BEER INFO

Brewed by:
MadTree Brewing
Ohio, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
At Galaxy High, the beer has 120 IBUs, 10.2% ABV yet finishes nice and dry. Join two Australian hops as you encounter a crazy collection of tropical and dank flavors throughout this Imperial IPA. It’s big on your palate… disruptive even. Think 'trophic cascades' disruptive.

Got this as an extra in a recent trade. Was intrigued because I LOVE Galaxy hops. This is a damn good beer. A shade below the Trilliums, Treehouses and Hills of the world but still really good! The galaxy hops do distinguish themselves though I wish they were a little bigger of a star here. Either way, would drink it anytime!

A- A very turbid pour with a one finger tan head.
S- Citrusy. Orange peel. Great hop presence.
T- Big, boozy-ish, hop bomb. Piney and resiny.
M- Light to medium body and costs the mouth.
D- It is definitely big, but a very flavorful sipper.

12 oz can. Pours hazy orange, finger white head, coating pitted lace. Sweet orange peel n fruity aroma. Big juicy sweet taste with citrus peel n floral hops, pine sap, lemon. Lots of flavor in this imperial IPA, alcohol hidden. Thin to medium oily slick mouthfeel. Very nice brew, slow sipper.

By far the best Imperial IPA I have had. The entire "high" series by madtree is legit. Strong citrus smell, perfect balance of the galaxy hops with the malt to give a rich color. super smooth
