Chicago brewers, esp Revolution please me.
When a beer gets a 4 x the board, I tend to give it O: 4.25 and so in this case. The sum is greater than its parts.

A) Pours a white finger deep head that fades slowly, laces amply, over a clear, straw, golden honey body.

S) Nose starts me with galaxy bright hops, grassy floral, juicy citrus with orange over a light biscuit base.

T Follows nose, where taste brings more bright and blaring bitter hops, grassy floral, orange peel marmalade with abundant bitterness into the drying finish. Background of white cracker.

F) Medium bodied, prickly carb, semi dry sticky finish, nice food beer.

Hop dominant, bright, blaring, but not a palate wrecker.

Ok beer. More malty than hoppy for my taste.

Picked up a sixer from Seven Eleven while visiting downtown Chicago on May 9th for $12.99. Canned on 4-16-2018.

Finally reviewing the last can brought back to Phoenix.

Beer poured orange with a beautiful white head that has some serious hang time.

Nose initially was tropical fruit forward. Subsequently, grapefruit and orange were dominating.

Taste is gooseberry forward with some grapefruit over a nice malt base. Finish is citrus rind with a strong amount of bitterness to let you know this is an IPA.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and refreshing.

Overall a pretty good IPA that is worth trying if you encounter this while in the greater Chicago area.

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.
