Share This Review

Galactica is an American Double IPA brewed by Clown Shoes Beer, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.

Appearance

The ale pours a mostly clear copper and is topped by a towering stack of rocky, cream-colored foam. The head shows excellent retention, leaving behind chunks of lace that collapse to a soapy collar.

Aroma

The aroma is piney and floral with hints of tropical fruit and booze.

Flavor

The palate begins with a taste of biscuit and transitions to a bite of light but indeterminate citrus. A bigger bite of piney hops is mellowed by sweet pineapple and caramel. Mild herbal hops linger on the tongue. As the beer warms a strong taste of alcohol asserts itself.

Mouthfeel

A relatively smooth feel has a medium body and moderate carbonation. The finish is dry with a warming alcohol sensation.

Overall

Galactica has a nice balance of hops, fruit, and caramel, but gets a little boozy as the beer warms. Otherwise, this brew makes for a nice Double IPA.
