As good as Unsessionable was. 11% is well hidden, lots of citrus. Would love to do a side by side with unsessionable

A- The can pours into a goblet with a deep golden, somewhat hazy body. A large, fluffy head rises atop the brew with pretty good retention leaving sparse webs of lace behind.

S- Intense candied citrus hops like orange mostly as well as some floral and pine tones. The candied feel comes from the sweet maltiness beyond the hops.

T- Very sweet with plenty of caramelized grain influence. Hop profile is similar to the nose but gets more muddled here from the sweetness and caramel malts. Orange first and then notes of pine, floral and earthy hops in the backdrop.

MF- A thick texture backs up the massive flavor with a creamy, chewy texture. Moderate level of carbonation and a medium level of bitterness in the ending of each sip.

11% is a tough place to go with IPAs; I find the level of success drops drastically after about 10% and here the sweetness and caramel from the grains does not play very well with the hops.

This is a great Imperial IPA. The alcohol with fruity taste is balanced perfectly. The hops work together in a incredible way, they compliment each other. This is a new favorite Imperial IPA. Bravo Revolution. You balance the alcohol very well in the taste I must add.

12oz can poured into a snifter. Canned on date of 05/12/15.

A- Pours a slightly hazy amber, bordering orange color. A good amount of white colored head quickly fades.

S- Sweet grapefruit and overall citrus on the nose.

T- Sweet maltiness is first apparent along with citrusy grapefruit notes. The hoppiness isn't overwhelming for 100IBU by any means.

M- Medium bodied, hoppy, dry finish, alcohol well hidden.

This one is rather sweet but not bad.

12 FL. OZ can
Served in a snifter

This beer pours amber in color with golden highlights. It is topped with two inches of creamy, beige head that leaves some sticky lacing.

The smell is sweet with some tropical fruit aromas.

The taste is sweet. I get some mango and peach with some alcohol through the middle and finish.

Medium mouthfeel. Velvety smooth

I like the hop flavors. The sweetness is the thing that I am having trouble with with this beer. It wasn't as good as I'd hoped, but at 11% abv I am not complaining (too much).

Look - copper color and slightly hazy with a great two finger white head with sticky lacing
Smell - piney resin strong hop smell with some citrus and mango tones after smelling it for a while
Taste - initial kick to the face with strong hop smack. Pretty bitter with some tropical fruit flavored after a few min.
Feel - medium full body with medium full carbonation that gives a little tingle to the tip of the tongue.
Overall - pretty good but not my favorite imp ipa
