I grew up living in a passion fruit heaven where limber (popsicles), batidos (shakes) and jugos (juices) were and are the go to fruit next to coconut. You want to live? Go grab a batido de parcha(passion fruit shake), sit on Luquillo beach, eat a papa rellena and watch the beautiful Puerto Rican water. It has always been one of my favorite juices and I still look for it on menus when I’m out. About two years ago I came across Galaxy hopped beer and I was so enamored by its similarity to parcha that I fell in like with the hop. I brewed a beer with the hops, I tried as many commercially available beers as I could made with it and sometimes I like to strip down to my skivvies and smear it all over my body, I even hear its good pa’ la prostata (unconfirmed).
Another hop that has the similar passion fruit profile similar to Galaxy is Nelson Sauvin hops. I had Alpine Nelson about a year ago and it changed my world. Today I have the fortune of tasting one of the better Nelson Sauvin hopped beers I’ve had, Modern Times Blazing World. Watch the video and let me know what you think!
