An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. “Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.” This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.

12oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours a shiny transparent bright golden, nice fluffy white head that sticks around and fades slowly leaving nice lacing. Good looking IPA. The aromas are really nice. Lots of pine and ripe tangerines and oranges. Very floral and slightly tropical. Not overwhelming, but just smells very plesant. The flavors match the nose, but slightly fall off. Still tasty though. There's a subtle bitterness, not extreme, but refreshing. The malts are there, but still let the hop flavors shine. There's sharp pine resin notes. Nice flavors, but light and subtle, which can be a good thing in some cases. Mouthfeel is wonderful. It doesn't have a unique mouthfeel, but it's extremely light, smooth and the carbonation is spot on. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied. The mouthfeel makes this beer extremely quaffable. Easy drinking beer. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

First time trying something from Revolution, and I like it. In the world of IPAs, this is much better than alot on the market. It's just short of being something outstanding, but it's easily a beer I'd enjoy again. Nice brew.

Aroma: Floral hop aroma up front with a light and pleasant citrus character. Hints of orange and lemon and a hint of pine. Fermentation character is clean with all the trappings of a hopped up American IPA.

Appearance: Deep copper pour with a medium white head that retains well. Appears still in the glass. Lacings cling to the glass.

Flavor: Big floral and citric hop punch up front. Just a hint of caramel sweetness that is quickly subdued by the big citrus hop flavor and bitterness. Balance is firmly bitter. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium high carbonation. A hint of hop derived astringency and just a touch of alcohol heat.

Overall impression: Immensely drinkable and loaded with tons of hop character. I love this beer. Great example of the style.
