RothBeer Távoli Galaxis

RothBeer was one of the brewers I wasn't going to miss a chance sampling at the Sörfesztivál in Budapest. The guy working the booth was friendly and knowledgeable which only helped to hype me up a bit more. Távoli Galaxis (Faraway Galaxy) was an obvious choice for me as it is one of their most award winning beers. This Galaxy was a pretty orange with an appealing white head. A very fruity aroma with a mix of tropical and citrus fruits climbed up my nose. The aroma set up the flavor which had a great balance of citrus, funk and pine. It was one of the more American tasting IPAs I had while in Europe and made the prospect of moving back to the USA in a few weeks not seem so bad. While not completely amazing this was still probably the best beer I had at the festival. It made me regret not spending more time at their booth.

Overall: 8/10

Hi, I'm Colin, I love a good hoppy IPA, but I can find immense enjoyment in a solid session beer, imperial stout, quadrupel or a nostalgic beer from my past.
