22oz Bomber
Four Seasons Liquors - Morris, IL

The second, and most recent, release of Galaxy Hero is crystal clear and 24kt golden with an orange hue along the sides of the glass. The foam is pure white and soapy on the crown but dense along the glass. Puffy, thick lacing gets left glued to the glass after each drink. This is a damn fine looking IPA.

There is no mistaking the incredibly potent smell of freshly peeled tangerine. A touch of overripe lactic pineapple follows with other miscellaneous tropical fruits. Undercurrents of soft pine and resin bring some depth. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice also has it's fingerprints all over this IPA. A little sugar cookie malt is present but barely noticeable with the generous hopping. Juicy!

Again, we are greeted immediately with juicy tangerines, mouthwatering in fact. Pineapple and sweet tropicals run through mid-palate. There is some of that resinous quality in the background and lingering on the swallow along with pithy grapefruit. The malt base is more graham cracker than sugar cookie like the nose led me to believe. Excellent!

The body is just shy of moderate with an effervescence upfront that segues into velvet on the swallow. The finish eventually dries up and the lingering bitterness never surpasses moderate. Drinkability is off the charts.

Straight up fruit juicy. The tangerine is pure like in no beer I've ever had. The smell is saliva inducing, the flavor juicy ripe, and the drinkability is off the charts. I bought a couple bottles last year and drank it on tap a few times but don't remember it being near this vibrant, it is only 3 days from release I suppose. Buy it and drink it!
