A: Bright tangerine color is lively in nature with a strong carbonation factor. The capping is thick and milky white, covering 2+ fingers high with a great resilience. Bright and juicy appearance.

S: Fresh wet grapefruit juice and citrus on nose, juicy peaches, and mangoes brings a tropical sweetness. Good strength, fruity and fresh with a longevity factor and finishes with a tart grapefruit peel hopping.

T: Crisp pale grains compose the base with a backdrop of fruity citrus. Tart oranges and tangerines has a flowery soft, dry citrus backing. Semi-dry peachs and sweet floral and citrusy orange resins and thick and juicy. Has a very crisp and refreshingly bright flavor.

M: Crisp mouthful, clean and spicy with a creamy soft feel. Medium body, sticky hop resins with a light tartness.

O: Outstanding drinkability, tart and juicy, lots of sticky hop resins to keep even the most snobbish of hop heads happy. Crisp delivery begs this for more. Great first sip and impression and keeps you happy from start to finish with a great range and balance of hop flavors and bitterness.

Grabbed a can at Belmont Station, which I consumed while watching the ducks beat up on the hapless UCLA bruins on the tele.

The beer pours a hazy golden amber color with very good head retention and considerable lacing. Truth be told, this beer looks more like a Belgian wit than a NE style iPA (not that that's a bad thing). On the nose, this is really something special. There is considerable tropical fruit, dominated by a fresh peach aroma. There's also something of creaminess on the nose as well that I found interesting, giving the beer a peaches and cream overlay to the considerable tropical fruit and light dank aroma. To say the least, this is a very nice smelling IPA. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, and again, the beer had something of a soft, creamy mouthfeel, with a long, lightly bitter finish. Alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile, and drinkability is exceptional. It would be entirely too easy to down several of these bad boys without even giving it a second thought.

Tried this right after a can of Orderville IPA, which is one of my favorite NE style IPA's from Modern Times. The PF completely blew the Orderville out of the water, making it taste light and almost watery by comparison. While I haven't always been a fan of some the Revision hazy IPA style, they really seem to have knocked it out of the park with this beer. Very, very impressive.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Canned 10/17/18.
L: Hazy bright yellow in color. If it makes sense, this is the color I prefer Revision beers to look like. Very pale yellow in color. The haze is evident. About 2 fingers of foamy white cap which rapidly settled leaving nice amounts of lacing.
S: Citrus forward, with hints of apricot, pineapple and mango. Hops are presented in a grassy fashion.
T: Follows the nose. Citrus heavy consisting of mostly orange and grapefruit. There is another fruit sweetness on the taste which resembles pineapple, mango and peach. Finish has slight hoppy/lemon grass complexity which meshes well with the fruit flavor. It is a classic Revision-tasting beer.
F: Light in bodied with moderate carbonation for the style. Not as pillowy as other Revision's, but enjoyable nevertheless.
O: Finally able to try this one, and it met my expectations. Those who know Revision beers know what I'm saying when I say it has that classic Revision flavor that we've all grown to love. Also, I appreciate the fact that its a 7.5 abv DIPA. I would drink this again and I am very grateful to have tried. Cheers!

Pours a hazy murky pale yellow with white head leaving moderate lacing. Nose is all kinds of tropical fruit with a bit of piney dankness. Taste follows with a decent hop bitterness. Big and juicy and quite delicious.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of papaya, cantaloupe melon, and orange citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has moderate to strong flavors of citrusy and tropical fruit hops with hardly any bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is perceptible.
O: This is a nice New England-style IPA that is packed with lots of aromas and flavors of citrusy and tropical fruit hops. It is rather drinkable because it hides its alcohol very well from the taste.

Can poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours hazy golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a light layer and laces nicely.

S: Lots of ripe tropical fruit and citrus, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

T: Juicy, citrus, pink grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon, tropical fruit, mango, passion fruit, and a hint of papaya and nectarine, maybe faint bubble gum, slight resinous note, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, soft on the palate.

O: I'm really enjoying this one. Definitely a favorite of their hazy beers I've tried so far.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a hazy, medium, golden straw with a two finger white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of mildly caramel malt, citrus and tropical fruit hops, lemon, pineapple, mango and a hint of pine. Flavor is neutral malt, citrus and lightly piney hops, mixed stone fruit, pineapple, mango and orange. Flavor tapers off a bit into a citrus rind and mixed tropical fruit finish with lingering, lightly resinous citrus rind hops with a renewal of the piney notes. Medium bodied with light to medium creaminess. This strikes me as a classic, right down the middle of the road profile for a NE IPA, with good tropical fruit, but interesting suggestions of pine and citrus. The flavor is initially interesting, but gives taste fatigue after a while, which is a minor problem I have with this style in general. Still refreshing and complex enough to keep my attention. Juicy.
