On tap at Tullycross in Manchester, CT.

A - 3.75: Looked pretty nice with a light, hazy, golden/orangy color. Probably the best part about this beer.

S - 3.00: IPA, you say? Where are the hops? Smells more American wheaty than anything.

T - 2.50: Really not impressed with this one at all. I got a bad combination of half-assed IPA mixed with your typical American wit swill a la Shocktop. Overpowering orange/coriander with light hops desperately trying to punch their way through the heavy veil of wheat. Very odd, to say the least, and didn't do it for me.

M - 3.50: Mouthfeel wasn't anything special, but didn't hurt it either. All tapped beer goes down smooth. :D

O - 3.00: Not a fan. I love Sixpoint and so was expecting great things from this IPA. I'm actually wondering if if even got the right beer... I'll get it in a flight next time and will edit this review accordingly if anything changes.

The pours out in a hazy grapefruit white peach color.

The aroma is wonderful. Very Galaxy with the very ripe fruit, citrus, grapefruit, white grape, mango, passionfruit, tropical fruits.

The flavor follows with a good mix of citrus, a bit of tropical, but also grass, pear, grape, and other fruits that generally do not come out in other hops. This is a really refreshing, but flavorful hop. There's a light bready malt on the back of this with a light bitterness on the back.

For those who have had Amazeballs, another Galaxy single hop, this beer reminds me a lot of that. A really well made brew that shows off how the hop holds up by itself.
