3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at Tribes (Mokena, IL). Was able to stow away for a bit to finally try this. Pours a deeper orange amber hue. A bit darker, decent haziness with frothy whitish head atop. Nice layer sticks around, laces ok overall. Aromas show bitter lemon and grapefruit, touches of florals, mellow gumball. A bit earthy, floral, but citrus dominant overall as we take it all in. Mellow bready malt kick with the fruity sweetness upping the ante just a bit. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied overall, significant citric slant with lots of grapefruit, lemon, some orange slants. A bit pithy, juicy with touches of florals, mellow bread into middle. Soapy and floral bitterness as we hit the backend, some sweetness beneath. Sustained bitterness presses on with florals, middling bitterness into bakend. Touches of pineapple, citrus, guava linger on. Nice fruity boost, the bitterness is a firm fruit, mellow sweetness mix. Nice hop profile overall with decent bitterness. Some sweetness, melon, fruit a bit if toffee. Earthy and floral bitter finish. Nice offering. Solid nose and appearance, a good beer all around with more fruit overall, sufficient bitterness.

Revolutions Hero line up has done it again this time teaming up with Tribes Alehouse. All I can say is you will not be disappointed by this beer, hopefully it will become more than a one off and make it into Revolutions Hero lineup on the regular.

The aroma is overwhelming citrus/grapefruit. The color is bright and clear, something a bit different for most IPAs that I enjoy. The taste is tremendous with a nice bite and a lingering finish. Feels refreshing on the palate. Overall, this beer is one of the best citrus bombs that I have tasted without the hops taking command of the entire process. Don’t miss this one!!

Soooooo yummy! Had it at the brewpub and at Tribes! (Both of them!)
Super flavorful with a fruit up front and citrus in the finish and just enough malt to keep you happy. REALLY Hope they do this again! Way to go Revolution and Tribes (Thanks Rev Guys for playing with the Tribes boys!)

Mostly clear pale copper or brown/gold pour with healthy half inch of white head and lacing. Bright hoppy aroma, fresh floral, tropical fruit, biscuit malt. Soft carbonation, viscous mouthfeel, crisp assertive finish. Tropical fruit flavors, resinous and floral hops and a bit of toffee.

One of the best collaborative IPAs I have ever tried!
Not super bitter, very fruit forward. Slightly sweet from thin malts, color was very bright without a hint of haze.
Very citrusy on the back end and had a great finish!
