4/5 rDev -2.9%
Served in a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Pours a clear amber, with a big, but quickly dissipating off-white head.
Smell is really nice and hoppy - lots of citrus. Super bright.
Taste is a really wonderful orange flavor, and surprisingly not too bitter, considering how wonderful and juicy the hop flavor is. It's pretty sweet, and really tastes like some kind of orange candy. There's a little bit of tartness in there too - like an actual orange. Really, this is probably the most citrusy IPA I've had. The finish is just a tad more bitter than it is sweet, and is fairly dry - it reminds me a lot of actual grapefruit juice.
Mouthfeel is not too thick, not too thin - perfect and expected for the style.
Overall, it's a really great "lighter" (read: not over-the-top) IPA. It's really refreshing, but has tons of flavor. The only criticism I have is that it sometimes can come across as soapy, and is actually maybe a bit _too_ citrusy. I can't believe I can actually have that as a complaint, but there it is. If this was available in GA I would probably have it all the time.

4/5 rDev -2.9%
On-tap at the brewpub; served in a tulip glass.
A: Orange-amber with a slight white head. This is your average, everyday IPA appearance.
S: Crisp tropical fruits and grapefruit. Its all about the hops, but there is still a bit of sweetness in the nose.
T: Follows smell to a T. The hops are consistent, but are supported by a nice malty backbone. Lots of grapefruit and pineapple.
D: Alcohol is well hidden and the beer is really refreshing and tasty. Definitely a good brew for a warm day.
Overall: It really lacks any true flaws except originality. This is your standard no-coast IPA in the veins of Two-Hearted, Centennial, and Commodore Perry. It hits all the marks and therefore, it is a good beer, but it won't blow you away and I know Revolution is capable of greatness. Try Eugene, it will redefine your understanding of its respective style. Anti-hero? Not so much. Still a very tasty beer.
