Alexander Keith’s Galaxy Hop Ale, 5.5% ABV
The Latest in the Alexander Keith’s “Hop Series” of beers where a beer is only made with one specific hop to showcase it (The previous two, Cascade and Hallertauer, I talked about before). Again, I really like the learning aspect of this series, that teaches people who may not know about the elements that go in to their beer. But anyways, on to the review!
COLOUR: I stare in to the abyss and see the dying worlds of yesteryear, my own future, and perhaps even my present. Memories of dwelling in a cave, bones chilled, shivering, screaming for a light that has yet to arrive.
AROMA: The morning light of an undisclosed location that swirls in the sphere of what I once knew to be mine. The wolves arrive, but do nothing. Just stare. Stare at my soul, or perhaps…
TASTE: “Just relax” the professor says as he reaches for the bloodied cufflink that has been in his family for generations. Eyes wide, teeth shaking, the iguana gives a knowing grin. “Just relax”.
VERDICT: The void is upon me now. Emitting a sound that only I can hear. It is warning me, yet pressing me onward. It is pleading with me, yet asking. I scream. I laugh. I cry. I smile. I step forward with arms extended ready to embrace eternity.
