Bottled April 3rd, 2014

Appearance: Golden color with darker accents of orange. Finger of bubbly head on the pour which settled in to a layer across the top while drinking. Average amount of active carbonation for the style.

Smell: Soft fruits on the front with accents of kiwi, mango, pineapple, tangerines, and mangos. A potent piney opens up and really plays well off the bright fruit hop tones. There are some grassier hop notes as well. The airy fruity softness really rides through and carries the aroma. Some caramel malt hints keep the hops grounded.

Taste: Bright tropical fruits really pop on the front. Some heavier hop notes of saturated oranges shine through but the notes of pineapple, grapefruit, kiwi, citrus, and mangos. Balanced, rounded pine really adds some very welcome bitterness on the body. The finish is a very complex mixture of bright fruits, caramel malt sweetness, with some lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: The carbonation really stands out, adding a pleasant brightness with supreme drinkability. Great balance on the mouthfeel of bitterness and sweetness.

Overall: Man a well craft Galaxy IPA is really tough to beat. This has the layers and hop profile of a much bigger beer. Revolution has a solid handle on all their IPAs and this one certainly has stood out for me. 6 pack cans soon.
