    Pours cloudy with an inch of foam. Short lived retention. Not much lacing what little foam clings mostly cedes back.

    Aroma of citrus, touches of peach. Clean sweetness. Light resin.

    Taste falls a bit flat. There is the citrus from the aroma, a burst of sweetness and resin in the middle but not much else.

    Bright carbonation and medium body. Drying.

    Interesting beer that is good. Based on the price I would expect more from this beer. It is an average beer. I would have it again but there is bunch out there I would grab, especially based on the price point. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • When hundreds or thousands of galaxies are congressed together in one thicket of the universe, it’s called a Galactic Cluster. When Cigar City Brewing and Upland Brewing Co. brew an American IPA with guava and peach and dry-hop it with Galaxy hops, it’s called Galactic Cluster. Any questions?

    Peach, kiwi, guava and clementine aromas meld and meet soft apple-like esters on the nose, while a palate of orange peel, lime leaf and vibrant peach and guava is supported by a cracker-like malt flavor and a smooth, full mouthfeel.
