Solid, solid, solid.... Great flagship beer for sure.... Crisp and clean and very well balanced... I could see myself drinking plenty of this if it was a local get.

Very nice beer all the way around. This one is exceptionally good at their Chicago pub.

Not a fan of the Ipas this brewery puts out and I'm not sure why the ratings are so high. The head brewer needs to go back to the drawing board with the malt selection, hop selection and amount used, and yeast selection plus temp at which the yeast goes to work. The taste is very crisp and lager like. Its missing that ale characteristic which can help make the hops pop. I'm just not a fan of the hops and house yeast chosen at all.

Poured from tap into pilsner glass, nice 1 finger head with good retention and lacing. Clear golden in the glass. Mango, citrus and pineapple on the nose. Taste initially sweet caramel, that leads straight into pineapple and citrus notes, mild bitterness on finish. Great mouthfeel

Canned on date of 05/05/17

Appearance - Pours clear and brilliant gold in color with an off-white, near two-finger width head. Good retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds and a good sized ring found along the edge of the glass. Decent lacing, with a few broken lines and some spotting.

Smell - Smells like hop candy; orange, grapefruit, floral notes, spice and a hint of pine backed by a solid caramel malt sweetness.

Taste - Hops don't disappoint here. Strong citrus upfront with a fair spice bite and floral notes as it approaches mid-taste. Faint pine. Malts stay mostly hidden until the back end, when a bit of bread and caramel peek through. Finish lingers with a decent amount of grapefruit pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with fair carbonation. Slick texture before a crisp, dry and refreshing finish.

Overall - Great, classic West Coast style IPA. It'd be an occasional buy if it were available in CA. Good job, Revolution!

On tap at Morris Tap and Grille. Pours a ruddy copper hue with moderate frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.

12oz. can into a Surly teku.

Nose is pine, perfume and fresh cut grass. Beer opens crisp with hints of bark, grass and a robust cane sugar backbone. This is what I'm used to before the wave of New England IPAs hit. Dry. Sap, resin and a biting, clean bitterness finishes the experience. Nice. Body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. Dry on the palate and dry going down. Really attacks the palate.

A real nice biting, bitter IPA. Worth trying and a great flagship beer.

A: dark orange amber color with a 1.5 finger off-white head

S: big pine, grapefruit, strawberry, pineapple, crackers, sweet malt. Very very juicy hops in here

T: pineapple, pine, strawberry, big bread and cracker. Some sweet malt in here as well towards the middle of the mouth. The end is a grapefruit bitterness

M: medium mouthfeel almost a bit silkily. Not a Tom of carbonation

O: the flavor isn't as juicy as the aroma, but it is a nicely harmonized beer. Good mix of hops and malt, and crisp. Nice representation of the style
