Sounds good to me, I'm using Galaxy for the first time in a couple weeks in an IPA.

Just brewed a variation on Tasty's APA using 2oz of Galaxy split evenly between 20, 10, and 1 minute. Can't wait to get it bottled and carbed in a couple weeks.

So far it smells pretty good, but doesn't have the tropical aroma like Citra that I expected from the passionfruit description. Closer to your normal centennial/cascade aroma than the tropical.

I just did a galaxy wheat with 100% galaxy hops to about 40 IBU

.5oz FWH
.25oz 30min
1.5oz KO
1oz Dry hop

Smells awesome...a great substitute for amarillo or citra. Im about to brew up a Southern Hemisphere DIPA with galaxy, riwaka, and nelson sauvin. I really enjoy all of those hops

Cool,
I am looking forward to trying galaxy. With it being really hard to get Amarillo and Citra and alot of other hops now. Its seemed like a good time to order a few pounds.

That Galaxy wheat sounds good, our local brewery does something like that but with Amarillo
, its really good.
