look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured on draft in a Belgian Tulip at the Mint Gastropub in Bethlehem, PA.

Pours a cloudy, straw yellow color with a white foamy head that dissipates at a medium pace. Beautiful lacing is present all around the glass as I imbibe.

Smells of fresh hay or straw, and interestingly enough, a little flour character on the finish.

Tastes of cucumber peel, lemon zest, fresh hops (galaxy?).

Mouthfeel is very slick on my tongue with an awesome effervescentness going on. A very pleasant bitterness is present.

This beer does not suck. In fact, it's pretty incredible. Almost like a Farmhouse style IPA. Unreal

Cheers,
Wade

On tap at Tired Hands Brewing in Ardmore, PA.

This one pours a very hazy light orange, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells pretty strongly of peach, with some pine and grass, guava and passionfruit.

This yatsss basically the same- it’s got that fresh-squeezed juiciness a lot of Tired Hands beers have. The dominant fruit flavor is definitely peach, with a slight grassy bitterness on the finish. It seems exotically tropical- some passionfruit and guava, a bit of pink grapefruit, etc.

This is light bodied, clean and creamy, with a normal level of carbonation.

I’m basically a slut for Galaxy. This is really nice.

This was a ridiculous galaxy hopped single IPA right here. Dripping with mango, orange, and peach. So juicy and tasty, with just enough resinous bitterness to keep it interesting and drinkable. One of the better IPAs I've had from Tired Hands recently.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Opaque corn milk yellow, nearing tan, with a thick and bright soft white foam leaving camouflage lace all over the glass.

The aroma is dank and spicy as the yeast gives off a nearly vinegar-esque sting, but not in the same way a sour might, before it comes back down to earth with pine resin and white and red pepper.

Taste is tangy yet smooth, featuring oats with vanilla cream, shortbread and a hint lemon, as pine bark and mint accent.

This is a frothy beer with a round, pillowy soft body, finishing semi-dry.

Turbid and hazy pale straw. Like crazy levels of haze. There's little color to speak of, borderline white at the bottom of the glass, and it's ugly. Spotty lacing redeems it a little bit.

Liquid galaxy nose. Lots of tropical fruit with special emphasis on mango.

Tropical fruit again in the flavor, but it's not bright like a lot of their other beers. Grainy and a little mineraly. Low-key bitterness on the finish.

Medium body. Low carb and a little prickly.

Better than a lot of IPAs that I've had, but this beer is the definition of one dimensional and downright boring to drink.

Mango juice, earthy hops, and drops of pineapple. Dank greens, pine sap, and eucalyptus. Soft caramel and honey maltiness.

Overall
If you want to know what Galaxy hops are capable of achieve: this. Excellent stuff!
