Drank from a 22 oz bomber.

A: Light amber color, with a small amount of head - maybe a 1/2 inch of head. The lacing is perfect, very nicely carbonated beer. Everything you would want an American IPA to look like.

S: Not a strong aroma. It is lightly hopped, but doesn't have any form of citrus aromas really. Light malt smell also present - maybe caramel malt?

T: A very full-bodied hop flavor - great carbonation. Light citrus flavor - grapefruit specifically. The beer tastes great. It is interesting though, that the beer doesn't have any sort of citrus aroma, but has a nice citrus flavor.

M: The beer is smooth, nicely carbonated and very very drinkable. A great ipa.

O: This is a great IPA. I love the flavor and it is better than Anti-Hero from Revolution. The hoppy aroma mixed with the citrusy flavor makes for a very nice strong IPA.

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.

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.
