Revolution Beer LLC "A Little Crazy"
12 fl. oz. can, "FILLED: 12-15-2017 12:45:45" and sampled on 07-18-2018
$2.49 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's poured a beautiful head of off-white foam atop a hazy deep golden / light amber body. The aroma expresses a combination of biscuity malt, Belgian yeast, and softly citrusy hops (mainly orange & lemon but with a spike of grapefruit as well). The flavor follows. It's nicely balanced and neither the hops nor the yeast character are too strong to not let the biscuity and slightly honeyish malt get its fair share. A median bitterness of around 35 IBUs balances it and it finishes dry with a light touch of yeasty phenols, mineral, and spice. Is that some coriander in the background? If not, and I'm certainly not sure it is, but if not it comes across in the same way with a little bit of woodiness to it. Whatever it is it's nice. In the mouth it's medium bodied and gently crisp-then-smooth across the palate. Looking back the head retention has been great but the lacing could have been a little bit better. I'd say maybe that's the glass but I had a beer in the same glass earlier that showed better lacing so I'm pretty sure it's beer clean. Overall nicely done and highly drinkable! I happen to be brewing a beer much like this right now (no citrusy hops... although now that I think about it... ) and I would not be disappointed if it turned out close to this.

A little crazy pours a golden copper color, with a long lasting lacing head. Rich aroma, with sweet earth notes. Flavor has a nice creamy and sweet candy backbone, with just a hint of hops, a a slight bitterness to balance this beer out. Good body and feel. Overall, this is a fanatic BPA, not as sweet as others.

Love a good Belgian pale ale. Most are hop-forward with hint of yeast, this one is 6.8% and packs some Belgian punch!

Somehow, I drive up to Chicago for a can release at Revolution and end up only drinking this on draft at a fried chicken joint down the road, rather than having anything at the taproom party. In any case, a highly refreshing Belgian pale with hops that are uncharacteristic but complementary, adding a nice citrus brightness.
