Huge thanks to Mike for sharing this growler. Pours cloudy golden amber hue with marshmellow off white head. Aroma has a nice mix of citrus bitter hops with a touch of pine. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor has upfront citrus tart note, then the finish has a strong and somewhat astringent hop bite. It lets you know that its a double. Even though it doesn’t really taste like a double. Its very deceiving. Thanks again Mike.

750ml growler poured into a Kane snifter.

A~ glowing neon yellow, with a nice fluffy head and some lacing.

S~ crazy citrus hop presence. Nice and earthy and full of life!

T~ pretty much follows the nose, you can really tell the difference between the citra and galaxy. They really play nice together. More mango, lemon like bitterness comes in on the after taste.

M~ super smooth and amazing carbonation as always.

O~ definitely not my favorite of the series but still incredible. I'm still more for the blacks lol
