CROUCHER BREWING COMPANY GALAXY IPA

Croucher Brewing Company Galaxy IPA. Another good Kiwi IPA, from Rotorua; the aromatic capital of NZ if you believe the label (more of that later).

A good looking IPA that has the initial fizzy fruit aroma of Galaxy hops.

It has a very hoppy bitterness contrasted by a smooth malt mouthfeel.

This went down well, until I detected a strange odour in the fruitiness. A bit of wet dog maybe? Then I read the label. Ah, the essence of Rotorua; hot springs and all the sulphur you can breathe.

A very enjoyable IPA, even if you need to hold your breath as you sip.

 

7/10
