COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Galaxy hops come all the way from Australia. We feel bad for these little guys. They travel so far and we feel like they dont get their due respect so we decided to feature them in their own beer. Moonage Daydream is the next ale in our series of 100% single hopped beers. It is an extra pale ale with a simple malt bill of pale malt, vienna malt, and a touch of caraMunich. The galaxy hops present a complexity that is usually acheived by using multiple varieties. Aromas of orange peel, mango, unripe papaya, lemon peel and pine explode out of the glass and flavors of grapefruit, crackery malt, and lemongrass lace your tongue. Finally, a lingering grassy bitterness hangs on tight with a pear like fruitiness. Grab a pint and freakout in a Moonage Daydream. Oh Yeah!

In flight at brewery. Juicy tropical aroma. Lots of melon. A little on the sweet side. Solid pale ale but not my favourite.

mR_fr0g (10623) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Clouded yellow coloured pour with a lasting thin white head. Aroma is super juicy, juice fruit gum, Mellon, hint of mint, pez sweets. Flavour is composed of doughy bready grains, spicy hot, melon, apricot, lemon rind, juicy hop. Palate frothy carbonation, doughy, medium light, powdery finish. Spicy slightly dank hop lingers.

AdamChandler (4810) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Super hazy golden orange. Creamy head fades fast. Smells like the freshest fruit. So fruity and juicy and full of pineapple and mango. So the 100% galaxy does make this a bit to medicinal but fruit up front and cough drop finish.

AirForceHops (6698) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Sampled at Cellarmaker. Aroma is a nice display of Galaxy hop. Grassy, grapefruity and mango like. The flavor is mildly hoppy, nice grassyness up front, frutiy in the center with grapefruit and mango light again, maybe peach. Bitterness lingers. Body is crisp and refreshing with light pine hints in the back end.

jkwood04 (5369) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2014
750ml growler in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of fruity and citrusy and lightly resinous hops, some pale and light caramel malts, and hints of dough. Flavor the same with a great hoppiness. Average texture. A really good pale ale.

Draught at Cellarmaker. Hazy golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, floral hops, resin, peach, grass and a bit of pine. Bitter finish with citrus, peach, hops and grass. Excellent pale ale.

bmsulliv (219) - - AUG 6, 2014
Hazy yellow pale ale. Love the dry hop flavor but hops lingered a bit too much. They were shooting for a Alesmith style hoppy pale, but the hops and hazy body tipped the balance.
