Best Quote During Tasting
I don't know what you're doing with yours but I poop out of mine.
|Aroma - Similar to the regular Galaxy IPA the malt has notes of caramel and honey but accompanying the citrus hops,there is a spicy hop aroma as well.|
|Appearance - The beer pours a hazy gold with a thin, off-white head that leaves gentle lacing.|
|Flavor - This is quite sweet from the hops. There is definite honey character as well as some caramel from the malt. The hops are definitely dank and resinous and balance the beer out nicely.|
|Mouthfeel - Medium+ body, medium carbonation and a finish that lives just above semi-dry.|
Overall Impression - I don't believe it myself, but I think I prefer the regular version over the imperial. I know...beer geek blasphemy. There's something about this one that, while delicious, is just a little too sweet compared to the regular. Now, with that being said, I've ordered this beer on draft, purchased cans of it, and actually recommended it to fellow customers at the Craft Beer Cellar. It's a great beer and one that I'll continue to drink.
|Aroma - Hops produce some bright citrus notes and some slightly floral/grassy aromas. A bit of caramel sweetness and bread/biscuit notes from the malt.|
|Appearance - Hazy gold, verging on copper, with a thin beige head.|
|Flavor - Resinous and citrusy. Mainly notes of grapefruit, passion fruit, and orange. Honey and caramel sweetness from the malt add to the sweetness of the already present citrus notes.|
|Mouthfeel - Medium, verging on full bodied. Medium carbonation.|
|Overall Impression - I'm with Justin on this one. I think I might actually prefer the regular IPA. Although, the feeling might change depending on my mood. Both beers are great IPAs, and worth picking up for a bit of side-by-side tasting. You know, for science.|
