Our Hop Rocket infuses the character of Australian grown Galaxy Hops into an American Pale Ale, giving a unique tropical, almost melon aroma in a classic American style.

SG111 (1822) - New York, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Best by 06/11/17. Pours filtered honey orange, off white head. Aroma is grass, lemon, pine, orange, grapefruit rind, lemongrass, lemondrop. Fairly lemongrass heavy. Clove, maybe melon. I know those don’t go together, but here we are. Flavor is malty biscuit, lemon rind, spot of clove, very heavy aspirin astringency. That’s unfortunate. Wow, that heavy heavy bitter finish destroys this one. It’s really pleasant up front, but that is horrendously bitter.

16 oz can. BB 08/18/16. Thanks Jere!
Cloudy golden color with a small white head. Sweetish fruity hops, moderate bitterness and some malt in the aroma. Quite fresh even if it’s 6 months past BB date. The flavor is pungent hops, candies, harsh bitterness and dryish malt.

Lots of hop flavor. Average aroma. Hop mix is excellent. Their $1.99 per 12 ounce can is competitive in MI.

50 cl can @ Timo A. BBE 18.08.2016
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with mandarin and orange, some piney notes and citrus. Flavor is quite bitter, citric fruity, grapefruits, malty notes and gooseberries. Doesn’t feel as old as it is, decent.

Can to glass. Pours a clear copper-gold with massive white head and plenty of patterns down. Melon aroma is assertive and solid. Flavor is more herbal.

ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Pint can from Keg Liquors; drink by date of 1/30/17. Aroma: Moderate citrus with melon and punch bowl-like fruit in near balance; a lesser caramel malt backing stays predictably subtle. Appearance: Somewhat hazy orange body with healthy carbonation holding up a sticky off-white head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Hops take a floral turn at the start, letting in more caramel than expected; melon/citrus like hop notes come up more towards the finish, which is lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Lots of good things about this APA; I just wish that the fruitiness of the nose could’ve translated to the flavor more.
