Growler shared by Dean (brewer at SDBC) at Big Brew Day 2011. Thanks! Poured into a snifter. This is a single hop beer made with Galaxy hops from Tasmania.

A: Dark golden orange with good clarity and a frothy white head.

S: Galaxy impart strong notes of orange flesh with a little gooseberry and a dash of lemon. They're a touch earthy. I also detect a little tangerine. Malt is redolent of caramel, providing balance.

T: Orange flesh melds with caramel and tangerine. The beer is well balanced and quite smooth. No alcohol is evident, and there's no harshness or astringency. Bitterness is at a lower moderate level.

M: Lower medium in body with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is smooth and sticky.

Overall: Pretty good stuff. It's nice to try a single hop beer when it uses a hop that is new to me.
