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.

A big and well rounded #DIPA sweet and equally earthy. Like a Stone 'Enjoy By' with a natural sweetness. Exceptionally balanced, bruising, clean and refreshing at 9.5%
