Clean, balanced, beautiful aroma and very juicy. This is very close to a TH juice bomb. Ridiculously good and loved drinking it. Would recommend to anyone, one of the best HF IPA's you can get

Served on tap in a snifter.
Pours a beautiful hazy deep golden color with one finger of soapy head.
Aromas are dank hops, tropical fruit and a touch of sweetness.
Flavor is incredible. Tons of orange peel, some tropical fruit and good maltiness in the finish.
Mouthfeel is excellent.
I can't believe it took me this long to try it, but it's fucking incredible.

On tap at Pony Bar.
4/4.5/4/3.5/4
Hazy, unfiltered head. No chance at a head -- full to the brim.
It smells delightfully hoppy, and also lots of fruit. Delightfully citrusy mangos. Lemon peel.
Light bodied and bit fizzy. The hops aren't immediately obvious, but he aftertaste is eternally herbaceous. The maintaste is mostly grain and orange zest, with a juicy-bitter component that is more Tropicana than Copacobana. I certainly wouldn't have known the provenance of tasting blind.
Decent DIPA, but there's better out there. Not HF's finest moment.

Appearance- light orange clear with light creamy head and nice lacing
Aroma is pure galaxy all the way, dank up front with citrus on back end. Smells great
Taste- Very flavorful imperial IPA, my favorite HF beer to date
Mouthfeel- smooth and creamy.
Overall- This is one of my favorite NE IPAs, really good beer. If you like the Galaxy hop, you will love this beer
