Notes / Commercial Description:
Revolution No. 009 is a showcase for “public domain” hops from the United States and Germany, offering a fresh twist on some not-so-familiar favorites. The lead hops in Revolution No. 009 include two varieties from the Pacific Northwest—one that provides exotic tropical fruit and coconut notes, and another that offers a balance of earthy pine and citrus qualities. The German hops round out the blend with a dimension of bright fruitiness.

Well balanced IPA. Nothing too fancy or wild; just solid.

L: brilliant gold pour supports a 15" white cap with fair to good retention

S: Melon aromas dominate seasoned by wet forest floor with resin, fruit, citrus and cantaloupe

T: The flavors start with a fruit cocktail feel featuring fruit, citrus, berry, lemon and melon with a hint of tart and as these flavors start to settle in, the beer dries out leaving a very pleasant lingering bitter

F: body is just under medium and the carbonation is medium plus

O: This is not a heavy beer but it is packed with fruit and a nicely balancing bitterness

Overall, I love this series. That being said, this version was very subtle to me
I understand the utilization of European hops, however u thunk this can was old and retained almost no hop aromas. Drank more like a pale lager. Number 10 had a much more tropical feel and was generally more hop forward.

I liked this brewer and this series esp when I can add to a mix six at wegmans at 10.99 per.
a) Slightly hazed light golden with energetic head and scads of lace.
s) Too subtle and more of an APA. Yes, I get the coconut and the grass.
t) More pine, tropical fruit, yellow fruits (pineapple and grapefruit, with a dusting of coconut and pine.
f) Clean bitter finish, bright, prickly feel, and upper beer. Good first beer of the evening.
o) Providing these hop glimpses in the series is great - none of them a mainstay but all delicious test pours, this leaning more toward APA like Dales. Nice. Try 1 of each.

Straw with a hint of haze, majorly carbonated, and topped with a finger of white head.

Smells of catnip, dill pickle, a dankness and a slightly pear like fruitiness.

Tastes of yellow jello, a big dankness, and green leaf.

Light body, very dry, puckering and tannic body with moderate carbonation.

Got at World Market in Redding, CA, drinking here Aug 7th, 2018. Nicely hoppy variation.

Pours a very clean, clear light yellow color with small amount of eggshell foam, minimal lacing. The aroma has a nice blend of hops & pine with fruit. This beer has a good hop-forward taste without being a palate-wrecker, along with a fruitiness that I cannot quite out my finger on....lemon and watermelon maybe(?). It finishes very clean and crsip, almost bearing resemblance to a lager, that was very refreshing on a hot summer day. I have become a believer in the Luponic Distortion series and cannot wait to try the other offerings in this series. Yet another great offering from Firestone Walker.

I'm impressed. These are not my favorite hop flavors but the package is quite good. Very pale for style. Almost lager looking in it's clarity and large white head of many pils type lagers. The aroma is clearly no a pils. Wonderful hop mix of earthy herbal and fruit. Fresh and pleasant.
Taste resembles the aroma with a hop forward earthy herbal mixed with fruit (mostly non-citrus, but not without that too). Fine streak of bitterness blends and mixes well. Neutral malt flavor balances. A little light on the feel but buttress with carbonation.
Just a nice solid drinking IPA with interesting hop mix and good bitterness balance.
