COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Revolution XI, the hop monster that celebrates our 11th Anniversary, is a fat & chewy Imperial IPA that is over the top on hop flavor and aroma. The piney hop character is derived from a blend of five different hop varities: New Zealand Hallertau, Magnum, Chinook, Amarillo, and Simcoe.

Was hoping for more from this one. It was a big disappointment. Minimal hop nose to it. Very sweet with a slight sour taste to it. Could not have been fresh unless this is what they are looking for.

Draft pint at KClingers. Amber with a fully pillowy head. Sugary aroma -- strong medicinal alcoholy creme consistency. Spicy hops, warming a quite big. Quite a bitter edge. Good inner-warming beer. Nice. (#3218, 11/24/2007)

Sweet vegetative nose with a bit of grass. It is very cloying and medicinal on the palate with a very astringent finish.

Bottle. Too sweet. Not even close to being as good as last year’s version. No good.

ChainGangGuy (4949) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Appearance: Clear, deep copper body with a thin, wispy white head. Smell: Caramel malt aroma with dried pineapple rings, grapefruit rinds, and pine-scented cleaning products. Taste: Sweet biscuity maltiness with a touch of caramel. Fruity hop flavors. Hint of pine. Moderate bitterness which lingers into the finish. Bit of fusel alcohol in the finish, too. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: It’s alright, though a bit of a step down from their Revolution X.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2008 Bomber from Bottle Barn! Nose of very sweet flowery hops with a vanilla note; hazy copper with a medium, glass-lacing beige head; flavor of vanilla, spices, sweetness, and hop bitterness. Finish is light bitterness. 6/3/7/3/13/3.2 Draft at the Bistro’s 8th DIPA Fest; Nose of floral hops and caramel; murky copper with a small straw head; flavor well balanced with light caramel and hop bitterness

Sample from a bottle. Cinnamon hop aroma. Light lemon, yeast. Lychee, lime... a bit hard to put down. Very un-unique and unexciting.

22 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op (I think? maybe not?) Aroma is very floral, very sweet, and quite fruity. Hints of strawberries are there. THere is also some definite ethanol present retronasally. A little too sweet. Dark copper/light amber body body that is transparent. Attractive body, with a small, wispy, weak off-white head. Sweet, sugary, malty start. Turns a little grainy and toasted in the middle, but there is still sort of a sweet flavor undermining it. Finishes with some very late, dry, bitter, hoppiness. This is muted by the sugary sweetness. This is more of a barleywine than an IIPA. Either way, this is kind of sweet and cloying and I don’t know. It’s just not working for me.

Very strange drink - Very sweet IPA - rich with a orange peel and corriander essence. Alcohol very evident everywhere in the drink. Spicy and smooth- Does not seem like much of an IPA. Really a disappointment given the quality of their 10th anniversary drink.

2.6
MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Hazy orange with a medium head. Aroma is lightly sweet, almost pilsner like; with fruit leaning to apricot and banana. What the hell?
Bitter and peppery, and tasting more like a saison or Belgian ale with a bit of hops, rather than a big American hop-monster. Goddamn I miss Revolution X.
