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.

Cloudy golden pour with a huge white head. Juicy tropical fruit aroma. Fresh. Medium mouth. Smooth. Taste is fruity. Pineapple and tropical fruit. Slight dankness to this, but is tasty if you like that in your IPA’s.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well, it’s fairly indescript as an IPA, I’d call this more like a mellow American pale ale. Then again, I’m having this after having some Ballast Point Sculpin, so that one may have temporarily wrecked my palate. OK, after a proper palate cleansing with a big swig of water, the hops come through much more. Thanks to my sinuses, there’s not much aroma for me, but this is a very pleasant pale ale with kind of a passion-fruity hops flavor with a tiny hint of citrus hops. I’m not all that familiar with Galaxy and Zythos hops, but I’d get this again. Would really enjoy trying it on tap.
