Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally brewed as the 100th beer at our brewpub, this strong pale ale packs a serious punch with massive hop flavor. Intense dry-hopping brings a deep, resinous, citrus blast reminiscent of cutting into a fresh bag of hop pellets.

Okay. Nothing special. Honestly, I'm a little disappointed.

Tastes not quite as good as it smells, which is a bit of problem since it didn't smell all that great. Nothing is off, really, but it's not coherent. Starts bitter and piney, gets syrupy and biscuity, ends with strong nodes of booze. Totally okay, meh.

Appearance: Pours a dark orange color. Just under a finger worth of head on the pour which left sticky rings behind. Normal amount of active carbonation for the style, present but kept in check.

Smell: Orange peel, medium bodied fruits, and sweet toffee on the front. There is a peculiar oily, syrupy aroma that is very noticeable on the body and lingers throughout. Solid pine bite on the back end.

Taste: Light to medium bodied tropical fruits hit the palate first. Solid caramel and nutty malt backbone make you believe this is still a pale ale. Malt heaviness pulls up on the back end and a lighter sweetness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: Very drinkable for what it is. Hops and malt take it easy on the palate. Carbonation is on the lower end.

Overall: A pretty solid beer but nothing really stands out and makes you want to keep coming back. A double pale ale is an interesting style but they pull it off here with a big malt forward beer. Okay but Revolution has many other hop options I would go with before this.

Pours a dark orangey tan color, The pour pretty much says it all. A west coast style heavily malt forward type DIPA. Thee is little to no flavor here except from the malts. there is a little bit of piney resin taste in the finish. I'll admit I'm not a fan of this type of DIPA but for this style it is an acceptable beer.
