Galaxy Hero, Revolution Brewing Co., Illinois, Chicago

beer_209117The Chicagoist’s beer of the week was chosen by Jason Baldacci who picked this “grapefruit-forward” limited release IPA from the Revolution Brewing Company brewed with Galaxy and Zythos hops.

He said: “The aroma is reminiscent of dripping fresh citrus with just a hint of floral spice. The palate, however, is a wonderful concentration of hop flavor. They lay it in pretty thick, and we picked up a smack of bright tropical fruitiness right up front. It’s definitely grapefruit-forward, but there are underlying notes of kiwi and mango as well that are a little more restrained. There’s a pop of pine that kicks in on the back end that lends a little extra bitterness overall, but the whole thing is balanced with just the right amount of caramel malty sweetness. At 6.6% alcohol content, Galaxy Hero would be a joy to drink for anyone in the mood for something hop-driven.”
