3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap @ Taste of Belgium / Cincinnati OH --- Clear caramel amber, thick rim head, bands of lace. Taste is malt and a little bitter coriander, perhaps a little cloves. Citrus hops jump in in the palate, but never quite overcome the openers. Interesting, big flavor, but doesn’t really pair with anything. One at a time is more than enough (like a rich dessert).

22 oz. bottle. Pours a glowing orange pour with a small white head. Aroma of big pine and citrus hops intertwined with spicy belgian yeast. Flavor is sippy, lots of nice belgian yeast and bitter hop notes. Some citrus, song banana, and mild spice tones. It’s medium bodied, finishes long and bitter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale golden color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is floral & fruity in a very hop forward kind of way. It’s pungent and bright with just a light alcohol character.
The flavor is enjoyably bitter & plenty hop forward in a very fruity kind of way, lots o’ pineapple, mango & citrus... the beer comes off as a touch sweet, but all around packs a pretty nice hop profile.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

12 oz can purchased at Lalo’s Mexican Restaurant located in the Midway airport main terminal boulevard food court in Chicago, Illinois. The pour is a clear golden copper with a one inch light tan head. The aroma is fresh grass, floral hops along with a spice Belgian yeast. The taste is the nose, nice clean mix of the hops and the Belgian yeast notes. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and a lightly bitter finish. Nice, happy to find this at Midway (this place also had Revolution Anti-Hero IPA).

12oz can 1/11/14 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-40° in Trappist Glass-Pours a light amber with a nice off white head. Aroma of hops and yeast. Taste of hops, yeast, and malt. This medium bodied brew is not bad as the Belgian aspect comes thru on the back end. Not my favorite for this style but still pretty tasty.
