Not your father’s Pale Ale. Definitely new school. Similar to NEIPAs ... sweet, but refreshingly citrusy. Crisp enough mouthfeel and finish to still be an American Pale Ale. Winner.

650 mL bottle. Very hazy orange. Smells of tropical fruit and doughy pale malt. Tastes of various tropical fruit. Sweet citrus and mango. Comes off sweet, though it isn't that sweet. Some grapefruit. It isn't the most dynamic. Medium body. It's very good, but a little monotonic.

Pours from the bomber a murky orange-yellow with a minimal white head that quickly fades.
Aroma is big citrus, a little floral, tropical and stone fruit.
Taste is citrus with a pithy and bitter punch that follows and lingers. Pine resin, orange pith.
Mouthfeel is medium.
Good stuff but I liked the DDH version more.

A: Beer pours a murky light oranged body with a large amount of bubbly white head. Head disapeared slowly leaving behind a good sized ring while drinking. Solid looking beer with a nice amount of lingering head.

S: Beer has a fruity aroma to it. Smell is very similar to fresh oranges. Assuming the scents are likely from the galaxy hops. The beer has a large but one note aroma profile.

T: The beer's taste profile is more balanced than the nose. Getting juicy flavors of the galaxy hops, but the beer also has the dank earthy notes of citra. The fruit flavors are the dominant taste but there is also a hint of earthy spice like flavors. Well balanced.

M: Very soft creamy mouthfeel. No real noticeable amount of alcohol present while drinking; very easy drinker. Beer has a nice fruity feel to it. Extremely smooth and easy to drink.

O: Probably my favorite Sue version I have had. The beer balances the fruity galaxy and earthy citra mix very well. Very smooth easy drinker that looks the part of a pale ale.

22oz bottle purchased at Moonshine in Harwich. Hazy orange color and a citrusy/hoppy nose. Principal flavors are mango, orange and pineapple with a touch of grapefruit on the finish. Another very enjoyable beer (our 9th) from TG.

Before trying this beer I was unaware that this was the galaxy hopped version of the original Pseudo Sue Pale Ale. After living in Boston and trying many Trillium beers with galaxy hops, this felt like a taste of home.

It pours a hazy orange with a vibrant citrus smell as soon as you open the bottle. Hazy, crisp, and clean. Medium bodied and tropical. Absolutely love beers of this style.
