3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crystal clear new penny copper with a small, white head. The aroma has candy-like orange and grapefruit, with some floral and earthy notes, and some light spice. There really isn’t much malt in the aroma, aside from a hint of caramelized sugar, and very faint roast like you would get from amber malt. The flavor is similar, and reminds of a Dogfish 90min, with a lot more bitterness and a light but silky mouthfeel. Balance leans towards very bitter, but is surprisingly drinkable.

Pours gold with white head, but no lacing. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is the same with some caramel and toffee malts. Good balance and nice taste. Excellent brew.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very clean, golden color with a modest amount of carbonation and a tall, well retained, dense, white creamy head. Aroma is grapefruit and pineapple in the nose with a light touch of pine. Malt takes a back seat but provides a mild clean sweetness. Flavor is fantastic with an overall balance flavor. Notes of grapefruit and a light mango are the most prevalent of the hops flavors with a light biscuit and sweet malt through the entire tasting. Body is light/modest and perfect for the flavors. The carbonation helps to bring a light crisp, dryness to the beer which compliments the hops perfectly. Overall a great beer! The lightness to it really makes it a great warm weather pick up.

Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, foamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is a mélange of grapefruit, passionfruit, sugar cookie and tea biscuit. Medium-bodied and creamy with dancing carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced, providing medium-bitter notes of citrus rinds and grapefruit pith. Crisp, juicy, bittersweet finish.

22 ounce bomber poured an orangish amber color with aromas of hops, light earth, pine and some citrus. Flavors were citrusy biscuits with some pine added, light bitterness, but a solid IPA overall would love to drink this over and over again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A basic pale American IPA with an appreciable dryness. Decent.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed (probably fresh) immediately after receiving it from cetherid, thanks a lot Chris .
The look: Almost clear orangy golden body topped by a persistent off-white head.
In long: Nose is only moderately hoppy with basic fruity (citrusy and others) and light piney notes, a beer that uses new breed of hops to create a common American IPA aroma. In mouth the beer has a body that is a bit on the light side and medium carbonation. Discreet semi-toasted cereals, low sweetness sensation, not-so-assertive hopping leading to a medium and dry bitterness that is mostly fruity. The rather dry finish makes it a bomber you can drink in a matter of minutes, I know I did. Not very tasty, far from aromatic by today’s standard, but highly drinkable. I give this one a passing grade even though there was nothing special here. A Galaxy Hero sounds like an awesome powerful hero, plus we need to replace Superman anyway because in 2013 the poor dude just can’t find a phone booth to change anymore.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Golden-orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of tropical fruit with some pineapple, mango and biscuit. The flavor is similar and also very nice. I get a lot of tropical fruit notes with a low level of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Outstanding.
