BEER INFO

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.

Had this on tap in a pint. This is a nice hoppy beer w/ citrus notes throughout the taste w/ a bitter after taste. I consider this an average pale ale from a excellent brewery w/ tons of incredible pale ale options. So from Revolution's line up of pale ales this definitely falls into the average category.

Amber in color, bitter and malty - kinda like a Stone Arrogant Bastard. Not what I was expecting for an IPA, but not in a bad way. Similar to Stone AB, I enjoyed it, but wouldn't seek it out.

Pours a rusty orange with an off-whitecreamy, two-finger head. Lots of action with the carbonation. Already leaving lacing from the head dissipation. Smells of piney citrus funk with much malt. Very Carmely and sweet taste. The bitterness is not overpowering. Kind of a honey-carmel taste coming through. A medium body in which there are two separate finishes of sweet and bitter. A beer in which the elements do not quite come together to compliment one, organized taste.

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.
