Bottle 33 cl. Slightly hazy golden with an off-white head leaving some lacework. Intense, greasy, herbal hop aroma. Ends distinctly bitter. I’m not convinced that Galaxy is all that suited as a single hop. 280412

Clear amber beer with a decent pale cream coloured head. Palate is semi soft and semi dry. A little hop skunk and bitter pine and then great fruits. Mango and fruit salad sweets - slightly sharp. Smooth finish with a mellow bitter linger. This is the flavour I heard described the first time I heard about Galaxy hops - but none of the beers really delivered it until now. Nice one Brewdog!

Bottle from Birratrovo, Como, bb 11.03.13, batch 069
Beautiful copper amber color, with medium sized head. Powerful hop aroma, fruity (apricots), piney, with strong manure. Very good toffee flavor with a biscuity soul; strong hopping, quite resiny and piney more than fruity. Vibrant final.
Excellent.
