I can't fault Hopunion, but I've brewed with Galaxy in the past, and it normally has a fabulous fruitiness to it. The batch I opened and brewed with, however, is grassy and minty, with little fruitiness to it. As with any agricultural product there will be variation, but I was surprised at how markedly different this is from previous batches of Galaxy.
Hopefully the next batch that comes in will be more like the first.
