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.

Served on cask at Revolution in a pint glass.

Appearance: This has a starkly different appearance from the regular version (served side by side). This has a clear copper color with a perfect natural creamy foam head 2 inches high.

Smell: Caramel, soft brown sugar, and a light orange and citrus hoppiness. This aroma is nice, pleasant, and smooth.

Taste: The flavor is smooth, with soft brown sugar, orange rind, some caramel and honey malt notes, and some fruity tangerine hoppiness. The finish is fairly even and mild without much lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: A soft, light, natural carbonation is apparent and expected. The cask format provides for an enjoyable smoothness that I like.

Overall: On cask as well, this does not exhibit the typical blast of hops that I look for in an IPA, but the refreshing natural carbonation greatly improves this beer.

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.
