Notes: Hitch a free ride onboard the Mothership Connection to Planet Lovetron. Ease your mind and soul with bright citrus and stonefruit notes from Amarillo, Mosaic and Citra hops, floating on a pillowy bed of malted goodness. You might love these hops, but they love you back even more. Soak in the positive vibes and exercise your posifunkentronic membranes while digging your place in the universe, tasty beer in hand.

Poured from a 16 ounce can into an IPA glass.

Look- Pale gold, hazy, frothy white head, no visible particulate, above average head retention and lacing.

Smell- Peach, clementine, apricot, grassy, herbal.

Taste- Clementine, peach, apricot, pithy.

Feel- Between thin and medium body, low bitterness, average carbonation, creamy, soft, mildly astringent.

Overall- Nice flavors that improved throughout my experience as the beer warmed.

This is a really great IPA. Although, for Revision it's kinda just their standard NE IPA flavor. To sum it up, great NE IPA (better than most) BUT kinda meh for Revisions standard.

this isnt their most unique beer from a hop profile standpoint, amarillo, mosaic, and citra, common types in a common combination, but i would argue that it is among their best overall, more drinkable and refined than some of them, especially in texture, this is dry and fluffy, effervescent, and super clean on the ferment, nothing green or bitey from the hops lingering, its just gone on the swallow, so while the hops dont combine to taste like anything new or challenging or different, they taste awesome and in this delivery mechanism of a base beer, its all on point. nice to see the pace of the revision stuff coming into idaho pick back up lately, it was hot for awhile and then really slowed down. really super pale in color, whitewashed yellow, maybe the faintest green tint, and with a very active pure white head, airy as can be and with great retention. subtle melon from the amarillo, canned pineapple from the mosaic, and meyer lemon from the citra, slight watermelon rind lushness, a hint of something floral just blooming, and some oils too, but this isnt radical, its just really good. its the quickness of the finish that makes it stand out from so many of their others, no heft to it late, it just begs for another sip to be taken as soon as the last one is swallowed, brimming carbonation makes it feel so alive too, and the freshness is majorly evident. i do like their beers that bring more unique hop profiles to the table, but from a pure quality standpoint, this is fabulous!

16oz canned on 1/8 poured into a can-shaped nonic.

A: Glowing and bright, pale hazy gold with minimal head from a slow pour.

S: Solid nose of citrus and stone fruit and mango.

T: More citrus, melon, lots of apricot and mango, with a mild and dry almost crackery malt profile. Tropical fruit sweetness, coconut as well.

MF: Light, crisp mouthfeel with a semi-pillowy malt body and a dryer finish.

O: Definitely good, maybe even one of the better Revision hazy offerings; this one checks a lot of boxes on the flavors I like - very juicy, fruity, and bright.

Poured from 16oz tall can into a tulip. I couldn't find a canning date.

Appearance: hazy, murky, yellow-golden hue with a finger of frothy ivory foam atop. Dense!

Smell: orange and tangerine aromas along with a base malty sweetness. Reminiscent of an Orange Julius, so you know I'm into it.

Taste: more tropical flavor than the aroma suggested; there's pineapple and passionfruit in here with the citrus. Bitterness is low, but there's some present; overall this is extremely tasty.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a good level of carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: what a good beer. I could just drink this all day long.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a one pint can on December 28, 2019. Brewed with Amarillo, Mosaic and Citra hops. Notes of bright citrus and stone. Nice pillowy feel.

Had on tap. Hazy yellow with two fingers of foam. Dank and bitter hops lead a cornucopia of pineapple, clementine, mango, papaya, and lemon. Taste follows the nose with cantaloupe added, hops are more complex in there bitterness, expressive. Feel is hoppy, hazy, musty, and higher carbonated. Finding I like almost anything I have from Revision

16 oz can poured into an imperial can-shaped glass.

Appearance
Extra hazy blonde. 1 finger of creamy white head.

Nose
Mango, peach, passion fruit, dank, honey, and pine sap.

Taste
Passion fruit, peaches & cream, and mango juice. Dank, floral, and pine sap. Honey and candy sugar sweetness.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, juicy, silky, and lightly bitter.

Overall
I tend to get tired of the Citra / Mosaic hop combo, but this is the best of them!

Extreme milky Hazy straw colour with no visible carbonation and a half finger of white head.

Smells very dank and fruity, pineapples, mango, papaya, soursop, and jackfruit.

Tastes of soursop, mango, jackfruit, banana, dank green leaf, and catnip.

Medium, juicy body with lots of prickly carbonation.

Got this one sent to me, drinking in Redding, Dec 22nd, 2018. Excellent brew.

Planet Lovetron is a mild flavored IPA. It is very fruity and juicy. It's very good as a fruity IPA but not my favorite. I'd prefer my IPAs a bit more bitter. The can is very colorful. Summary:

Look: very hazy dark yellow with a very tall white head

Aroma: tropical fruits, mango, grapefruit, orange

Flavor: The flavor is very fruity, orange, apricot, mango, grapefruit, a little bit sweet, no pine resin flavor.

Feel: medium body

Was nice to see some Revision that I hadn’t tried yet in San Diego. Revision arguably does the best haze and I had them at the fifth-best brewery coming into September or so. Description read, “Hitch a free ride onboard the Mothership Connection to Planet Lovetron. Ease your mind and soul with bright citrus and stonefruit flavors of Amarillo, Mosaic and Citra hops, floating on a pillowy bed of malted goodness. You might love these hops, but they love you back even more. Soak in the positive vibes and exercise your posifunkentronic membranes while digging your place in the universe, tasty beer in hand.”

Poured a pale-to-gold hazy color with two fingers of frothy off-white head. Lots of fast moving bubbles coming up along the sides of the glass. Excellent uneven lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled just awesome from the beginning. Got big whiffs of Mosaic, Citra and Amarillo. Also stone fruit, orange juice, floral, orange blossom, peach skin, dank pine, mango, passion fruit and herbal. More Citra than anything else from the can. (Smell - 4.50)

Taste was nowhere near as good as the nose, but that would be pretty hard to do. Actually got better as it went down. Got trashy Mosaic, Citra, stone fruit, orange blossom, Amarillo, guava, floral, peach skin, orange juice, mango and passion fruit. (Taste - 4.25)

Medium body. Creamy soft texture. Average carbonation. Long, dry, juicy finish. (Feel - 4.50)

Just a fantastic hazy IPA from Revision. Would like to have some more of this. (Overall - 4.25)

Man this is a great hazy ipa, I’m fairly new to these so I buy one at a time to make sure I like it. Went back and bought a 4pk immediately, hazy yellowish orange color. Smells and tastes super fruity, little to no bitterness. Easy and smooth drinking

Pours an opaque lemon yellow with a white head leaving some whispy lacing. Not as hazy or cloudy as others of the style. Nose is subtle fruit and sticky hops. If I had to pick a lite beer, it would be this.

Pale gold and hazy with a white thin head. Smells like pineapples, oranges and resiny hops. The taste is very fruity and bitter. This beer is nicely balanced and is not as sweet as other NEIPAs which makes me like it even more. This is a really tasty beer.
