3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A clear dark amber beer that has a smaller pure white head that leaves a nice lacing. Has a delicious grassy hop scent. Very flavorful with a nice hop flavor (herbal, fresh cut grass, citrus) nice complexity. An excellent beer that I would go out and look for. A must try for all you hop heads.

On tap in Cleveland (OH)
An excellent IPA is the perfect antidote for a cold winter day in January. The fact that it was one of the tap specials was an added bonus. I wish that I could try more Revolution releases in smaller sizes - not because they are not world class but because there are simply too many options to get to them any other way.
Aroma / Appearance - A golden carbonated body bubbles with life. Lively fresh white head is like a dusting of overnight snow. Lemons, fresh wheat, grapefruit, and other flavors are an assertive presence full of hops.
Flavor / Palate - The bitterness is immediate after only the first sip. Wheat drives the mouthfeel towards a sourdough and lemon finish. Bright and resiny it is an assault of fresh hops. If you’ve got a can do not let it sit around; enjoy this excellent beer as soon as possible.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can via trade, poured into snifter. Massive American C hop citrus with some strong pine and slight dank. A large white head that slowly dissipated with great lacing on the glass. Hop flavor is more than moderate, but not obnoxious. Similar to aroma, but with an oily and stickiness to the "flavor" if you will. Medium body from a toffee and residual sugar crystal malt flavor. A little sweet, but needed to stand up to the hops in this IPA. honestly, seems more like a DIPA. Some alcohol noted in the finish and warming in the ears. pretty solid beer. would drink many.
