Lives up to the name. Cloudy yellow orange with minimal lacing. Tangerine, mango, pineapple on the smell. Taste follows, not very strongly, mild bitterness on the back end. Light to medium bodied, dry finish, crisp, easy sipper. Good, but nothing special.

[IMG] Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass canned on 5/13/2020. Pours a very attractive hazy yellow orange with a solid finger sticky white head that leave barbed wire lace along the sides of the glass with solid retention. 4.25

Smell is tangerine, papaya, passionfruit, and apricot really solid. 4

Taste follows tangerine, papaya, passionfruit, and apricot nice. 4

Mouthfeel is bigger than average, soft gentle carbonation, a tad sticky not dry, and at 7.6% ABV it drinks a little bigger and goes down really easy. 4.25

Overall this is very nice and I need to thank Matt @mschrei for this tasty can. Would with out a doubt purchase more of this if I had access. 4.25

This one has a ton of hops including Sabro, Citra, Mosaic, Trident, Azaaca, and Comet. Big burst of pineapple, and mango upfront. Some dankness to this too. Very sweet at first but it dissipates pretty quickly.

Pours a hazy golden straw color with a dense bone-white head, and there’s loads of tropical fruit aromas, including passion fruit, pineapple, and coconut.

The passion fruit and pineapple flavors are really forward on the taste, and the coconut is a really nice complement to those flavors.

Revolution has this style dialed in. A really nice, exotically flavored hazy IPA that works really well in the summer, IMHO. Well done.

Canned on 5/13/20. 16oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy yellowish golden; creamy eggshell white head that falls slowly leaving great thick retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have a subtle blend of tropical and citrus fruits. Mild floral notes. Some crackers and fresh bread. Malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose. Hints of pineapple, grapefruit and orange. Subtle hints of coconut in the mix. Lots of fresh grass. Subtle sweetness. Moderate bitterness. Solid hop flavors. Finishes juicy. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the fuller side of medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's very fluffy, slightly creamy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a pretty solid "New England IPA". It's basically what you would expect from the style. It's refreshing and enjoyable. Not bad at all. I like it.

Great beer.
I’m a fan of Revolution as a brewery, and I will say with great certainty, this is the best offering I’ve had.

It smells of citrus and sweet from the crack of the can. The pale, cloudy yellow pour yields a white head that lingers and clings lightly throughout.

It tastes like it smells on steroids. Magnificent citrus and mild bitterness with an aftertaste that’s worth keeping on your tongue.

Fantastic!
