4.6/5 rDev +11.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a Sam Adams pint glass from a 12oz can:
Appearence: very nice, pale malt, with a slight amber color, just how a true IPA should be, not amber, but PALE.
Aroma: to put it simple, its amazing, i get a bunch of citrus with a lingering spicy almost black pepper with some pine, but citrus dominated. Simply a beautiful smell, one of the best smelling IPAs ive ever smelled.
Flavor: hops from begining to end, citrus, again, is dominent, i do get a spicy earthy hop flavor as well, perfectly balanced by sweet lightly toasted malt, almost like a sweet bread. Very well balanced beer right here, finishes slightly dry, while still leaving some mouth feel.
Overall: a world class beer, i dont say that very often, but this one truly is. A great example of a west coast american IPA. I would reccomend this if youre in the market for a true IPA that is NOT overwhelmed with crystal and carmal malts that i feel fight with the hops that we all love in a good IPA, instead, this is pale malt dominated, and it works beautifully. Good job Revolution!

I've had this a few times on tap at the brewpub. Reviewing at the time of drinking a can at home, but with both can and draft very fresh in mind. Poured into a FFF Teku.
A: Dark golden in color with 1 finger of white frothy head that reduces fairly quickly and leaves little lacing.
S: Citrusy up front, with a combo of citrus and pine as the lingering aroma.
T: I get a lot of citrus fruits up front, and a very mild pine aftertaste. There isn't a huge bomb here, but a very enjoyable palate.
M: Carbed well to style, leaves a slightly dry finish.
O: I always enjoy an Anti Hero when I have the chance. This is a very solid IPA that should not be overlooked. If I had to compare this to any beer, I would say it is more similar to Jai Alai than any other beer I've had.
