Pours a hazed yellow color with a bigger white head.

Aromas on this are quite pungent, filling the air with ripe oranges, riesling grapes and fresh cut lime. Offers a skunky weed quality atop, together with ripe mango and a hint of bubblegum.

Has a lower carbonated, smooth mouthfeel with a nice, thick creaminess to it.

Tastes of sun ripened oranges, rich citrus and a light hint of toffee, together with a citraic, lighter hop bitterness. That bitterness compliments to the hops in a great way, enriched by a resinous dankness, which lets the fruits stand out in a great way. Finishes slightly herbal, fruity with luscious mango, ice bonbons and a prominent bitterness, defining the long and smooth aftertaste of this.

This is an incredibly complex and well nuanced beer, featuring a great and unforseen interplay of sweet and juicy fruits, bitter lime, dank herbs and ice bonbons. Atop of this, the beer features a fantastic, smooth and creamy mouthfeel, making this one of the greatest ne-ipas I‘ve ever had. Its strong headed, versatile and tastes great from the beginning till the end.

Pours a hazy orange with a finger of white head. Aroma is tropical, a bit dank, lightly sweet. Flavors are pretty intense yet rounded; maybe some mango, papaya, passionfruit, and pineapple. Finish is decidedly sweet which is probably what reminds me of passion fruit. Medium bodied with moderate plus carbonation. Overall a pretty tasty beer, I like the flavors but the sweetness tones down the drinkability.

L - pours an impenetrably thick yeasty yellow haze. Like a sandstorm in my glass. Usually some light makes it through a beer of this color, but not today.

S - fiery, zesty citrus rind. Lemon, orange, lime. Silky vanilla pineapple peeks through at the end to add a delightful sweetness. Bready and peppery.

T - gentle and dripping with hops. Slightly restrained taste compared to the nose, but chock full of pineapple and doughy goodness. Getting a really light orange juice acidity. I guess you could say pear as well as lime. Booze comes out the more it warms and piles on the zesty tang. Buckets of yeast and peach. Acidic bitterness tingles long after the sip.

F - soft and creamy. Glides on the tongue with the perfect viscous balance of velvet and fluff. Pretty nice.

O - this is definitely hopped. Extensively. Incredibly robust and smooth though. Handles those hops beautifully.

Poured from a 32 oz growler into a teku glass.

Pours an opaque golden yellow color with a half-finger of creamy white head. The head leaves a solid crown of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of lime, pineapple, and honeydew melon, followed by some mango and orange. There's some sweet bread and herbaceous notes on the back end. This is definitely a Galaxy beer.

The flavor is all about the peach and pineapple up front, then comes a huge wave of key lime pie, honeydew melon, mango, and lemon meringue. Finishes with some basil and pine and the absolute foggiest idea of doughy malt.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth, yet very slick and oily.

Overall, Galaxy is my favorite hop and it is utilized brilliantly in this beer. It has all the pineapple you come to expect from Southern Hemisphere hops, as well as that herbaceous, basil-like note that is both spicy and sweet. So damn good.
