4.55/5  rDev +10.7%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12oz can poured into a nonic pint.

A - Light golden in color that has a slight orange tint. Medium sized pillowy white head falls to a small cap. Great clarity and leaving a small bit of lacing.

S - Distinct pine aroma. Tropical with a big peach quality. Bright and floral. About the freshest beer I've smelt.

T - Very early bitterness to this beer which is quite pleasant. Mild toasty malt gives a little bit of sweetness midway. Hop flavor is bright and citrusy then finishes with more pine. Modest bitterness cleans up well.

M - Medium to medium-light body, medium-light carbonation, dry.

O - Very impressed with this brew. Wonderful fresh aroma with a new and unique tropical aroma better than I've seen done yet. Flavor showcases bitterness early and makes for the most drinkable IPA. Body is on the light end but the rest of the feel is perfect. I would love to be able to get more of this and sincerely recommend this beer to all.

3.96/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz can dated 5/30/2014 into tulip glass. My first one from Revolution Brewing, and I've heard good things about them.

A: Pours a golden honey brown with a one finger white head with lasting retention. Some spotty lacing.

S: Pineapple and grapefruit combined with honey and caramel.

T: Quick punch of citrus with some grapefruit and pineapple. A bit of sweet biscuit malts, and a little hop bitter bite at the end.

M: Medium body with average carbonation. Slight bitter finish. Very refreshing.

O: Solid IPA. Not quite as hop forward as I would have liked, but I would pick this one up again.

My first review of a Revolution brew, had a few of these while in Chicago for work. Color was a copper-orange, lighter than many IPAs. The taste and aroma were very piney, with some slight citrus. The hops were borderline underwhelming for this beer, could've definitely used more. Very approachable IPA, and while I don't expect IPAs to be too strong, I could use more than this.

Serving type: on-tap
