Long Hop Brewing Co. Galaxy NEIPA – American IPA at 6.5% ABV | 43 IBU (C$4.50 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 20-May-2021, acquired 10-Jun-2021, reviewed 15-Jun-2021)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical & stone fruit, cereal grains, citrus, dank resin. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration slightly spicy finish. (4/5)

I’m not sure that it’s single-hopped, but it might be – certainly, I’m not getting anything that can’t be Galaxy. I like this one: there’s pleasant tropical and stone fruits on the front end, followed by citrus and a mild dank skunky resin, all on a clean malt background. It’s a bit sweeter than I’d prefer, but not excessively so, and it ends up being easy to drink. Pretty similar to their “Hazy Pale Ale”, but more Galaxy-ish, which is all to the good as far as I’m concerned. All in all, very good. (16/20)
