COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Double Pale Ale with juicy citrus hop flavor from Centennial, Cascade, Amarillo and Chinook hops. We started with the idea of doubling-down on our Iron Fist pale ale recipe, made a few tweaks and ended up with this great beer. Although the name says otherwise, we recommend one at time.

I like strong ales, and I like Revolutions version. More biscuit and bread than a IPA, yet it does have a considerable, dry-hop, presence. This is not "Arrogant Bastard," this is a different take. Sexual innuendo? Only improves this beers rep.

Pours orange with white head and no lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and light fruit. Taste is the same with moderate bitterness. Very nice.

22oz bottle shared by JohnGonk. Pours a clear amber color with a finger of khaki head. Aroma of sweet citrus fruit, caramel malt, pineapple, and cat pee. Taste of caramel malt, pine, resin, rotted citrus, and toasted malt.

Great sample pour. Pours deep amber gold with white fluffed head. Head dissipates quickly. Nose has great notes of grapefruit and fresh green resin. Great flavor with mild malt backing as plenty of hops up front. Wouldnt have minded more.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2014 On draft @ brewpub, poured into Tulip glass. First impression is slightly peachy when smelled. Also a slight roasty and earthy tone to the aroma. Pours sparklingly clear amber-brown color with a hearty head, with small lace. Initially tastes of grapes, grapefruit, orange, and peaches. Has a bit of a caramel (or maybe honey) on the finish; caramel / honey is briefly intense, but dissolves quickly as the swallow. As the drink warms, it turns to a more apple flavor. Its a very clean, crisp, fizzy mouth-feel. Leaves a very light, earthy coating to the mouth, but nothing like an IPA, nothing more than to be expected of an APA. A nice balance of sweet, bitter, and sour, without being too much of any one (although more sweet & bitter than sour). A bit more hop-kick than an American Pale, but not quite as hoppy as an IPA; reaches a happy medium somewhere in between.

Bottle dated Dec 05 2012, received Aug 2013. Getting to try this one a day after its 1 year birthday! Orangish straw, dark and thick, moderate frothy white head, so-so lacing. Powdery pixie stix nose, likely because of age, but also citrus peel and pith. Reminds me a lot of the one right before this (TV Party), albeit this one seems to have a bit more malt body. Seems to be a touch candied as well. Feels a bit more warming than TV Party. Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full. Finishes very citrusy. Given that its been a year (and a day), seems to have held up fairly well. The Pixie Stix aspect isnt too strong on the tongue. Thanks Kevin!

Tap at Revolution Brewing, Milwaulkee Ave, Chicago. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is very weak malt. The flavour is strong bitter with a big liqourice malt slightly medicinal palate. I did enjoy this beer but I cant justify the high rating that others have given it.

22oz bomber bought for $9 at The Beer Temple in Chicago, IL. Bottled 4/12/13 ... a touch old, since its 7/9, but Ill make it work. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Appearance: Clear, and dark amber in color. Theres a great finger or two of sand colored head that lasts for quite awhile. Sticky lacing only lasts near the top of the glass. Smell: Just bursting with hops, as Id expect given the style. Massive tropical fruit-esque aromas sit on top of a slight alcohol note. Caramel malts seem to be buried in the background. Smells awesome. Taste/feel: Rather than tropical fruits, the flavor has a pretty huge pine flavor with some sticky resin. The front is a lot of pine, then its grassy, then spicy for just a moment, and then the finish is of rich (and somewhat "dirty" or "dusty") tasting malt to balance it all out almost perfectly. The alcohol that I pick up in the smell only comes through *slightly* as a warmth in the mouth. As I was expecting with this brew, theres a solid body to it with just a slight prickly carbonation that makes the taste buds come alive. I think Im in love. This is outstanding stuff. I notice some people say that this is overly sweet, but I dont get that vibe at all. If anything, its maybe a *touch* unbalanced because of BITTERNESS and not sweetness. IIPAs that Ive had tend to be sweeter than bitter, so this is actually sort of unusual for me. Double Fist is my second and last beer from Revolution that I brought home from Chicago over the weekend... I need more. I fucking NEED MORE. Anti-Hero is a fantastic, sessionable IPA, and this is basically a "World Class" Imperial, in my opinion. Worth seeking out.
