COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A citrusy and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale hopped with Cascade, Citra, and whole Crystal hops for massive aromas and flavors! Fermented with our Belgian Wit yeast for an extra dose of complexity, this one is very drinkable and extremely aromatic.

Per Wil Turner, this is a second runnings beer from Institutionalized Barleywine’s runoff.

I think this may well be the best beer I’ve had from Revolution and a very damn good Belgian IPA type beer. It’s crystal clear and bright orange. Its head is thin but of fine bubbles and leaves behind sheets of lace as it dissipates.This is just a wonderful combination of fruity yeast and fruity hops and like in the very best of this style, it is hard to tell where they yeast ends and the hops begin. It’s big and citrusy w/ lots of pineapple and hints of cloves and spice. The fruitiness implies sweetness but it finishes relatively dry with a touch of bitterness and that, along w/ fine carbonation, keeps this nice and drinkable. This beer really impresses me w/ its bright, supple fruitiness. Not everyone likes this style of beer but if you do, this is an absolute must try. Have at it!

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a crystal clear, darker gold colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of fruity hops and yeast. Crisp citruses, some florals, light grass, tropical fruits, a few yeasty esters, and some dry herbal notes. Pale malt backing with some doughy yeast and a touch of spice. Flavor is similar. Tropical fruits, citrus, and a light Belgian yeast note up front. Dry grass, florals, and a pale malt backing come in during the middle with some doughy yeast and herbal hops showing up at the end. Finishes dry and clean with a light bitterness. Nice dry citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt, light Belgian yeast balance in a medium length aftertaste. Light body with a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice pale ale. Crisp and fruity hops with nice dryness balanced well with a light pale malt backing and light Belgian yeast influence. Very enjoyable beer.

shigadeyo (3246) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2013
UPDATED: APR 24, 2015 12/17/2013: Revolution A Little Crazy... Well, this beer tastes exactly like the style it?s labeled to be, a Belgian Pale Ale. At first sip, the Belgian yeast spice, caramel/fruitcake malt, and fleshy fruits come through and then the citrusy, melon, and FLORAL hops layer in on top. There is a suggestion of tropical fruits as well and the biterness level is moderate which is right on for the style. This beer is on point and quite easy to quaff, but nothing special and sadly, easily forgettable. 22 fl. oz. bottle shared by dirhauge. Score = 3.2. Thanks Paul! UPDATE 4/23/2015... Better out of the can. Score = 3.4.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of grapefruit with light citrus, some resin and a bread backbone. The taste was of citrus and grapefruit with a bit of rind and a bread backbone. Nice.

madvike (3089) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle from pantanap...thanks Kan! - Pours clear light amber with a thin white head. Nose is dank, oniony hops, citrus, light pine, and grass. Real pungent, and only a hint of sweet malt peeks through. Taste still has the oniony, garlicy, piney hops, but a lightly spicy sweet bread malt base underneath. Real smooth velvety mouthfeel, gentle carbonation, and a fairly hefty body. Good stuff.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2013
Draught at Mikkeler Bar, Copenhagen. Golden blond coloured beer with a rather light carbonation and a short white head. Rather fruity light hoppy pilsener malty hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. FInish is light fruity hoppy, touches of orange peel. Refreshing hoppy, not bad.

chinchill (2936) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2013
22 oz bottle dated 2013 served in a Belgian snifter. A: deep orange-amber color with high clarity and a thin fragile head. Decent lacing. Aroma & Flavor: With hops that make this citrusy and slightly grassy, and some Belgian yeast adding a touchs of nuttiness and funk, this has very good complexity in both aroma and flavor. Also has notes of tropical fruits. Mildly bitter. I enjoyed the aroma a bit more than the flavor, largely owing to the relatively disappointing aftertaste. Feel: Medium-light body with medium+ carbonation. O: a well-done and and refreshing Belgian-style pale ale. Very drinkable and rather aromatic for style.

tmoreau (2909) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
On tap at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL., and shaker served with a clear, golden color, off white, creamy head foam that diminished to a thin but persistent ring, and showed some light streaks & spots of lacing. The nose presented light yeast & spiciness, honey sweetness & malt, and some orangy citrus. The flavor again was sweet, then a combination of tart fruitiness, and moderate, earthy & rind-like bitterness. Medium bodied. A decent Wit/Pale.

DrnkMcDermott (2899) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Single can from Binny’s. Nice tropical fruit smell from pouring it into the glass. Closer in, I can find more of those traditionally piney northwestern hops. A clear gold color in the glass, and it pours with a finger of spongy foam. Malt is pretty light against the overwhelming force of this hoppy little cane toad. Hop bitterness almost pierces my tongue, but is till relaxing and almost indulgent. Definitely a great beer you’d never expect to find in a can.
