Well it’s creamy and it’s Galaxy soooo ya! ;) pours a turbid bright straw yellow with white head. Nose is tropical with light herbal and floral qualities. Taste of tropical fruit notes. Pineapple, mango and papaya. Pith citrus and light stone fruit as well. Light herbal quality as it warms. Fairly balanced with sweet doughy malt shining through. Creamy rich body with a hoppy pithy finish.

Space Hallucinations pours a thick and creamy honey orange color with a 1-finger off white complex head. A very attractive smell with strong fruits, both tropical and citrus including ripe mango, pineapple, stone fruit, papaya and passion fruit with a hint of earthiness and pine. The taste is “oh so smooth” with a nice orange, grapefruit flavor with a fruit puree included. It's very creamy with a candied sweetness and that hint of pine bitterness.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours cloudy with a honeyed hue and a one finger head; splashy lacing

Smell: Pineapple, mango, orange, kiwi and passionfruit tones

Taste: Pineapple and mango forward, with orange flavors building; through the middle a hint of kiwi emerges and passionfruit carries the palate through the swallow; moderately high bitterness and some burn from the high ABV in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; somewhat creamy with warmth in the gullet

Overall: A powerful showcase for Galaxy hops

Thanks, thirsty4beer, for the opportunity

Cloudy amber color with an almond color and creamy two finger head. Slight dank grass and herb in the smell along with an Asian like fruit and spice aroma. Big roasted pineapple and peach flavors with burnt orange rind, spice, resin, and sweetened vanilla cream. Full body feel with a very creamy texture. The big fruit flavors are very well balanced with the lingering hop bitterness.

16 oz can sent from Beerchaeology. I'll say it right now, this beer is absolutely incredible.

Starts off with one of the haziest, juiciest pours I've ever seen. Thin 1/2 finger of head in my Crane Snifter.

Aroma is intensely herbal with strong fruits of banana, pear, peach, mango, dried apricot, papaya, and spice.

Flavor likewise blows me away. It's like orange juice, grapefruit juice, and mango puree all got drunk and had a beer baby. Tons of OJ and grapefruit juice, mango, papaya, apricot, green banana, pear, and a slight lemongrass and bright herbaceousness on the finish.

Feel is fucking dead on perfect. Perfect CO2 burn, really nice slickness, and the resins get out of the way quickly but make their presence known. Nice mild alcohol burn, well hidden at 10.5%.

Overall, mind blown. This beer is fucking art. I knew Other Half made good beers, (this is my first) but I had no idea what was in store for me once I cracked that can. Holy shit.

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

This smells like super ripe mango and pineapple, with some passionfruit, weed, and pine.

You would have no idea that this is 10.5% ABV- it's crazy. It's just smooth juicy goodness here- with very little bitterness- just a hint of dank greenness. The fruit flavor is mostly creamy mango and candied pineapple. There's not much in the way of malt character.

This is medium bodied, surprisingly thick and creamy, as I didn't know this was such high ABV when I started drinking it.

This is yet another delightful IPA from one of the best producers of the haze in the country.

Not much to say except this is smooth, pours super cloudy and tastes like tropical fruit juice. Only complaint is the 10.5% is noticeable in the sweetness. Otherwise, it’s a Galaxy lovers dream

16 oz can, dated 6/13/18, poured into a teku

A- A hazy golden orange with a two finger white head.

S- Bright citrus, some lime zest, pineapple, touch of sweet malts, dank.

T- Oranges, some citrus zest, pineapples, some malt sweetness, somewhat dank.

M- Smooth, medium to full body.

O- A big and fairly drinkable 10.5% IIPA, I like it but feel it would be better dailed back some on the ABV/malt bill.
