COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale La Reverend is a distinctively dry and light bodied Indian Pale Ale with an appealing golden hue. It has a thirst-quenching crispness and is laden with citrus and spruce hop aromas. Semi-sweet malt provides a backdrop for mild earthy flavors and slight grassy notes. Double dry-hop additions allows for a lower alcohol level while still providing the entire hop effect expected of a classic IPA.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Appearance: Pours like a pop with a head that’s virtually nonexistent. No lacing... lots of carbonation.

Smell: All grapefruit with minute traces of hops.

Taste/Feel: Graprefruity hops with only a slight bit of malt on the finish as well. Pretty good. There’s also some spice in there, which makes things a little more interesting. The feel is disappointing to me though... very thin, and WAY too carbonated.

Short review, because I just don’t care for this one from Short’s much at all. To cut through the bitterness and to spice things up I added a lemon, which spruced things up a bit, but I’m not too high on this beer. The rating really astounds me... a truly unremarkable beer from a normally remarkable brewery.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle. Decent for a session beer. That being said the hoppy/piney aroma was baked up with a quick finishing mild flavor. A bit bitter at the end.

Very hazy amber beer, fluffy white head. Crispy palate. Lovely fresh hops. Tangerine - orange and fresh yellow grapefruit. Pine. Mild minerals. Gets a little sweeter before the finish. Minerally bitter aftertaste. Great flavour for a little beer.

3.5
esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Hazy golden amber with a large and in charge slowly fading off-white crown. Aroma of heavy floral notes with biscuity notes, sweet malt and citrus. Taste of floral and citrus hops with earthy and vegetal notes and a moderate bitter finish.

2.5
BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle and served in pint glass: Pours a hazy golden hue with a nice head and lace. Holy Grapefruit Rind Batman! Both the nose and palate are dominated by grapefruit rind that approaches being aspirin like with astringency, tannin and dryness. Some biscuit and pale wheat notes as well. Major one note brew, interesting but not something I would want to have again.

3.4
wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy golden. Small white head. Some lacing. Big grapefruit aroma. Flavor of bitter, but not as clear as the aroma. Palate a little light, but understandable for a session IPA. Nice lingering bitter hop mouthfeel. Highly drinkable session beer.
