Madtree Galaxy High

This Imperial IPA has a whopping 10.2% ABV and 120 IBU's. It is from Madtree Brewing Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. Not surprisingly, it uses Galaxy hops, along with Topaz.

The beer pours a hazy orange golden and apricot. There is an inch of thick, foamy white to just off-white head. The aroma is overripe melons, and tropical fruit, passion fruit and mango skins. It is sweet and fruity, yet tangy. The taste follows the aromas, it is very big and sweet. However, the finish is mostly dry, with a moderate bitterness, tempered only by the big sweetness. The alcohol warms and the end is a bit spicy. The beer drinks full, smooth, round, with a subtle tingling of carbonation.
