bready caramel malt, fairly grassy, resiny, muted citrus notes of mango and pineapple. Pretty sweet. Slightly dank.

Toasted malt overwhelms the flavor, fairly sweet, becomes resiny and bitter at the finish. Citrus is underlying, but overwhelmed by malt and bittering hops. Grapefruit pith, orange, and earthy hops emerge.

Pretty smooth body. Alcohol warmth isn't as much as expected.

Too bitter for my liking. Hop flavor is somewhat muted by malt and bittering hops.

Hugely drinkable strong DIPA. Handsome orange ambef color in the pint shaker. Modest foam. Warm and fragrant, and less sharp than lots of IPAs, but plenty tangy. This is just a great hop-- Galaxy seems to be fruity with some resiny taste, but not so outrageously bitter.

A spicy nose with hints of cardamom. Full rich flavor with plenty of malt, though the body is lighter than lots of big beers. The hops are just outstanding. Served in a pint at Pizza Port San Clemente. Yee-haw!

Review from Notes (10 oz.)

S: All around strong citrus and pine notes, dare I say almost like a particular herb.

A: Very nice golden appearance with excellent lacing.

T: Strong resin aftertaste with notes of citrus. All hops with nothing else coming through.

M: Extremely smooth with a bit of coarseness at the end.

O: This was an excellent IPA. This review made it so that a a ranking number appeared (88).
