look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Crowler from the brewery poured into a nonic pint glass.
A-Straight juice with a thick finger of dense white head. Looks like grapefruit juice with a frothy head.
S-Passionfruit, orange, grapefruit. I guess that is what an all galaxy ipa smells like. Lovely hop.
T-Hops rule the taste. Same as in the aroma. Creamy malt presence, nothing toasted. Some vapory alcohol fires off as well. Some nice flavors here but I think I'd prefer with some different varietals to give this a bit more complexity.
M-A very soft mouthfeel, assume there is a fair amount of oats in here.
O-Out of this world-galaxy that is. Extremely hazy and juicy with lots of aroma. Love the mouthfeel, clean up the vapory alcohols and you got something special.

I didn’t know they could make a beer with more orange juice than the Raindrops. A nice NE IPA style, that is better than raindrops.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a crowler on February 8, 2019. Brewed with Galaxy hops. Look is hazy golden orange with a white head and lingering lacing. Smell is sweetened tropical fruit. Taste is juicy with notes of pineapple, papaya, citrus, mango and a hint of pine. Feel is medium in body with a soft finish.

Easily their best IPA on draft when i went. This has the same great dry hop aroma and flavor of the others, but really follows through with a super thick body that meets the classic NEIPA style. Very low IBU. Def worth trying

On tap at grizzly’s, into a chalice. Pours a chalky milky orange with a thin white head. Nose has all kinds of citrus and maybe some other tropical fruit in there too...papaya maybe. Taste follows....I don’t get much character from the malts. Nice mouthful, soft, juicy, fairly substantial body. Finish comes to a nice crisp point, while staying juicy.

Good representation of Galaxy hops. Hazy, fruity, some pleasant bitterness.
