NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2013
Draft at Kedzie. Pours a pale gold with a sticky white head. Nose is pineapple and citrus, light petrol, toast and guava. Light ethanol as well. On tasting, moderate bitterness that sharpens through the finish. Guava and pineapple, kerosene notes. Light malt overall and dry finish. It’s an ok beer but not really something I’m a big fan of.

HuskerTan (1420) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 25, 2016
Can. A- Grassy, mango, papaya, pineapple, tropical fruits, pine. A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, white head. T- Pine, grassy, floral, herbs, tropical fruits, bitter, subtle nuttiness. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Lots of juicy fruits on the nose followed by a more bitter taste. Pretty tasty but a little aggressive on the finish to be really great for me.

DuffMan (8803) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
On tap @ Radio Maria-- literally the last pint, and so perhaps the reason why it looked the way it did: opaque milky light gold capped by a thick creamy white head. Citrus and mango, light pine, lightly bready malts, long bitter finish.

rjplumer (909) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 15, 2016
Mild citrus fruit aroma. Golden amber body with a mild haze. Mild bitterness. Balanced with a citrus taste. Has finish that is dry and crisp. Drinkable and refreshing IPA.

MaBeer1972 (1642) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2016
Six pack of cans from Yankee in Sturbridge. Pours out a good looking hazy light golden color with a lacy off white head. Bright fruity-spice aromas and flavors. Good bitterness. Slightly sticky finish but otherwise quite good.

Can. Pours nice golden copper. Beautiful appearance. Has a huge punch of hops. Nice aftertaste of piney and grassy. Excellent beer. One of te betters from revolution.

arnold931 (1178) - Iowa, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Can. Pours clear golden with thin white head. Nose is grapefruit and pineapple. Taste is similar with some nice malt sweetness. Aftertaste is surprisingly bitter.

growler6 (101) - Pocasset, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2016
A very smooth IPA, mild peach, pear, orange and earthiness on the nose from start to finish. Dry grass and Brazil nut malt finish are not overly sweet and finish abruptly with the bitterness. Easy drinking and a bit watery for a 7% ale (be careful it can go down the hatch quickly) but is spot on. Neither an English nor American IPA, is this an Australian ( Galaxy IPA)? Very Good.

Draft to pint at cappy’s pour avg gold with moderate white head. Nose grassy, floral, resin. Taste moderate bitter bite up front, then resin, kiwi. Moderate bitter through the finish.

MetalNHopHead (1153) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 22, 2016
First off, big thanks to panicaholic for giving me the chance to drink this. Galaxy hops are tricky. The Australian hop varietal is known for its high alpha acidity. They can be overbearing if not handled thoughtfully. Revolution seems to know exactly how to use them. Galaxy Hero pours orange with a slightly rocky head. Grassy and citrusy aroma with a bit of bready malt behind all of it. Flavor showcases bittersweet earth, passionfruit, grapefruit, and other tropical fruits. Lovely balance for an aggressive hop. Galaxy Hero is still dank, but it’s hugely drinkable. The sci-fi inspired artwork is pretty great, too.

TattooJack (427) - Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Poured from the six pack of cans, slightly cloudy amber with a hint of orange, the can says 7% I agree. It’s sticky, piney, gritty, dry, easy drinking, and just hits the mark on the alcohol content, winner, winner, chicken dinner.
