Galaxy was bred by Hop Products Australia (which controls a huge amount of Australian hop production) at the Rostrevor Breeding Garden in Victoria in 1994. Galaxy was commercially released in 2009 (first appearing in 2011 in the United States). It is an offspring from a female known as J78 and a male derived from German Perle.
