Notes / Commercial Description:
Also known as Unicorn Galaxy

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 bring 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.

Straw yellow and golden in color, mostly clear. One finger of white head with good retention. Aroma is pineapple, tropical fruit, grass. Herbal and dank notes as well. The taste hits the notes but more powerfully. Tropical fruit, guava, pineapple, grass. A sweet malt body balances it well. The mouthfeel is damn near perfect - medium-full body, moderate carbonation, creamy and silky with a bitter, slightly dry finish. A definite winner from PDubs.
