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.

Thanks to willseph for this one!

Can poured into a snifter:

A - amber/golden hue with three fingers of head. Aggressive foam at that one! Nice lacing.

S - citrus and tropical fruit notes, bit piney but vague, nice sweetness that comes together at the end.

T - similar to smell, a solid balanced flavor that allows everything to merge for a great taste.

M - light to medium bodied, good carbonation, and easily drinkable.

O - quite a refreshing IPA beer! Great job to Revolution Brewing Company.

A - Poured a nice amber color with a good amount of head

S - A nice pleasing orange/citrus aroma

T - Good combination of hops and citrus and hardly any bitterness. There really is no aftertaste to this beer, from start to finish its a nice citrussy/malty combination.

M - Carbonation is very mild and not a whole lot of body but it goes down really easy.

O - Overall this is a very nice IPA with a great combination of citrus and malt. You really can't go wrong with this IPA.

Appearance-
A hazy deep amber, that drinks in natural sunlight with a surprisingly strong lived straw yellow head.

Smell-
Orange citrus, but not very forthcoming.

Taste-
Just outstanding. This is an IPA everyone can get into, because it lacks the bitter reproach. Usually that lack of bitterness would bother me, but the bright citrus flavor followed by a buttery malt is too tasty.

Mouthfeel-
A bit more oily than expected, but it certainly does not detract. Bubbles can get smaller quicker, depending how you have it served. (glass type, tap, can etc)

Overall-
This is flavorful enough to merit serious contemplation on taste, but accessible enough for all to enjoy. That also implies you can lose yourself within 4+ quicker than most IPAs.

I had nver heard of these guys before a a visit to a Chicago area bottle shop.
Got a mixed six and luckily this was one of my choices.
Pours medium yellow with no head.
The smell is grapefruit with a hint of pine.
The taste is exactly like the smell mostly grapefruit with a little pine. Lots of flavor.
Very low carbonation.
Overall a very good beer.
