4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap summer 2010. Orange color with low carbonation and a thin white head with good lacing. Aroma has a strong pine, mild orange citrus and low malt. Flavor follows nose with the pine and citrus notes coming through the best. Modest body with low carbonation. Overall a damn fine brew. Very good, well balanced and lots of hops flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - December 27, 2010.
Pours a nice orange-copper color with a good white head and some nice lacing. The nose is quite nice and strong and I really enjoy the hop components. Strong floral and citrus notes. A hint of pine. The flavor isnít quite as powerful. Mild bready malt in the background though this is mostly about the hops. Mouthfeel is medium with a really nice level of bitterness. Drinks quite well. Another hit from Revolution, a brewery I am excited to eventually get back to.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
5 oz mini nonic pint sample at the brewery in Chicago, Illinois. Pour is hazed copper orange with a smallish white head. Aroma is faint lemon citrus, floral hops and a touch of mild malt sweetness. Taste is the nose, for the most part - light citrus hops up front, floral and grass and the mild sweetness of the malt. In the back, there is a hint of rye, or crystal malt canít really tell. Palate is light to medium bodied, soft natural carbonation, dry citrusy finish. Nice one.

Big hop aroma. White head. Golden coloured strong in alcohol and hoppy with pine and citrus flavours. A hint of dryness in a bitter finish.

POurs mid amber with nice hop notes brining the floral out first. The IPA runs into a deep hop/citrus/spice note right though the mid palate to finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask pint at the pub. Nice presentation. Gold color with a lasting white head. Nice and hoppy aroma with citrus and floral touches combining with a rough yeasty fruitiness. No diacetyl (that sticks out), but the is no doubt a 1968 beer. Round maltiness and light caramel. Balanced sweetness and bitterness. Pleasant but still too malty/fruity. Get some chico in this shit. Sorry, I guess Iíve given up on this yeast and hoppy beers. That said, Iíll take another. Is that odd?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear, golden colored body with some orange tints to it. Inch thick, very dense and creamy, egg shell white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of pretty lacing. Aroma is quite nice. Lots of fresh hops with plenty of pines, resiny citrus grapefruits, some floral orange-apricot-lemon, and a nice caramel to balance with a touch of toffee sweetness. Flavor is similar and really nice, but thins out a bit at times. Sweeter caramels with lots of juicy oranges and grapefruit pines. More of a sweet floral during the middle with some peach syrup. Finishes with a resiny, moderate bitterness and lots of sweet, juicy citrus pines and florals. Dries after a light-medium body with a moderate, soft carbonation. Overall, a really nice IPA. Lots of fresh and juicy hops with a solid caramel balance. The body could be slightly more rounded and finish a bit more together, but this was very flavorful and enjoyable.
