On tap during a recent swing through Chicago...

A - A finger's worth of lush whimsical pure white colored head... An average bit of moderate paced carbonation... The color is a vibrant copper with a slight amber hue...

S - A strong malt base shines through... Lots a caramel and biscuity goodness.. The hops take a back seat in terms of the aroma... They are mostly a mix of earthy and pine with just a touch of citrus mixed in... Solid, but uninspired...

T - Terrific balance... Equal parts hops and malts... The hops take an a mix of piney, earthy, citrus goodness... The malt base is solid and highlighted by biscuit and caramel... Text book for the style and very well executed...

M - A bit on the lighter side of medium bodied... Moderate carbonation... Sleek... A bit sticky... Sturdy... Even a bit juicy... Even and consistent... Very nice...

D - A very pleasant surprise... I don't know too much about Revolution Brewing Company, but if this brew is any indication, they have a good thing going... This is a very good American IPA that teeters on verge of being outstanding... I highly encourage you to sample if given the opportunity...

Hazy warm amber color with a rich and sudsy head of white. Laces beautifully.

Herbal greens with yellow-white citrus notes. Hoppy fresh, it seems, with a backing of sweeter pale malt grains. Comes off slightly sweet, overall. A bit rind-y with showing white grapefruit and tangelo. Nice aroma.

Citrusy and zesty with rind notes. A little pith. Some oxidized turning taking place. A caramelization of the malts that doesn't really work. Biscuity, but a little past its prime, I feel. No canning date to say otherwise.

Smooth, but languid. Some lively carbonation going on here to help.

I imagine this could be a lot better, but it held up, somewhat. Would love to try another that was guaranteed fresh.

Draft offering of unknown freshness. Would like to try again in one of their packaged formats.

Serving Type - Can

Appearance - Yellow with a tan tint, 1/2 foamy head with nice lacing.

Smell - Huge pine aroma mixed with some grapefruit. Malts, lemons, sugars, a little floral note with some spices.

Taste - Starts out a with a big pine and grapefruit blast. Some added spices give it a herbal green tea-like flavor. Orange and lemon is also a noticeable flavor. Slight caramel malt backbone.

Mouthfeel - Tongue gets a lot of pine and grapefruit at first sip. Palate gets more herbal flavors, spices, and caramel malts. Aftertaste is herbal, piney and a malty.

Overall - Nice beer. Plenty of hops to make a big pine and grapefruit flavor. Really easy to drink. A little simple in its flavor but its really done well for what it is. Well worth giving a try.

Featuring Warrior, Chinook, Centennial, and Amarillo hops; has lots of floral and citrus elements edged with earthy pine; brings a tongue-numbing bitterness along with its medium-light body and ample carbonation. Tremendously drinkable at 6.5% abv. Totally recommended drinking.
