Notes: There's a whole lotta ruckus goin' down in this super tasty Northeast-Style Double IPA. This beer combines the best of Northeastern tropical juiciness and West Coast piney aggressiveness. Pour, breath in, enjoy!

Slightly hazy gold with 3 fingers of white head.

Smells of Dank herbal quality and dry tropical fruit.

The taste follows the nose.

Medium body with light carbonation.

I got this in Sac and am drinking it in Redding, Jan 16th, 2020.

this has a little fuller feel to it, is bursting with hops intense in both aromatic fruitiness and finishing bitterness on the palate, but it shows absolutely no sign of its strength, crazy well hidden in here. not a super heavy look, hazy still (of course), but a little more clear than some of their others, very airy lace white head on top, bold aroma of peach and pine, a cool fruit and northwestern woodsy hops without the usual citrus profile middleman in terms of hops, kind of an interesting dynamic with the ripe orchard fruit and the forest notes, the bitterness is obvious in the nose, i like the more intense fashion of this one, especially for a hazy, is pretty full spectrum. its neatly smooth and mellow in feel, dry and fizzy, without any oily hop linger on the finish and carbonation like a soda, it really drinks light for its strength, even with the hops being so pungent in here. peach and apricot, a bit of pineapple juiciness too, and then a juniper and spruce thing in the finish, a little green bite there, but it helps it finish quick. rather complex, and kind of a unique trajectory for this one, really tasty, and another hazy beer from these guys that is not like all the others. i could get real turnt on these!

Grabbed a 4-pack of this and two others on my penultimate day in Reno for a work trip. Had vaguely heard of it, but had not had the chance to try it. Can description read, “There's a whole lotta ruckus goin' down in this super tasty Northeast-Style Double IPA. This beer combines the best of Northeastern tropical juiciness and West Coast piney aggressiveness. Pour, breath in, enjoy!” No mention of the hops.

Poured a medium yellow-to-gold mostly hay color with 2-to-3 fingers of off-white frothy head. Could see a few bubbles creeping up along the sides of the glass. Excellent uneven layered lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled really good initially. Got Mosaic, mixed berry, floral, rose blossom, guava, bubblegum, peach, orange and grapefruit. Mosaic and Citra from the can. Terrific on the nose. (Smell - 4.50)

Tasted almost as good as the nose, but not quite. Got Mosaic, floral, mixed berry, rose blossom, guava, bubblegum, grapefruit, pineapple, peach, orange juice and guava. That 8 pct. ABV is well hidden. (Taste - 4.25)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 4.75)

This beer was awesome. So damn good. I was back and forth on a few of the categories, but world-class for sure. (Overall - 4.50)

Poured from a can stamped 3/18/19 "The state of Ruckus" , a hazy gold honey color with white head dissipating into slight lacy lacing. Nose is tropical citrus with a little piney resin and malty sweetness. Taste follows more or less with a bit of hop bite and an almost dry finish.

16 oz can, bottled on 11/26/18 , poured into a pint glass, a slightly hazy golden orange with a two finger fluffy white head that retains well into the glass. The smell is grapefruit, slight dank, and sea salt. The taste is some similar with some pint mixed in. Mouthfeel is both soft and prickly sharp. Overall, an interesting hybrid.

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 firm layer and laces nicely.

S: Citrus, pine, a little tropical fruit, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

T: Citrus, lots of orange and tangerine, a little tropical fruit, papaya and guava, pine, slight herbal grassy notes, biscuity malt, and caramel sweetness.

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

O: This one is interesting. Not a full on juicy NE style, but also not an aggressively bitter west coast style. Tasty for a sorta hybrid style DIPA.

The beer pours out a medium to full on hazy golden yellow color, with 1 finger of white head---------------- the aromas are of stone fruit, passion fruit, pine, blueberry, guava and pineapple(smells like fruit juice)---------------- the flavors follow the nose with that pungent tropical fruit followed by some dank weed and pine, the beer has a medium to full mouthfeel with a light bitterness on the finish---------------- overall this beer is exceptional - another one from revision that never seems to disappoint, big fruity aromas on the nose lead to pungent dank and pine flavors on the pallet

On tap at Growler Guys today.

The pours the expected hazy golden amber color with pretty good head retention and lacing. On the nose, I get considerable tropical fruit and juice, along with some underlying vanilla. Smells like Revision all the way. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely, with maybe a touch of heat on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, but I have to say this is yet another hazy juice bomb, where the lack of any noticeable bitterness in the finish wore on me after a while. Still, the beer delivers plenty of flavor otherwise, and drinkability isn't too bad.

While nothing extraordinary, this is another solid IPA/DIPA from the folks at Revision.

Canned 05/30/18

Appearance - Pours hazy and orange in color with an off-white, near finger width head, displaying fair retention before dying down to a thin, broken layer of surface suds and a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Fair lacing brings a bit of broken webbing and a handful of small spots.

Smell - Prominent grapefruit on the nose with a hint of spice while some juicy orange and mango sit beneath.

Taste - Follows the nose. Grapefruit peel upfront and throughout with lesser, juicy notes of orange, mango and a bit of pineapple bite, especially as it approaches the finish. Fair spice. Aftertaste is juicy than bittersweet, with fading grapefruit allowing more of the juiciness to shine through.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Goes down well enough for an 8% with a mostly dry finish.

Overall - Another good one from Revision, but this isn't much different than a few of the hazy DIPAs they've put out before it; Battle of the Lords and The Bruff come to mind. Pumping out new hazy beer after another is the trend though now, isn't it?
