Notes: Galaxy and Warrior hops join forces to create a beer with a bitter punch. Big body, bold flavor, with a boost of citrus rind and just a kick of spiciness in the finish, Intergalactic Warrior is an India Pale Ale worth fighting for.

From an older can dated BB 12/25/21 but not sampled until April 17, 2022. A Christmas beer sampled on Easter.

The look is about what one would expect in the style with its hazy, pulpy, murky orange-amber and lasting white head,

Aroma of tropical fruit with an emphasis on pineapple and pear. Lower profile sourdough bread.

Medium-full mouthfeel.

The taste was sweet and then hopped up with those lingering tropical fruit characters. This was still a decent enough beer but I expect it would have been far better four months before I wrote this review.

A thanks to the captain of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a hazy orange/golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, resin. Taste is dank, citrus, some passion fruit, moderate bitterness. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer.

This is the 4th IPA I've had from Toppling Goliath and they have all been excellent. Nice cloudy orange color with a standard 2 finger thick off-white colored head that faded very slowly and left nice foamy lacing coating the sides, followed by a dank nose that was full of citrus fruit. Flavor had tangerine, grapefruit ,orange peel, and then some mango or papaya, with light caramel, sweet malt, biscuit and some pithy or piney notes in the finish. Real fine level of bitterness, no sign of the ABV and super to drink. Very tasty overall.

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice cloudy pale yellow color, with some very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is very nice, hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, peach, apricot, nectarine, melon), with a pretty nice little diesel like. The taste is very nice, hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, peach, apricot, nectarine, melon), with a very nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV is hidden very nicely, with a pretty nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, this is a very tasty beer. Orange Julius! Addictive! MilkShake!

Pours a very cloudy golden color with a thick foamy head. Head retention is amazing. Lacing is excellent. Nice juicy citrus aroma. Orange and grapefruit. Nice juicy citrus taste as well. Orange peel on the fruit with some mildly bitter grapefruit on the end. Mild resin on the aftertaste. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Great looking juice bomb with the aroma of Galaxy Hops, it's a WOW beer. Not sure about the Warrior hop but it's creamy smooth and a delicious beer. Another enjoyable and different IPA. On Tap at "What's On Tap".

A fresh 16oz can into a 16oz pint glass.

S: Grapefruit, blueberry, lemon rind, sweet hops, biscuit malt, light dankness of cat pee on the xmas tree.

F: Med-bodied, crisp, bright, juicy mouthfeel with a med-length finish. It is lightly drying.
O: A beautifully bright tasting fruity and crisp IPA overall. It is excellent in it's style. I really love the taste and feel of this wonderful beer from Toppling Goliath.

16 oz can.

Pours a hazy pale gold color with a massive, sudsy 3 finger off-white head. Good retention. Leaves a few bits of lacing along the glass.

The aroma is a bit muted, but there's notes of ruby red grapefruit, orange rind, pineapple and passion fruit.

The flavor follows the nose: Grapefruit, orange rind, passion fruit, and pineapple with a subtle cracker malt presence and a spicy pine finish. Drinks far stronger than the ABV suggests.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a relatively dry finish. Has a long, lingering bitterness that coats the tongue.

Overall, this is a pretty good NEIPA. It definitely leans more on the bitter side, but it's solidly well-balanced and easy to drink.

From a 10-day old can, pours a very hazy, almost milky light gold. Smell and taste are exploding with tropical fruit, citrus and resinous pine. Big bitterness in the finish, which offsets the fruity hops nicely. Loved this one.

middle of the road hazy for me try the other TP NEIPAs as top- shelf offers. This one just did pop for me, your typical tropical flavors just nothing standing out here.

I got a can of this beer from my good friend and old neighbor from the 'Wego. It poured a hazy golden with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had dank citrus fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with dank citrus peel presence. The mouthfeel was medium in body and had good carbonation. Overall it is a solid beer.
