Enjoyed at a friends place while playing X-Wing on a Sunday. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly floral and citrusy, smells nice. Taste is good, finish is pretty dry, nice apricot notes, light grass, nice complexities, bit of spice.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber stamped APR2114, I assume that is 4-21-2014, poured into a Duvel tulip.
Appearance-Pours a somewhat hazy honey gold orange with a ton of carbonation. This beer sparkles for a bit. The head is white and thin. After a minute it is disappears, leaving moderate lacing.
Aroma-The beer smells fruity and somewhat sweet. It reminds me of a citrus salad dabbed in a little honey. It all seems somewhat subdued though, possibly due to the beer being a couple months old.
Taste-Fruit forward hops hit right away and dominate throughout the entire beer. Grapefruit, oranges, and to a lesser extent pineapple. There is some bitterness that isn’t total resin. Grapefruit really is super prevalent and it’s quite nice. There is a bit of a sweet malt backbone, but it doesn’t get in the way, it actually blends well.
Palate-The beer is juicy and quenching all the way through. Carbonation that seemed extreme at pour is now perfect. The alcohol is invisible and if this wasn’t 7.5% I could drink this all day.
Overall-This beer was pretty unique, albeit a bit one note. It was almost like an amazing citrus juice, just beer. Another outstanding offering from Revolution.

Pours orange honey darker with a white head. Aroma brings sweet refreshing juicy hops with citrus notes. Flavor brings smooth orange with a subtle balance of tang and sweetness, almost like smooth candy. There is no big bite of bitterness or malts at all.

The focus here as you would expect from the name is on the fruity crystal hops. It pours a slightly cloudy orange color. It’s head is of fine bubbles and left behind little spots of lacing as it dissipated. It is lightly sweet w/ firm bitterness. Some iced tea like astringency brings out a subtle peachy note. This beer has a medium body and brisk carbonation. It finishes w/ lingering sweetness and a bit of resinous pine. This is a very nice IPA made from a great hop.

Draft at DMK IN Chicago. Pours a light rich amber with thin head and nice lacing. Nose is hoppy with grapefruit; kind of a zombie dust feel and taste...high praise. Taste is similar; lots of fruit and sweet hops. Some edge but very smooth. Excellent!
