3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Whirleyball in Vernon Hills. Pours a yellowish orange with a lot of lacing. Aroma has fresh fruit, overwhelmingly so - to the dirty socks point - pine and citrus. Taste is fruity, with caramel and citrus, and is quite rough. Better than the aroma but neither are smooth. Finishes bittersweet. Iíve wanted to try some Revolution stuff but got onto Pipeworks first, and Pipe has seemed better.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Evolution Liquors in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a Tuesday night after work. I also had this on tap at Schubas while waiting for a very late friend. Appearance is a slightly cloudy gold with a rich white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is pretty nice, packs the typical IPA punch with notes that are somewhere between citrus, grassy, and floral. Taste also goes down very nicely with a good bitterness. Nothing particularly outstanding about this, just a really really good IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can courtesy of Tooch4321. Cheers, Adam! Pours a clear orange-copper with a white head. Nose is slight caramel, big pine, and some great dry-hopping with floral and herbal hops. Flavor follows the nose with a nice hop presence- everything from floral and herbal and piney. Light to medium and lingering floral.

Very solid IPA from one of the best local brewers in Chicago. Itís heavy on the hops and the floral, grass and citrus aromas. Grapefruit and some honeysuckle. Love the way it looks, tastes and smells. Great effort by Revolution.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I am surprised I havenít rated this at the brew-pub but am glad to try it in cans regardless. This is really a nice IPA w/ a bright, fresh hop aroma. It pours clear orange w/ a small head of fine bubbles. Nose is peachy, fruity hops w/ a twinge of pine. Flavor and bitterness are rather light for the style which makes this drink much lighter than it actually is, which is either a good or bad thing depending on whether you gotta drive later. Finishes clean w/ just a touch of bitterness. Definitely, this is one of the better packaged IPAs in the area and I will be buying more in the future.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange with a white head. I get a very citrus aroma dominated by grapefruit along with a pine mixture, with undertones of caramel and lemon. Taste is well balanced. I get more orange instead of grapefruit, along with resin, pine, and hops. Hops are smooth, not offering a big IPA kick. Medium bodied, with a sticky texture. Piney hop aftertaste. Easily drinkable, this one is quite crisp actually. This is an enjoyable IPA that is solid in everything it offers.
