4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Light golden yellow color poured from a bomber into an imperial pint. Lots of bubbles and a good thick head. Playful aromatic galaxy hops come off this beer, and the flavor is full on galaxy delicious. This is by far the best of the revolution hero IPA’s, and if you’re a fan of galaxy hops you don’t want to miss it.

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.

Love this ipa from revolution. Galaxy hopps are just awesome. Super citruscy and hoppy. Very flavorful yet easy to drink. Had a bomber at home.

Aroma is strong tropical fruit, light citrus and a hint of earthy malts. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit, fruit/berries, malts and a bitter/tangy finish.

Id have to admit after reading the description of this beer from ratebeer ratings that I really wanted to try this and its as good as I imagined. Pours a gold light copper, short head with light lace. Fantastic aroma, tropical, resin, juicy,melon, ripe fruit, orange, more resin. Bit of bready malt. Same in taste with more bready malt, buiscuity. Citrus pine grapefruit resiny in bitter.Cleans up all the flavor in a crisp refreshing tastey finish. Real nice my kind of ipa. Not short of being perfect yet some day their could be more perfect? Or maybe someday Ill meet the perfect beer?

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy deep gold color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big mango, tangerine, pineapple, passion fruit, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt balance; with good strength. Taste of big mango, tangerine, pineapple, passion fruit, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, tangerine, pineapple, passion fruit, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops with moderate pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome IPA. All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Can from Bacco, packaged on 2/29/16. Poured into a pint glass, slightly cloudy effervescent gold with a thick frothy head and sticky lace. Pinecone scent punch in the face, stings the nostrils. Grassy and herbal, medium-bodied, hops throughout. Hopped to the hilt but with a smooth bite. It rocks.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Crystal clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of passion fruit, mango, other sweet tropical fruits. Tastes is slightly bitter citrus which gives way to the sweet tropical fruits of the aroma. Very light mouth feel. This is a very crisp, drinkable ipa.
