    I plan on picking up some Galactic Double Daisy Cutter this month and want to try other beers that feature Galaxy hops

    Trillium Galaxy Dry-Hopped Fort Point Pal Ale is among the best, but something like Galactica from Clown Shoes might be easier to come by.

    Tree House has a batch of Eureka in the tanks with Galaxy that should be ready soon. Looking forward to trying that since everything they brew has been gold!

    The other day I had Trillium's Galaxy dry hopped Fort Point. Excellent and worth trading for.

    Green Diamonds from Other Half is fantastic. Double Galaxy from Hill Farmstead is probably the best I've had. Both are probably a touch out of the way though..

    Galaxy doesn't seem to be too popular on the west coast. We use it, but most beers it's combined with other varieties. Galaxy Showers is the only one that comes to mind that is all Galaxy, and it doesn't get released that much.

    At the link are the beers tagged as using Galaxy hops on the other site in descending order of rating. Surely many beers using Galaxy are not tagged as such.

    Short's Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is all galaxy, though it has some Belgian yeasts, making it slightly different than your typical DIPA.

    I believe Derivative from Proclamation in Rhode Island uses Galaxy in the dry hopping. It's fantastic!
