Color has a golden, murky appearance with foamy lacing. My first time isolating the Galaxy hop in an IPA. I find it to be rather dry but this IPA has some fruity passionfruit and considerable malt to balance it into a good offering. I still think the Galaxy alone is an acquired taste. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Draft. Amber beer with a cream head. Earth and light grapefruit aroma. Light grapefruit and earth flavor with malt. Medium bodied. Some bitterness. Light grapefruit and earth linger with light malt. Marc280 (52) - - JUN 3, 2015
Didn’t really pour with much head and what was there quickly faded. A deep golden colour and pours fairly cloudy. There is an unmistakable Galaxy hops aroma and on the first sip I found it too bitter, but after drinking a little more it seems better balanced. The bottle says is has a medium malt profile but I don’t really get this. Overall a good beer but not great. TedE (1326) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2015

330ml bottle into glass. Grape aroma, slightly white wine like. Translucent copper beer with solid white head. Slight spritzy mouthfeel. Clean bitter lemon finish. Good, not great. beer-yum (1708) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 13, 2015
Lovely aroma in cloudy amber liquid. The flag vour that follows is similarly excellent, showcases the single hop well, and is definitely worth another.

330ml bottle. Hazy amber with a thick dense white head. Aroma is big on passionfruit as befits the single use of Galaxy hops but there are also piney and grapefruit notes on top of a caramel malt base. Flavour has light malts and a firm lingering bitterness. Palate is light-medium bodied with average carbonation and oily mouthfeel. An education in Australian hops!. mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange yellow with a firm foamy white head. Very aromatic with loads of pine and passionfruit, some astringent grapefruit. The taste is a little disappointing however, as the aromas are not followed through in the flavour. The galaxy doesn’t quite add enough bitterness to make it a well balanced IPA, causing the taste to be largely malt flavour and fruit aroma driven. There is something evidently missing from this beer, but if it’s purpose was to showcase the properties of the galaxy hop, the brewers have succeeded Rangi (672) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2014
Straw yellow poor with a superb fluffy white head. Aroma of strong tropical and passion fruit. Crisp full flavour. Taste is nice and bitter. Great beer with some full on aroma distinctive to the galaxy hop.
