Bottle share on 7/30/16, thanks to Jeremy. Hazy straw colored pour, small wispy head. Fruity aroma, tropical, melon, mango, citrus. More big fruit flavors in the taste, but still allowing some maltiness to make itself known. Very refreshing on a hot day, almost too fruity for an IPA, but delicious.

A: Hazy, dark orange in color with a thin white sticky head.
S: Phenomenal! Literally out of this world. Smelled like freshly peeled grapefruits, pineapple, melon, and tropical fruit galore. This batch of galaxy hops are insane.
T: Similar to the nose. Insanely juicy, melon and grapefruit pith notes pop out.
M: Medium carbonation, slightly bitter, sticky hops. Creamy, pillowy body.
O: Fantastic beer can't say enough about it.
