Notes: Collaboration recipe with Shoe Tree Brewing.

It's a simple universal fact that ninjas are badass. You know what else is badass? Revision beer. Our buddies at Shoe Tree Brewing kicked around ideas with us to develop this tasty, tantalizing, karate chop in your freaking mouth. Kaleidoscopic nunchuck hits to the dome with Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic, and Amarillo. Stealthily slaying your taste buds, one sip at a time.

Picked this up in a discounted mixed 4 pack -
Couldn’t beat the price to be honest and bought it cold :)
Poured a creamy lemon with a big head and huge lacing - smell was tropical yet smelled more like a grapefruit to me , so maybe a little zesty -
Great beer overall that looks amazing, but a little too much zest -
Recommended !
CHEERS !!

Had Disco Ninja, my first beer from Nevada, poured from pint can, bottom stamped (apparently) canned on "10/14/20" and "BEER DANCE," muled to Mississippi by my little brother, into nonic pint.

Pours bright hazy gold, with 2-finger near-white head, with good retention, leaving thick, etched lace down the glass. Very sweet juicy aroma off the pour, which continues after joined by some resin. Begins with full mouthfeel and big melon, over light malt, before big juicy sweet citrus takes over, leading into a moderately crisp and finally mildly resiny finish.

This NEvadaIPA has a wonderfully juicy aroma and multiply fruity flavor, with a resiny Nevada desert finish.

If you like fruity NE IPAs this is your beer. Smells and tastes like oj & papaya. I personally thought it was too sweet and not enough carbonation for a beer. It really tastes like you're drinking a bitter juice. Not my favorite but not bad at all.

Pours a hazy light orange with soft, fluffy head.

Smell is juicy with notes of citrus, mango, passionfruit and a hint of lemongrass.

Taste is juicy and soft but with a nice, pithy bitter bite. Notes of mango, citrus, passionfruit and a hint of grass.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and pillowy with good carbonation.

Overall, an impressive state-tick for Nevada, really nice IPA.

Pale, yellow-gold haze, formidable frothy head that holds up. Mango, pithy OJ, some pineapple and kiwi. Smooth and soft on the palate. Some bitterness at the end. Really nice neipa, first can wasn’t as good for some reason, second left me satisfied.

16oz can into a pint glass. No freshness dating that I could find. Tavour shipment.

Looks like a standard NE ipa, good head which retains well leaving some nice lacing

Light fruit aroma.

On tasting, it's kind of a hybrid. Looks, smells, and feels like a NE ipa. But there is a lasting grapefruit and piney bitterness, reminiscent of a West Coast ipa. And I'm enjoying this.

Mouth soft, finish grapefruit.

Overall, an enjoyable drink, haven't had a grapefruit hit like this in a while.

This is a good beer, I enjoyed it. I wish it was a little sweeter, it has a bit of that westcost bite. Especially at the bottom of the glass. Bought on draft in Boise

L: An opaque light apricot hue with some sticky white foam leaving some lace behind, while an equal share slinks back into the glass.

S: Mellow aromas is stonefruit, melon, and earthy pine. Rather sweet on the nose.

T: Really nice with a bitter bite and more pine resin on the palate.

F: Smooth and off-dry. The weight is not overdone and the carbonation sits just right. My favorite point on the brew.

O: Overall a nice brew. The aroma may be as stealthy as a ninja, but the mouthfeel and piney nature come in for the kill. The lasting impression is that good.

Revision is consistently good and this one is no exception. Bright cloudy yellow pour, white head. Grapefruit, mango, lemon, pineapple with dank and piney hop finish. Taste has more hop bitters to it on the finish, add some peach, melon, and floral notes, but nothing too intense, complex but not overbearing. Feel is well rounded, juicy and dank to lighter degrees, easy drinking yet full.

This beer pours a beautiful hazy yellow color.

I get a nice smell that makes me want to drink and keep on drinking this beer. The flavor... in my opinion didn’t live up to the smell. This is not a bad beer it just my opinion.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy light yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of gooseberries and mangos are present in the smell.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of gooseberries, mangos, oranges, and stone fruit along with notes of pine.
M: It feels medium-bodied and juicy on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This New England IPA is very juicy and has complex aromas and flavors.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

16oz canned 1/20/20. Opened 2-14-20. Can doesn't reference "Shoe Tree" - only Revision Brewing Company.
1/4" white head with short retention, falls to a sparse cap and ring. Opaque and pale yellow NEIPA. Wispy lacing.
Pineapple, citrus, peach, pine, and heavy dose of green weeds - falls in the dank aroma category.
Tropical fruit - pineapple, peach, citrus. Clean, fresh, and no yeasty character that sometimes mucks this style up for me.
Bright entry, full but soft mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Medium length, citrus and tropical fruit, off dry finish.
Very good. I was lucky enough to get 6 different singles of Revision to try, halfway through and I can report these guys are killing it!

Probably my favorite beer from Revision so far. Looks great - more golden/yellow than orange, with a nice frothy head. Smells like citrus fruit, I'd say the nose is better than the taste on this one (it really pops). Light bitter orange taste, medium mouthfeel that works well.

very very hazy, but also vert very good, another one from these guys, who continue to amaze me making dozens and dozens of ipa types, all of which somehow have their own identity. this one looks a little less cleaned up than i generally prefer, but it impressively has almost no hop burn at all, and the hops that are in this can all more or less be appreciated on their own, and also as part of a larger whole. galaxy and mosaic seem obvious in the nose, while i get a lot more of the citra in the taste, especially at the end, its not at all an unconventional or unique hop bill, but some of the flavors they create together are a little more pungent and dialed in than they often are in this combination, and i really appreciate that. its got a little bit of a weed thing going on, the cat pee from the mosaic, and subtle lemony dish soap too, but it also has gorgeous mango, orange, and lemongrass notes, and has a smooth and round, if a bit filling, mouthfeel from all the protein in the grain. its almost dry, resinous, and very fruity. high carbonation, a little bit green but it doesnt burn, and overall something i would buy again. i am thankful to be living in a place where we are seeing these beers regularly, this is way ahead of the curve, as has almost always been the case with these guys!

Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Some spotted lacing on the glass but not much. The smell has a really nice dank aroma coming off of it with subtle melon notes as well. The taste is good, pretty juicy with a lingering bitterness in the finish. The feel is smooth and soft. Overall it’s another solid offering from Revision.

Sweet orange citrus hoppy nose on this one! Taste follows well with a nice kick of citrus bitterness. This changes into a very slight hop burn on the swallow. Nice depth and soft mouthfeel for a single. Good stuff!

Can dated 3/29/18 consumed today at the beach in OBX! I wish I had it fresh because with a couple months of age on it it’s still tastes solid! Pours straw hazy yellow with a capped white head. Smells of citrus and subtle amounts of exotic fruits! Tastes matches with a touch of cracker malt! Finish is soft and velvety!
