Pours a chalky orange/off-white with a one finger head. Smells of grapefruit, tropical citrus, and resin. Taste is a blast of juice (as described), tropical, smooth, super easy to drink with a bitter hop following. Galaxy? Nice thick mouthfeel. So well balanced, so juicy, so enjoyable. Wish there was more of this to go around... Please make it again.

Everything you'd expect from three of the best in the business. Damn shame it's a one-off because it's one of the best beers I've ever tasted.
The name says it all. Juicy, hoppy, smooth. Love everything about this.

Acquired in a trade, shout out to my plug! Pours a bright, opaque golden orange. One of the most beautiful beers I've ever had the pleasure of pouring. Smell is of vinous fruits, peach juice, slight alcohol note. Tastes like mango, apricot, some orange zest and grapefruit peel on the tongue. Nicely balanced and incredibly dry considering how big of a beer it is. Overall one of the more impressive collaborations I've been lucky enough to drink. Beast Coast vs Best Coast collide here and we all come out as winners. 4.75

Bottled 2/16/17. Enjoyed 2/25/17. Acquired in a trade for Alchemist Beer.

Look: Orange juice, pale, beige, dense, foamy head that lingers. (10/10)
Smell: I could smell this as soon as the cap was cracked. Super tropical aroma that fills the room. Sweet mangoes, papaya, passion fruit. (10/10)
Taste: Like eating a ripe passion fruit. This is like drinking a smoothie. Mango, Grapefruit, Orange, Weed. (10/10)
Feel: Bitter aftertaste of grapefruit. Alcohol is hidden extremely well. (10/10)
Overall: This lives up to all the expectations and hype. Reminds me of a King Julius. Tons of Dry hops with this one. Super juicy and drinkable. Wish this was year round. (10/10)

4.47/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Super fragrant, lots of hops with strong citrus, tropical notes, and slight resin - followed by a range of fruit flavors from the yeast.

A: Very light yellow with a white hue, totally opaque, with a very thinnish white head that quickly forms a ring around the glass.

T: Very hoppy – citrusy, tropical and slightly resinous, with fruity esters, soft, with a moderately light hop bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium bodied, though not viscous, soft with a juicy mouth-feel. The beer hides its high alcohol well.

O: Delicious; lots of tropical fruit notes very fragrant in the aroma and flavor. Definitely a big beer, juicy, but filling.

World class. Looks exactly like you would expect a collaboration between Cellarmaker, Trillium, and Other Half to look like. Super thick yellow/orange juice bomb. Ripe peach, apricot, with just a hint of grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Huge cantaloupe on the nose. Alcohol is supremely hidden; be careful with this one. Worth standing 2.5 hours in line for.
