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.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/15/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, mango, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toast, bread, and floral/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, mango, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toast, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, mango, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toast, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial pale ale. All around great complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
