Clown Shoes Galactica India Pale Ale

Crofty's Beer Blog

Hailing from Mercury Brewing Co in Ipswich Massachusetts comes this massive India Pale Ale. At 8% abv it’s pretty much a double or an imperial and the hopload suggests I’m not wrong.

Off the label: “Galactica, a hop staff wielding heroine, patrols in karate kick mode through the heavens. Her mission: cosmic combat to promote good beer. Dry hopped with Galaxy hops, a clean malt backbone enhances the dank and luscious IPA flavors.”

Pouring a nice golden to amber colour with a slightly subdued head, the aroma is off the charts. The galaxy is there in abundance, grapefruit, maybe some tropical.

Medium body, big resinous mouthfeel that just coats the back of your throat. Some pine to add to the citrus in hop flavour, with a background malt flavour to add some balance.

A great beer, easy 4 points.20140806-210206-75726262.jpg
