Can poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours super hazy golden yellow with a frothy off white head that settles to a thin layer and leaves some spotty lacing.

S: Bright, zesty citrus, big tropical fruit, faint pine, biscuity malt, and a touch of sweetness.

T: Big tropical fruit, passion fruit, pineapple, lychee, guava, peach, and apricot, some citrus, lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine, light herbal grassy notes, a touch of pine, biscuity malt, and a touch of sweetness.

M: A bit on the lighter side of medium body, moderate carbonation, soft on the palate.

O: All my favorite hops in one place. Tasty stuff.

16 oz can courtesy of Renée. Typical revision here, pale golden, milky, small fluffy head. Citrusy, pineapples. Normal aroma and the taste and flavored reflect the citrusy hops, not the best of the Revision lot right in their wheelhouse.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a semi-hazy burnt orange color with a small finger's worth of white foamy head that dissolved fairly quick. Light sliding lace.
The aroma had pineapple juicy sweetness with melon-like fruit bits. Sly grassy hops.
The flavor yields to the sweetness most of the way through consumption, slight grassy bitterness entered with some warmth. Mild sticky sweet melon to grassy and pineapple aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV burn was noticeable on my tongue. Semi-sticky finish.
Overall, great aromas and flavors but the feel was a bit sticky but not cloying and some of that alcohol burn wasn't very enjoyable.

A: The beer is hazy pale light yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, leaving just a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of passionfruit are present in the nose along with hints of pineapples.
T: The taste has flavors of passionfruit and pineapples along with hints of blueberries. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA has nice aromas and flavors of tropical fruits. It is also very easy to drink.

Solid New England style IPA. Hazy, crisp, not as aromatic as i wouldve liked. Good hoppy, citrusy balance. Refreshing!

Pours a hazy yellow, 2/5" white head, the yellow is on the brighter shade of the spectrum. Aroma pops nicely, Mosaic and Citra, the usual suspects. I think they have some Amarillo popping off in there as well, that really is the triple crown of aroma hops, and they don't fall short here despite big expectations when you see those 3 brought together again for like the 47th iteration of a sequel in the Revision lineup. Hey at least it isn't shitty every time like Fast N Da Fyooorious.

Taste is a nice bitterness restrained but yet plenty of leash on it with the Vic Secret finding its home. Super light pale toasted 2 row and maybe pilsner if I was guessing. The Galaxy hop provides a very slight amount of pineapple on the back end of the mouth feel. Didn't pick it up in the nose at first, but upon reflection, you can pull it out in the nose once you taste it on the back end.

A very nice 6.5% banger. Not acidic in the stomach at all like some of the8+% ones they frequently drop. Above average stuff from an above average ipa brewery.

Pale gold and hazy with a two finger white head that leaves bands of lacing on the glass. Sweet smelling beer with a hint of caramel and a ton of grapefruit zest and pine. Lightly sweet and very bitter. Tastes of caramel, grapefruit and grapefruit pith with a piney and earthy bitterness at the end.

Canned 4/18/18.
Look: Pours golden yellow in color, with evident haze. 2 fingers worth of a white head from a non-aggressive pour which dissipated rapidly. Moderate levels of lacing.
Smell: Bursting with hop aromas. Some nice citrus fruit smells to back up the hop presence, with slight earthiness.
Taste: Follows the nose. Really nice hop presence mixed with some orange, pineapple, lemongrass and mango flavoring.
Feel: Medium in body and weight. Low carbonation. Soft and smooth mouthfeel, with slight tongue fizz from the bitterness.
Overall: Another Revision beer that has yet to disappoint me. Very tasty. I am grateful to have tried, and recommend. Cheers!

Pours a light golden straw color with thick white head leaving significant lacing. Nose is very mild citrus, grass and a hint of pine. Taste is also very mild and citrusy with a faint bitterness. Easy to quaff ,not very exciting.

Canned 4/18/18, consumed 4/27/18

Poured hazy straw with a small head that left nice bands of lacing. Light in appearance.

Aroma is a mild but very pleasant blend of tropical and citrus fruits. Hard to get much else, it's light here as well.

Taste has a little bit of floral and dank hop notes, fruit profile is much more citrusy here, tropical fruits hit the backseat or may have even been relegated to the trunk.

Feel is medium but a bit thin, a little bit of bitterness, dry finish.

Overall, decent hazy offering, but definitely towards the bottom of Revision's prolific hazy lineup. Drinks nearly like a session. For the ABV, I'd absolutely rather be drinking a Revision IPA.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Can dated 04/18/18 into a tulip glass.

L: Pours a slightly hazy dirty yellow with 2 fingers of variable density white head with good retention and left ringed/windshield lacing.

S: Mute, green citrus with very subtle grassy undertones. Not bad, but nothing that makes you super excited.

T: Mostly one-dimensional in citrus, perhaps some faint honeydew and subtle dankness. Finishes with mild bitterness and mild astringency, clears palate moderately quickly.

F: Low-medium bodied with medium carbonation, slightly lively on the tongue, slick finish.

O: Swing and a miss for the style and based on previous recipes. Not a bad beer, just not up to their usual form for my palate and preferences.

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

Canned 04/18/18

Appearance - Pours hazy and straw yellow with a slight orange tinge. White, one finger width head that displays good retention before dying down to thin, broken layer of suds and a solid ring around the edge of the glass. A few small spots and a broken that reaches into the drink make up the lacing.

Smell - Juicy, slightly tropical aroma with notes of mango, pineapple, orange, grapefruit and lesser pine.

Taste - Follows the aroma. Juicy, but soft flavor. Mellowed notes of mango and honeydew melon with lesser citrus and a slight touch of pineapple emerging by mid-taste. The citrus/pineapple notes strengthen as it rounds out into the finish, leaving a slightly zingy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with fair, tingly carbonation. Slick drinker with a slightly dry finish.

Overall - Pretty good Hazy IPA, but with all the fantastic ones that are frequently being dropped, this is one that I'll quickly forget.
