Notes/Commercial Description:
Our friends south of the equator really have this hop growing thing figured out and we are ecstatic they do. Without them we couldn't brig you Unicorn Galaxy. We built a platform of malted barley and wheat then atop that we constructed our ode to Galaxy hops. The hop character really shines through with aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, tangerine, citrus, passion fruit and fresh cut grass. Drink early, drink often.

4.48/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Bottle from buzze40, 650ml bottle into a tulip. Batch 65.

Clear orange, white head with decent lacing and retention. Nose has huge pineapple juice character, piney, citrus and general fruit juice notes. Sweet candy-ish malt character. Taste has more pineapple juice, piney bitterness, gummy bears and candy malt. Medium sweetness cut by a nice sharp but not too intense bitterness. Some alcohol and lower medium carbonation. Crazy nice hop profile, huge hit.
