Galaxy Hops!!!!

White head. Color is a clear golden copper.

Flavor profile is mainly hops. Grassy, earthy, citrusy, juicy, and floral. A nice orange flavor. Very clean.

Mouthfeel: Bitter, but not over the top. Light to medium bodied. Ends with a touch of stickiness.

Overall. this is a great beer. I am almost done with my growler and its 2pm. Drinks so easy. One of my new favorites.

Thanks to Joe for sharing! Quick review from notes.
Current batch of this single hop APA with Amarillo.

Bright orange in the glass, brilliant clarity with trails of visible carbonation in the glass. Sticky white foam with a halo of lacing in the glass. Lasting surface coverage.

Fruity citrus peel aroma, classic Amarillo, orange and grapefruit. Some light pale malt behind that.

Taste was similar, citrus and grapefruit, firmly bitter, light bready maltiness in the middle. Clean and light bodied, very easy drinking. Pretty much a prototype example of the style, could be a little more amped up in the hop department, but it was pretty lean and drinkable.

A-Very clean golden color...nice white head and excellent lacing along the glass..

S-Fresh and floral with a unique tropical dimension (coconut) ...some vanilla/oak too...

T-I really enjoy the flavor of this....different than most as it displays a toasted coconut/vanilla/oak layer up front....very fresh floral notes...some garlic/onion burps on the finish which I did not pickup on the taste

M-Drinks like a pale ale should....goes down quick and doesn't carry a heavy weight...certainly not watery but also certainly not an IPA...just a regular weight APA.

O-One of my favorite pale ales ever. This is a single hop series pale ale they are brewing and for this one they used Sorachi Ace which I do not think I have had before. I was supposed to taste lemon but I did not no matter how hard I tried to find it. Just very fresh and floral with a unique toasted coconut/vanilla dimension....maybe some would just call it nutty....kind of tough to put a finger on the description but it is awesome however you want to describe it.
