4.12/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: A surprisingly clear deep yellow-amber in color. Forms a sizable, fluffy, white head that sticks around for a while. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is quite pleasant. Given that this is hopped with Galaxy, it is unsurprisingly citrus forward, with lots of sweet orange notes. Tangerine and clementine. A slight hint of floral.

T: The taste is similar, but the sweetness is not as pronounced. Orange, orange pith, and even a touch of lemon. The finish is herbal, bordering on medicinal.

M: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. The bitterness is mild; quite restrained actually, but there is an unpleasant oily, resiny quality to the beer that only develops a good minute or so after the swallow.

O: Overall, this is a very nice beer. I'm a fan of Galaxy hops and this beer showcases them nicely.

Ok beer. More malty than hoppy for my taste.

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.
