BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Revision Brewing Company
Nevada, United States

Style: American Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We found an old mechanical hop picking machine in the fields of England, in the shadow of Stonehenge. With a lot of work, a modicum of sweat and a little monkey grease, the newly refurbished machine has been repurposed to deliver hop flavor to your mouth as efficiently as possible. Featuring a heap of citrusy Citra and mounds of mango-ish Mosaic hops conveyor belted on a base of wheat and flaked oats.

IBU = 35

Dark yellow in color with hazy, unfiltered appearance. Poured with a moderate, creamy, bright white foam with very good retention. Medium high sweet fruit, fresh pineapple, and stone fruit aromas. Medium malty aromas with light boozy notes. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Silky, creamy smooth feel with pleasant boozy warmth from the middle to the end. Fruity an tropical flavors with pineapple and melon notes. Medium hop bitterness through the middle. Citrus notes followed by sweet fruit and malt flavors and boozy heat from the middle to the end. Finished semi-dryly with sticky tropical and light malty flavors. Juicy and tasty with a great feel. Mellow bitterness and booziness balances the sweetness. Very tasty.

Can poured into a Russian River Brewing Co pub glass

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

The Bruff pours a bright, hazy yellow with a moderate 1-finger head and good lacing retention.

The smell is a literal juice bomb with grapefruit, mango and other tropical fruits with a grassy complexity and floral characteristic.

The taste. Lush fruits, both tropical and and citrus with a light vanilla sweetness, from the oats with a mellow hop bitterness. Smooth on the palette with a long clean dry finish.

Canned 5/2/18.
Look: Bright yellow and hazy. 2 fingers worth of head with moderate lacing.
Smell: Full of citrus and stone fruit, with grassy hop complexity. Very nice smelling.
Taste: Follows the nose, with a little more hop expression. Orange, mango, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, passionfruit, apricot and peach all present in the flavor wise, with an earthy/grassy taste from the hops. Slight bitterness, with moderate sweetness, though the hops are noticeable. Really liking this one.
Feel: Light to medium in both body and weight. It's a little more watery than other Revision hazy's, but I think its enjoyable. Carbonation is moderate, giving slight fizz on the tongue. Very easy drinking.
Overall: This beer is great. I love how it balances a nice fruit complexity with a earthy/herbal hop profile. For an 8 percent DIPA, it is very smooth and easy to drink. Very nice on a warm sunny day without feeling too heavy. I would definitely recommend and would try again. I am grateful to try this brew. Cheers!
