Such a treat when you can find this on tap. NEBCo would kill it with a packaged version of this beer. Galaxy hops lend a super clean citrus and floral note, very attractive in the glass with a finger of creamy off white head. Visibly carbonated in the glass and easy to take down by the gulp as a result. Hop bitterness is perfect for a pale ale, you get the clean expression that some malt heavy IPAs lose. Agitation is necessary to rejuvenate the aromas. You get a bit more of the malt character as it warms up, both in flavor and aroma.
