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.

On tap at Craft Beer. Thanks to Tom and Ian for alerting me to the reappearance of this beer that I had thought I had missed for good! Clear gold beer, tidy white head. Light semi dry palate. Lightly bitter with pithy orange and peel acridness. No real tropical fruit here, maybe a trace of peach. Bitter aftertaste. Not bad at all but not the stunner I was hoping for and inevitably after much seeking out the reality was a slight let down.

harrisoni (13261) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
From mini cask at The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Clear gold colour with lasting bubbly ivory head. Wow now that is unusual. Bit of nettle bit of tea. Tropical fruits and stone fruit too. Really unusual finish like peppery hop and intense fruit. Fruit salad. Just completely floored me. Not many beers completely surprise me these days but this one did. Single hop and its a fruity peppery bitter stunner.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2012
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours a lightly cloudy gold with a very tight, white foam cap. Citrus, wet grass and piss in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with juicy cat pee, ripe tropical fruits, some straw and white sugar. Light bodied with soft, fine carbonation. Sweet, sticky-juicy finish, more pee, some citrus. Very nice beer. If the condition was a touch better this would be a knock-out.

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Queen Adelaide Northampton. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. A very inviting hoppy aroma with good sticky citrus notes. Tropical fruit in the mouth. Good lemony bitterness. Good length. A good hoppy beer which I made my Dad drink two days later and he loved.
