Style: American IPA

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Galaxy hops from Australia give it a funkadelic tropical fruit aroma, and the balance between the malt and hops is wicked. You’ll want to bogart this one because every sip keeps you wanting more, and at 7% alc by vol, this IPA will have you talking jive in no time. It’s going to be difficult not to dig this beer, because it’s far out, man.

Bomber sized bottle found at Bills liquor in Atwater village

This beer has a great look- orange with a super white head that leaves lacing around the glass as you drink it down. Carbonation bubbles goin wild when this beer is super cold - I'll wait a bit to sip

Smells of crazy citrus fruits. Fresh squeezed oranges and cantaloupe. This aroma stands out, not run of the mill at all

Taste is pure balance - malts and hops battle on the palate. No one wins! Techy fight till the end - malts shine and so do the citrus forward hops - making this a delicious taste

Mouthfeel is thick with not much carbonation. Aftertaste is brief. Almost the same when it's cold to when it warms up-

Overall this beer is a winner and I will definately be searching for it when fresh

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance-Cloudy and foggy pale yellow.

Smell-Grass with underlying sweetness from red berries.

Taste-Grass and vegetables. mainly cucumber.

Mouthfeel-Heavy like an ipa. Good, lengthy finish.

Overall-Not a fan of the flavors. I liked the subtlety on the nose best. I liked the Palomino Pale quite a bit more.
