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.
