3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark copper amber with a thin wispy head. Aroma is dank, vegetal with some floral and spicy notes. Not supper bitter with more savory spicy hop character. Just a touch of sweetness. Some lingering bitterness on the palate. Pleasant carbonation.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Got this in a mixed six-pack from Binny’s in Elmwood Park. I like to try a lot of different types of beer and this seemed like a good way to do it, however, two of the 6 beers I chose were flat (Revolution Bottom’s Up Wit) or had lots of stuff floating in it and skunky. Not sure whether this is the brewers fault or Binny’s, but it disappointing. Smelled skunky and had virtually no head and lots of stuff floating in it. Took a sip before I noticed and just tasted like bitter shit. Wonder if this is quality control on their end or sitting on the shelf too long at the store. Either way it was terrible.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with minimal white head. Smells sweet, some caramel and light hoppiness. Tastes good, not too bitter, very well balanced for an IPA.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper and light amber coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh grassy and caramely hops with a decent amount of malt, some nuts and a bit of maltiness that is noticeable. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and slightly herbal hoppiness with a good malt backbone and a hop flavour that dies very quickly. Aftertaste has more malt and caramel than anything resembling hops. Well balanced, but not much of either makes for an average amber or perhaps an APA, but not an IPA. Overall, a pretty weak IPA that has decent flavours, just not enough of them. I drank this very fresh and had it refrigerated the whole time since I bought it, but still no hops are noticeable. I sampled this twelve ounce stubby bottle purchased from Festival Foods (de Pere) in Green Bay, Wisconsin for US$1.99 on 29-July-2012 sampled at home in Washington on 06-September-2012 a day after returning from Wisconsin.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours ruby/orange with a two finger white head that retains fairly well and leaves behind decent lacing. Aroma is bitter pine and Fusel alcohol. Taste is the same as the nose and is reminiscent of a macrobrew. Pretty unimpressive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper pour with great hop flavor. Had it on tap two different times but neither times was it my first beer of the night.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper color with an off white head. Aroma has nuts, pine, orange, and caramel. Taste has more of the citrus notes that were first detected, that is the pine and orange. Some hops, but not to much. Not much a hoppy bite to it. More bitter with a sticky texture. There isn’t a whole lot going on in this mild IPA. But being as light as it is, it is a nice session beer.

bottle. Pretty underwhelming IPA - very mild in all respects - a nice alternative to those new to IPAs
