On tap at the brewery, quick review from written notes.

Pale bright gold and very clear and sharp like a helles lager. Compact head of white foam, drippy arcs of sudsy lacing stick to the glass. Thin veil on the surface.

Softly sweet aroma of juicy citrus.

Bittersweet & hoppy, light flavor of juicyfruit gum and grapefruit pith. Light bodied and subtle, traces of toasted kernels, with a dry, lingering bitter aftertaste. Supple feel and very drinkable. A nice local wet hop IPA that i'll definitely drink again when the opportunity arises.

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.

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.
