|Flavor and Aroma||Fruity|
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.
