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

Pours light gold, not quite opaque. Hazy. Single finger of white head soon fades to a cap. Lacing is moderate.

Smells of bright citrus, very zesty, a little tropical.

Taste is also bright citrus. Tangelo, grapefruit, maybe a little lemon. A hint of pine. Little bitterness. Mostly juicy and fruity, with a pale malt backbone. Very little discernible alcohol flavor.

Mouthfeel is crisp, rather than soft. Good carb, easy drinking.

Far too light and refreshing for its abv. Tastes like summer in a glass.

Really like the beer's title. Don't understand how this beer got by the PLCB(Pennsylvania Liquor Control board) watchdogs. I purchased the beer in Philadelphia. The title is interesting!

Grabbed a 4-pack of this after a long night at Revision Brewing Company. Was one of the few Revision beers that I hadn’t tried yet. Can description read, “Embracing the no-holds-barred, pure, dirty, clean, crass culture of the greatest place in the world, this beer is a reflection of the city it was born in.It's real, down-to-earth and unfiltered. You don't buy this beer, you earn this beer. This beer is Reno as Fuck.” No mention of the hops as far as I could tell.

Poured a medium yellow hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of off-white frothy head. Slow moving bubbles coming up along the sides of the glass. Excellent foamy spiderweb lacing. Outstanding retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled stone fruit, passion fruit, pineapple, mango, tangerine, grapefruit, floral and guava. No hops were mentioned, but would guess Mosaic and Citra are involved. More hops from the can. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted similar to the nose with passion fruit, stone fruit, pineapple, guava, mango, tangerine, grapefruit, floral, papaya and hints of melon. Was not tasting anywhere near 8.4 pct. ABV. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Long, juicy finish. (Feel - 4.50)

Another solid offering from Revision. Outstanding. (Overall - 4.00)

Poured into a pint glass. A bright hazy yellow color with a medium sized white foamy head. A bright fruity aroma with berries, tropical fruit, oranges, and faint pine. The taste was nearly all fruit but complex with all the above flavors. A nice resiny quality as well. Medium bodied with a slightly off dry finish. Outstanding.

Golden apricot hazy. Two-knuckle, tight, Foam head

Earthy dank, pineapple, orange, faint mango and melon

Some bitterness and booziness. Sticky and slightly soft, medium body

It’s good but similar to many others. maybe it’s better on tap.

16oz can poured into an IPA nonic.

A: Hazy dull gold with tons of rocky white head and lace.

S: Ripe orange and pineapple, ripe stone fruit, apricot, herby dankness. Hella-good nose.

T: More of the same, overripe citrus fruit flesh, apricot and peach, papaya and mango, green melon, faint pine herby-ness, middle-of-the-palate bitterness is nominal and holds the tastes together, extremely drinkable.

MF: Smooth body, medium-to-full, moderate carbonation, simple dryness.

O: A fantastic NEIPA, Revision KILLS it with these.

good to try this one finally after all the hype and talk, especially on tap, glad they have kept making it, and its quite well refined for a hazy, but it doesnt stand out of the revision lineup of these type of beers for me, and it certainly seems a little derivative with simcoe, citra, and mosaic, i mean, arent there enough of these already. well, i suppose it makes sense for these guys to throw their name in the hat as well on that blend, they do it better than most, no surprise. this is whitewashed yellow looking with a short white head, aroma of watermelon rind, meyer lemon, canned pineapple, and under ripe green melon. fresh as can be and very appealing. some wheaty character to the base, soft and maybe even some unmalted pale grain in here, its got body and flavor but no sugar which i love, and its alcohol is almost invisible here. another thing about it is that it has some bitterness for a hazy, its not all dry hopping, and i dig that for sure, it lingers some, especially with how dry the finish is for a beer this strong, it stays there, briefly albeit, but it does, not for the meek. its nice to be bold and drinkable at the same time, real hard to do in this style, and even harder to make something with this hop blend stand out, even a little bit, and even if for some other reason than the hop profile. i think ill always be a revision guy now, even when they dont floor me they still make rock solid hoppy beer...

16oz can - can't make out the canned on date but I'm confident of it's freshness and providence.
1 finger white head on a pale gold and opaque hazy DIPA. Good retention on agitation...good lacing.
Getting a big dank whiff up front over unripe melon and stone fruit also not ripe. Tart quality to all the hop fruit character.
Reno AF and weedy AF.
Unripe melon, lots of bitter citrus skin quality. A noticeable bread dough malt flavor underneath the hop onslaught.
Medium body, soft mouthfeel. Low to medium bitterness. Lengthy finish.
Good to very good.

Murky and hazy yellow with a finger of white foam, lacing. Grassy citrus, melon and pineapple, with lighter dankness for revision in the nose. Taste is more fruity than anything, add peach, guava, mango to the nose fruits, hops finish but not potently. Pith and pine textures within the fruit haze, light body, highly drinkable. Good beer, name makes sense, whenever my friend had to travel to Reno for work he would say the f-bomb too!

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

Poured from 16oz tall can into a tulip. Canning date appears to be 1/20/20.

Appearance: hazy yellow hue with a finger of frothy white foam atop. A good looking exemplar of the style.

Smell: a bit on the sweet side, with hops that are green, grassy and dank. This beer doesn't have the tropical aromas I love in the style, but nonetheless it smells quite good.

Taste: hops have a super dank quality with a very low bitterness indeed; add this to the touch of sweetness and this beer is really working for me.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a good carbonation and a very nice creaminess. I like it a lot.

Overall: the flavor of this beer won me over after some doubts over the aroma -- definitely a tasty brew.

Poured from the can, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with great head retention and good lacing. On the nose this beer smells terrific. There is a huge tropical fruit aroma of mango, peach papaya and pineapple with mandarin orange as well. Given the nose, the flavor profile is something of a disappointment. Because this beer has virtually no bitterness, the sweetness from the tropical fruit is a bit over the top. Alcohol is also pretty noticeable, and again I think the sweetness in this beer has a lot to do with that. It also hurts the beer's drinkability as well. Mouthfeel seems pretty full otherwise, and there's no doubt this beer delivers plenty of flavor.

Shrug. This is a decent NE style IPA/DIPA, but the lack of bitterness really mars what is otherwise a pretty enjoyable drinking experience.

Fresher than a soiled dove after her morning spritz, this one is promising. Hazy like a Tijuana sunrise, this one is talkin’ to me. Oooo, yeah! Flavors pop like your lil brother’s rice crispys.

Not the top dog in the fight, but not bad.

Can dated 11/30/17, more formal review to come as this wasn't quite as cold as I'd like to start.

Nose is nice but mute, tropical and subtle citrus. Taste follows but brings more prominence of the citrus. Thinner mouthfeel with silky tongue feel make this very easy drinking, almost too much so for the 8.4% ABV.

It's another solid NE-style recipe from Revision that seems to have a new one each week. Right now I'd have it below in the realm of Tahoe Haze though slightly better for my palate and preferences was good but nothing earth-shattering.

Update, colder brew had smoother flavor transitions, changed original 4.0 flavor rating to 4.25.
