Draft at Revolution. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a billowy, fluffy head. Nose is a bit grassy, distant lemon and orange-blossom. Also a bit of a bready note as well. Not really much lemongrass in there compared to when Ive brewed 100% SA beers in the past. On taste, there is an astringent note that comes through, along with citrus peel and a light and clean bitterness. Also perceiving some alcohol. Nice full body and round mouthfeel. Decent.

Sampled at Revolution. Poured a clear orange amber with an off-white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was a balance of citrus and pine with a slight hint of pine. Flavor was similar with a citrus start and growing pine towards the finish.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2011 Draft at revolution. Pours hazed light golden with white head. A big lemon grass and wheat malt aroma, flavors continue with over powering lemon grass, lawn clippings, wheat malt, and mild orange peel finish. Theres also an obnoxious fizzy carbonation and when combined with the wheat it comes off like a mouth full. This is really an American wheat so why are they calling it an ipa? Would that even sell better? 3.4 7/27/11 draft, 2011 version, this time it comes off more like an IPA with a touch of wheat in the base. pretty solid, nice and refreshing. Not a huge hop bomb but good citrus fruit, grass, and pine going on. really drinkable. 3.7

I have been to Revolution a few times now and they are always out of their IPA when I drop by so it was nice to get to finally try one and, I must say, I can see why they run out fast. Id say this is most definitely one of the best Ive had from them. The color is a cloudy orange golden topped w/ a foamy head of mixed but mostly small bubbles. The lacing lasts in nice sheets. Bright and lemony citrus character w/ earthy bitterness in the finish. Rather dry and mildly astringent. As it warms, a bit of tartness comes out and a nice floral character. Sweetness comes out as well but the vigorous carbonation keeps it nice and drinkable. This is a really solid IPA and one you can drink in quantity. In fact, in these days of ever increasing gravities, a lot of brewers would go ahead and call this an APA. To me, this is a positive as Revolution really packs in a lot of flavor for the gravity.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice glowing orange amber, good fiery glow with haze, small offwhite head dies to a small head, laces small. Aromas are a big blast of grapefruit and peach, mango and juicy fruits with decent florals and citrusy hop bite. Some malty biscuits and bread, pale malts with a light wheaty ester. Initial is medium bodied, a huge peach and grapefruit feel, moderate fruity bitterness, citrus and florals, very juicy with good bitterness and pale and bready. Dry florals and a touch of flaked wheat does indeed peak through. Nice bitterness, good balance, a lot of juicy fruit especially and more sessionable than say other IPAs. Very nice, fresh, "juicy". These Revo IPAs have some great hop flavors. Cheers.

pantanap (3353) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Sample from revbrew...pours a semi-hazy medium amber brown pour with a thin white head... Aroma of fresh and assertive citrus on the sweeter side with tangerine and other fruity notes... Flavors are much of the same with a good sweet citrus tangerine moreso than the wheat aspect. Very nicely done overall.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Pours cloudy amber orange. Forms a small white head on pour that doesnt leave much lacing. Aroma is funky, pungent, sour citrus, bitter hops, earthy yeast, and a little bit of malt showing in there. Flavor is hop-forward, bitter, lemony sour-tart citrus (not juicy like youd find in an American-style IPA), earthy, and some ginger spice; minimal malt backbone but not much sweetness. Kinda weird. This works as an experimental showcase beer, but like a sterile house that feels more like a museum than a home, its not something Id want to live with every day.
