An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. “Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.” This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.

Served in an IPA Glass

Eyes
Poured a copper body with a nice amber glow. Clean and clear body with a decent amount of bubbles racing to the head. Bright white head, right around an inch thick. Sparse amount of lacing.

Nose
Nice notes of citrus from the hops. Earthy undertones. Biscuity backbone of malt with a touch of caramel to sweeten things up. Nice aroma but limited in intensity.

Mouth
Floral and citric hops hit the tongue first. Grapefruit-powered bitterness. Slightly sweetened grainy malts lingered in the background. Hops took an earthy turn toward the finish, leaving notes of lemongrass and pine. Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation.

Overall
Pretty straight-forward IPA. Perfect for any hop craving.

Thanks Adam for the hookup with this freshy. 12oz can packaged 10 days prior to consuming. It appears a clear copper color with soapy off-white head.

The smell is fruity and floral with caramel malt and some herbal/vegetal character. It tastes fruity and floral with some herbal bitterness and caramel malt and slight carbonic character. A nice fruity hop complexity and lingering oily bitterness.

This is medium bodied and modestly carbonated. Overall pretty standard ipa with no frills.

Another really nice pale ale from the guys at Revolution, but it didn't blow me away in any way. It was a really easy drink and was refreshing with a nice clean finish, but I wasn't overly impressed with the hoppiness.
