COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A "Central Coast" style IPA brewed with Firestone Walker’s Dustin Kral. Jim and Dustin used five different hops for a crisp bitterness and two separate dry-hoppings for a distinct floral and citrus bouquet.

FINALLY, a Revolution brew I can get excited about (they need a little Firestone in ’em. . . ). First, I love a beer that keeps you guessing, and this one pours straw colored with minimal carbonation, basically masquerading as a session ale or something. . . And then you smell what may be one of the most pronounce peach notes ever smelled in an IPA. Game on. The taste, likewise, completely betrays the appearance-- this is a big DIPA with nice sharp (invisible) carbonation. Also, not very fruity or sweet on taste, so that nose is all nose. Very drinkable, although I kept on looking down thinking someone must have switched my beer, because what I tasted is not a straw colored flat ale. Good show. I’m buying more just for the peach notes.

Pours a clear copper golden color with a nice small head. Nose is fresh citrus and pine. Taste is nothing but flavor, deep rich citrus with pine and balanced bitterness and sweetness. Finishes well on the same notes, unfortunately this had to be shared with my two sons, dam it. quaff score 8 / 10 , hey T Monk right behind us again. Cheers CCEX !!

Pours a clear copper with a white head and aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is bitter upfront, lots of hops, citrus, grapefruit, and grass notes while sweet with a nice bitter, smooth finish. Excellent IPA, delicious and very drinkable, nice collaboration with Firestone

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 22oz bomber thanks to JohnGonk. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thick lingering fluffy white head. Big aroma of grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Taste is full of grapefruit, and pine bitterness, with a nice malty backbone. Well balanced. Nice collaboration

BOmber pours a clear golden/orange with white head and slight lacing. Aroma is fairly complex. Grapefruit, pine resin, and light caramel malts are all obvious, with perhaps some passion fruit and a bit of grassiness. Taste is mildly bitter with some sweetness in the middle before the big dry finish. This one is more hop-forward than malt-forward, but not a hop bomb either. Body is medium with below average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel for an IPA. Very easily drinkable and well worth another try.

Pour is golden with a thin head that disappears quickly. Nose is strong hoppiness with pine and citrus rind. Taste is very nice with good hop flavor with citrus and pine. Mouthfeel is light but not thin. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle, shared by b3shine. Bottled May/23/13. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Decent spread of lace, after some swishing. Wow, great big potent hop aroma. Big citrus, grapefruit. Light pine. Some grassiness in the flavor, citrus zest. Medium to bigger body. Crisp, lighter carbonation. Tropical fruit, some berries in that hop profile. Zesty light sweet taste, moderate bitter. Light biscuity malt, minimal caramel malt. Outstanding IPA. For sure, best IPA I’ve tried from Revolution yet

22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Pours a clear gold color with no head. A little flat looking out of the bottle. Nice, complex hop aroma: floral, piney, citrusy, and herbal, with a moderate pale and sweet malt backbone. Flavor follows suit. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that suggests citrusy bitterness. Good summer IPA.

Aroma is pine, grassy hops and a small hint of sweetness. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, mildly sweet malts, fruit and a dryish and bitter/hoppy finish.
