A - Light golden hue with a stringy head that hangs around for a little bit before fading away into the beer.

S - Wonderful aroma. Makes you want to take a drink quick. A lot of spices here - most notably the blue agave, cumin, and caramel notes.

T - Very wheaty for what is essentially a spiced pale ale. You taste most of what you smell, though the blue agave is surprisingly subtle but this actually helps the overall taste of the beer. It tastes more citrusy than it smells. Carbonation is light. A tad pinch of hops apparent.

M - Just like you would expect, very smooth with a nice finish. Revolver uses their own well system out in Granbury and the water has a nice sodium level to it that provides this nice of a finish.

O - A great beer. Probably my third favorite of Revolver's. A perfect summer beer for a hot day. One of the better agave beers I've tasted.

Pours straw colored and slightly hazy color with a small foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Has a salty lemon type of aroma. Some agave. Taste follows the same. Very mildly tart at the end, though. Light bodied and somewhat refreshing. A good summer beer. Moderate carbonation.

Pours out straw in color. The head is white and a bit thin but with ok retention. Not seeing any lacing.

The nose has lemon and grains. There is a fresh hops bitterness to it as well. Its a bit floral.

The taste has little bitterness to it but more of a light honey sweetness with some lemon and floral notes.

The mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Its crisp and refreshing. Seems good for a summer BBQ.

I tri3d this at 54th street restaurant and drafthouse outside of Frisco. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

Hazy, golder lager look with minimal white head. Smells citrusy with little to no pine. Hops aren't in your face. Taste is average with a great balance of hops, grapefruit, and little pine. Feel's like one of the smoothest and most crisp IPAs out there.

Golden, cloudy. Moderate carbonation rising. Small white head.

Fruity, berry, slight bubblegum, sweet pale malt.

Hop bitterness is moderate, mostly fruity, berry and herbal. Solid malt background, sweet bread, biscuity. Yeasty character, bubblegum. Finish is slight bitterness, crisp. Medium-light bodied, well carbonated, smooth.

It doesn't taste like a typical American Pale Ale, it has a slight Hefeweizen character to it.

What can I say, it's a very interesting Pale Ale. Certainly it doesn't feel like a traditional PA. But because the bottle explicitly states Southwestern Pale Ale, I think it's a good addition.

It's a big on a sweeter side, not too hoppy. Although I've had people tell me otherwise. It's a bit harder to drink when it's warmer, it just has too much going on. I don't want to say that it feels thick but I could easily put it in a random 'American Ale' category because it's just so different. But when it's ice cold it goes down much smoother and has citrus finish. Like anything else from Revolver, I find it hard to drink many of their brews. I mean it does go down easy when it's chilled nicely but it's not a 6-pack killer, plus it has a kick at 6-7% I wouldn't consider it a good summer beer.

But overall, it's a very interesting brew. Out of all Revolver offerings I prefer Sidewinder if I have it. Would I buy it at current price point they have at HEB? I am not sure. Would I turn it down as free brew? No, I'd drink it happily.

This beer is so unique and different from other Pale Ales that you just have to give it a try.
