Medium orange color with a decent white fluffy head. Some sticky lacing clinger to the glass.

Grapefruit, sweet orange, touch of caramel.

Taste follows the nose. Nice level of bitterness, sweet orange balances. Simple but works well.

Moderate carbonation moves this along nicely. Crushable.

Well done. Another "hero" from Revolution that is tasty, simple and easy drinking. Recommended.

Ok beer. More malty than hoppy for my taste.

Had on tap. Pours 1/3 inch head, clear, gold in color. Taste is honey, lemon, and sharp citrus hops balanced of by crackery malt. Starts sweet with with a dry/bitter end. Very well balanced and super tasty. This is an IPA that I would come back to.

For me This Is a session beer! The taste of hops is light goes down real smooth. Big fan of revbrew glad I hunted this one down.

Revolution Galaxy Hero

Galaxy Hero

Poured into 10oz snifter

A: Orange to yellow . . . Looks like the sunset on the ocean.

S: I'm assuming galaxy hops along with honey, oranges, Clementines and tangerines.

T: Fantastic ! What Galaxy Hero really reminds me of is a toned down Hop Juju.

M: Crisp and clean.

O: Another amazing ipa from Revolution. I think these guys brew some of the best around.
I also enjoy how they seem to have a different ipa for every hop variety out there.
