This beer was brewed last month and received 10 days of dry hopping followed by an extensive 3 day cold crashing at 38 degrees. I kegged this and allowed to carbonate slowly (no keg agitation / shaking) over the course of 4 days at 20PSI. The smell is better than the taste but overall, this beer came out very nice!
T – Taste has a Heady Topper maltiness to it and at 8%, that’s to be expected. The finish has a lingering residual malt sweetness. Citra and oranges are obviously most dominant but there’s that small level of dank crusty pine needle that I got in the Galaxy beer that shouldn’t be here. I need to figure out where I went wrong on that.
M – Nearly flat ginger-ale carbonation on the mouth swish. Pretty full body with a hint of tongue tingling.
O – Aside from the dank pine needle finish, it’s a fantastic beer. For that alone, I would probably give this a 3.5…without that nastiness, it would be a 4/5 beer. I’ll certainly attempt this beer again with less fruit juice or maybe none at all.
