Odd garnet hue, solid head. Aroma overall light intensity with tropical fruit but heavy floral rose water essence I didn't care. This carried through to the flavor as well which had moderate intensity at most, probably less. Drank very light with dry finish.

Pours a light gold. Leaves behind a tiny bit of lacing at the top of the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is a juicy, yet dry orangey citrus. Feel is a bit on the heavier side. Overall, I think this is a great brew showcasing the Galaxy hops.

12 FLUID OUNCE can
Served in an IPA glass

This beer pours a light shade of amber with golden highlights. It is topped with several inches of beige head that leaves some decent lacing.

The smell is pine and citrus, specifically some grapefruit.

The taste begins fruity and sweet. The finish is pine and grapefruit.

Medium to light mouthfeel

I was hoping for more out of this beer. It was decent but nothing that I would go out and by again especially with better, cheaper options.

fairly generic citrusy IPA. You get grapefruit, orange, really just a generic citrus flavor giving way to a floral finish. It's honestly not bad, and juicy IPAs are normally up my alley, but I'm not digging it as much as most others.

12 oz can 3/16/17
Look is golden. Lagerish. 2" head poured into pint glass. Leaves some lacing...

Smell is a little weak. I have a good nose, but just don't pick up a heavy scent. I would say fresh smelling..lacing is lacking in the odor department as well..

Taste is surprisingly pleasing. This was my first Revolution product so wasn't sure what to expect... Floral up front, medium body with a hoppy trail.

Feel is cleanish with hint of lingering, leaving me wanting more..

Think I'll have another!
Happy to see a 6pack
Drinks a little light for 7%
Almost looked it over..glad i didn't

A 12oz. can dated 03/16/17 poured in a pint glass.

Look- Pours a transparent gold leaving two fingers of thick creamy white foam.

Smell- Mild onion and spice with a little floral.

Taste- Grapefruit, orange zest, floral and some mild garlic.

Feel- Resiny yet creamy with a bitter dry finish.

Overall- A palate crushing mix of citrus, floral and spice in a well hidden 7% abv. beer. Another winner in the Hero series!

Galaxy hops always rule, and this beverage hits a solid line drive on all aspects of a great IPA. Nice caramel color, great nose, yummy hoppy finish. Thumbs up!
