Looks amazing, doesn't smell great. Up front the taste doesn't wow me. But as it warms the back end and aftertaste are amazing. Just about competes with anything like this style on the market. Delicious. Surprised this is at an 86.

Good shit.

This has a lovely nose that suggests galaxy, but everything else is lacking - almost no flavor to speak of, a sort of cigarette butt bitterness. It's a flat yellow, with a faint head, a soft drinkable build. I think this beer really sucks.

I wonder if there isn't another strain of Galaxy out there, as this is the second MA 'galaxy' ale I've had that really suffered for having no particular flavor, but managing a lovely fruity nose.

Glorious? Yes. Light and refeshinging more than I typically like but nice follow up to Pieces of 8. Fruity fo sure, so wizards will prefer it in mid summer. Hiking to a fine peak, well this will be a fine reward even if out of state for Vermont ;-). Enjoy mortals.

Pours a hazy whitish blonde hue into my glass. Light and airy with a strong dose of citrus in the nose. Guava and passionfruit come to mind. Excellent doughy malt base. Nice bitter finish. A good sense of balance and well worth a shot.

This is a lovely straw colored pale ale with lots of drinkability. It is very similar to a NEIPA so I am not sure why a pale ale, but its pours a very light but still opaque straw gold and has nice frothy white head which really bring the pleasant tropical aromas right to you. The first impression is a very crisp backbone with a creamy lactose mouthfeel and mouth puckering grapefruit and hints of kiwi and maybe a little pineapple too.
This is a very quaffable if not perfect beer. Not a first choice for me in this type of beer but it is a solid backup as it is easy to find here in the Boston area. As other reviews have pointed out, the finish is just a tad flat. In my experience, this happens when the beer is above a certain temperature. Best served ice cold and if you sip you might not like the second half as well as the first. An insulated drinking vessel solves the problem.

A great tasting golden “Galaxy Pale Ale”, not too hot at 6.5%. My first beer from Lord Hobo. This beer makes me want to check out the others from this brewery!

As I prefer the juicy NE style IPAs, this one was not my favorite. While saying that, it is a drinkable beer and if offered from a friend I would gladly drink it.

Looks the part of a modern Pale Ale - cloudy orange-ish, smells juicy too. 1st few sips are good, may think we have a winner here. But cumulatively I get a pineapple taste building up. I know they don't use any juice, but the flavor is unmistakable. Has to be a by-product of the house yeast, as I get the same in other LH beers. Will try again, but not too soon.

16 oz can, canned 4/6/18. Pours very hazy orange yellow with a medium frothy white head that retains fairly well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is lots of sweet fruit with some stinky resiny hops in the background.

The flavor is sweet soapy wheat malts with big fruity resiny hops. The mouthfeel is a little light and watery.

Overall, an OK NE pale ale.

Had on tap. Pours hazy, light yellow in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is tangerine, orange, and grapefruit rind. Sweet start with a big bitter finish, medium bodied and carbonation. Makes for a good and solid New England style ipa. Is not as juicy as some of those from other breweries. However, still a treat to drink.
