An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. “Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.” This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.

I really like this beer. Living in Chicago, this is really one of the better IPAs. This coming from a guy who has been known multiple times to drive out to Vermont to pick up cases of Heady and Focal. I’m also a big Surly fan. But in between beer runs, this is what I drink almost exclusively. Not a huge fan of hazy or “juicy” IPAs. Give it to me bitter baby!

When I come to CHI this is all I drink. I love it. Best IPA on tap in the city (and they seem to know this). Oh yeah, pours like beer and tastes like a bitter IPA.

Quite bitter. Complex hops flavor peeks through the intense lingering bitterness and shifts as you drink. Floral, and a subtle Werthers caramel/butterscotch flavor. Not much smell. I like all of these Hero beers. Is this my favorite Revolution beer? Yes, maybe. It's certainly up there.

Solid IPA. Crisp, and a short aftertaste of bitterness after the first several sip. Lingering and taste of bitterness pleasantly occupies the mouth when drinking till the half of the cup. When your taste buds get used to the bitterness, the complexity of floral , fruity and bitter flavor takes over.

On tap in Michigan.

Appearance. Clear golden body with a very tall off-white head.

This seemingly mild IPA, based on its sweet aroma, soon reveals a strong hoppy flavor with relatively high bitterness. Medium-full body with medium carbonation.

Clear IPA-ish look with one single solitary chunk. Very powerful stanky smell, like lemon Pine-sol. Taste is heavy pine and garlic and onion. The scent is the standout here, garlic and orchid
