Notes: You want juicy, we got juicy. Brunch-Hero joins the tropical might of Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo, Centennial, and Cryo-Centennial hops with real blood orange puree. The perfect beverage for that unproductive time between breakfast and lunch when you're also after some hash browns.

3.9/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a dark, cloudy orange with a thin off-white head. Poor retention and almost no lacing.

Big grapefruit and orange in the nose, with a little vanilla and dough as well.

The taste is a mix of orange, strong pineapple and herbs. Slight herbal bitterness in the finish.

Heavy-bodied and dense feeling with a strong fizz to the feel.

This brew’s all about the fruit juice, fizziness and herbs. Definitely well named.

4.25/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Very hazy pineapple color with a foamy off-white head, REALLY ripe oranges, grapefruit, and pineapple dominate the nose. Conspicuously so.

The taste of very ripe oranges is also forward on the taste, but the grapefruit and pineapple flavors have their place, and the flavor becomes a bit danker (is that a word?) as this warms.

The mouthfeel is not biting, but firm, which is how I like my NE-style IPA - I don’t enjoy the “pillowy” as much.

The Rev website mentions having this beer with hash browns. I am literally salivating thinking about that flavor combo. Very well done by one of my favorite breweries.

This IPA from Revolution features Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo, Centennial, and Cryo-Centennial hops. If also uses blood orange puree. That;s a lot going on and it kinda missed the mark for me. Might be that there is just too much going on here and the blood orange kinda dominates the taste and smell.
