Revolution Jukebox Hero
Rockin' label as always
Poured into pint glass
A: Dark stout appearance with a slight ruby glow when held against light
S: ahhh . . . Bout time I smelled hops in one of these "black ipa's"
T: Solid for the style. Malts and coffee with good hop bitterness as well. Glad to actually taste some hops in this
M: This has to be the most difficult part of rating for me. It just feels like a good beer in my mouth
O: Fantastic beer. I like this style and glad to see somebody actually using hops. Well done as usual Revolution

Revolution Brewing Jukebox Hero, I'm into this one after the pour into my new IPA glass, I'm sold. Pours a dark almost pitch black with brown ruby highlights around the base of the glass, light cream khaki head forms thick and to the point fine lacing speckled evenly.
Aroma has dark green pine, citrus pith, crushed aspirin, earthiness blended with mild dark chocolate like an herbal mint chocolate Andes chocolate notes.
Flavor creamy dark chocolate, upfront bitter hops earthy piney floral notes a bit of citrus peel in the back end, I can tell this has a bit of age on it no dating on the bottle it must have rubbed off mysteriously. Super solid reasonably drinkable style of black IPA.
Mouthfeel is solid creamy textured slight hop oils, with even flowing carbonation going down. Medium bodied ale, smooth going down on the palate.
Overall, a very tasty option from Chicago, looks like something I would like to drink.

Almost black, this beer doesn't show thickness, as it shouldn't, though the color does as it barely lets some brown into the edges. The head starts off as little more than wisp, with average spotty lacing showing.
The hops show and, while it's not especially roasty, certainly not as much as others of its kind, that has little bearing on it strong malt balance. It's mostly piney and floral overall with some citrus backing it up and a bit of cocoa offering a touch of sweetness to even it out. It's even a little toasty.
The hops take over the flavor as well, but in more dominant fashion. It isn't overbearingly bitter, but it's not too light on the bitterness either and certainly leans heavily hoppy. Pine, grapefruit and orange rind are backed and balanced by cocoa again and there's a touch of wood. An Amarillo-like minty note lends itself to the finish. Overall, what would most benefit this (tasty) beer would be a bit more malt contribution, but this is a good example.
Its crisp medium body is firm and offers a good, strong bite to the palate without hitting too hard. It's really very smooth, too.
