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.

Served in a tulip at Revolution 2/14/10. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!

A: Served a very clear, bright orange color with a creamy and clingy, bright white, one finger head that didn't last too long, but left a bunch of sticky lace in the glass.

S: Our first impressions of each of our glasses was a huge initial whiff of the sanitary cleanser that bars rinse their glasses with. Yuck. Luckily that aroma faded quickly and was replaced with delicious piney/citrus-y hops.

T: Same as above, but without the chemical cleanser. Big citrus hop and tropical fruit flavors that are balanced nicely by an excellent caramel/toasted malt flavor.

M: Sticky and juicy with a hint of hoppy astringency. Oily and resinous.

D: A superbly drinkable IPA. Revolution has hit the ground running and this beer may just force people to venture into the wild and wooly Logan Square neighborhood.
