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, its out of this world!

There might be one hop but the Cascade has a kick. Grassy first on the nostrils but has taste of orange. Hops give it nice edge. Grapefruit and malt pushing its way through. A sugar burst 3/4 through. Lot of remembrance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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, its a great IPA and the galaxy hops are awesome.

varanid99 (491) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2014
Orange gold pour, thin head. pine and tropical fruit aromas. Taste is mild pine, mango, malt. Easy drinking, so far my favorite of their single hop IPAs

motelpogo (6579) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 13, 2014
bottle - part of a 4 pack of australian hopped beers. pale amber with a thin white head; loads of tropical fruit in the aroma, predominantly mango and some pine forest dirt; some juicy fruit sweetness, modest bitterness. pretty enjoyable as with the others in the series

Kurtos (100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a Murky Orange, similar to other single hop ipas in this series. Aroma. Pine needle aroma along with some tropical fruits. Taste. Similar to aroma, piney taste with some slight tropical flavours and very little bitterness. Overall. Normally i like a bit more bitterness in an ipa, but the lack of that seems to work in this beer.

Galaxy, galaxy, galaxy. Typical tropical galaxy aroma and flavour, but with the added addition of a good malt base. Nicely balanced.

Tight white head on amber body. Pine needle aroma. Soft fruit bitterness. Clean finish of balanced bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (112) - 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.
