3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flavoursome, peachy keen IPA. Might be better with a bit more alcoholic oomph. Copper with a short head. Oodles of white peach on the nose - very nice if thatís your bag. Light caramel notes, passionifruit and mango. Slightly brittle mouthfeel but gets away with it. Tastes like a superior Pacific Ale, which is not a huge recommendation in my book. Summer-fruit salad. Didnít seem that bitter, considering BR rates the hop profile as 9 out of 10. Slightly underwhelming. Iím just not enthusiastic about Galaxy as a stand-alone hop.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of nice tropical zest, a hint of earth, and hops citrus notes. Taste is less resinous, but most of the same tones, a hint of the malty backbone. Bittersweet finish, clean but thick, not bad.

Bottle poured a hazy amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of caramel, grapefruit, light orange zest and a hint of tropucal fruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, grapefruit and pine with a crisp dry bitter lingering earthy finish.

Bottle from City Beer. Pours light amber with a thick white head and a floral aroma. There is a fairly bitter caramel malt flavor with a more bitter finish. Not real balanced, but lots of flavor for relatively low abv.

Color has a golden, murky appearance with foamy lacing. My first time isolating the Galaxy hop in an IPA. I find it to be rather dry but this IPA has some fruity passionfruit and considerable malt to balance it into a good offering. I still think the Galaxy alone is an acquired taste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Didnít really pour with much head and what was there quickly faded. A deep golden colour and pours fairly cloudy. There is an unmistakable Galaxy hops aroma and on the first sip I found it too bitter, but after drinking a little more it seems better balanced. The bottle says is has a medium malt profile but I donít really get this. Overall a good beer but not great.

Lovely aroma in cloudy amber liquid. The flag vour that follows is similarly excellent, showcases the single hop well, and is definitely worth another.
