Purchased at Flight Bottle Shoppe on 2020-09-24. There is a date on the bottom but it is smudge, making it unreadable.
Pours cloudy with a beautiful, three fingers of white foam. Clingy lacing that is thick and sporadic. Great retention.
Aroma of dank, grass and herbal. There is a definite green hop burn on the nose. Light citrus but hidden behind the grassiness.
Taste is similar to the nose but lacks the green hop burn, which is appreciated. Just lacks tropical but hints at citrus.
Medium or better mouthfeel, that almost is creamy. Light carbonation. Juicy but drying over time.
Galaxy hops the last few years just isn't the tropical bliss that it used to be. I find it to be grassy, herbal and, when overused, dank. That's exactly what I got in this beer. The citrus and tropical days for this hop seem to be gone as I assume it is stressed by the growing season. Enjoy!

New England IPA with 100% Galaxy hops. A tropical fruit and citrus wonder with a dank, earthy backbone.
