On tap.

Appearance - Cloudy, pale gold, with a thick white head that leaves nice lacing.

Aroma - Strong notes of fruit... Pineapple juice, and a hint of onion/garlic. Pine needle?

Taste - Grapefruit juice. Subtle pineapple juice and a hint of pine.

Mouthfeel - Clean, fresh, hoppy, sticky, with a bitter finish. There is a bit too much carbonation, but as it settles, it works well.

Overall - Good use of Galaxy hops. Very balanced. Drinkable double IPA without completely wrecking your palate.

No head really but this one was bottles for me from the tap real ease a couple weeks ago. Little lacing, hazy golden body. Aroma is very good with very much a tangerine citrus dominant nose and an underlying woody and musty presence in this 100% galaxy hopped beer. Flavor follows with more strong and tart citrus almost so tart the booze are accentuated. The pale malt base is pretty much overwhelmed. The body is medium and the carbonation has dwindled from the original. Overall this is an excellent single hopped ipa.
