22 oz. bottle poured a clear gold color with almost 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2014
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is vanilla, grapefruit, oranges, pepper, floral, and a light herbal note. It pours a light caramel brown / yellow body topped by a soft, foamy white head. The head retains quite well, with a thick surface remaining throughout, and it leaves a light, runny, mostly clean lace. The taste is a subtle, but medium-high bitter, and a more prevalent medium sweetness. The beer has an oily slick texture with a creamy carbonation and a medium body (fairly malty for an IPA). It finishes with pepper, caramel, and citrus along with some resin and burnt toast coming in later. The caramel, fruit, and burnt toast linger, but are mellow.

Pours cloudy copper with low white head. Aroma of light resin, orange peel, mango, vanilla, light grapefruit. Taste is rounded resin bitter and fruit sweet, very nicely balanced. Body is light to medium, smooth, with soft carbonation.

superspak (2765) - Michigan, USA - JUL 26, 2014
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep gold color with 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, caramel, light toasted bread, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, pineapple, orange peel, caramel, light toasted bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, light toasted bread, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, lightly creamy/bready, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around good complexity and balance of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and fairly crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bomber from Jungle Jim’s Cinncinati Eastside Two of my favorite breweries together at last and what a beautiful baby they’ve spawned. Smooth and consistent: from the first sip to the last bite. I can’t get enough of Revolution.

High expectations upon sampling a beer from this brewery and I was pleasantly unimpressed. Meaning, I liked it. Sure. But was it a "revolution" of taste? No. Simply no. It had an impressive bottle embodying the true ideation of the intended taste. And it made me smile. That's what it's all about right? Happiness while drinking is ideal. However, there are many things that make you smile and the audience determines the elation factor. Today, the audience smiled upon opening yet failed to extend the exuberant continuation of enjoyment after comparison to others within category. Strong drink ability and favorable after taste. So... I can say that twice if needed since it's Dos osos. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Super bright golden orange in color with a bubbly white head, this is pretty clear, almost glassy in appearance. The nose is neat - malty, sweet, and citrusy. More of that neat malty character comes through in the mouth, accompanied by an almost doughy flavor. What a great malt bill! It’s clean, soft, and refreshing. The hops are bright and perfectly balanced, offering a great combination of oily and acidic flavors. It ends with an addictive, slightly bitter, tropical finish that hangs at the top of the tongue.
