3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
All 19 in this hop series are shared with my husband, Anton. It’s hazy bronze with a huge, creamy head. Initially notes of pine, that vanishes after a few moments leaving mild notes of fruit and caramel. The flavour us sweet with a dry bitterness and notes of fruit, citrus and caramel – as the aroma not very powerful, more bitter, and the finish is bone dry.

Oh look, i had the Galena and Super Galena hiding in my fridge. The straight Galena is a little more mild and grassy aroma. Nice peppery finish again. Smooth, easy to drink and digest hop profile.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Part of a fourth flight of four out of nineteen</IB> 4 days test. Very dense, thick-set yellow/orange head over clear orange-amber beer. Warm hops, mild hopoils; dusty finish, not very outspoken. Soft, mild bitternes (leaving the mouthfeel quite carbonated, which it is not really showing), tad woody. Finish however, is good aromatic hopoils. Medium bodied at least, and indeed feeling well-carbonaed. Slick, spiced in the finish. Decent, with less emphasis on the hop than other samples.
