16 oz. British style pint purchased at the brewery, unknown creation date, drank over 30 most fantastic minutes

A: 3/3 - yellow-orange coloration, impressive clarity (can both read and see through), received with subtle glass lacing, small alcohol legs

S: 9/10 - lots of tropical fruit - pineapple, mango, papaya, but also picking up on pine resiny aroma pouring out of the glass; very little malt on the nose

T: 17/20 - on the front of the tongue, there is a mild tropical hop bitterness that quickly succumbs to pungent pine predominance (surprisingly for Galaxy but I would guess that there are PW dank hops in the mix); on the middle of the mouth, the hops continue to assault, which some minor malt balancing; little detectable alcohol; dry aftertaste --> awesome session IPA here!

M: 4/5 - little think but expected for the low ABV; low carbonation really accentuates the hops; low alcohol notes

O: 9/10 - I came for Orange Whip but got one of huge best session IPAs/aromatic APAs that I have ever tried; absolutely incredible dank hop aroma with high drinkability is rare as a full-figured supermodel; I could drink the fuck out of this, which totally satisfies this hophead; and, for $4.25/pint, this is highly recommended!

OVERALL: 44/50

A: fairly translucent dirty golden, maybe an orange hue in there as well . Larger soapy bubble edge the top of the pour
S: orange-candy maltiness, with some wet carboard background
T/M: this taste reminds me of their Orange Whip. Orange flavors on top of a bitter grapefruit taste. Carbonation is good. The longer taste is a little earthy, with a slightly grassy lingering feel.
O: not like I recalled from the last time I tasted, disappointingly so. As stated, it seems to be a similar recipe to another of their beers. This one is a little lighter in ABV, and does have a slight feel of a session ale.

That all said, it is a decently tasty session IPA, and probably a good "entry-level" IPA. If I were to consider it as such, I would likely go up a rating notch on feel, overall, and maybe taste.
