BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Revolution Brewing
Illinois, United States
revbrew.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This American IPA is brewed with 2-row and Pale malts to establish a smooth malt profile and golden color. We used Apollo, Warrior, Crystal, Cascade and Amarillo hops in the brewhouse to achieve an intense but clean bitterness and aromas and flavors of fresh flowers and citrus juice.

Near the end of fermentation we dry-hopped this beer with Mosaic, Citra, Crystal, and Sabro to infuse this IPA with notes of coconut, pineapple and freshly grated citrus rind!

The resulting beer is both clean and crisp, bursting with tropical fruit character and very easy drinking even at 70 IBUs and 7% ABV.

Look: semi-clear clear golden color, 4F head,good head retention. Spiegelau IPA glass.

Aroma: fragrant, vanilla,fruit.

MF: sticky, smooth, very malt forward for an IPA.

Taste: interesting meld of fruit, some flavors not easily identifiable.

Finish: not too hoppy.

Lots of balance in this beer. This is the way IPAs should taste. Very enjoyable.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, and narrow collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of coconuts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of coconuts along with notes of orange citrus and hints of pineapples. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There is just a slight amount of crispness.
O: This IPA is definitely very tropical. I really liked the aromas and flavors of coconuts as you don't normally see those in beers, especially in an IPA.

Serving type: can

Standing on its own and not comparing it to other ones in the series. Fragrance of tropical fruits. Taste follows right along. Great balance between the hops and malt. Not overwhelming in hop presence, malt, or ABV. Just a very drinkable IPA. Very nicely done, will buy again.

Nearly clear golden color with a luxurious off-white head. Tropical hop aromas, which isn’t a surprise, given the name of the beer.

The taste is full of dank citrus flavors, and there’s a nice malt component, too. Easy drinker at 7% ABV.

Pouring from a 12 oz. can into a pint glass. This beer is a PERFECTLY clear golden color. It has half a finger of white crown. I love the clarity. The smell is somewhat muted but presents citrus/tropical flavors when taking a deep breath. The smell is in there, but you have to search for it, which I don't care for. The taste is almost just like the smell. After taking the first drink I'm blown away... only by the huge lack of flavor. Picking up pine and resin, and searching for it at that. The mouthfeel isn't too bad as it provides a wet and sticky resiny coating, but overall, bring something better than this.
