BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Revision Brewing Company
Nevada, United States
revisionbrewing.com

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
There’s a problem with this beer; it’s most commonly available in 12 ounce cans, 16 ounce glasses, and 22 ounce bottles. Of course, if you’re lucky you can snag it by the 64 ounce growler. Or even better, the 661 ounce keg or the 1,984 ounce keg. Now we’re talkin’. Loads of late-hopping creates massive flavor. Simcoe and Mosaic hops battle for domination on the palate; you win.

16oz pint at THG.

A: Clear medium-dark golden with a half inch of thick and greasy white head that didn't recede at all in the few minutes leading up to me finally taking a sip. A fluffy thick head lasted the whole beer through. Great retention. Sheets of sticky lace clung to the glass after each sip. Textbook how a hoppy beer should look.
S: Resinous and piney nose with tons of hop oil. Smells fresh and greasy.
T: Greasy hop oils coat my tongue, citrus and resinous hops, kiss of pine. Malt is slightly toasted and caramely. Fresh and greasy, pine and resinous bitterness. Citrus flavor. Mild spice.
M: Medium-full body, greasy and slick mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Drying finish.
O: Quaffable and smooth beer. Fresh and easy to drink. Looks great in the glass!

Poured from standard sized bottle into 20oz Sauvin glass. Bottled on 11/06/17 (not fresh by any means).

Look: Light amber in color, with apparent transparency. Achieved about 2 and a half fingers worth of a frothy white head, which dissipated rapidly. Loads of residual lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hop presence on the nose, making a somewhat green/grassy smell. I get some citrus fruits, like grapefruit, orange and lemon. Slight mango and papaya presence.

Taste: Lemon forward, reminding me of a lemon herbal tea. Maybe due to the age of the beer, but I am not really enjoying the taste, at least for my liking. It isn't as hop forward as would be expected in a double ipa. Syrupy taste to the beer as well that is hard to describe. There is an herbal, florally flavor that lingers in my mouth afterwards.

Feel: Medium in body, with moderate carbonation.

Overall: It could be just an old bottle, or its just me. It was given as a gift, so I can't really complain, but what I am tasting now isn't that enjoyable. I would like to try some fresh, since I am a huge fan of alot of other Revision offerings. Regardless, I am grateful to have tried. Cheers!

Bottle from Brewers Haven. Somehow missed rating this. Big, bold hoppy DIPA, as expected from these guys. Bitter, yet smooth. I love the way these guys use their hops

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 3/13/18, consumed 3/29/18

Poured crystal clear golden amber with a nice thick head that left tons of great lacing.

Aroma is thick dank, piney, and floral hops with some very bright citrus and tropical fruits. Very full and oh so enticing.

Taste follows aroma. The tropical fruits come out more; very strong and danky.

Mouthfeel is a bit heavy, bitterness is really solid, booze is there, noticeable, but not overdone.

Overall, an impressive DIPA - one of the best everyday ones out. If you like you strong imperial WC-IPA more tropical than citrusy, this is for you. Can certainly face up to any and every DIPA out.

Pours a clear goldish yellow. Hoppy aroma with obvious hop forward taste. I’ve had more balanced double and even triple ipas in the past but this one is definitely worth checking out.

Pours a clear yellow with medium carbonation. Very clear beer, aroma is very hoppy. Taste is fruity, citrusy, a little pine with maybe a honey-like sweetness. Booze is a little evident so this is not one to drink quickly. Overall a pretty enjoyable DIPA. Not too ambitious but solid execution.

Pours a darker golden yellow with professional clarity and 1/2" white head. Aroma smacks of that mosaic rage, dry hopping definitely going on here.

Bitterness firmly entrenched and tight with Simcoe like amplification. Light simple cracker malt, high carbonation and a dry finish. Very prototypical. They went with a west coast base but threw the Mosaic new breed hop in, but then a middle ground proprietary bittering hop like Simcoe. At about $3.50 a bottle, its a decent gem. There's some astringent bitterness and I would guess this weighs in around 75 ibu.

There's so many very good hoppy beers from Revision in a short amount of time. This one hides the alcohol decently and has a good (and dangerous) crushability factor to it. They carry it at Winco, which is always a bonus, you know you'll get it at its cheapest price that way and it usually is refrigerated too. Helps with the value which translates into the overall score.

On draft at Old Chicago, delivered in a snifter, Revision's DIPA had a darker golden hue than some. Taste was purely tropical hoppy goodness!! Nice and dry finish, really impressed with Revision Brewing Company!

A: Pours a slightly darker than medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate burnt orange + amber colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy beige head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a very thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit, pine/resin, cat piss, and dank hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + caramel + toasted malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there is a just shy of moderate flavor of biscuit + caramel + toasted malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit, pine/resin, cat piss, and dank hops which impart a light to moderate amount of bitterness which lingers for a moderate amount of time.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation, Crisp.

O: An enjoyable DIPA with a lighter mouthfeel than I expected - I find the cat piss hop presence to be a touch off putting but other people don't get that same presence. Alcohol is well hidden.
