COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The keenly awaited follow-up to Rocket Science Galactic Ale is Halo of Saturn.
This Double IPA is dubbed ‘Hop Behemoth’ due to its somewhat excessive hopping regime of Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial & Galaxy hops. Six separate hop additions throughout the brewing process – including dry hopping – contribute to the result.
Brewed with a blend of specialty malts, Halo of Saturn delivers a combo of spicy orange zest, grapefruit, herbs and pine notes on the nose.
Beneath the ‘hop haze’ the palate is full and rich with hop bitterness beautifully balanced by weight from the massive grain bill and 8% ABV.

Draught at Harts Pub, The Rocks, Sydney (recommended). Deep amber-brown pour with ample off white head. Heaps of fruity hops on the nose (oranges, grapefruit) along with pine needles and herbs. Classy chewy malt backbone nicely balances out the resinous hop presence. Medium-full body with thickish texture and average carbonation. A standout DIPA well worth seeking out.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Lacks any real aroma but looks great. This is an average DIPA, you can appreciate the resinous hops and bitterness but the finish is rather disappointing. Not well balanced, it feels way too hopped without the backbone to balance it out.
