Hey guys, this one just became available to drink and am stoked on how it turned out! So much so, I thought I'd share(my first time), any feedback is welcome.

This brew has really nice bitterness and is a bit sweeter then your average IPA, but I think that pairs nicely with the lower ABV(4%), perfect session IPA. Aroma is sweet, with lots of passion-fruit notes from the galaxy hops and and a bit of orange, if you look for it. I reckon flavor is well rounded and finishes nicely. Mouth feel is a bit 'watery' and head lacked a little, but overall really happy!
