4.13/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Served in a Local Option cervoise.

The dude on the label kinda looks like he would fit well as a Tick villain... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of lightly off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises ruby red grapefruit zest, blood orange zest, peach (or maybe it's apricot...), very mild caramel, and light pine resin. The taste brings in more of the same, though now the pine is swinging around some extra heft, and the fruits are all toned-down a bit. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda sticky and drying-ish finish. Overall, a very nice IPA, one that showcases the Galaxy varietal pretty well.

Pours a crystal clear orange with no haziness. Less than overwhelming nose with hints of orange and pine. Very refreshing taste, smooth and refreshing. Would be a very nice summer IPA as seems best served extremely cold and you could easily put down several of these. Overall quite pleased with this offering from revolution.

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.
