Picked up a 750mL growler at the brewery on 9/26 and drank it on 9/29. Pours a cloudy orange color with not a big head, leaves some lacing. Big wallop on the aroma of oranges and citrus, sweet, with a nice malt note in there. Resinous hoppiness. The taste is pure sweet orange juice, much more so than the Edward I had before. Some tropical notes in there, too, and the bready and doughy malts try to form a backbone. Body is a bit thinner than expected for a DIPA, but overall quite light and easy to drink, no alcohol present. Simply a lovely, citrusy DIPA from those awesome Galaxy hops!

Appearance is of murky golden wheat with a classy gentle blanket of off white foam and a solid ring of lacing that cascades pretty evenly around the bowl of my glass. The aroma brings bold orange/lemon citrus with a lightly grassy mustiness. Very appetizing. The flavor delivers big juicy orange grass with mild lemon edges and piney malt. Fairly intense but mellowed slightly by the woodsy grain ideas. The body is medium plus with a finely full carbonation that blankets the tongue and finishes with a lively but mildly sticky feel. Just a class delivery of wonderful hops here.

Fresh squeezed orange juice. 2 finger foamy head that leaves behind a nice dollop. Great lacing. Smell is an earthy pine with dank citrus. Among other citrus, some orange and grapefruit peel. Limey bitterness in the back. Signature HF feel. Great beer.

On tap at Armsby Abbey, this beer is loaded with tropic fruits. Pineapple, and grapefruit smells all over the place. Taste follows the nose. One of the best ipas I have had from HF! So well done.

Is there a better showcase of galaxy hops available? I doubt it. Got this on draft at Armsby Abbey in Worcester, MA. This beer is chock full o' pineapple and grapefruit goodness. It's a hoppy punch in the face and oh so delicious.
