3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber pour with a gorgeous fluffy, thick white head. Amazing retention. The aroma was very subdued and light. Earthy hops, some caramel malt, then some hay. Flavors were actually very pleasant. Light all around. Hints of malt, earthiness, corn husks and more hay. Light bitter finish. Super smooth and damn drinkable. Unique to see a hop such as this used in this capacity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear golden amber with a good sized soapy beige head. The aroma has light caramel malt, spice, wood, husky and a touch of cream. Medium body that’s lightly husky with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with earthy woody hops, pine, citrus zest and an overall roughness. There is some caramel malt as well, but it’s underneath and on the dry crackery side. The finish is very earthy and adds some spice. Good IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 330ml (Beer Planet)
Deep cleat amber color, good creamy off-white head, lace. Nose is very similar to normal Galena: earthy, woody, maybe a bit spicey and metallic too. Some fruity caramel in the background. Medium-bodied. Quite fruity sweet front with hints of strawberries. Good grapefruity bitterness, very citrusy finish. Long lingering bitterness. This hop has more dynamite than ordinary Galena and flavor is also better. Very good bittering hop.
