American Double / Imperial IPA |  8.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Originally brewed as the 100th beer at our brewpub, this strong pale ale packs a serious punch with massive hop flavor. Intense dry-hopping brings a deep, resinous, citrus blast reminiscent of cutting into a fresh bag of hop pellets.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a dark orange color. Just under a finger worth of head on the pour which left sticky rings behind. Normal amount of active carbonation for the style, present but kept in check.

Smell: Orange peel, medium bodied fruits, and sweet toffee on the front. There is a peculiar oily, syrupy aroma that is very noticeable on the body and lingers throughout. Solid pine bite on the back end.

Taste: Light to medium bodied tropical fruits hit the palate first. Solid caramel and nutty malt backbone make you believe this is still a pale ale. Malt heaviness pulls up on the back end and a lighter sweetness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: Very drinkable for what it is. Hops and malt take it easy on the palate. Carbonation is on the lower end.

Overall: A pretty solid beer but nothing really stands out and makes you want to keep coming back. A double pale ale is an interesting style but they pull it off here with a big malt forward beer. Okay but Revolution has many other hop options I would go with before this.
