Pours a dark golden orange with a thick pillowy white head that leaves a lot of webbed lacing on the pint glass. A wonderful Belgian pale ale, with a little clove, that is very easy to drink. Picked this up as a single in the pick a mix section at Randall's in Fairview Hgts, IL.

Tastes very similar to 80 acre, which I like.

Golden hued, nice lacing, bartender f---ed up the pour but looks like a nice tight, bright white head.

Good carbonation which I like.

Overall a very solid beer. Big thumbs up.

Had on tap. Pours clear, gold in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is English pale malt, dry white wine, pear, and Belgian spices with light tropical fruit hops. Medium bodied, and slight bitter. Makes for a clean and delicious treat. Really well done.

Look: Pours a hazy, orange gold color with a frothy two finger off white head.

Aroma: Very belgian on the nose. Lots of bubblegum and clove on this one. Sweet sensations of pale malt, banana, and honey in the background, along with mild notions of bitter floral hops.

Taste: Quite nice. Upfront you get a clean, bittersweet honey and banana cream flavor, along with peppery notes of clove and mild potpourri. Mid palate flavors of juicy tropical grapefruit and orange emerge and co-mingle with a very delicate, biscuity taste from the crystal malt. Finish is sweet but dry with a lingering taste of banana, vanilla and rosemary.

Feel: Mid weight with low carbonation. Sweet, floral and vaguely dry on the palate.

Overall: Another exceptional beer from the brewery, it's one of the better belgian IPA's I've had the pleasure of tasting. This one has a significant belgian yeast character while also providing some juicy tropical hop zing to complement it. The two styles work very well together.

I haven't had a bad beer from Revolution yet. Mostly due to the fact that I get their beers fresh, since they date their cans, which I give them two big thumbs up for having the courtesy to do - It's always nice to see that breweries value their customers enough to provide that kind of information, and in light of that they have gained a loyal customer. Cheers!
