COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our single hop IPA highlights the character of a locally grown hop variety, Galaxy.

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

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle 330ml @Beer Hunters
Dark amber color, steady beige head. Fruity, woody aroma, evident Galaxy. Light to medium bodied. Citrusy, fruity, but a bit dry flavor. Slightly one-dimensional (as it is a single hop beer!) but decent drink.

bgb1991 (120) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2013
Brown sugar and tropical fruit aroma. Not much head out of the bottle. I like the lightness of the fruit characters but a bit too sweet of a malt body. Not enough lingering bitterness.

mjs (4821) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2013
(Bottle, 0.33 l - Single Hop Series - 4.8 % ABV, at Punavuoren Ahven, 20131025) The beer poured amber and quite clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, spices, mild herbalness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, spices, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty and bitter. A balanced but a bit musty beer.

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
33 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s Freehouse, Tampere.
Pours clear golden-copper color with a small head. Aroma is quite fruity and hoppy, some orange zest and caramel malts also. Flavour is a bit too malty for my taste, caramel, resinous hops and hay, mild nuts and goose berries on the finish. Bitter malty palate. Nice aroma but too malty and nutty taste.

FatPhil (9646) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 3, 2013
330ml bottle (Hilpea Hauki, Helsinki)
Slightly hazy orange, tight bready head. Huge tropical fruit aroma, peach and melon. some gingery caramel too. Floral body, perfumey retronasals. Quite easy drinker, sweetish malts, tons of tropical fruit. Fades a bit quickly, sweetish malts, but hops disappear quickly, almost no bitterness. A bit too easy, a bit too throwaway.

Bottle from Plonk. Bright mid-amber, tight white head, fruity, citrusy, piney hops, typical Galaxy, well balanced with sugary sweetness, slightly grainy, medium bitterness, medium body with long bitter finish. Very nice.
