3.89/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

L: Really murky opaque pineapple juice hue. A shy two fingers of yellow-ivory foam with good retention, a nice cap, and wide broken lines of lace.

S: Soapy stonefruits, wet stone, and piney aromas.

T: Follows the nose, off-dry and quite bitter pine resin finish.

F: Really creamy and frothy - chewy - few IPAs at this ABV have such a mouthfeel.

O: A decent but filling brew. The combination of weight, mouthfeel, and bitterness leaves this one in a less than refreshing category. Not bad but not wholly repeatable for me.

4.41/5  rDev +4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Opaque yellow-gold color with a big white fluffy head on top. Great-looking beer.

Flavor: Veryyy nice. Great juicy/piny flavor overall. Grapefruit, lemon zest, papaya, pineapple. A nice bitterness shows up middle-road.

Palette/Finish: Slick creamy consistency with some carb bite. Finishes with pine and grapefruit.

Overall: Great great job Westbrook! This is the best version of Rinse & Repeat I've had yet. Love the Galaxy hops here. Creamy mouthfeel and popping with hop/juice flavors.

Received this beer from Mike, Thank you. The beer is 46 degrees and served in a pint glass. A gentle pour produced a monster three finger head with phenomenal retention. The head is airy, foamy, creamy, and billowy. The head left lacing on the glass as it slowly dissipated. The color of the beer is SRM four a pale straw color with golden hues. The clarity of the beer is hazy with carbonation bubbles.

A ripe fruity nose of citrus with pine, toasted crackers, honey, grass, a touch of earthiness, and yeast.
The flavors in the beer are a fruity hops profile (key lime, tropical, and grapefruit), honey, grass, a touch of earthiness, yeast, and grass.
The mouthfeel of the beer is crisp, fresh, clean, and slightly astringent.
The body of the beer is medium, the carbonation is medium, and the finish is full.
The beer has an excellent flavor profile and a strong malt backbone. The beer is beautiful in taste and looks.

4.35/5  rDev +2.6%
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.

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.

COD 7/14/17. Slightly cloudy golden pour with just a touch of amber. World class head volume, lacing and retention.

Outstanding nose that implies citra and mosaic hops. Orange, tangerine, pineapple and a bit of zest make an impact over a slightly sweet bready base. Mango is more implied than detected. Mosaic provides a light pine background that fades into a light spicy spruce. A bit more aromatic intensity and this would become quite outstanding.

The body is medium and provides a nice slick texture. Near the end, it delivers hints of oiliness and a touch of creaminess that coats the tongue. The body / carbonation balance is outstanding. While not rollickingly effervescent, it provides enough for flavor separation and supports the slick mouthfeel. The finish is slightly prickly and finely bubbled.

The flavor profile is outstanding. Bitterness is mild for the style and is balanced in world class fashion with mid-palate sweetness. Over this sweetness, orange and pineapple emerge as the primary hop flavors. The beginning is a blend of hop flavor that is slightly tart and hints of tangerine zest. After the middle, pine and spruce softly emerge under the fading citric influences. The finish lingers and has just a hint of uncovered alcohol astringency. As the finish fades, zest becomes dominate.

Smell: tropical fruits are easy to detect.

4.48/5  rDev +5.7%
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.
