Pint can dated 09/19/18 - poured into a Stella pint goblet at 42F.

Pours a milky pale blond, with a finger of sticky fluffy white head that gently recedes, leaving a permanent film cap and collar with lace.

Nose is big passionfruit, pineapple and papaya up front. A little bit of ripe mango. Some kiwi. A little bit of earthy dank. Floral.

Palate is grassy, herbaceous, slightly piney hops with vague floral notes here and there. There is a juiciness that plays well with that, and provides a fresh balance to the dankness. For such a hazy beer, there isn't a whole lot of malt character going on though. Very light and delicate - super bone dry with a fairly pronounced bitterness that pops up early and stays strong well into the finish. I'm beginning to think Galaxy is an especially bitter variety of hop, because everything Galaxy I've had has had a fair bitterness to it. The bitterness further pronounces the dryness of this one.

Mouthfeel is shockingly light. Not quite watery, but definitely thin and crisp. This could honestly be a hot summer day drinker. Very drinkable. No fluffy, creamy, or pillowy mouthfeel here. Thin, light, crisp, and very well carbonated.

Overall, this is a very good IPA. It's not my favorite Tired Hands offering, but the bar is set high with them. I would reach for this on a hot summer day, and even buy a 4 pack if I was in the mood for something light and crisp. Almost more of a session IPA, or a hoppy pale ale. I didn't realize how low the ABV was. Been drinking a lot of doubles lately. This is good.

Thank you Jeremy for this can. Cheers!

Another amazing one that needs to be on regular rotation. I know I am crazy for this, but I hope they start canning more beers like these more often and less milkshakes.

super pithy and floral, herbaceous and green, mint, grassy, grapefruit peel and lemon, white gummy bear and fleeting peachy note. smack of subtle bitterness on the finish makes this one soooo crushable. added fermentables make this one sooo soft, just delicious stuff!

Can from a recent swap...murky juice in the looks dept. Nose is galaxy...with a kick. Taste is the same. I'm admittedly not a huge galaxy fan, but this beer i dig. Really nice take on the hop. The oats and wheat seem to make it more palatable for me. Nice one
