Features Citra, Crystal, Centennial, and Chinook hops as well as Warrior for more bitterness; 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.

A - Pours a straw yellow with a tint of golden orange with a pretty sizable 3 finger, near-white head. Retention is great, lacing is very nice as well.

S - Citrus, maybe a hint of pear and some pineyness - hops are lacking.

T - Ahh there they are, a really nice combination of hops bursting with sweet tropical/citrusy juice flavors, not super dry bitter more citrus and fruit than bitter and dry. Taste is relatively constant right through the aftertaste - mostly fruity with nice diminishing hoppy bitterness. Leaves my mouth salivating a bit!

M - Medium bodied or lighter, carbonation is a little weak but still rather refreshing considering.

O - Pretty tasty - I fear I may have let it get cold too quick (in the freezer) - didnt freeze but it probably wasnt too far away from it :/. Still very tasty, fruit forward ipa. Great extra! Thanks boilermakerryan!

Pours on the darker copper color side for an ipa. Smells like citrus, candy, and pine. Taste is super balanced.....the malt and slight sweetness do an excellent job of rounding out the hop profile. Medium body with medium heavy carbonation. Nothing spectacular.....but a very well rounded, super drinkable ipa.

On-tap @ Rev. Poured into Mug Club goblet.

A - Pours orange in color, white head, lots of sticky lacing, thin filmy cap with some spots here and there on top.

S - Citrus, pine, bitter hops, very lights on the malts (if any).

T - Solid dose of bitter hops, pine, lots of citrus, tangerines, oranges. The bitter hoppy notes aren't overpowering, which is nice, just about right for my taste. Nice bitter floral finish.

M - Light, crisp, good carbonation, oily finish.

D - A solid IPA that I will continue to enjoy when I hit the pub. Revolution is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to visit when I want some great food and excellent beer.

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.

A: appears crisp clear golden with white head, some lacing present

S: citrusey and piney with some bready notes sitting beneath, very nice

T: the front is loaded with juicy citrus hops, nicely integrated malt profile that lends notes of caramel and toast that marry nicely with the juicy hop profile

MF: a bit sharp with high carbonation, medium body

D: very solid IPA from a very solid brewpub. Definitely worth checking out- Revolution knows how use their hops!

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.
