Aroma is spices, a slightly odd dankness and sweetish malts. The flavor is spices, grapefruit, malts, fruit and a long and mix of tart, slight bitterness and heat in the finish.

Color has a golden, murky appearance with foamy lacing. My first time isolating the Galaxy hop in an IPA. I find it to be rather dry but this IPA has some fruity passionfruit and considerable malt to balance it into a good offering. I still think the Galaxy alone is an acquired taste.

Bottled 3/18/15.

Pours a murky dark honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus zest, grapefruit juice, tropical fruit, and earthy hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and earthy hop flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop and earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that starts out citrus and tropical fruit forward, but more earthy hop qualities come out and take over as the beer warms up.

Serving type: bottle.

Didn't really pour with much head and what was there quickly faded. A deep golden colour and pours fairly cloudy. There is an unmistakable Galaxy hops aroma and on the first sip I found it too bitter, but after drinking a little more it seems better balanced. The bottle says is has a medium malt profile but I don't really get this. Overall a good beer but not great.

330ml poured into half pint

L - orange/brown, cloudy, pours a very thick white frothy head.

S - tropical fruit (mango, passionfruit), hint of pine and spicy notes.

T - very hoppy - intense fruity flavours - mainly passionfruit, followed by woody, caramel malts and a fairly tarty bitterness at the finish.

M - moderate carbonation, dry almost caustic texture, medium to heavy bodied

O - very much a bitter, tropical hop style is Galaxy. Nice, but couldn't down to many in one go.

Golden amber, slightly cloudy with 1 finger white head that dissipated quickly
Bright citrus hop aroma - distinctive and nice
Dank hops with hard bitterness on the finish. Some nuttiness to the beer - not sure where this is coming from, so I am assuming the malt, but it is quite strong hints of hazelnuts and something vegetative.
Light mouth feel with good carbonation

Overall solid - better than the single hop summer IPA I had yesterday. Something nutty in the beer is keeping me interested.

A: Pours a cloudy dark copper color with a good off-white head that fades slowly to nice lacing.

S: Aroma of grapefruit with a hint of pine, fresh grain and a bit of malt sweetness in the background.

T: Taste of grapefruit with a bit of pine. Light caramel sweetness with fresh grain. Good bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Medium body, crisp, clean and refreshing. Nicely balanced.

O: This beer hit the spot. well worth a try.

received today from user bluebetty. off my wants list too. taken too long to get to this. thanks!

light tan thin stable head. cloudy (probably been thrown around a bit the last few days) copper. medium carbonation.

nice flowery perfumy hop aroma with some light malt and spiciness.

bitterness is quite potent, which is great. not too much though as there is enough malt and hop flavour there to carry through the whole beer.

obvious why this beer is held in such high regard. right up there with the best aussie ales.
