12oz can dated 5.30.14 poured into a Revolution Pint Glass.

The beer pours a nice clean, clear amber color, hues of copper and honey, a few bubbles rise to the top of the glass. Atop the beer rests a thick, frothy, white head, about a finger or so high with nice retention that leaves a bit of spotted lace. The aroma is nice, pleasant bitter hops, earthy, resinous and piney, lightly citric, a bit of crisp spice with plenty of smooth malt balancing the bitterness. Simple, balanced and presentable. The flavors follow well, lots of resinous, piney hops, grassy, earthy and weedy, with some floral character and bitter grapefruit peel, light spice with some faint tropical fruit flavors as it warms up while the malt is a bit more influential on the tongue, soft but hearty, rich caramel flavor finishes the beer well. The body is nice, oily, thick, could coat the mouth better, lacks a bit of pizzaz but finishes softly with a lightly dry bite.

Verdict: A very drinkable IPA from Revolution, delicious, balanced and fairly refreshing. It's not the most complex IPA, not a lot of depth, but very solid showing of the flavors and nothing is fighting for attention. Very nice 6 pack to have in the fridge, especially when it's less than a week old.
