I've been itching to try Revision's beers since Revision broke off from Knee Deep Brewing. This is the 2nd DIPA from Revision that I've tried. Bought this one from BevMo 2 days ago. I hate that BevMo doesn't refrigerate its better beers; some of this DIPA's freshness was lost from sitting 4 months on a warm shelf.

This DIPA was bottled on 11/21/2017; ABV is 9%. This DIPA pours a slightly hazy orange with 1 finger of ecru foam. Moderate carbonation. Smell is a blast of dank, pine, citrus and tropical fruits -- frickin' hop heaven! The taste isn't quite as heavenly though, although it's nonetheless very good -- lots of citrus, orange peel, tangerine and tropical fruits against a moderate malt backbone.

When comparing this DIPA alongside Revision's "What What" DIPA, the main noticeable difference is that this DIPA has a slighter bigger malt backbone than What What. So, which is better? I prefer Citra Revenge by a nose for its bitterness. In fact, this DIPA's orange peel bitterness is standout. 85 IBUs; whereas What What is 65 IBUs. The difference in hop bitterness is noticeable.

Another very good DIPA from Revision.

Draft at the Taphouse. Clear, bright golden, small head, streaky lacing. Citrusy aroma, orange peel. Taste too, citrusy, juicy, the puckering bitterness. Stings a bit.

Clear medium gold body, tall white head, lace sheeting left behind... Great Citra hop showcase - aromas and flavors of sweet, dark citrus pith, shellacked with a bit of light resin... Impressions are orange, tangerine, and pine... Body is fairly light, very smooth and soft... I was thinking I wasn't such a predictable Citra fanboy anymore, but this beer is a good reminder about why this is such a popular hop... Bottled 09/25/17...

This is my favorite of the current crop of DIPAs from California. Well, I guess we can include Nevada too. It's rich and almost candy-like, but plenty tangy and balanced with a dark finish. Peach and apricot with some jammy sweetness.

Beautiful clear amber with fine-grained foam in the Crooked Line tulip. Sharp and sudsy in the mouth. Aroma of lime and mango. Pineapple finish. Rather bitter and a little woodsy aftertaste. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Krisp in downtown San Diego.

-clear amber-orange tap pour with a fine foam cap. Sticky rings mark each draw. Citrus aroma is light. The flavor is distinctly orange with a touch of resin. Finish is clean. I find this to be quite enjoyable!

Bottled date of 08/22/17

Appearance - Pours crystal clear and bright golden orange in color with a white, near finger width head that dies down quickly, leaving a thin, broken layer of suds and a fair ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell - Aroma is quite citrusy, mostly orange, but with some higher-end sweetness of tangerine catching the nose. Faintly dank.

Taste - Follows the nose. Citrusy flavor that sits somewhere between orange and tangerine. Just a touch of dankness, mostly found on the back-end. Faint bready malt backbone. This brew is all about the Citra hop though. Very clean presentation. Light pithy finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with fair carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a slightly dry finish.

Overall - Solid overall and a great example of a single hop brew showcasing the flavors that a particular hop can exhibit, in this case citra. That said, it's a pretty basic flavor profile and, as masterfully crafted as it is, I find myself wanting more after just half a glass.

Bottle poured into a snifter

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a thin layer and leaves some spotty lacing.

S: Big time dank, some orchard and tropical fruit, a touch of citrus, biscuity malt, and honey sweetness.

T: Dank, fruity, papaya, mango, peach, a little honeydew, citrus, orange, grapefruit, and lemon, a bit spicy, biscuity malt, and honey sweetness with just a touch of alcohol peeking through.

M: A bit on the fuller side of medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: This is textbook Revision. A little danker than I'd like, but that's sorta Jeremy's style. Still very nice beer.

Clear golden color

easy drinking, hides the 9.4 really well
