A citrusy and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale hopped with Cascade, Citra, and whole Crystal hops for massive aromas and flavors! Fermented with our Belgian Wit yeast for an extra dose of complexity, this one is very drinkable and extremely aromatic.

4.3/5  rDev +8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Light orange color. The body is slightly cloudy with average active carbonation. Head of just under a finger on the pour with sticky lacing left at each level.

Smell: Bready yeast body pops up first with some pleasant medium bodied fruits. Mild citrus fruity body reminds the drinker this is a pale ale. Gummy sweet malt rides out the aroma. The herbal, grassy tones of the yeast go so well with the hoppier tones.

Taste: Getting a lot of hops on the front with accents of grapefruit, tangerines, lemons, kiwis, and lime. A full bodied belgian yeast base warms up in the body adding a lot of darker fruits, spices, and dough. Balanced fruits and limey hops ride throughout into the finish. The hops add a very american bitterness while the belgian yeast evens in out and delivers a wonderfully balanced gem.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is kept in check but certainly is prevalent. Palate is left with a medium dryness but is refreshing which keep you pulling on this brew again and again. 6.8% abv is shocking for me, this one drinks so easy.

Overall: An absolutely wonderful brew. Will go back to this one again and again. Insanely drinkable with so much going on. Love the combination of this being a traditional american pale with a great belgian base. Revolution is absolutely killing it right now. (1,315 characters)

22oz bomber, pours dark orange, smell is slightly hoppy not overwhelming. Taste is complex, layered, fantastic. Great beer. I'm really starting to like this new niche, Belgium Style Pale ales. It's the best of american and UK methods to make such a diverse style. (263 characters)

22 oz bottle dated 2013 served in a Belgian snifter.

A: deep orange-amber color with high clarity and a thin fragile head. Decent lacing.

Aroma & Flavor: With hops that make this citrusy and slightly grassy, and some Belgian yeast adding touchs of nuttiness and funk, this has very good complexity in both aroma and flavor. Also has notes of apricots and tropical fruits. Mildly bitter and subtly sour. I enjoyed the aroma a bit more than the flavor, largely owing to the relatively disappointing aftertaste.

Feel: Medium-light body with medium+ carbonation.

O: a well-done and and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale. Very drinkable and rather aromatic for style. (670 characters)

(Served in a nonic)

A- This beer has a hint of haze to the orange body with a good carbonation that supports a thick ring which sticks to the glass with each sip.

S- The yeasty esters of apricots blends with pine resin in the finish. This is a nice full fragrance of yeast and hops.

T- With notes of white cheese rind and a plastic peppery note is overtaken by a mellow pine sap flavor. There is some pineapple weed hops with a nice bitterness in the finish. As the beer opens up there is a pale malt taste that starts to come through.

M- The medium mouthfeel has no alcohol heat and a good fizz bite that supports the hops.

O- This is a nice big pale ale with a good balance of fruity yeast character and hops. It is very drinkable but the carbonation is a bit to big as it opens up. (792 characters)
