Growler poured into a pint

A pretty clear orange amber with a firm two finger off-white cap. Good retention with big sip marks coating the glass.

Galaxy hops leaping into the air. Huge tropical notes of mango, pineapple, papaya, guava, and ruby red grapefruit. The super clean malt bill is just an afterthought.

Clean malt slides in first before a burst of tropical goodness. Juicy mango and papaya with guava and pineapple poking through. Some ruby red grapefruit bitterness sweeps through, leading to a moderately bitter and dry finish with a little help from the rye.

Oily and resiny feel. Good carbonation, medium body. A little bit of rye, hoppy bitterness and light tropical fruit juice lingers.

A solid DIPA on all fronts. Simple, easy malt bill with a heavy hand of galaxy hops. Galaxy hopped beers continue to tickle me just the right way.

Serving type: growler
