Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 8/23/18; into a pub glass.
Appearance- deep gold, transparent with plenty of bubbles that steady a medium thick sudsy off white head; lacing is decent.
Smell - orange peel, grapefruit rind and pine needles.
Taste - add a touch of earth to the citrus hops and pine needle; flavors are profound and impactful!
Feel - medium body, well balanced and very drinkable given the higher end ABV for an IPA!
Overall - very solid, traditional IPA that delivers in taste and feel, however lacks a little in the nose keeping this from being an outstanding; old school hop heads will enjoy this one!

12 oz can with a 26 June 2018 fill date stamp served in a pint glass.
Pours amber with a tall, creamy, off-white head.
Moderately strong aroma with fruity hops and little else.
Moderate-mild bitterness for style with plenty of generic citrus in the taste and aftertaste, accompanied by some subtle bready and sweet malts.
Overall: best of the 3-4 Revolution xxxx-Hero beers I've tried so far.

Hard to fault featured Citra, or Revolution.
a) Dark amber body with white lacing and lasting head.
s) Floral, citrus, marmalade, malt.
t) Falling for this: all of the above but bigger, the caramel malt uplifting all the other flavors as it opens.
f) Full, round, soft, creamy body, lean and clean finish.
o) Best of the heroes? Try 24.

12oz canned 4/26/18 (27 days ago) poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass at fridge temp 7.5% ABV. The beer pours bright light orange amber in color with nearly white head. The head recedes to a thin cap and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is orange and grapefruit along with the corresponding rind. The taste is a little semisweet caramel with some citrus bitterness coming through from start to finish. Nicely balanced and not very bitter. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. Overall, very good. This is a mid tier Citra IPA that wouldn't go head to head with the big boys, but is better that most.
