Can thanks to joshmcg000. Clear orange pour with a 1-2 finger, creamy eggshell head. Aroma of caramel, berry flavored candy and fruity, citrus and floral hops. Flavor is very much like sampling Cascade/Centennial IPA straight from the fermenter, while dry hopping. Tons of fresh hop flavor, lots of bright fruity citrus, but kinda raw yeast-wise and with lots of residual sugar sweetness. Throw in some caramel and crystal malt and thatís pretty much it.Not that that is a bad thing, other than being a bit too sweet, but the fact that the sweetness makes it like fresh hop juice - if hops had juice - makes that ok. Light to medium body with a slightly syrupy feel on entry, with a light, but sharp carbonation, leading to an off dry finish, with a slightly acidic feel. Pretty damn good overall, the hop notes are a little one dimensional, but very bright and fresh.

Very nice beer. Good hops and citrus - a little bit of breadiness to give it balance. Smooth drinking. Cool can.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a clear orange-gold with a small white head. Notes of citrus fruits (orange and grapefruit), tea, sweet malts, grass, pine, and faint hay. Light-bodied, with a resinous and tea-like mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. I canít believe Iíve had over 20 Revolution beers without having the most common one. Thatís been rectified now. Itís a good IPA.

Can. Darker gold pour, white head. Good retention/some lace. Aroma of citrus, apricot, floral hop, caramel malt. Taste is bitter, apricot, citrus, caramel. Palate is oily, bitter finish.

Pours a light brown with a small white head. Very hoppy aroma. Medium to heavy bitter. Medium to heavy body with a sticky texture and a bitter finish that hangs around quite a while. This is just another IPA that beats you over the head with bitterness.

Aroma is full of citrus hops. Smells like a fresh handful of them. Also smells biscuity malt. Taste is sticky sweet biscuity malt and crisp, clean, citrus hop profile. There is a medium bitterness. Palate is medium full body, sticky mouthfeel, and a pleasant, clean hop finish that is medium in length. I cracked this can open expecting a prototype IPA with nothing special. Instead, I got one of the most pleasant hop tastes Iíve ever had. Highly recommended for people new to IPAs and seasoned beer drinkers alike.

Ataraxia (369) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Clear golden-amber color, white lacing. Mild aroma of grapefruit, bread malt, and pine. Light brown sugar sweetness with equally small resin follow-through. Little carb, smooth, and a bit of chalky dryness in the finish.

pinkzambia (1478) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Tap@ Lou Malnatiís: clear gold color with no head. Juniper shrub aroma with a little bit of citrusy zest. Solid hop backbone with a clear malt presence making it probably more of a balanced IPA. The aftertaste hasna little bit of a musty closet. Tasty.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2014
12 ounce can from Kroger Athens, OH, opened 7/17/14. Pours a clear orange amber with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of dank, citrus, tropical hops and pale malt. The taste is resin, candied citrus, citrus, tropical hops, pale malt and a mild bit of caramel. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness, excellent balance. Nice IPA

daleharshman (909) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 27, 2014
12 ounce can purchased at Brothers Provisions in San Diego...whose beer buyer had brought a bunch of stuff back from the Chicago area in an RV ($6.00). Pours a clear golden amber hue with a half finger of off-white foam comprised of quite large bubbles. AROMA of bready malts, floral hops, and citrus. FLAVOR of grapefruit, sweet tangerine, airy pine forest, with a significant honey and caramel maltiness. Dry and semi-bitter finish. Not very inspiring IPA, though I am admittedly unsure of the freshness. (338, 903)

cpetrone84 (1380) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Pour is hazed pale copper with a good bit of bubbly off white head. Nose is moderate grain presence and some caramel malt. Hops are citrus and strong resin hop and fairly sweet. Taste is even more sweet, strong malt and less grain presence. Lots of caramel and sweet candied fruits. Hops are citrusy, less resin. Medium syrupy body, softer carbonation.
