Persephone Brewing out of Gibsons BC has started up a single hop series recently. The first beer in this series is the “Galaxy Pale Ale” a series where the beer recipe will only be altered at the hops level. The beer pours an amber colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of tropical fruit, malts and floral hops. The flavour is of tropical fruit, citrus, earth and some hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5%. As single hop beers go this is a great beer that really shows off what to expect with Galaxy hops and how they can change a beers flavour.
Commercial Description: Persephone’s Single Hop Series pays homage to the unique aroma and flavor character of select varieties of hops – the spices of beer – in a sessionable Pale Ale style.
