From a 33cl bottle pours a hazy straw color with a big white head. Aroma of strong floral hops. Taste of strong hops, candy, grass, and spices. Long lasting bitterness, more bitter at the start than at the end. Very enjoyable.

20/10/2012 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Dorata, abbastanza limpida, schiuma morbida discreta, abbastanza persistente. Al naso bel bouquet di luppoli, sentori agrumati e di pesca, frutta esotica, erbaceo, resina. In bocca ha un amaro deciso, ma non eccessivo, di corpo esile, leggermente "watery", di grande beva nonostante l’amaro deciso, buona carbonazione. APA da applausi!

Huge Nelson Sauvin nose. Smooth and well attenuated. Great drinking beer - so drinkable it’s not funny. Really well balanced though this is most def a hop monster. Toffee, biscuit and very fruity. This is what beer is all about. Like a mini Alpine Nelson. Fantab. Cheers Mark.

Craft Clarkenwell. A sample bottle generously shared by Frederic and Tom - cheers guys! Light haze on this gold beer, little bubbly white head. Palate is light and crisp. Semi dry. Lovely fresh hops - Citra? Light but vibrant orange and lemon with a trace of skunk. Mild minerally crisp finish. A lovely pale ale. I’ve really missed Revelation Cat and Alex - they seemed to have all but disappeared over the 18 months. Hope this is the start of the comeback.

Bottle courtesy of Alex420 - thank you! Part of a group tasting with the RB crew and staff at Birreria Paradiso Georgetown, thank you for volunteering! This was most people’s favorite of the night, certainly the best of the session beers. Although everyone liked the Nintendo labels, most pointed out that this dark purple label suggested something more like an imperial stout rather than a pale ale. Most people commented on the strawberry. marshmallow, perfume and other fruits in the aroma. All commented that the beer has a lot of flavor for a 4.5%er, with grapefruit and other citrus; one person found it too bitter. Very tasty.

33cl bottle. It pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a huge soapy white head. Gushing beer with lasting foam. Aroma is hoppy and citrusy. Citrus, loads of pineapple and some apricot. RevCat surely knows how to dry hop. Taste is quite bitter, mostly hoppy with some grainy components. The fresh fruits from the dry hopping really shine in this. Mostly pineapple but apricot is there with a gentle sweet touch to mitigate partly the overall bitterness. Very fresh and smooth taste. No traces of alcohol. Light in body with very nice carbonation. Overall, this is what an APA should be, light refreshing easy to drink and damn tasty. The fruity hoppy profile helps drinkability a lot: resiny piny hops tend to enhance the bitter sensation making some APAs much less refreshing. Fruity and amazing.
