Australian developed Galaxy hops are sought after for their intensely aromatic characteristics. Bred from an Aussie high alpha female and Perle male, the result is a wonderfully bright, citrus forward flavor and aroma. Galaxy has a slightly higher alpha acid range between 13% and 15%,but the most common use is as a late addition or in dry hopping, which lends the fullest pungent citrus and tropical passion fruit flavors to a brew. Try these hops in your favorite IPA or Pale Ale recipe. Citra hops or Centennial hops can provide a substitute if you can’t find whole or pellet Galaxy Hops. Taste the Galaxy hops in commercial brews like Flying Dog’s Single Hop Galaxy Imperial IPA.
