Bottle thanks to scalzo!

Ruby gold body with some nice beading, produces a finger+ off-white head that leaves behind layers of lace.

Nose is tropical and citric... dense... bittersweet...

Oranges and peaches, tame bitterness, semisweet. I like. This one is gonna go down quick.

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.

(Served in a long stemmed tulip)
A- This beer pours a clear apricot body with a thin snow white head that sticks to the glass in thin sheets of white film. There is a sluggish micro carbonation working its way to the surface.

S- The green herbal hops have a juicy quality to the with some unripe citrus in the finish. The full aroma can be smelled even during the pour.

T- The full woody green hops have a dark papery quality to them with a pungency in the finish. There is an unripe lemon taste in the finish with some sweet malt popping through as it opens. The mellow pungency is full as it lingers in the aftertaste. As the beer opens up there is a wintergreen flavor in the finish of the hops.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a tight fizz that compliments the hop finish very nicely.

O- This beer has some nice full hop character with an interesting depth that is more woody dark unripe fruit and wintergreen. There was good malt support and the pungency finished in nicely without much bitterness.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Clear gold with a foamy white head. Looks very nice, nothing special.

S: Galaxy! Incredibly fresh, crisp and dry. There is a tangerine, orange, mango pungency - like a tang. Slighter sugared grapefruit peel. A vinous chardonnay grape dryness in the background as well as slight strawberry sweetness.

T: Incedibly crisp and refreshing, vinous dryness. The nose is super sweet and I am glad that taste isn't. Hit first with a slap of bitterness, then a galactic crisp burst of tropical fruits, finishes dry. Not very complex, but very tasty

P: Light/medium body - feels like a good IPA. Very refreshing

O: A great variant on an already great IPA. Love NZ hops

A solid IPA, with lovely complex grapefruit orange tangerine citrus taste. Very drinkable. Carbonation is right there. Bg IBU but not a palate eraser. Bottle from 20 West Side Wine and Spirits. Slightly orange colour, good retained head. Some bubblegum.

650 mL poured into a Teku snifter.

Appearance - Golden yellow. Clear. Small white head. Retains well.

Smell - Nice citrus hop. Grapefruit. Orange. A little bit of grain.

Taste - Less impressive. More sweetness comes through. More grapefruit than orange hop. Grain very prominent. Medium bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation. Drinks easily.

Overall - Better aroma than taste. Smells like a double but tastes like a single IPA.
