BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Revolution Brewing
Illinois, United States
revbrew.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Really nice DIPA, but I wouldn't be able to put this in the top tier. I think this is a super solid offering from Revolution, but it did lack that dank quality that I want in the style. Not much fruitiness or balance.

Pours a white head. Leaves some lace rings. Color is a clear dark gold.

Aroma: Lots of juicy hops and fruits. Floral and grapefruit citrus with orange. A bit of pineapple. Light caramel sweetness.

Taste: More juicy hops. Fresh, floral, and earthy. Tons of citrus. Grapefruit and blood-orange. Bready malts.

Mouthfeel: Sticky and bitter. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends sticky.

Overall, this was a very tasty beer. Reminded me a little of shorts blood orange wheatwine. I like this one.
