Hazy orange-amber with a large frothy off-white foam.

I'm smelling citrusy hops with pineapple, pine and biscuit, and tasting earth, pine, tropical fruit, starting soft up front, but quickly turning sharp and stinging of bitterness overall--maybe the most I've had by TG.

22 oz. bottle split with my wife…this isn’t her birthday beer. That comes later, among other things. Happy b-day sweetie!

The pour is 50/50 orange & yellow. Smells just like orange Gatorade with a shot of pineapple. Sweet.

Intergalactic Warrior - level up! All these NE-style IPAs are beginning to blend together in my head & in my words. Fleshy peach, oranges, & mango tango with a sharp, aggressive bitterness. Lingering background earthiness cut my enjoyment a bit; but the finish is a citric bitterness that clears my palate & the palate of half the guys in the cemetery down the road. Not easy to swill.

Very good effort. It’s getting to the point where IPAs have to be truly extraordinary to cut through the bitter clutter & this one is close.

Golden yellow in color. Slightly hazy in appearance. Pine, grapefruit pith and grapefruit juice. Dry, bitter finish. Clean tasting, not too sweet ipa. Good stuff.

Rich, frothy head. Clear with amber color. Full nose that has some sharp hops but also fruity. Well-balanced up front. Some sharp bitter hops in finish. Decent beer overall but not one of my TG favorites.
