Galvia tasting notes
Galvia is an Imperial IPA from a collab between La Pirata and Galway Bay, brewed with Cascade, Simcoe and Summit hops. Its name comes from the legendary Galvia princess, who donated her name to Galway Bay after drowning in the ocean. It has a fruity nose with peach and apricot. Taste is sweet and bitter, with fruity notes all around and a dry finish.
Imperial IPA or Double IPA is a strongly hopped strong pale ale. Its appearance is golden to light orange-copper, with almost no hazyness. Aromas are predominantly hoppy, with notes of American hops—pine, citrus, tropical fruits, etc.—, and additional dry hopping may give some herbal character. Flavour is highly bitter, very hoppy, with floral hints from the American hop varieties. Finish is dry to medium-dry and medium to high carbonation. It's bitter and hoppier than a English IPA or an American IPA, and less malty and less alcoholic than an American Barleywine.
