Galaxy hop was created by Pebbbles
Description:
The Australian hop selection Galaxy is a high alpha dual purpose triploid cultivar with a marked and unique hop aroma. Bred by Hop Products Australia at their Rostrevor Breeding Garden Victoria. Galaxy, when add late in the boil, has been found to impart a unique and pleasant flavour to beer. The striking flavour has been described as a combination of citrus and passionfruit, whilst still contributing significant bittering.

Origin
Galaxy was bred by Hop Products Australia at their Rostrevor Breeding Garden in Victoria in 1994. It was bred by crossing a female tetraploid (J78) with a male derived from Perle. Galaxy is 2/3 J78 and 1/6 a male derived from the Germany cultivar Perle.
