one of the better hoppy beers these guys have put out so far. its hazy like the rest of them, brewed with oats and likely some wheat, creamy looking and feeling, with a frothy white head, lasting, active, and a lot lighter drinking than it looks like it should be. tons of galaxy in this one from what i understand, maybe even single hopped with it, it certainly smells that way. i get huge citrus and pineapple notes to the nose, a little wet grass, and some almost spicy bitterness, a little more vegetal and intense than i am used to from galaxy, but that may just be due to how much of it they used here. i love how the oats extend this, richen it up a little bit, and make it feel so soft, it wouldnt be nearly as special without them, good call on this mash bill! hops taste super fresh, not quite as gripping as they smell, but obviously australian, tropical fruity with a white wine grape essence as well, not as dry as some to finish, but i like this lingering. more bitter than expected too, its got some bite at the end. nice carbonation and body, plenty fresh, and cool label art on the cans. cerebral has upped their game with the hoppy stuff over the past few months!

Thanks, Nick!

Was psyched to get this from Nick on a recent trip to Colorado Springs. Pretty sure he picked it up the day I got it (Sept. 22). Enjoyed Strange Claw the night before, giving it a 3.90. Online, the description for this one was, “Brewed with both malted and flaked oats with immense amounts of Galaxy and a sprinkling of Amarillo.” Still not on the Galaxy train yet, but I do love me some Amarillo. Back of the can added Columbus. This should be interesting.

Poured a pale-to-gold hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy white head, similar to last night’s Strange Claw. More bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass than Strange Claw. Excellent layered spiderweb foamy lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled juice - orange, tangerine, grapefruit and pineapple - up front. I usually associate Amarillo with the orange family, so probably that leading the way for hops. Also Columbus (got that in Strange Claw too), but only a touch of Galaxy. Also orange blossom, orange creamscicle, lactose and hints of mango. Sugary orange in the can, probably some mango and guava too. (Smell - 4.00)

Hops came out to play in the taste, more balanced and noticeable than the nose. If I had to pick order I would say Amarillo, Columbus and Galaxy, but it seemed equally distributed. Also orange juice, tangerine peel, orange creamscicle, lactose, pineapple and boozy mango rind. Seems stronger than 6.8 pct. ABV. Think I got some oats late. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Bitter, dry finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This was a solid New England Style beer overall. Might have underrated it slightly. (Overall - 3.75)
