This is one of the best IPAs I have ever tried. Much thanks to @buking21 for the hook-up! Perfect hop aroma, tons of juice and dank, glides down. Wow!

I've said before that it's pretty hard to mess up an IPA with Galaxy hops. This beer proves that theory once again, but also shows how to master an IPA with Galaxy hops. It's inviting orange juice appearance is quickly distracted by the amazing aromas which only force you to indulge instantly in the juice, fruity, flavorful bliss of this, dare I say, masterpiece. And if that wasn't good enough, the feel is so intoxicatingly smooth and creamy, with a noticeable bitter bite to make any IPA fan happy. This is how this style of IPA is done folks. Cheers!

L: pours a hazy pale orange

S: smells of mellow tropical fruit. Orange and grapefruit mainly.

T/F: superb. Taste follows the smell and goes down incredibly smooth. Difference between this and double Nelson is how much smoother this one is. A slight soft mango aftertaste seals the deal on this one. Very creamy, medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

O: this one is amazing. One of the top beers I've had. Will definitely be on the search for more.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip. Pineapple forward with a touch of hop bitterness. Very nice cloudy pale yellow look, solid mouthfeel. Well done!
