A: Pours a hazy golden yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Citrus and pine up front along with some a light breadiness and floral undertones

S: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and light pine along with the dry honey and floral undertones. Moderately bitter. Finishes with lingering citrus and pine

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Definitely on the drier side

O: A very good iteration of the S&S series. Super drinkable and balanced. Galaxy and Simcoe stand out nicely

Appearance: Arrives hazy and honey colored with a two finger head; good retention and some clumpy lacing

Smell: Pineapple, mango, grapefruit, honeydew melon, and white wine grape

Taste: Pineapple and mango forward with melon and white wine grape undertones; some grapefruit bitterness in the middle but the finish is dominated by the white wine grape element

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation

Overall: An NE IPA that takes quite a nod to the southern hemisphere

Pours an opaque reddish-orange akin to a ripe nectarine. Head is a finger and a half of white foam, and retains well. Aroma is tangerine, nectarine, guava, mango and mandarin orange. There is just a dash of bready yeast at the back that breaks up the initial sweetness just a touch, although the sweetness is the defining note of the aroma. Flavor profile is tangerine, nectarine, mango, guava, orange, lemon, grassy, earthy, and syrupy hops. Initial sweetness is throttled back just a touch at the mid-point to display the more earthy, syrupy qualities. Sticky hop qualities linger long after the initial citrus chorus open. Dynamic from start to finish. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a soft, pillowy texture that is accompanied by just a light silty grain. Overall, dynamic, but still showcasing the favorable citrus notes out of the gate.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 12oz can.

Dull gold in color with a heavy haziness. There’s a fingernail of eggshell white. The aroma is of honey, citrus, and tropical fruit. I’m tasting melon, honey, and citrus. The mouth is smooth and creamy.

12 oz. can.
Canned on 10/21/19.
Moderate pour yields a nearly one inch white head over a murky golden body with nice, sticky lacing. Nose of tropical, citrus, tropical, citrus, tropical, citrus fruit with a tad honey. Taste mirrors nose with a bit of white grape from the Nelson Sauvin hops punching its way through the tropical and citrus fruit. Nice feel and overall, another great offering in the S&S lineup. Cheers!

Drinking fresh out of a growler filled today on site. As great a hoppy offering as you will find. Hill keeps this series alive and well. Love galaxy hops!
