Tap at the source. Thin light tan head, hazy light rust orange. Grassy, herbal and citrusy hops in the aroma. Flavor is not overly aggressive but fresh citrusy hops, some grassiness, and a touch of crackery malt. Lighter body with good carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly pale gold. Looks slightly hazy, perhaps. Just a touch. Very nice puffy white head. Just a ton of tiny bubbles are sitting on top of the beer. Good lacing. Aroma is a pleasant mix of bright citrus and spruce/pine. The citrus is in the direction of orange/tangerine territory. Doesnít quite have enough juiciness to it. Little bit of tropical hoppiness - pineapple and kiwi. Lots of hops to the taste. Good flavorful citrus upfront. Just a touch of caramel malt flavor, always a positive. Finish is quite dry, though a bit too yeasty. Could use a little more hop flavor, there - improves as it warms up. Still, it has a solid, clean bitterness to it, and Iím enjoying my glass. Easy to drink. No booze to be found. Light on the palate but flavorful. This is a well-made IPA. Itís probably not going to blow anyone away, but it hits all of the right notes, and Iíd be happy to drink it regularly.

Slightly hazed gold.Heady,good lace,leaves a nice froth shortly after pour.

Cool ass can! Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is light fruity hop and malt. Taste is a nice balance of hop and malts, refreshing. Nice hop aftertaste. Nice lacing. Fresh and tasty, a great IPA. I hope to see more Revolution beers in Central Illinois.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from JStax! Poured into a tulip. Deep but clear gold pour, slight white head with loose lacing. Aroma is faint citrus and grass. Taste is hop forward, but overly sticky sweet. Would hop for something a bit dryer and crisp with this lower ABV. Couldnít see myself drinking more than one of these, especially in warmer weather. Just not that refreshing.

12oz can, love the micros in these cans. Fresh grassyhops aroma, hazy, pale pour, taste of grass, citrus hops, well balanced, definite ipa flavor. Feels medium to light body, maybe because there is not a real bitter finish. Good lacing and co2.

Pours a a nice hazy orange with a great foamy head. Got some grapefruit aromas from it as well. Not the hop assault I expected, pretty easy drinking for an India pale. Enjoyed it, would not turn it down if I can get my hands on it again.

Pours a pretty orange, with a grapefruit/pine hop bomb aroma. Resinous pine and citrus rind flavor, before it explodes into a fruit bomb. Oily thick finish. Straightforward IPA that hits all the good notes.

Yellow-gold with a small white head. Aroma is floral, citrus (grapefruit), pine. Taste is much of the same except with something slightly sweet as well, Iím thinking caramel.

Can and served in my GI IPA tulip: Clean golden hue with a rocky head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of mango, grapefruit, pine, resin, and white pepper along with biscuit malt and mineral water. The taste is bitter and fruity but without knocking you over the head. Light hop spice and biscuity malts. Lively and sharp carbonation. This has become my goto IPA in place of Bells Two Hearted, that is saying something!
