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!

Canned 11/30/17

Appearance - Pours hazy and dull orange in color with an off-white, near two-finger width head. Fair retention before dying down to a thin layer of suds with a serious build-up encircling the edge of the glass. Fair lacing, mostly made up of broken lines and small spotting.

Smell - Grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, passionfruit and a touch of dankness.

Taste - Lovely juiciness. Orange, pineapple and a hint of mango upfront. Slight grapefruit. Slightly bready undertone. Punchy fruity hop finish before mellowing out in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with fair carbonation. Smooth drinker (8.4% doesn't even register) with a dry, slightly chalky finish, as par for the style.

Overall - Tasty NE-Style DIPA that's as juicy as it is punchy in flavor. It's good to see Jeremy Warren has seen the light, even if that light has a greenish tinge to it; the man knows hops.

The beer pours out a full on hazy golden yellow orange color, with 2 fingers of white head------------the aromas are of pungent orange and tangerine with lesser peach and pine----------the flavors are of orange, breadiness, pine, citrus pith and grapefruit, the beer has a thin mouthfeel with a light to medium bitterness on the finish------ overall this beer was nice, the aroma and appearance were the strong points, the flavor was a little on the lighter side with the mouthfeel on the thinner side

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 poured into a Russian River Brewing Co pub glass

A: Pours hazy golden amber with a frothy off white head that hangs around for a while before settling to a firm layer and leaving some thick lacing.

S: Lively citrus, tropical and stone fruit, a little pine, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

T: Citrus, grapefruit, orange, and lemon lime, tropical fruit, passion fruit, guava, papaya, apricot, peach, and a hint of melon, resinous pine, slight floral notes, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness. A touch of alcohol can peek through as it warms.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, soft on the palate, with just a touch of alcohol as it warms.

O: Good stuff.I need to know how they got that label approved.

The pour yields a very hazy sunshine-colored beer with a billowy white head. Pop the top on the can and dank citrus hop aromas literally leap from the pint can - grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit. A lovely bouquet indeed.

The aromas translate even better to the taste, with the grapefruit and passion fruit more forward than the pineapple. I have no idea what the hop bill is for this (and I expended some effort to secure that information), but I’d guess Mosaic is a solid suspect based on the color, aroma, and taste.

I love the Mosaic varietal, so this beer is in my sweet spot. Very well done, IMHO.

Canned 6/27/2018. I have had once, but was too rushed to enjoy it and write a decent review. Let's dive in.
L: Pours a bright hazy golden straw yellow in color. Evident haze, but isn't murky. About a fingers worth of head which dissipated quickly. If I swirl the beer in the glass vigorously, the head can somewhat be revived, forming a ring. Minimal glass on the glass. Look wise, the color is very appeasing.
S: Man the nose on this is full of fruit flavor. Passion fruit, pineapple, guava, papaya, acai, mango and banana all present on the nose. Citrus fruits are there as well, primarily consisting of orange and grapefruit. Hop wise, it smells closest to lemongrass, though for a DIPA it is very minimal. The smell is straight fruit. I do pick up on some peach and apricot, which is a nice addition.
T: Follows the nose. Papaya, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, guava, lemon, citrus peel, apricot and peach all present on the nose. Perhaps even a hint of watermelon and banana. The finish is slightly bitter, with a lingering banana, pineapple and mango flavor. Man I am loving this. A proper NEIPA flavor wise. Hop presence noted but again very minimal.
F: Light borderline medium, with moderate carbonation. The feel isn't as thick or pillowy as other NEIPAs, but still very enjoyable. Smooth and very enjoyable.
O: Man, Revision just is making some great hazy's. This is no exception. I am very grateful to have tried this beer, and I think it is something more people should try. Cheers!

Hazy, pale gold with a short, off white head. A little bit of lacing clings to the glass. A deep inhale fills the nose with dank aromas that are accented by grapefruit pith, pine and some fruity sweetness. A little sweet and fizzy up front followed by a giant dose of pith and pine bitterness. Nice creamy, medium mouthfeel and a dry finish. Great beer.

Pours a slightly hazy gold honey color with white head leaving rings of bubbly lacing. Another stellar example of the style . Big nose of danky ,fruity deliciousness. Tasty AF ,hence the name. Recommended. Update -on tap at the brewery and this is still one of my favorites from Revision.

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.

I can't wait to hear the story of how Nevada ABC heard of this beer. Something appears to have fallen through the cracks, could be sheer marketing, who knows. But there it is, in all its glory, the 4 pack of 16oz tallboy cans I bought, emblazoned with "Reno As Fuck" in major size letters across the powder blue can. Pours pretty similar to the other 20 or so NE ipas that Revision makes, straw yellow, moderate haze and cloudiness, chicken stock like, small 1/4" white head. Aroma was draped in proprietary hops. Seems like for their 25-30 hoppy beers, they have about a half dozen hops they use and very slightly change to arrive at yet another, slightly different beer. I would guess there are 3 of the following: some Mosaic, El Dorado, Galaxy, Equinox, Citra, Eukanot.

Taste, wow, low bitterness (23 ibu) and a very soft carbonation make for another similar, but similarly enjoyable creation from Revision. The alcohol is nowhere to be tasted, another thing. The cool thing about this review is it is snarky about this being just like so many of their other beers. . . but its damn good, like so many of their other beers. Kinda seems like Planetary Fog 2.0, this time its bigger.

I'll await the story on whatever nasty letter they receive. This will prolly be named RAF or some shit down the road.

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.
