Galaxy hops are a highly sought after Australian aroma hop with limited supply. Huge oil content with pungent citrus and passionfruit flavors. Amazing in hoppy pale ales and IPA’s.
VIC SECRET Description
Pineapple, pine, passionfruit. The flavors are lighter than the ones you will find in Galaxy hops. This variety is definitely a flavor hop. The notable fruit flavors really come out in the finished beer when Vic Secret are added as a whirlpool addition or when dry hopping.
Previously named Stella, Ella hops are the little sister of the Australian superstar Galax. Ella and Galax share the same mother, but Ella’s father is a variety from Spalt, Germany. This parentage gives Ella a pleasant floral aroma that is backed by soft spice. These qualities work best in lagers and pilsners, but Ella can be incorporated into Pale Ales and IPA during dry-hopping. This will preserve some of the lighter oils that are more fruity and tropical like in Galax.
