Don't get why people like this. I think it's really unusual, and in a bad way.

Aroma is light tropical fruit, citrus and slightly perfumed. The flavor is tropical fruit/pineapple, malts, citrus, fruit and a slightly odd heat in the finish.

A: Brilliantly clear dark straw of light gold in color. Forms a moderate sized white head. Decent retention. Light lacing.

S: Aroma is subdued. What is there is sweetly floral with a bit of orange.

T: Taste is the same, but this is a lighter beer. Lots of floral hops with notes of candied citrus rind, but the hops are bordering on soapiness and there are virtually no malts to balance it out. That said, this isn't a hop-bomb. Nowhere close even. It's just a very light beer that happens to have not a lot going for it.

M: Lighter body. Light-medium carbonation. Lower bitterness.

O: I'm not so sure about this beer. With the light, floral profile, maybe this beer would be better suited for the warmer summer months. Regardless, I didn't care for it much and Revolution's hero beers are typically quite enjoyable.

Had a pint at the brewpub and brought home a growler. Love the brewery, love the hero series, love the local concept. Really wanted this one to be great, but it just didn't do it for me. Nose and initial taste was nice, featuring the familiar fresh, complex, clean, Revolution hop profile. But the finish was off -- I'd call it grassy or weedy or straw.
