We have added generous amounts of whole hop flowers to this brew, both in the kettle and the conditioning tank. Galaxy, itís out of this world!

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.

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.

floydian1 (1155) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 16, 2015
330ml bottle. Hazy amber with a thick dense white head. Aroma is big on passionfruit as befits the single use of Galaxy hops but there are also piney and grapefruit notes on top of a caramel malt base. Flavour has light malts and a firm lingering bitterness. Palate is light-medium bodied with average carbonation and oily mouthfeel. An education in Australian hops!.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange yellow with a firm foamy white head. Very aromatic with loads of pine and passionfruit, some astringent grapefruit. The taste is a little disappointing however, as the aromas are not followed through in the flavour. The galaxy doesnít quite add enough bitterness to make it a well balanced IPA, causing the taste to be largely malt flavour and fruit aroma driven. There is something evidently missing from this beer, but if itís purpose was to showcase the properties of the galaxy hop, the brewers have succeeded

Rangi (637) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2014
Straw yellow poor with a superb fluffy white head. Aroma of strong tropical and passion fruit. Crisp full flavour. Taste is nice and bitter. Great beer with some full on aroma distinctive to the galaxy hop.

Bottle. Definitely the second best of the beer school pack. Very fruity, reminds me of stone and wood pacific ale (not surprisingly given the hop).

From a bottle. Pours orange with a lasting coarse white head, resin on the palate, crisp flavours with a very mild pepper aftertaste. Full bodied and strong, itís a great IPA and the galaxy hops are awesome.
