Very Good
Notes: Crushable Galaxy IPA. Brewed with oats and red winter wheat. Hopped intensely with Galaxy and lightly with Simcoe (surprise!). Juicy and intense...

I really enjoyed this beer. Great fragrances of pineapples, oranges, stone fruits and ganja and not so great ones like cat piss and diesel. A very nice interplay here between the G&S hops leads to a very refreshing, crispy albeit quaffable brew. The guys at TH are on to something here (After having both this and Foliage, I will be making the trek from MD). Bravo.

The nose is filled with more scents from the Galaxy hops as I sense honeysuckle, oranges, tangerines, pineapple and tropical fruit. The flavors do not follow suit but set up in a very original package. It starts a bit resiny and then presents a honey sweetness and apricot. Through the middle I taste cocoa butter and some tropical fruits, maybe even passion fruit, before the taste dies off abruptly. Nice showcase of the different hops, I just wished the flavors had followed through a bit more.

Pungent, citrusy, herbal and tropical- the unmistakable character of Galaxy and Simcoe hops play out on the driest of malt bases for complete display of those beautiful hop cones- such an aromatic punch to awaken the dead.

Corpse Finder is bright straw and gold with a wisping swath of foam. From which pulls the vibrant aromatics that start with white grapefruit, tangy orange, pineapple, lemon and white grape. Even with the short sweetness of faint honey and light bread, its malty balance is no match for the herbal character of chive, garlic, cannabis and tomcat.

Dry light bread is all that remains after the ale sheds nearly all of its malt sweetness and much of its body. Seeming vivid with strongly carbonated hop tea, the fruity, herbaceous and grassy taste of hops stand out even more but perhaps leaving the bitterness somewhat unsupported.

Bone dry to finish, the beer takes on an acute bitterness that's laced with lupulin acidity, seeming winey, lemony and sassafras to close. With such absolute dryness, the beer's racing carbonation exits quickly and thins the beer considerably- leaving remnants of hop flavor behind.
