4.35/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

16oz can in a Samuel Smith's Imperial pint glass.

Bleached golden orange color, dense and hazy with little translucence. The head is a 3F billow cloud to start then settles in at about 2F before settling some more, retaining nicely and leaving wisps of lacing.

Pineapple and other tropical fruit, lemon citrus, uncooked dough, cut grass.

Pineapple and orange, both bring pleasant sweetness. Other tropical flavor includes mango. The fruit flavors are intense. A bit of raw dough.

Silky smooth medium-light bodied. Slightly candied, juicy, and bitter all the same. The alcohol is in disguise.

This beer is intense and does not quit-it piles on-flavor and feel. As much as I like it, as the rating proves, I could not drink two in a row.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is incredibly cloudy with a full white head.

Aroma is a wonderful orange candy with a pithy fruit peel bitterness.

Taste is a lot more pithy bitterness with a littl of that orange hop candy at the end.

4.33/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours an extremely murky pale golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising slowly along the edges of the glass and moderate burnt orange + medium yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a couple of small to medium sized patches of thin film surrounded by a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy tropical/mango, tropical/pineapple, citrus/tangerine, and tropical/passionfruit hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of cereal grain + biscuit malts with a hint of oats and grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of cereal grain + biscuit malts with a hint of oats and grainy sweetness. That is followed by just shy of strong flavors of juicy tropical/mango, tropical/pineapple, citrus/tangerine, and tropical/passionfruit hops which imparts a hint of bitterness which fades away almost instantly leaving juicy tropical hop flavors lingering through the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially slightly crisp with a smooth, almost creamy middle and a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Wow - this is by far my favorite of the Rinse/Repeat beers so far and does a really nice job of showcasing the Galaxy hop flavors and aromas. Easy to drink with very well hidden alcohol and refreshing. Very enjoyable and one that I will be happy to have again in the future.

Tallboy can from Tower ATL, 11-19-17

Westbrook's best beer as far as I can tell. So bright and refreshing it jumps out of the glass, looks like pure pineapple juice. Need to get my hands on more of this fast. I'd put this more in the new Pales category as opposed to an IPA. Drinks similarly to Creature Comforts Automatic or MIA's MegaMix.

4.48/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look is hazy soft gold with a finger of white head.

Aroma is big tropical fruit..sweet mango and papaya mainly.

Taste is mango, papaya and a bunch of other tropical fruit. Solid bitter bite on the backend.

Feel is prickly and lively. Carb is moderate to high.

Overall if the bitterness was dialed down just a bit and the mouthfeel a little softer this thing would be off the charts. It is quite good as it stands and I'm not complaining. Westbrook did a fantastic job with this one so far.

Picked this up at Cottegehill Package Store in Mobile Alabama. Great Ipa. Extreme amount of tropical fruit. With a cherry finish! Unlike any brew I've ever encountered. It's at the top of my hot weather list. Great recommendation from the staff.... One of the best bottle shops I visit once a year undoubtedly...

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a golden yellow color and a somewhat hazy texture. There was an inch of foamy, long-lasting head. Fantastic lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of hops, citrus fruit, a floral quality, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of some light malt notes, some tropical fruit (mango, perhaps), the aforementioned floral quality, a good amount of hops, and some citrus as well (orange). A fairly subtle and very focused flavor. Quite sweet and fruity with a good shot of hops to balance it out.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth, yet lively, finish. Medium-bodied.

O: An extremely solid and tasty IPA. Very much a drinkable beer. Good for the summer months.

Poured from 16 oz can dated 7/14/2017

A: Straw yellow with dense 2 finger white head. Lasting retention and leaving moderate lacing.

S: Big whiff of citrus as soon as I started the pour. Mango, passion fruit, and tangerines. Cracker malts.

T: Lightly sweet citrus dominates the flavors. Mango, passion fruit, and orange juice.

M: Medium body with average carbonation. Very refreshing and easy drinking.

O: Excellent IPA. The can says shower tested and approved. I think this would indeed make a nice shower beer.
