Thereof, what do galaxy hops taste like?
Galaxy is often described as having a passion fruity character along with aromas and flavors of clean citrus and peach. It may also carry threads of pineapple and tropical fruit. In short, its characteristics are all fruit with no floral, pine, or spice.
One may also ask, what are hops in a beer? Hops are the flowers (also called seed cones or strobiles) of the hop plant Humulus lupulus. Hops are also used in brewing for their antibacterial effect over less desirable microorganisms and for purported benefits including balancing the sweetness of the malt with bitterness and a variety of flavours and aromas.
