Default Galaxy hops

I've heard a lot of good things about Galaxy hops. What type of beer should I use them in and should I use them for bittering, flavor or aroma?

I have not used them, but your post made me research them a bit. I think they would be great in an aipa or apa and would probably work great with hop bursting.

They are great in an Ale. Here is one I made which isn't over the top:

5 kg Maris Otter with .5kg malted wheat, 15g Pride of Ringwood for bittering (or use 10g or less of Galaxy) and 15g @ 10min and 20g @ 5 min of Galaxy and US05, made about 23.5 litres of beer 5.25% abv, OG 1.052 FG 1.012 – very simple. That is an excellent finishing hop!

It's an All Grain, so you may not be geared up for All Grain
Cheers!

Not at all. I was expecting it to be more bitter, but it really wasn't. It was a smooth kind of bitter, probably due to the fwh vs. a 60 min. Addition. While it says 86 IBUs, it taste more like 50. I've got another 5 gallon batch of it that I just dry hopped last night. My first recipe and so far, my best brew I've made.
