Galaxy® is a dual purpose hop that is grown in Australia. It is owned by HPA and has a Cultivar/Brand ID of 94-203-008. It has an alpha acid of 11-18.5% and a beta acid of 5-11.6%.

Galaxy® hops have one of the highest concentrations of essential oils known in hops. It is an extremely versatile hop and can work to compliment other hops perfectly but it has no problem taking cetner stage as the primary flavor. Galaxy® hops are all tropical fruit with little to no floral, pine or spice flavors and aromas.

There is a distinctive mixture of citrus - lemon, passionfruit, peach and hints of grass - that often gets descripted as strong passionfruit aromas and flavors with blasts of clean citrus and peach. You can also experience pineapple and tropical fruit hints with prominent citrus (as well as the distinctive passionfruit and peach) aromas with spicy components like aniseed and fennel with touches of a fruity combination of cassis, blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry with touches of gooseberry.

It has an aroma that when used as a late addition or dry hop is pungent in flavor of passionfruit and clean citrus, and peach.

It is a great choice for use in Pale Ales, IPAs, Barleywines, Fruit Beers, Saisons, Wheat Beers, Wild Ales, and Single Hop Beers.

Substitutions for Galaxy® are tough but Simcoe®, Citra®, Amarillo® (US), and Amarillo® (GR) could work as a possibility.

As mentioned above Galaxy® compliments many hops and is frequently used in conjunction with Citra®Mosaic® (HBC 369), Simcoe®Columbus (US), Columbus (BC), Motueka™, Amarillo® (US), and Amarillo® (GR).
