look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On tap at 3 Stars in D.C.

Pours a clear yellow with fine, soft head.

Smell is slightly tart and juicy with notes of citrus, melon and grass.

Taste is slightly sweet to start, then adds plenty of citrus and some spiciness along with a nice, solid bitterness before a long, slightly dry finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a nice and balanced DIPA, well made.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pineapple, mango. Taste is nothing like the aroma. It is of citrus, pine, a bit dank, fairly bitter. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

Medium gold with a faint haze and a coupla fingers of head... Double dry hopped with lupulin powder, but no specific hops cited - though whenever I see "stars" or "space" or "galaxy" in the name I think there are Galaxy hops involved... Canned on 9/11/18...

One of those pine and citrus characters, with an undercurrent of citrus fruits, suggestive primarily of grapefruit - kinda dry and pith but with a little sweet juice to it - and an over-current of pine airs - a little dank, a little woody, and leaving a trail of resinous shellac behind... Medium-light weight with a moderate bitterness, lightly sweet, moderately carbonated... There's nothing wrong with this beer, but also nothing that sets it apart from the masses...

This was on tap and poured into a tulip glass. The color is hazy straw with a nice white head. The aroma is of citrus and piney hops. There is a bit of grassy hops that are there as well. The taste is much like that of the aromas. Citrus with a touch of earthiness floats around the palate. The body is a little thin. Even with the haziness there seems to not be a balance of hops to malt (not that people would be looking for that in this style, IMO). I enjoyed this brew.

Another big, impressive pour from 3 Stars, with a wet, white, tight bubbled head atop a mostly transparant goilden body. Nose is grapefruit and mint and mixed vegetables but improves as it warms.

Flavor is piney and herbal hops along with soapy cornbread. Kind of creamy but a little cloying in the texture. The aftertaste has a bit of hop oil and more mint and vegetation. Definitely interesting but a little esoteric for me.

Pours a clear light gold, two finger soapy white head, spray of lace on the glass. Smell: pancake syrup, resin, grapefruit, orange peel, minty, pineapple-ish. Mildly boozy and a malt character that comes off as a bit oxidized. Taste: tangerine, pine, biscuit, booze, spearmint, honey note, spicy; medium bodied, juicy feel, drying and a bit latexy in the finish. Date stamp in a goofy place for a can; 2/28 at 5 weeks. Seems like a decent brew, but needs a better canning job (confirmed: 3rd out of 4 was much more enjoyable without the stale malt note, cleaner finish as well)

On tap at the JAX Beach brewpub.
Clear amber colored body with a very good white head and fine lacing.
Aroma: herbal and piney hops.
Flavor: Mildly bitter for style. Only hops but still good complexity. Less appealing aftertaste.
Feel: Medium body; lively medium carbonation.
Overall: a solid version of the style.

Fruit salad nose. On the palate, a nice mix of tropical notes, piney greens, white grape, and - strangely- vanilla. Creamy body, nice lacing. Estery, semi-sweet finish a la Lagunitas. Wish it was a tad dryer. Leaves a pithy, gummy bitterness lingering in your cheeks. There is some unique x-factor wafting throughout, like pineapple and lime, that keeps this one on the cusp of greatness.
