Profile 

In case you haven’t heard, I’m not the biggest fan of hazy IPAs. But Creature Comforts often seems to make some examples of the style that I really enjoy. A big part of that is the freshness quotient, I’m sure. In any case, the breweries newest seasonal offering, Galactic Space Circus, is no exception.

It’s a 6.6% alcohol, single-hopped hazy IPA that was brewed to highlight the bright notes of Australian Galaxy hops, including citrus, peach, and passionfruit. It employs the tried-and-true formula of lactose sugar and oats to create the suspended particles that give it a hazy appearance and smooth mouthfeel.

But best of all, Galactic Space Circus is named after the George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic tour that “included singers, dancers, circus clowns, roller girls, and galactic space travel.”

Now that’s really cool!

Pair with

Try Galactic Space Circus with soft cheeses, especially young goat cheese, summer salads with peaches, and desserts such as peach cobbler or shortcake.
