look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

Appearance is very pale and clear. Nice lacing, not much head retention. Nose is floral with notes of grapefruit, grass, and grain. Taste is less bitter than anti hero and a little smoother. Mild bitterness on the finish and very dry. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. Overall, this is the least exciting of the hero variants, but a solid IPA nonetheless.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear golden with a lot of carbonation and a fizzy, white head that dissipates quickly into a cap. Pineapple and pepper stand out on the nose with some citrusy notes in the background. Taste is bitter, but not harsh, and some fruity sweetness hits you in the middle. Medium bodied and slightly sticky mouthfeel to this one, and it leaves behind a fruit juice aftertaste.

Overall: One to get when you see it for sure, nothing to go out of the way for.
