Brewery: Equilibrium Brewery x Widowmaker Brewing
Style: New England / Hazy Double IPA
Brewer Description: (from Untappd) Astral Projection into Multiple Galaxies is our first collaboration with our friends from Widowmaker Brewing. We set out to have an out of body experience with mind, body, and soul and travel into multiple galaxies by using a hop combination of Galaxy, Strata, and Apollo Hops. Astral Projections into Multiple Galaxies pours milky yellow with aromas of passionfruit creamsicles, lemongrass, and pineapple and a cosmic flavor profile of mango, orange sherbet, dank passionfruit, grapefruit, and lime PEZ candy with an assorted melon salad #EQjuice finish that will mentally transport you to the galaxies above.

Intro: A 1 pint can, with no clear canned on or best before date. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy milky orange colour with a one finger white head that had excellent retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Creamsicle, mango, passionfruit, pineapple, vanilla.
Taste: Juicy, mango, passionfruit, pineapple, orange pith, grapefruit, lime soda, with a lasting bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: Loved the creamsicle aroma, and too bad it wasn’t replicated in the taste as the citrus bitterness was quite obvious. However, it was still enjoyable and easy to drink despite not heading in the direction I hoped it would after my first whiff.
