Australia’s Galaxy Hops for Sale
Galaxy hops are exceptionally bright. They combine the aromas and flavors of peach and citrus, with a tropical aftertaste. The flavor profile is all fruit — you won’t get a hint of pine, spice, or floral from it. The Galaxy hop variety contains one of the highest percentages of essential oils, which create a unique fruity aroma and flavor.
In addition to its rare features, the hop is under patent so you cannot simply buy rhizomes to grow on premises. The combination of its distinct flavors and rarity makes them a prized variety among brewers.
Bringing Australian Hops to Your Doors
This highly sought-after hop is found in Australia. The continent’s terroir — the fertile soil and abundance of water, among others — produces hops that are much fruitier than those grown elsewhere. It was first introduced in the US in 2011, and it continues to be a preferred variety today.
You don’t need to hop a plane to the Land Down Under and find out where to buy Galaxy hops. Hop Havoc can supply you with this popular variety. Put your orders in advance, and we’ll make sure that you have your galaxy hops in time for your next batch.
With a strong citrus and passionfruit character, Galaxy hops are popular among West Coast brewers who traditionally opt for hoppy flavors. Its alpha acids are at 11.6% to 16% while beta acids are about 5% to 6.9%. Its pungent fruity aroma comes through in the finished product, which is a characteristic many beer lovers look for in their magical brew.
Galaxy hops are versatile, too. Their high alpha acid content makes them an ideal bittering addition, but they also have high amounts of essential oils that provide a burst of flavor and aroma. To bring out this intensity, Galaxy hops are used later in the kettle or for dry hopping. The resulting brew is intense, but it will mellow out eventually and reveal its true fruity taste.
The following are just some of the beer styles that use Galaxy hops:
- Pales Ales and IPAs
- Fruit Beers
- Wheat Beers
