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!

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

mattyhennessy (348) - 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 doesn’t 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 it’s purpose was to showcase the properties of the galaxy hop, the brewers have succeeded

Rangi (605) - 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).

StevieT (740) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2014
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, it’s a great IPA and the galaxy hops are awesome.

varanid99 (560) - 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 (7022) - 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 (103) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a Murky Orange, similar to other single hop ipa’s 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
