Purchased at The Beer Store approx. $2.45/473ml can. Served at 3deg C in a water glass

A- Very good. Above average deep golden colour. Opens well with a solid 2" head settling down to a film within a minute

S- Very good. Citrus scents.

T- Very good. Light, carbonated highly, long finish. Have had Galaxy hops blended with other hops in the past but on it's own, first time... enjoyable.

M- Light on the tongue!

O- Very good. Definitely will buy again. Won't win awards or anything but pretty nice none the less.

Food Pairing

This nice little IPA paired well with... mild cheeses. Nice gouda or creamy Havarti.

A:
Pours a clear amber with a finger and a half of puffy off-white head that pretty quickly settles to a healthy-but-thin covering. Meh retention; little to no lacing.

S:
Malty with ripe tropical fruits. Pineapple, brown sugar, papaya, weed, faintly resinous.

T:
Dry and tropical. Funky dry earth flavors with some hints of fruitiness.

M:
Dry, velvety. good strong carbonation with a pretty smooth finish. Light to medium body and pretty easy drinking.

O:
Pretty good beer in general. Very good beer for the price.
Say what you will about some wacky macro "craft" brews, this was better than I had anticipated. It pours okay and had a nice, fruity, fairly busy nose and a relatively beefy taste. While it is obviously to some extent a cheap beer and made to be generally inoffensive and approachable, it is nice to get a baseline of beers like this that are cheap and available to give people (myself included) a little training in individual hop flavors just for the hell of it.

3.29/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a pale orange colour, cap of white head, not much in the way of lace. Smell is citrusy and quite fruity, a bit of mango, orange gummy bears, fairly generous hop profile, underlying sweet malt. Taste is initially dry and bitter, muddy mixture of hops and malt, honey graham cracker, citrusy but no fruit specificaly makes its way out of the muddy mix of flavours, bitterness softens mid palate with a light sweetness, hoppy aftertaste. Medium - high carboantion, medium body. This is OK, not something I will probably ever purchase again but if offered to me I would be alright with drinking this again.
