Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and floral hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew that surpassed my expectations.

A golden IPA with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a sweet caramel with light floral hops, piney character, quite nice. In mouth, a crisp caramel malt with classic floral c-hops, light butterscotch, smooth and caramelly. On tap at brewpub, May 21 2012.

Gold pour, white head. Aroma hits with grassy hop notes up front, some light resin and citrus hops as well. Very floral in the nose and that carries through to the flavor. I get a lot of earthy/floral hops with just enough big citrus bitterness to make this a winner.

GT2 (7863) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Tap at Revolution brewpub location. Clear golden pour with poofy white foam. Big lace. Candied lemon nose with something fishy almost like fermented herring. Taste is tangy, sharper, harsher lemon and candied/stickier citrus. Bizarre.

Drqft at source. Def a dry west coaster mixed with a maltier ipa. Floral aroma citrus dominates flavor. Malt takes the backseat. Slight daank.

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.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a hazy dulled golden amber hue, some glowing orange edges with a decent sized offwhite head atop. Laces small, stays as a small film. Aromas are a moderate dose of citrusy hops, melon, grapefruit. Touches of tropical fruit meld into pale malts, bread, some light toast. Fairly clean with florals and grass. A fruity hop melange on the nose with moderate strength, served a bit cold. Initial is medium bodied pushing a strong bitter hop up front. Florals and grass, pine and big citrus rind. Moving into bitter pink grapefruit and lemons, some melon, gumballs. Middle is still quite bitter, a bit soapy, with some pale and bready malts coming through a bit. Finish stays bitter, tangerine and grapefruit remain strong with some resinous piney hops, grass and florals stick. Touches of soap, a lighter body that offers a plethora of hops. Further in with more bread ane pale malts, still quite fruity and dry sticking on the finishing palate. Sticky grapefruit, some fuzzy peach. Quite flavorful. Very nice hopcentric beer here focusing on a melange of hop flavors, fruity, and pronounced bitterness. Very fresh (of course this is the first day itís on tap) might effect this rating, the malt body does get a little sweet on the finish for me as it warms and the palate gets more accustomed to it. Solid IPA that preaches pretty big complex hop profile. Iím a fan.

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 Iíve tried from Revolution yet
