Style: Single Hop IPA
As you’d expect, we’ve utilised Galaxy at every stage of the hopping process, whirlpooling with 5g/l in a wort packed with the high portions of oats and wheat that’s come to be expected of the NE IPA style. For dry hopping we upped the rate to a heady 25g/l, to really take advantage of the rich oil content that large Galaxy hop cones deliver. The result is an IPA leading with big passion fruit and peach aromas which carry on to the palate, backed up with juicy mango, some citrus, and hints of grass and fern on the finish.
