Bottle. Golden and brownish beer with a very strong frothy white head. The aroma is very bitter with yeastiness. The flavour is very bitter with some good toffee and roasted flavours and some yeastiness. Overall a pretty good bitter and toffee flavoured beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Great looking IPA! The aroma is one sustained note of passionfruit - classic galaxy vibe. The taste is the same, but far more restrained. Not bitter at all! Definitely an easy going India Pale. Great finish though - doesn’t destroy the palate like most. Lovely IPA all round - fruity smell and flavour.

The hop bitterness is just right, a little spicey mixed with resin. The finish is just long enough to enjoy without overpowering any food you are eating. Aroma is freshly crushed herbs and where the malt is most noticeable. Great with chilli con carne or olive and cheese. Mouth felt clean but not too dry afterward.

Colour is a hazy yellow/brown. Has a thin white head with some lasting lacing, from the bottle there was some chunky sediment. Aroma is hoppy with sweet pine. Taste is gently bitter upfront with a citrus hop mid fllavour and a lasting sharp bitter aftertaste. Bitterness is balanced with a little caramel malt. Sharp, good.

Jado (591) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2012
From 330 ml bottle, poured a deep hazy amber with a tight white head. Pine and tropical fruit on the nose. Taste is surprisingly malt-driven, with some deep caramel flavours dominating up front. The hops kick in after that, with passionfruit, lemon and pine resin coming through. Not as aggressively bitter as I was expecting, but shows good hop characters. Good body with an oily texture. Nice long palate. Decent English-style IPA.

humlelala (1057) - DENMARK - OCT 14, 2012
(33 cl bottle from Kihoskh; No BBD but capsule says "5 18") Pours cloudy amber with big, white head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is a not too potent hoppy dominated by citrus fruits. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a fruity and not very bitter finish. Flavour is pretty mellow, mostly fruity and not very bitter. I got this to find out how Galaxy would work as a bittering hop in my homebrew and this one would suggest it won’t be very harsh.
