Bottle. Pours a clear, dark honey color. Frothy, uneven head. Consistent lacing. Galaxy and Zythos hops. I just had the regular Anti Hero from Revolution, so let's see what these hops do to differentiate themselves. Zesty, tsemi-tropical fruit hops. I am pretty with the aroma of Galaxy and have no experience with Zythos. The very distinct Galaxy scent is detectable but it's clearly blended with other varietals. Fruit medley and herbal hops. Some slightly sweet apricot and pineapple. Some airy, pale malt sweetness. Flavor is mixture of tropical fruit hop, grassy hop, candied malt, and some sneaky bitterness. Many fruity notes to pick out. Malt doesn't overpower the hop showcase. Medium bodied. Bitterness really roars a couple seconds after each sip. No complaints here.
