COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The newest member of our Single Hop Series of IPAs features the Australian hop varietal – Galaxy! This is the second Australian hop we’ve used. Nelson Sauvin Single Hop IPA was released in early 2012, and turned out to be a very interesting and well-received IPA. Like other Australian varietals, Galaxy is creating quite a buzz with hop heads worldwide.

Right up there with Citra and Mosaic as one of the pungent citrusy varietals that can stand on its own. Lots of mellow sweetness at the end of this one. Courtesy of Dave in 2015.

Sampled at the St. Louis Brews club meeting, thanks for sharing! This brown bomber bottle was cellared well since 2013, and was still surprisingly hoppy and smooth, only somewhat oxidized and not necessarily in a bad way. Hazy orange amber, weak white foam, lots of lace. Strong malty backbone, biscuity with a little caramel sweetness. Focus squarely on the intense hops: pine resin, bitter orange peel, black currant, melon, mango. Good and fruity. Medium body and carbonation, pleasant aftertaste, well-crafted for sure.

I like the dry palate but that's about it. That's two Hermitage IPAs I've had and they're just too malty and earthy which is baffling coming from CA. Also there's no aroma. Dry hopping would help a ton.

Dark Brownish Amber, Gushing Out Of A Bottle and Ten You Are Able To Pour It, Settles For A Head That Is Slightly Above Average. It Does Not Last And Diminishes to A Thin Ring Leaving Light Spotty Lacing. Muted Strange Hop Aroma. Tastes A Lot Better. Sweet Malt, Grapefruit, Resin, Pine Hop. Lasting and Pleasant Bitter Hop Aftertaste. Medium Body, Oily. Hides High ABV Well. Enjoyed It. Nice. Recommended...

Bottle. The look is hazy, beige colored head, and brick orange in color. The smell is resiney, grass, fruit, caramel, and pineapple. The taste is is hops, fruit, bitter, and decent but not great.

Aroma is intense with apricot and grapefruit. The galaxy hop has an interesting flavor profile: dry, slightly tangy, but features a lot of pine resin. Great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It poured a clear amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma was notes of citrus, tropical fruit and some hoppiness. The taste was much the same, with a little sweetness and medium bitterness. Very nice.
