COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Double Pale Ale with juicy citrus hop flavor from Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo and Chinook hops. We started with the idea of doubling-down on our Iron Fist pale ale recipe, made a few tweaks and ended up with this great beer. Although the name says otherwise, we recommend one at time.

Really good double pale ale. Revolution has quickly become my favorite brewery in Chicago. This is a serious contender for my favorite beer. Really hoppy with lots of citrus on the nose. Grapefruit, pineapple, some kiwi and a brown sugar or honey aroma. It pours a deep, cloudy copper and starts with a nice fluffy head that leaves lots of thick lacing behind. Itís a medium to thick bodied beer and a bit oily feeling. First thing you notice when you sip this is the heavy citrus accents and he hops which arenít overwhelmingly bitter. They donít leave an astringent or bitter aftertaste. You get lots of fruit and honey or brown sugar and lots of caramel at the front and some lingering citrus hops on the back end. All good though. I canít say enough good things about this and the only bad thing is that Iím out of it and need to go get more. Drink this if you like the style and I promise youíll enjoy it.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 9, 2012
On tap at Brew Pub. Pours a slightly cloudy brassy gold color with underneath two fingers of off white foamy head. Major hops aroma with loads of citrus and spicy pinealong with a faint hint of brown sugar. Very hop forward bitterenss with some earthy spice in the taste with a slight amount of citrus. A pungent, robustness to the oily hop flavor. Super dry, medium body, with medium to low carbonation. Alcohol is well-hidden, and the finish contains lots of thick coating hop resins.

Aroma is pine, malts and then very grassy. The flavor is very grassy hops, citrus, malts and a long and bitter finish. Between an IPA and a DIPA, a great ale regardless of the definition.

Nice grapefruit aroma, hins the beer might be full of hops. Flavor is hoppy all the way down to a bitter finish.

Bottle @ Danís house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a dark golden appearance with an off white head. Pretty piney, somewhat dank, a bit floral/herbal aroma. Somewhat spicy, light orange, mango, somewhat piney, a touch resiny flavor. Pretty tasty.
