3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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)
