Big thanks to GreenMonster12 for this extra!

Transparent light amber body with a thick cream colored head. Aroma is of toasted malts, white pepper and a dash of citrus. Flavor is malty and yeasty with a peppery profile and some nice fruity flavors of white grape. Feel is bready and yeasty, tastes fuller than your average 6.8% BPA. Overall a nice Americanized take on the style.

12 oz. can dated January 29, 2015. Consumed and reviewed on March 10, 2015.

L: The beer is deep gold in color with a one-finger, off-white head that sticks around for a little bit before dissipating. Wispy lace, slightly hazy.

S: Nose encompasses fruity esters, sweet malts, citrus hop oil aromas, lemon zest.

T: Mango, honeydew melon, orange, honey, caramel malts. Earthy hops are present as are peppery spice phenols. Moderately dry finish. Nice drinker; refreshingly crushable.

F: Medium body, medium carbonation, alcohol is barely noticeable.

O: Solid offering from Revolution. The ABV can sneak up on you due to the beer’s high level of drinkability. Highly recommend for fans of Belgian beers as well as hopheads. This beer can appeal to many palates.

Aroma: Light lemon rind notes with a slightly funky Belgian yeast character. Light peppery character asserts as the beer is swirled and warms.

Appearance: Deep amber pour with golden edging. Low white head that retains well. Tight bubbles with moderate lacing around the edges.

Flavor: Assertive peppery and funky Belgian yeast character up front. Moderate melon and stone fruit character with a firm and earthy hop bitterness. Balance is to the hop bitterness. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste lingers with a peppery Belgian character.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. No creaminess, heat, or oily character noted. No astringency detected.

Overall impression: A firmly Belgian, American hopped ale. Immensely enjoyable and poundable. I'm biased as I love this brewery and this is another solid offering.
