look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

What a great beer. I honestly think it is the best beer in the midwest for the price. I get a can of it for a $1.25! I mean come on. Huge hop notes, good alcohol which is not over the top like some of these beers coming out. The citrus is amazing on the nose. It is just a great refreshing beer that I think any IPA drinker would love. Again, being an IPA it needs to be fresh.

3.96/5  rDev -3.9%
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.

4.13/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours deep golden with a fluffy, lasting head. Thin lacing sticks.

The smell is of mandarin orange, some pink grapefruit and a hint of pine. Some caramel mixes in.

The taste is of citrus, pine, caramel. Caramel adds a sweet backbone, but it lands bitter dry.

Carbonation is very appropriate for the style, giving tit a chewy body. Refreshing and smooth. Alcohol well-covered.

This is a wonderful example of an American IPA! A nice blend of hops with a caramelized malt backbone.

12oz can (4/22/14) poured into an Allagash stemmed glass.

A - Pours a pale, orangey amber color with very good clarity. Two fingers of fluffy white head rise to the top of the beer and show excellent staying power. Dense, webby lacing is left on the glass as the head slowly dissipates.

S - Fresh grapefruit and lots of pine dominate the aroma with some grassiness and hints of mint kicked in as well. Soft, biscuity malt at the base, traces of caramel malt. Nice balanced aroma but with hops taking the lead.

T - Crisp hop bitterness up front, bitter grapefruity rind and flesh, resiny pine, faint earthy malt - again, very well balanced.

M - Medium in body with a firm, prickly carbonation that makes this quite lively. Hops are bright and crisp, very smooth and easy drinking IPA.

O - A very good IPA...approachable for newbies, sessionable for veterans. Went thru a 6 pack of these received in trade pretty quickly...was a favorite out by the pool on hot afternoons. Definitely would look for this one again.
