This IPA shoots a raygun blast of Galaxy and Zythos hops into your mouth and leaves a crisp, dry finish.

Bottle to glass. Pours a clear golden color with a medium off white head. Aroma is citrusy, fleshy fruits, banana, caramel, molasses. Flavor is mildly bitter with a good sweetness. Light to medium in body with an oily palate. Very tasty. Revolution has stepped up their game for sure.

Bottle- pours clear deep golden, fluffy white 1 finger head. Nose is super fruity, tangerine, roses and a bit of grassy notes. Nectarine resinous hops, light caramel malts and some honey sweetness. Medium bodied, some stickiness, lingering finish. We'll put together and balanced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very nice release from Revolution is par for the course. A great option for a nightcap, this has lots of depth without being overboard. The experience makes me want to grab a few more off the shelves.

Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent coppery base has an obvious carbonation and crisp white head. Peaches, citrus, and open textures of a fresh IPA warm the air with the smell of a spring orchard. It is almost like an alcoholic peach iced tea.

Flavor / Palate - Peach and vanilla cream ale refresh the palate. Bright citrus hops transition to a mellow finish. Rather than hit the senses all at once it builds over time. A top notch Midwestern IPA deserves all the praise it gets on the site.

superspak (2419) - Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2014
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy deep gold color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big mango, tangerine, pineapple, passion fruit, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate pale malt balance; with good strength. Taste of big mango, tangerine, pineapple, passion fruit, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, tangerine, pineapple, passion fruit, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops with moderate pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome IPA. All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

wlajwl (3746) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Aroma is strong tropical fruit, light citrus and a hint of earthy malts. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit, fruit/berries, malts and a bitter/tangy finish.

Love this ipa from revolution. Galaxy hopps are just awesome. Super citruscy and hoppy. Very flavorful yet easy to drink. Had a bomber at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a thick off-white head. Aroma of malt, pine and grapefruit. Malty flavor, giving way to onion and pine before a bitter grapefruit finish.

Barnoloid (115) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2014
22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Wow, this is an IPA that fits perfectly with the season. Fresh cut grass melds with a balanced medium mouthfeel and finishes with a pleasant bitterness. The Galaxy hop is a newly distinguished profile for me and this beer leaves me wanting more. Revolution has crafted a strongly balanced offering here where it would be tempting to ramp this up to a DIPA. A solid choice if available at your local bottle shop.

tmoreau (2288) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2014
A 12 oz. draft at Lunar Brewing Co., dispensed to a Czech-pils glass, showing a clear, deep golden color, with a modest layer of white head foam, and thin, but clingy strands of web-like lacing. The nose was expressive grapefruit, with some tropical sweetness, and a touch of resin. Medium- bodied, the taste presented decent malt, and a medium hop bitterness that was rind-like, and showed a moderately lingering nature. Not a big IPA, should’ve been a shaker for the price, but nicely hopped, crisp & drinkable.
