Replicale from Brewer’s of Indiana Guild Microbrewer’s Festival, July 2011. Single hop pale ale using Galaxy hops. Served in a Bell's tulip. Thanks to Ethan for bringing this back from Indiana.
A - A finger of white foam settles to a thin cap, leaving behind spotty lace. Transparent golden body.
S - Smells like Galaxy hops alright. Tropical fruits, and some pine and leafy character as it warms up a bit more. Malt backbone is sugary and surprisingly hefty, albeit still quite reasonable for APA.
T - Again, a delightful blend of tropical fruits, citrus, and floral hop character with a sugar and toffee malt backbone. Bitterness level is moderate.
M - Zesty carbonation, medium body, lightly grain texture, and an oily resinous finish. Could stand to be a touch dryer.
D - Really easy drinking stuff - I wish Half Acre had made something like this (i.e. a Galaxy version of regular Daisy Cutter). Yet another showcase of the extremely delicious and versatile Galaxy hop. I hope Flat 12 makes this regularly, as it's too good to be a festival one-off.
