Enjoyed on tap at Rev Brewpub. Served in a pint.

A: Pours a clear golden amber color with a white head forming on the pour. The head has great retention as it sticks around for the entire duration of imbibement. Sticky sheets of lace are left down the glass.

S: Earthy and citrusy with a lemon like citrus to it it. Underlying sweet malts with a good balance to it.

T: Bready malts with a an earthy hop profile. Grassy and grainy, slightly dirty with a nice orange zest balance to it. A sweetness on the back end from the malts provides a nice counter point.

M: Light bodied with a nice medium carbonation level. Sweet malt finish.

O: The younger brother of Double Fist this wasn't as citrusy, but still was nice and pretty drinkable. Nicely balanced, but a little too earthy for me. I prefer the juiciness of Double Fist.

this pale ale is pushing an ipa, kept as just a pale ale only by its malt base, which has some decidedly English caramel and biscuit flare. I love the hops here, bitter and fruity both, with some pine resins too. I get orange and pineapple in here, which goes expertly with that bigger denser English pale malt base. it has an almost amber ale malt taste, but the hops keep it drinkable and prevent any sweetness from coming to the fore. centennial for sure, maybe some other higher alpha C varietals, the finish is long and luscious, plenty of bitterness, but not quite ipa status. I liked this as much or better than the ipas I had at revolution. good bubbles, but again, a little filling from the grains, denser than normal for the genre. overall a more than passable pale ale on the hoppy end of the spectrum. good glug here.

Serving type: on-tap
