Pale hoppy ale with a dry finish and a good tropical aroma.
I called this originally stag ale (later Stag Galactico) as I brewed it for a friend's stag do. It was hoppy and dry, with a lot of fresh tropical fruit character and a bitterness that was just right. Ended up with 5% abv and 45 IBU. I made two versions, the second one had extra dry hop in cask (in addition to dry hopping in the fermentor) and worked better.
