4.38/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a murky milky medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate bright orange + honey + burnt orange + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a large patch of very slightly mottled thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy citrus/orange, citrus/grapefruit, stone fruit/peach, stone fruit/apricot, tropical/pineapple, tropical/mango, and tropical/passionfruit hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + oat + honey malts with light to moderate amounts of honey sweetness.

T: Upfront there are just shy of moderate flavors of biscuit + oat + honey malts with light to moderate amounts of honey sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/orange, citrus/grapefruit, stone fruit/peach, stone fruit/apricot, tropical/pineapple, tropical/mango, and tropical/passionfruit hops which contribute a touch of bitterness which fades away almost instantly leaving moderate lingering tropical + citrus hops.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of soft/fluffiness mid-body with a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a pleasantly soft/fluffy mouthfeel. Enjoyable and really highlights the flavors and aromas of the galaxy hops. Delicious.

Can (no date, but fresh)

Cloudy pale orange with a creamy off-white head. Heavy creamy Galaxy hop aromas: passion fruit, OJ, peach, and pineapple. Flavors of peach, grapefruit, apricot, mango, and passion fruit. Clean and pretty crisp, doesn't wear on the palate with excessive cloying sweetness. Medium bodied, smooth and drinkable. A very good, super-juicy Galaxy showcase IPA.
