3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABv is 6.5%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of catty and fruity hops (grapefruit, tropical fruits). The flavour is distinctly hoppy with a solid bitterness throughout. Quite dry. Decent enough, but as with many other single hop beers I’ve tried, it becomes too one-dimensional. Galaxy is a good hop variety, but is probably even better when combined with other varieties, for more complexity. Very bitter aftertaste.
