Poured at the brewpub. Crystal clear peach color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops- light citrus and pine. Flavor starts citrus sweet followed by light grapefruit and a lingering mildly bitter finish. Light-medium body with moderate carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From Island Lake Foods, of all places. Pours a very clear golden amber with fine bubbles deep into the glass, and some drops of lace. Aroma is of pine, citrus and caramel ... what more does one need? Lovely Taste has tangy pine, bitter orange and sweet caramel underneath. Slightly sticky. Medium bodied, with a really good balance; the bitterness fought just ahead of the sweetness throughout, but it was a close battle. They had galaxy hero as well, but thought would be something different to try a different hop. Very nice!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottles shared by some fine folks. Pours a hazed deep gold, near bronze. Contrary to Mike’s thoughts, I actually think crystal is a solid hop in the right context. Anyway, Nose is citrus and resiny, pretty straightforward with some light caramel noted along with toast. On tasting, aggressive bitterness but cleaner and less oily and parafin laced than galaxy hero. A touch harsh with a thinnish malt backbone that finishes somewhat sweet. Pretty straightforward IPA here.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours a clean golden hue with a mostly lasting head and good lace. Dank and resiny hops, melon and grapefruit, biscuity and toffee malts, mineral and metallic vapours. The flavor profile is one note and got boring after half a bottle of dankness and oniony notes. The mouth feel is aggressive and biting.... this is nothing close to Galaxy Hero... will not buy again. Crappy hop in, crappy beer out

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow, nice white head, decent retention and lacing. Nose is kinda pissy and wet paper-ish, mingled with some citrus and passion fruit. Mouth is medium-bodied with, lemon zest, grapefruit, passion fruit up front, then some bread, then a long fadeaway of the bitterness which pretty much backs every other flavor throughout. Decent. Not mind-blowing but a certainly drinkable IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle pours a clear golden color with a small white head and average lacing. Aroma is strong and citrus- hoppy: grapefruit, mango, tangerine but also some buttery malts for balance. Taste is bitter at start and finish with a bit of sweetness coming through in the middle. Body is medium with just enough carbonation. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky. Very drinkable, if you’re used to a citrus hop explosion. Another very good, if obscure IPA from Revolution.

650ml bottle. Golden pour. Nice smell, light floral, citrus, malts. The flavor is juicy, spicy, malt noticeable, medium bitterness. It is pleasant even with some buttery maltiness.
