a beautiful clean golden/copper pour, lots of visible carbonation and 2 fingers of fluffy white head which gave off a tremendous amount of lacing. smells of fresh cut grass, grapefruit, pine, and bread. a delicious bready and refreshing beer with a nice burst of grapefruit and grassy hops. nicely balanced bitterness through the glass. a very refreshing beer for the summer time, and perfect for hoppy beer lovers. it's in no way a hop bomb, but it is very nicely done as far as ipa style goes. medium body with medium carbonation, very easy drinking and refreshing.

this is my first brew from revolution and i'm definitely enjoying it. i'd like to try some more of their stuff.

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.
