578. Blue Lobster Excess Galaxy
Dave at Blue Lobster makes some great beer and I really enjoy going down to Hampton and hanging out at the tasting room. Last time I was down I only had a few minutes and grabbed two 750s of the Excess Galaxy. At first I was not sure if this was a different beer than my previously reviewed Excess is Not Rebellion (Galaxy Edition) but after tasting it I was convinced it was a different beer. Just to confirm I contacted Dave and he did say it is a different beer, both double IPAs and both hopped entirely with Galaxy hops.
This beer pours a cloudy orange color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma had lots of citrus and pineapple and a bit of pine. Taste follows with a very tropical feel and very little bitterness which is surprising for a double IPA. If you like your DIPAs with lots of juicy fruits like I do you need to make your way to Hampton, NH and check out what Blue Lobster is brewing.
Pros: Lots of citrus/tropical fruits
Alcohol Content: 8.0% ABV
