12oz can poured into a pint glass. Pours a shiny transparent bright golden, nice fluffy white head that sticks around and fades slowly leaving nice lacing. Good looking IPA. The aromas are really nice. Lots of pine and ripe tangerines and oranges. Very floral and slightly tropical. Not overwhelming, but just smells very plesant. The flavors match the nose, but slightly fall off. Still tasty though. There's a subtle bitterness, not extreme, but refreshing. The malts are there, but still let the hop flavors shine. There's sharp pine resin notes. Nice flavors, but light and subtle, which can be a good thing in some cases. Mouthfeel is wonderful. It doesn't have a unique mouthfeel, but it's extremely light, smooth and the carbonation is spot on. It's on the lighter side of medium-bodied. The mouthfeel makes this beer extremely quaffable. Easy drinking beer. Alcohol goes unnoticed.

First time trying something from Revolution, and I like it. In the world of IPAs, this is much better than alot on the market. It's just short of being something outstanding, but it's easily a beer I'd enjoy again. Nice brew.

I bought this single 12oz can as part of a build-your-own 6 pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL, so $1.67 a can. Much cheaper than the $5 a glass price you pay at the brewpub. No freshness date.

The beer poured a crystal clear golden color with a 2-finger white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.

Nice citrus and floral hop smell that was heavy with grapefruit rind.

Delicious citrus hops with grapefruit being the dominant flavor, but with enough sweet malt to keep it balanced. Not really heavy on bitterness, but enough to let you know it's an IPA (70 IBU's).

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Goes down nice and smooth.

This is now my favorite grapefruit flavored IPA to date.

12 oz can poured into a Crate & Barrel craft beer glass

Nice golden color with the appropriate bright white head throughout the pour.

Some pine in the scent, but not an overly pungent brew.

Crisp and clean taste with a nice level of carbonation in the mouth. Very well balanced flavor. Light pine flavor is the most pronounced. Just a very smooth everyday IPA. Nothing really stands out. Smooth, drinkable, and flavorful.

Thanks to wyatt13 for this awesome can in a recent box!

Poured into a snifter. Pours a crystal clear gold-tinted orange. Thin off-white cap. Nose is bursting with freshly-ground hop cones. Big citrus notes, pine needles, a little alcohol.

Crisp feel. Easy drinking though for the bounty of flavors going on. Juicy fresh citrus hops. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit. Total citrus bomb! Love this one. A massive IPA that I would love to have on hand. Thanks, Wyatt!
