22 oz bottle with 12-4-14stamped on the bottom of the bottle

Pours a solid copper-brown body with a 1 inch off white head that dissipated rather quickly. Decent lacing

Smell is not very prominent. It's a mostly bready malt. with a tiny bit of pine. No noticeable citrus or fruit notes.

Taste is also malt forward with a very bitter finish. Not sure where this comes from (but it is a good bitterness)

Medium smooth feel with good carbonation

Overall... Good but not great. A very malty pale ale with a decent bite of bitterness. But it lacks any fruit notes.

Maybe my beer was really old I doubt know because they don't date battles, but it was complete malt bomb! Really didn't enjoy the taste of this beer

Correction to 2014 version - 90 ibu 76 AA. Perfect amber color. Balanced rich and bold taste. Rogue Farms Revolution, independent, Newport, freedom, and liberty hops.

Bottle.
Appearance: Amber/copper. Hazy. Nice, medium, fuzzy head. Nice lacing.
Smell: juicy fruit gum. Caramel. My wife says guava.......I don't know what guava smells like.
Taste: toasted bread and cracker malts. Earthy and citrus hops followed by a nice grapefruit peel bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation. Medium body. Dry.
Overall: meh...decent pale. A little different. Malty. Not bad.

650ml bottle, not the freshest - production date apr.29 2014 Specs > 16 Plato - 90 IBU - 76 AA - 24 L

A- murky brown with a touch of red. creamy off white head diminished to a thin layer with nice lacing.

S- I have a slight cold so my nose is a little off but the aroma is a little subdues with some sniffs of grapefruit and floral notes.

T- some crackery malts up front with a slight hint or caramel sweetness overtaken by assertive hop bitterness throughout. Lots of grapefuit and spicy hop oils resonate throughout my mouth. I wish i didnt have a cold right now because i feel like im only getting half the package. Finish is bitter and somewhat dry.

M- nice carbonation, it works well for the beer. mouthfeel is slick and medium bodied.

D- a strong flavor profile kept it enjoyable and very drinkable.

Overall i will be re-reviewing this brew ( sans cold ). Good brew the abv felt stronger than 6.0%. I felt that the 90 IBU rating is about right. Good brew but not the best from this brewery. I felt the hops to be a little overpowering to be honest.

Poured from a bomber bottle into a snifter.

L - Color is dark copper with lots of orange tinting. Head is light tan, thick and sticky. It has serious lacing on the glass.

S - Aromas are mainly of malt, with light toast, brown sugar and molasses. Hops are only secondary, and are earthy rather than highly citrusy. I detect what seems like slight oxidation, which makes sense now that I see on BA the beer was a seasonal summer release.

T - Flavors are also dominated by malt over hops. Malt is toasted and sweet with just a hint of a light roast note. Molasses. Hops flavor is earthy with a low citrus tang. Like the aromas, the flavors indicate an aged, slightly oxidized quality.

F - Medium body. Medium hops bitterness. Low to medium carbonation. Low alcohol presence.

O - There's no way to tell what this beer was like when it was fresh. My sample is aged, lifeless and slightly oxidized. It's just not very interesting. I won't seek it out again.
