Jewel box has a rich hazy color paired along side a delicious NE aroma. This smooth, easy drinker provides just enough flavor without being overly juicy like many NEs. Expect this IPA to provide great taste, smell, and color while also standing out from the average NE IPA.

Canned 11/16/17

Appearance - Pours murky and tarnished gold in color with an off-white, finger width head. Fair retention before a thin, broken layer of suds sits atop the surface. A small handful of spots make up the lacing.

Smell - Fresh, leafy mint and mild citrus. Distant guava.

Taste - Follows the nose. Mild dank with lots of green leafy character. Almost minty. Distant citrus and pineapple zing. Mild guava creeps up in the finish. Aftertaste lingers with that leafy goodness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with slightly bitey carbonation. Slick, easy drinker. Quaffable.

Overall - A unique and tasty NE-Style IPA. I can see why people are high on galaxy hops. It gives a very distinct character.

16oz can poured into a high sided tulip glass.

Look is an extremely hazy yellow with a white head.

Aroma is hop heavy, extremely citrusy and herbal.

Taste absolutely explodes with flavor.

Delicious.

Look- pours milky pale gold with a 1.2 finger fluffy white head

Smell- candied oranges, tangerine, peach, coconut

Taste- not as sweet as the nose indicated; getting pineapple, orange, grapefruit and a little bitterness

Feel- medium bodied with decent carbonation, slightly bitter finish

Overall- really nice NEIPA with a solid fruity aroma and taste, along with a little bitterness

Can (can't read a date)

Murky pale orange topped by a healthy layer of clingy white foam. Smells like Galaxy juice: creamy passion fruit, pineapple, and grapefruit...very tropical. Continued creamy, juicy, tropical hops in the flavor. Pineapple, berries, peach, and a bit of grain mingling with a low bitterness. Soft medium body fluffed up with carbonation. These guys seem to be able to handle the juicy NEIPAs as well as the more West Coast style IPAs. I hope we continue to get fresh cans and bottles from these guys.

If you're not sure how you feel about Galaxy hops, then let this beer clarify that for you: they're awesome!

Canned 12/21/17, this is a pale golden beer in an opaque New England style, with a bright white head a couple of fingers high that drapes lines of lace behind... Softly fruity and smooth, with a mild bitterness, moderately sweet... plush and lush, full of ripe pineapple (without being tangy necessarily), something like passion fruit and guava, and a deeper, mild orange-like bottom... Really nice...

Poured from 16oz can into 20oz tulip. Canned on 2/22/18.

Look: Pours dark yellow, with plentiful amounts of haze. 1/2" frothy white head, with fair amount of lacing on the glass. Really great looking NEIPA.

Smell: No joke smells like juice. Pineapple, orange, guava, passionfruit, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine and mango present on the nose. Plenty of hop presence as well.

Taste: Follows the nose. Fruit forward, with hoppy back end. Really great beer.

Feel: Medium in body in weight. Soft feeling, somewhat medium carbonation. Very enjoyable.

Overall: This is a dang good brew, perhaps one of my favorites by Revision. Both juicy and full of hop forward-galaxy goodness. Well done Revision. Glad I was able to try this beer. Cheers!

Glass of grapefruit juice with a white head about a finger tall. Giant gobs of lacing stay behind. Smells like grapefruit juice and pince with a detectable sweetness. The taste is sweet with a lot of grapefruit and a giant pith and pine bitterness. There is a great balance here with a little hint of caramel as well. This beer is really good.

Pours a yellow and light orange color with some slight haze, about 1/3" white head. Aroma leans heavy on the honeydew green melon notes and other assorted melons. For being an all galaxy hopped beer, this one seems much lighter on the pineapple notes than many of the others (Fieldwork) often drop when using Galaxy hops.

Taste is also very green, I was wondering if this might be less green in a few days, which they were, but still dropping substantial melon notes compared to everything else. Not bitter, but I tasted more than the claimed 35 ibu, this one seemed like it was closer to 50. Malt base is the same for all of their hoppy beers essentially, probably some mild amount of golden promise.

So Revision is fully in the hoppy canned mode of making like 2 dozen beers that taste pretty similar, much like many breweries had recently done before them. This is one of the more unique ones they make, and they've all been pretty good, so tough to shit on them for following in others paths that aren't in Nevada. This one is definitely good, but a notch below Disco Ninja, Distance Haze, Dr. Lupulin etc. . .

Can dated 11/15/17 into a tulip glass.

L: Pours hazy orange bronze with 2+ fingers of pillowy medium density white head with moderate retention and left mixed lacing.

S: Very tropical, papaya, guava, pineapple, hints of bubblegum. Could be a bit more dynamic.

T: Follows the nose well with addition of subtle citrus, more bubblegum than on the nose. Finishes with mild bitterness and astringency, clears palate quickly.

F: Lighter bodied, moderate carbonation, slight tongue tingling from astringency, creamy and silky.

O: Another damn solid NE-style IPA from Revision! Takes the desirable attributes of Galaxy without being overly heavy on the bubblegum that can sometimes accompany that hop. Would definitely revisit, and will be on the lookout for more.
