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!

A: Pours a hazy to murky pale golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the edges of the glass and moderate straw yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy foamy bright white head that reduces to a couple of small patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit, tropical/mango, stone fruit/peach, citrus/orange zest, and dank resinous hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of bready + biscuit + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of bready + biscuit + caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit, tropical/mango, stone fruit/peach, citrus/orange zest, and dank resinous hops which impart minimal amounts of bitterness which fade away almost instantly leaving juicy citrus + tropical fruit hop flavors lingering.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially slightly crisp with a smooth mid-body and a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and very enjoyable. Refreshing with a really pleasant hop profile and I could easily have a couple of these.

Pours a hazy straw gold with a quickly dissipating white head leaving traces of lacing. Nose is very mild fruit,melon and citrus with floral hops. Taste follows with more grassy hops and a saison-like finish .Very subdued bitterness. Would be easy to drink a lot of this.

Canned 3/29/18, consumed 4/8/18

L: Uniformly hazy, cloudy straw color with a small head that left a little bit of lacing.

A: Bright but a bit light & muted - very nice mix of stone and tropical fruits with a bit of citrus as well.

T: Much more full, zesty burst of the fruity aroma. A little bit of piney, spicy, and grassy hop notes balance it all out.

F: Medium, pillowy soft, smooth, completely restrained bitterness, clean & dry finish. Exquisite, very refined mouthfeel all around.

O: Another tremendous offering in Revision's rotating hazy series. They really have the soft, amazing feel of their regular hazy IPAs down to a science so you can just focus on the aroma and taste differences from various hop profiles. Love the hop combo here.

Can from Boise Co-op. Pale straw color , hazy, small tight foam head. Aroma is light citrus, spice, mango. More tropical notes in the taste, some savory flavors too, a hint of Saison herbal-ness. Light, silky, sweet then savory, then gone.

Poured from 16oz can into 20oz tulip glass. Canned on03/02/18

Look: Light yellow, moderate haze. 1/3" white head formation. Moderate lacing on glass.

Smell: Really bright and fruity. Orange, tangerine, mango, papaya, pineapple, strawberry, and grapefruit all present on the nose. Not much of a hop presence, more fruit-forward.

Taste: Follows the nose. Citrus fruits up front, with orange and grapefruit dominant. Pineapple, mango, papaya and lemon grass present as well. Very subtle hop presence on the finish. Very nice.

Feel: Light in body, and somewhat thin but isn't a deal breaker. Just not as "juicy" as you would expect from the smell or taste. Low carbonation.

Overall: Really solid and easy drinking beer. As always, well done Revision. I am grateful to have tried it. Cheers!

Canned on 3/2, consumed on 3/10. Poured from a tall boy into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Pale, opaque, arylide yellow liquid lurks beneath a floral-white half-finger of fine foam, resolving to a lasting collar and thin surface slick; sandy lacing, average retention.

The aroma is preposterously dank with blueberry, tropical fruit, and grapefruit notes peaking through the resinous, marijuana/hash-like base.

Spicy, juicy flavor profile, again, suffused with marijuana up front with a cascade of mango, passion fruit, and berry notes fading into the medium-sweet finish. Bitterness is fairly low (40 IBUs) despite the intensity of the hop flavor.

Creamy, pillow soft mouth-feel with a faint bite to bring you back for another sip. Some warmth from the alcohol, and sticky on the lips.

Really unique IPA, certainly in the "NE" hazy/juicy style, but (perhaps thanks to the quantity of Galaxy?) above all, this is the most cannabis-like beer I've had.
