look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

A - crystal clear golden orange in a tulip. 1 stream of carbonation from the bottom.

S - citrus and grapefruit strong hops. Delightfully complex. Some very light malts on the nose as well.

T - amazing. The rye and the hops balance in a wonderful combination that make this beer world class. I am reminded of a better version of 3F rye da tiger. I could drink this all day. The malt comes through but the beer finishes with an exquisite bitterness that keeps you coming back.

M - carbonation is right on. Mouthfeel is good.

O - one of the best beers I've had in a while. It would stand up well to some very good hoppy beers. Happy to have had it on draft at the brewery.

bottled Jan 23, 2014.

A: Fully translucent apricot orange body with a bright white milky head that settles into a small layered rim but has incredible retention. This looks beautiful.

S: Tons of tangerine-like amarillo hops jump out of the glass. Juicy oranges. This one is all sweet fruits and hops - not much malt presence in the waft.

T: A bit of caramel and bready malts upfront but the juicy hops linger in the finish. Bubble gum. Oranges. Tangerines.

M: Medium body. Prickly heavy carbonation. Oily. Sticky. Clean. Crisp. Refreshing.

O: Revolution shoots and scores again - quickly becoming one of my top breweries in the midwest. This is incredibly refreshing and clean. I'd love to smash 4 or 5 of these by the pool in the summer.
