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!

Jado (516) - 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 (968) - 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.

ando1712 (11) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2012
Nicley aromatic, citrus & Passionfruit. Clear. small but lasting head. Obviously very hoppy as advertised but there’s a little malt in there as well to keep things nice. Very easy to drink, looks good, tastes & smells good. Well made, but lacks the killer punch of say a Feral Hop Hog.

goatwhisperer (19) - - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle from Purvis Cellars poured into a tulip glass. Medium pour produced one finger of tight foamy head with decent retention and poor lacing. Cloudy golden colour. Tropical aroma, namely passionfruit, fresh apple juice, pine, guava, pear and PVA glue. Aroma is by far the best part of this beer however these characteristics are not necessarily as present in the taste. Bitterness overwhelms the other flavours which are mostly comprised of kiwi and honey dew with a slight malt backbone. Thin, watery, and astringent mouthfeel with low carbonation for this style.
