Sampled from a 22oz bottle I picked up during a recent visit to Chicago.

Golden and quite clear with a smallish head of large bubbles. Some lacing. Aroma is tropical fruit. Flavor follows with some citrus added in. There's much more hop flavor than bitterness. Nice variety. Slightly thin with a moderately high carbonation.

Very nice!

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.
