A golden IPA with a thin white head. In aroma, a crisp malt with a rather German hops signature. In mouth, a crisp malt with grassy rather German hops, a bit aggressive and drying the mouth. On tap at brewpub at Hawthorne, Oct. 7 2012.

Nitro version. Smooth with a bit of creaminess that doesn’t dent the hops. But if thus is what Galena tastes like then it is not one of my favorite hops.

Pale golden colour. The nose is lightly spicy with a bit of soft fruit. Minerally bitterness. Every time I taste this hop I think - is this the best you can do? It’s not bad, it’s just not all that good either
