Here’s another beer from the Hero series from Revolution Brewing.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This American IPA is brewed with 2-row and Pale malts to establish a smooth malt profile and golden color. We used Apollo, Warrior, Crystal, Cascade and Amarillo hops in the brewhouse to achieve an intense but clean bitterness and aromas and flavors of fresh flowers and citrus juice. Near the end of fermentation we dry-hopped this beer with Mosaic, Citra, Crystal, and Sabro to infuse this IPA with notes of coconut, pineapple and freshly grated citrus rind! The resulting beer is both clean and crisp, bursting with tropical fruit character and very easy drinking even at 70 IBUs and 7% ABV.”
Random: This beer is available in twelve ounce cans and on draft.
The brew poured with a four finger, loose, cream-colored head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left some lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy and bright orange with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was like going on a tropical vacation. I picked up pineapple, mango and orange. There wasn’t any coconut, but this was hop-forward for sure. The taste wasn’t nearly as good as the nose. It leaned more towards the pine and grapefruit hop notes. I did pick up a touch of pineapple and mango at the end of the sip, but I needed more up front. The body was crisp and medium thickness with just enough carbonation. It had a quick finish with sticky pine hops. A can of this was $2.17, which came to $.18 per ounce. This beer was alright, but nothing that I feel the need to revisit.
