Galaxy Pellet Hops
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.
Although it has adequate alpha content for bittering additions, Galaxy™ shines when used as an aroma and flavour hop - the later the better for flavour intensity. Its powerful tropical fruit character is at home as a feature in American pale and IPA, wheat beer, saison, and Brettanomyces-fermented beers.
Intense and potent. Musky tropical fruit (passionfruit, apricot, Key lime) with dank citrus and earthy blackcurrant.
