COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Single hopped Australian pale ale. A new beer fom the team here at Thornbridge “Galaxia”. The name might suggest it’s from the stars but it refers to this being a single hopped pale ale – a beer brewed to showcase the Australian hop variety Galaxy. Caolan Vaughan our resident antipodean says ”Using our fantastic pale ale recipe allows this stunning hop to transform this beer into a pleasurable experience in a glass - one for all hop lovers”. The Galaxy hop imparts striking beautiful aromas of mango, guava and grapefruit. While providing an intensely tingling bitter finish.

jmgreenuk (4230) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2012
Cask at the Rose Villa Tavern, Birmingham. Clear amber pour with a huge frothy white head and lots of broken lace. Hoppy, spicy aroma with a lovely smooth, dry hoppy flavour and an almost creamy texture. A really great ale for a session.

BrotherLogic (252) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Truly an explosion of hops in a glass. On handpull in the Sheffield Tap, poured into a half pint mini glass. Haze from the dry hopping, they must have used the freshest finest hops here and it shows.

Cask at the Euston Tap - 02/04/12. Slightly clouded gold with a thin white head. Fresh hoppy aromas, tropical fruits, a little citrus and straw. Tastes of mango, peaches, grapefruit and straw. Medium bodied, carbonation and a dry finish. Decent!

Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Slightly hazy golden/yellow. A sour citric note, then mellowing out nicely with a smooth, soft body. Reasonably good. (cask at the Craft Beer Co., June 2012)

thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2012
Very hopping, with light citrus. Oily, but too sweet. Good, but not great. Decent.

BeerViking (2425) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Cask at the Craft Beer Co, hazy gold with a lasting white head, citrus and green hops on the nose, astringent dry hoppy body with malty and peach notes. Very nice but lacking balance.

evergreen0199 (1995) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2012
Cask at Euston Tap, London. A golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Citrus, hoppy aroma. Tastes hoppy, fruity, malty. A decent enough Thornbridge ale.

shoulderbroken (1987) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 13, 2012
Cask at Euston Tap. Slightly cloudy blond/amber colour, with white creamy head. Aroma is slightly twiggy, pine hops, some lemon and a bit of stink. Taste is smooth and creamy, some citrus. Nice, but something weird in there too putting me off a bit. Not really getting all the tropical fruit to be honest.
