Australian Galaxy® Hops
Australian Galaxy® is one of the most sought-after hop varieties in the craft brewing industry. With notes of juicy peach, fresh passionfruit, extreme citrus and bold tropical fruits, this hop is a perfect choice for hazy IPAs, IPAs, pale ales and fruited sour beers. Best used as a late hop addition or dry hop.
Breeding/Development: Australia. The preeminent Australian hop, Galaxy™ arose from breeding programs in the 1990s with ancestry that includes German Perle. It was released in 2009 and has seen very high demand ever since.
Brewing Application: Aroma and dry hop. Although it has adequate alpha content for bittering additions, Galaxy™ shines when used as an aroma and flavor hop - the later the better for flavor intensity. Its powerful tropical fruit character is at home as a feature in American pale and IPA, wheat beer, saison, and Brettanomyces-fermented beers.
Sensory: Intense and potent. Musky tropical fruit (passionfruit, apricot, Key lime) with dank citrus and earthy blackcurrant.
To preserve freshness, all BSG HandCraft hops are packaged in nitrogen-flushed, oxygen and light-barrier packages.
